Best floral perfumes 2019
Welcome warmer weather with a spritz of something a little familiar — but totally new at the same time. These just-launched fragrances give floral notes major play while balancing the blooms with unexpected ingredients like coconut water, honey pear and oakmoss.
Spring is felt by many as this miraculous experience when the whole world comes back to life, after you almost started thinking everything was dead for good. Slowly but surely the world becomes colored again, and the scent of delicious greenery and budding flowers starts spreading around you.
It turns out that beneath the cold hard ground, the plants and trees were preparing for rebirth all along! Spring gives us hope, renewed excitement, and zest for life, and certain fragrances are a perfect fit for this optimistic mood.
This spring, six of Fragrantica’s editors picked their favorite fragrances that signal spring to them, zooming in on Modern Florals to highlight a more specific group within the family of spring feeling scents!
Nominating a floral as “modern,” in the sense of contemporary, means that we eschew the notions of stereotypical femininity that accompany most classical florals; operatic white florals, dainty rose, warm tendrils of tender softness…
An unexpected structure, or a whimsical injection of a humorous note, can do the difference, added to a diaphanous evolution that does not sit on the shoulders like a fur wrap but like a gauzy scarf.
The re-emergence of fresh ginger notes came to the fore with a bang via Hermès; the brand is on the vanguard of major trends, without selling out, and I consider it a pioneer in consolidating newer directions to the mind of the public.
Twilly’s novelty factor lies in upturning the tables once again indeed.
Twilly, as I have analysed in its “sparring” with Chanel’s Gabrielle, hits all the right spots with street smarts coupled with an impressive pedigree; it basically had Gabrielle for lunch. But that’s beside the point when it comes to its composite elements that help make it memorable.
The ginger is treated like a gauze. It’s never scathing or too hot to handle and its interlacing with the white floralcy of tuberose seems novel and familiar all at once.
It’s impossible not to like it. Twilly’s success on the market will probably be used as a focus group litmus test for other perfumes to come… so its ginger note is one that begs attention.
The fragrance looks like a kaleidoscope of green, floral, and even earthy and woody nuances, passing before your nostrils in quick succession, as if buoyed by the golden light of a glorious afternoon full of grace when everything seems to happily melt unto itself.
Twilly by Hermes doesn’t remind me of any other fragrance I know, which is admirable in today’s market, and it’s witty enough, light enough to appeal to younger women without appearing condescending in the least.
Nevertheless, its very memorability lies in the delicate and rather sophisticated interweaving of fresh spiciness and carnal sensuality without recalling any particular genre: is it spicy floral? is it a citrusy woody? is it floral woody musky? It’s a puzzle, but a good one!
More than that, even the packaging of Twilly suggests a playfulness that is more in tune with contemporary notions of wearability rather than overboard romanticism.
It’s whimsical enough, and probably that bowler hat lends an androgynous touch, to make it a good contestant even for men.
Some of you were probably expecting to see one of Jeffrey Dame’s Soliflore Perfume oils mentioned here, since they have quite the name when it comes to the photorealistic resemblance of living flowers, and aren’t pure flowers practically a synonym for spring time?
Well, I agree, I could have easily picked the house’s beautiful Peony soliflore, for instance, and told you I feel a bit of spring the minute I roll it onto my skin.
But the house recently launched JD Mimosa Mixte, a fragrance under Jeffrey Dame’s JD JEFFREY DAME Postmodern Perfume Collection label, and the minute I smelled it, I felt spring was here!
The fragrance smells like yellow spring flowers, mimosa in the lead, and is blended with mandarin, basil, bergamot, violet, ylang ylang, heliotrope, sandalwood, vanilla and musk.
At first I get a citrus opening with floral aspects, which has a bit of a bite to it but already hints at the soft pom poms of mimosa that are awaiting you.
Upon further development, the characteristic pollen-like scent of mimosa finds itself center stage, evoking the scent of fresh air lightly warmed by the sun, and supported by a blend of the other flowers already mentioned, as well as musk. It’s powdery, but not in the way we usually smell it:
Here there’s no make up powder, nor baby powder… It’s flower powder! Mimosa Mixte ends with a fluffy floral gleam on the skin, honeyed, with a romantic and innocent vibe. Wearing this, you’ll be announcing clearly to everyone: Spring is in the air!
