Refresh your scent with some of the best-rated fragrances out this spring.
It’s 2020 and if you have been spritzing the same old fragrance for quite some time now, perhaps a new signature scent could help boost your mood this season. Here are our picks of fresh, new perfumes to look out for this Spring/Summer 2020.
Miss Dior Rose N’Roses
As the name might suggest, Miss Dior Rose N’Roses isn’t inspired by just the rose - it’s inspired by an abundance of roses, and then even more roses. As Dior Perfumer-Creator, Francois Demachy said, the idea was to bring to mind a floral profusion akin to the power of nature, like when he first saw flower fields blooming in May as a child. Indeed, the heart of the Miss Dior Rose N’Roses Eau de Toilette is the Grasse Rose, from the South of France, traditionally harvested by hand every May, to preserve its beauty as well as its essence. Meanwhile, it is complemented by top notes of Italian mandarin, bergamot, and geranium essence, with a white musk base. This results in a full-on floral scent that’s uplifting and refreshing, perfect for starting the day on an upbeat note.
Miss Dior Rose N’Roses can be found at the Dior boutique at the Main Terminal Building, KLIA, at Level 5.
Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Profondo
The latest fragrance from Giorgio Armani’s popular Acqua di Gio line, Acqua di Gio Profondo for men was created as an expression of freedom and embracing of nature. It falls under the “Aromatic Fougere” fragrance category and is a blend of top notes of bergamot, green mandarin, scents of the sea, and aquozone; middle notes of rosemary, lavender, cypress and lenstique; with base notes of amber, patchouli, musk and minera amaryllis. The clean scent has been described as fresh and zesty, and hints at tropical climes, bringing to mind a sense of adventure and discovery. Definitely a scent for the young and optimistic!

Jo Malone London Mimosa and Cardamom Cologne
Having been described as warm and spicy, Jo Malone London’s Mimosa and Cardamom Cologne is actually lighter than it sounds. The scent is subtle, yet stays all day, with notes of golden mimosa, crushed cardamom, sandalwood, heliotrope and Damask rose all blended into one formulation. It’s actually perfect for cold days or for going out at night, with a hint of vanilla muskiness to inject a sensation of warmth and comfort. Although a cologne, the scent is a favourite with women, with many citing its neutral scent as a pull factor for the Jo Malone London Mimosa and Cardamom cologne to be their signature scent of the season.
The Jo Malone London boutique at KLIA is located at the Satellite Building, on Level 1, as well as Contact Pier International, KLIA.
L’Occitane L’Homme Cologne Cedrat
Inspired by the French Provence in the southern region of the country, the L’Occitane L’Homme Cologne Cedrat is based on the concept of escape. A fitting concept, considering how the region is where the resort towns of Nice, Cannes and St Tropez, among others, are located - locations that are perfect for a short escape or getaway. The scent itself is vibrant, like the towns; aquatic, a nod to the Mediterranean coastline, and citrusy, alluding to the orange and lemons groves in Menton, another Southern French coastal town on the French Riviera. However, the zestiness is balanced with a base of woody spices, that inject a more masculine tone to the perfume. Think cedar, amber and musk. The perfect cologne for the active alpha male with a strong sense of adventure.

Lancome La Vie Est Belle Intensement
A fragrance for women, the latest iteration from the La Vie Est Belle line features woody and balsamic tones, with notes of bergamot, raspberry, pink pepper, heliotrope, jasmine and orange blossom. The scent is both warm and uplifting, while also evoking sensations of allure and romance. As the name implies, the tone is rather intense, thus perfect for the bold and confident woman, or for those looking for boldness and confidence. Certainly a whiff of this fragrance sends a message of strength, integrity and positivity.
