Scented Playful Sinners

By Yasmin Ayture

Sinners only access! There’s a thin line between nature and the world of horror and mischief. Often associated only with purity and innocence, nature actually has many sides: power, contradictions, freedom, roughness, mystery. Perfumes which harness nature draw on this unity and contradiction, producing fragrances which allow you to be as sinful as you want to be and more. A mixture of Earth’s intensities is the secret behind fragrances which strike out as scented playful sinners. Read more in Scented Playful Sinners!

You are encouraged to sin with Jean Paul Gaultier’s stunning La Belle Le Parfum as his fragrance tears out the most opulent sides of nature and packs them tightly into a bottle. This perfume invites us to succumb to lust, gluttony or sloth, in a juicy, decadent Gaultier way. With keynotes of vanilla, tonka and pear, it is feminine but bolder, taking risks and experimenting to create a magnetic and powerful fragrance.

Bvlgari, a luxury Italian brand famed for its jewellery, watches, fragrances, accessories and leather goods have released a new perfume Bvlgari Man Terrae Essence. Combining intensity and nature’s most instinctive and wild complexion. Earth’s essence is intense, wild, spirited and unimaginably magnificent. Bvlgari Man Terrae Essence is an emergence of this very authenticity; it is the power of Earth captivated in a woody vetiver scent that sets you free.

Bvlgari Man Terrae Essence is rich with Citron essence and Calamanzi accord which gives a sweetly bitter combination that bursts wildly. This union harmonises with the Vetiver Essence Duo, Orris Concrete and signature Terrae Accord and Styrax Essence, curated for envelope Earth’s most vivacious and grounded parts.

For each Bvlgari Man Terrae Essence fragrance sold, one tree will be planted through World Land Trust’s Plant a Tree programme as Bvlgari Parfums have recently renewed this special donation. Currently, reforestation projects in Brazil, Borneo, Kenya and India are being supported so that tropical forest habitats there can be restored and brought back to vitality. It is available exclusively from John Lewis now and at other retailers from September 2021.

Carolina Herrera’s Ch Under the Sea perfume is fresh and joyful in two bottles, one for her and one for him, salty and bubbly like a mermaid’s spell.

For the woman, it’s keynotes are amber, vanilla, coconut, pink grapefruit, and red seaweed and ylang ylang plant, with the sweet and milky elements being counterbalanced with sour and bold tones.

For men, its scented playful sinners are ingredients forming a powerful aquatic freshness with keynotes of wood, vanilla, violet leaves, pepper and juniper berries: spicy and vibrant with a daring bit of intriguing softness.

Perfume allows you to behave and act in the ways you usually dare not to…to do and say the things you have secretly wanted to: to sin and be good at the same time.