Totally White is a fragrance inspired by a walk in the French “Parc Monceau,” which pays tribute to Parisian gardens, more specifically to white flowers and lilac, a flower that is not so common in the world of fine fragrance creation because it has been unfortunately over-used in functional perfumery.
What a pity! Its suave, bright, refined, sweet, almondy, dense, textured scent is a pleasure to smell, immediately reminding us of spring time and the beginning of sunny days…
There are a few fragrances that explore the smell of lilac, among which one of the more famous is En Passant, signed by Olivia Giacobetti for Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle; a delicate and breezy lilac, an olfactive poetic moment.
Another one is Totally White composed by Michel Almairac for his own brand Parle moi de Parfum. A cosmetic and airy white floral bouquet that exhales a very modern breath, with a very uplifting and invigorating trail.
At the opposite end of the spectrum of the classic Diorissimo for instance, this fragrance is build around a lilac and lily of the valley accord, that doesn’t feel retro at all. A cosmetic smell, a little bit powdery, but in a light way, is written with simplicity.
The white bouquet is laid down on a very musky base that gives comfort and a velvety feel to the fragrance, which remains light and airy until the end.
It’s spring in Cairo; though usually humid and very warm, this year it’s cooler than expected with a scented airy breeze through the day, which is a blessing before our sizzling summer.
Full-blown gardens are already here; a refreshing landscape blooms over southern Cairo, beautifully filling the air with various volatile compounds.
Though I’m lately under the spell of tuberose, I couldn’t help but indulging in roses; a bouquet of big, fresh and velvet roses as a theme this spring, and I was lucky to finally discover A La Rose.
While A La Rose is a minimal scent, it doesn’t fall short to dazzle; it – for a moment – seems to follow the recurring theme of many other rose compositions, but after a while it develops to fit the bill.
After a briefly illuminated citrus opening, rose takes the lead and starts to reveal herself softly and in tune with her surroundings; like the sweet freshness of early spring, dewy but with a lazy feeling.
The composition displays every piece of the plant: flowers, leaves, buds and stems, all placed transparently on the finest green chord – it works as a catalyst to empower the fine rose accord instead of overshadowing it.
The fragrance becomes more floral with time; very rich, a delicate power enhanced with a subtle bouquet of violets and faded whiffs of peony and gardenia in the heart.
What seemed to be glossy and lavish is now quenched and contained without being suppressed.
A La Rose seems to deny any juicy sweetness as it grows, and it continues the lively spiciness of the peppery opening as well. It turns more to rosewood, with a vague musky base.
While it fulfills a true floral with a composition that does smell exactly as the sum of its ingredients, it turns out to be extremely sophisticated and luxurious, like a contemporary niche work.
Its like a watercolor portrait or a hologram of a rose instead of the classic rose garden.
A La Rose is a luxury fragrance to smell fresh and dewy; it’s not what I would wear to impress, but rather to enjoy the elegance, beauty and power of roses in a light pastel linen dress, having a sunny breakfast by the Nile. Happy Spring everybody!
Spring and Flowers are two words that to me represent ideas like life, opulence, joy… Flowers are flamboyant pieces of nature, in all their aspects of sexuality, color, beauty, magic, and olfactory wonders.
In Aulentissima’s Jardin de Marrakesh, we are offered an intensely happy bouquet of jasmine, tuberose and rose. And to make it even more lively, these flowers come sprinkled with some fruity juices.
These fruits, I smell them as grapefruits, lemons and oranges, with a touch of neroli to make them less ripe and more fresh, a bit bitter and bracing.
I also smell orange blossom, but I guess I am making this up, since the official pyramid is smaller than what I am smelling on my arm.
Jardin de Marrakesh has the feeling of those late spring mornings when the sunlight is already intense but the weather is not too warm.
There is the promise of summer and the optimistic vibes of a relaxed Sunday. But there is also a lot of energy that comes from the citric notes. In contrast, the woody base is strong and enveloping and it almost brings to it an oriental aspect.
The fragrance is intense and assertive, and while it has a certain classic personality, it is timeless and therefore, forever modern.
