Fave Five: Olfactory Scents

When uttering the sentence “You smell like…” you always hope it’s going to end with a positive adjective. Being an office of women, we are always sniffing out new scents. Here are the top five scents that rub us the right way:

It’s the bomb
Viktor & Rolf have spritzed their way into our hearts with Flowerbomb. Launched in 2005, the perfume is the exact combination of spicy and sweet. Floral meet pepper. With the women’s parfum such a hit, it wouldn’t be fair to exclude the men. Spicebomb has just exploded in Canada. Literally. The bottle looks just like a grenade, with the inside smelling like tobacco, cinnamon and spice. Although geared towards our male counterparts, we want to get our hands on a bottle for ourselves. 

It’s free-flowing
Chloé takes sensual and puts it in a bottle for women. Flowery but not overwhelming, soft but not too delicate, powdery but not too much like talcum, this perfume evokes femininity. Disclaimer: this scent is distinct and picky about whose chemistry it works with. Spritz and walk away. If you like the smell after 10 minutes, come back for more. 

It’s intoxicating
Miss Dior is meant to bring all the boys to the yard. With notes of Egyptian jasmine, patchouli and Italian mandarin, this perfume uses global influences that make it universally appealing. When you smell like Miss Dior, you smell like love.

It’s calming
Take your feelings of serenity and put them in a bottle. Result: Lollia Relax. Lavender is soothing, the bee blossom honey with white orchids is warm, and the combination envelopes you in a world of peace. 

It’s classic
The name ‘Chanel’ speaks for itself, as does the word ‘allure’. Put them together and you have a sophisticated and timeless fragrance. This scent evokes times past, and well, reminiscing always makes us feel happy.
