2017 has been the year of perfumes. Fashion designers launched new scents, old ones have been re-discovered and beauty companies experimented with different kinds of smells to create unusual, extraordinary but magnificent new fragrances.
What changed? Floral aromas have become lighter, which makes them a fresh and romantic daytime scent, such as Gucci’s Bloom. Jo Malone went to a similar direction as with their candles: the earthy compositions include oak, hazelnut, sandalwood or bergamot. Marc Jacobs’ Decadence, which already launched in 2015, became a favorite smell for the evening, highly valued for its slight sweetness, not overwhelming, but effective enough leave a deep impression.
But also beloved classics from the past have been called back to the mind. Weekend by Burberry faded into obscurity for many, but without any reason! Chance from Chanel has always been a safe choice and still is! Different from the other Chanel scents, it has a fresh and ‘vivid’ note; therefore it builds the counterpart to No 5, a heavier and more mature smell.
After this little introduction of types, reinventions, and directions in the business of perfumes, find all the best and most favored scents of 2017!