When ‘modern’ and ‘floral’ appear together, this conjures up enjoyment of simplicity (or what seems to be simple,) and the olfactive comfort of responsible scent consumption for our personal delight within a modern aesthetic and scent etiquettes.
After testing some power-house bold florals of the 80s, experiencing a huge unisex and aquatic inception in the 90s, and gradually being bombarded by what I regard as a sweet-16 shampoo residual wish-wash candied-floral-fruity trend in the 2000s…
What I’d consider ‘modern florals’ these days are actually the ones which are as functional as your everyday household fragrance additives—low key, versatile, as comfortable as background white noise.
But on top of that, and at the same time, they definitely have to possess that special something which gives them a core filled with class and elegance.
Most of Hermes’ offerings seem to have that special watercolored, Zen-like charm, somewhat insolent from a world filled with noise and passing trends, yet always smelling contemporary with a pedigree. In my book, their Jour d’Hermes is one of the best floral representations of polite modern sentiment and quality.
Jour d’Hermes showcases a luminous, carefully orchestrated quality composition designed by the then in-house perfumer of Hermes—Jean Claude Ellena.
It is a white floral scent with abstract dewy grapefruit, refreshing sweet pea, and a demure, non-idolic jasmine-gardenia theme.
It revolutionized how I see these rather heady or sharp ingredients, and now even a 99% white-floral intolerant perfumista like me leaves her comfort zone, and handles it rather well. If there’s such a thing as a politically correct white floral, then this must be it!
Never too frivolous, never boastful… Just a watercolored luminous dream of early spring and endless awakening.
Slightly introverted, typically intellectual, definitively quietly charming, highly possibly a classic after a few decades, and unarguably modern in the discreet and functional sector; this luminous abstract floral scent named Jour d’Hermes is all of the above and more.
During the dark days of winter, our thoughts turn to the flowers of spring. Your garden may not be blooming yet, but April is the perfect month to wear floral fragrances that will remind you of the warmer days ahead. From complex blends of many flowers to a soliflores (single flower), there is sure to be one for you.
Carefree uncomplicated fragrances are perfect for Spring. Marc Jacobs Daisy is a sun warmed blend of wild strawberry, violet leaves, red grapefruit, gardenia, violet, jasmine, musk, and vanilla. The bottle top, with its floral daisy stopper is as cheerful as a walk through a garden.
Like your fragrances Rosy? Try Valentino Rock and Rose, inspired by a new generation of modern women who have both style and attitude. Rock and Rose is a fruity, airy ode to the most romantic of flowers that can be worn for any occasion. This is a perfume that takes you from the office to cocktails. Forget fussy old-fashioned rose perfumes; this is a modern rose with edgy notes of patchouli and dark musk.
Bring the garden indoors with Gucci Flora. It’s is bright and feminine bouquet of pink peony, roses, apricot-scented osmanthus wrapped in vanilla and creamy sandalwood that is elegant and feminine. We love the bottle design which is based on Princess Grace of Monaco’s Gucci scarf.
Sweet Pea is the flower for April. Sound demure? Play for Her by Givenchy is a lush floral with notes of tiare and sweat pea that pop with pink pepper and a musky, woody drydown. Housed in a bottle that resembles a MP3 player, it is the perfect scent to cheer you up on a rainy day.
Longing for a flirty floral? Kenzo Flower is bright, light and spontaneous. The first poppy fragrance ever created, this soft scent, with notes of rose, palma violets and cassie is great for the city girl who wants to reconnect with nature. Flower, like spring will make you feel renewed.
Violets are one of the first flowers to bloom in spring. Sometimes thought of as old-fashioned and for women only, it all depends on where violet is placed; it can be used in a sweet fruity floral like Paris Hilton Heiress with notes of bubbly champagne, passionfruit and juicy peach or in a green-aromatic masculine scent like the distinctive Gucci Pour Homme Ii, with its notes of violet leaves, black tea, tobacco and wood.
Florals aren’t for women only. Feeling fearless? We recommend Bandit by Robert Piguet which surrounds neroli, jasmine and tuberose with smoky leather and musk. Sophisticated and sexy for bad boys and the girls who love them.
