Usher in the cooler months with Joy by Dior (HK$660/30ml). The brand has enlisted American actress Jennifer Lawrence to star in the advertising campaign for its first new fragrance in nearly 20 years, which features floral and citrus notes with a base of warming sandalwood. Nothing over the top, this scent is, perhaps, for those who like to play it safe.
For those who need a reminder of summer, Blu Mediterraneo Chinotto di Liguria (HK$480/ 30ml), by Acqua di Parma, is just the thing. Rosemary, cardamom and jasmine add a sun-kissed touch to the Italian brand’s latest release.
A collaboration between French crystal house Baccarat and Armenian master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, the limited-edition Baccarat Rouge 540 is quite the collector’s piece. And its eau de parfum (HK$2,050/70ml) now comes in an even more intense – and expensive – form, the extrait de parfum (HK$3,050/70ml), delivered in a fiery red bottle.
What would the end of time look like? Swedish luxury house Byredo has translated its interpretation into olfactory notes in Eleventh Hour. The eau de parfum (HK$1,200/50ml) is a fig dessert with a kick of rum.
