Transform: Your Senses in Floral

By Jo Phillips

Just as fashion trends change, so do the favourable and most sought after scents. However, for the last few years there hasn’t been much change in the clearly popular choice.

After a short while of muskier woody scents and bold oriental aromas, the past few years have seen that lighter, florally fragrances have taken over. Flowers such as lily, jasmine and lavender are blended together to create romantic and sweet scents while men’s fragrances tend to be laced with orange blossom to create a more alluring tone. The power of these floral aromas falls down to them being able to portray a sexy and sensual persona with one set of components while a different blend can portray something a lot more feminine and elegant; their versatility making them so desirable. Floral fragrances hold the ability to keep the wearer feeling fresh and beautiful, it’s no question why these are the perennial favourites this year. Especially apt for the summer the favourable trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon.

See our stunning shoot below for an insight of an array of breathtaking floral fragrances available now.
