Welcome to the “TOP 5: Sweet Sixteen Perfume.”

For this week, we are covering a selection of 5 perfumes which brings out that young girl in you at a cost.

A fragrance that captures the feminine and young Italien style in a cascade of floriental and fruity with an unexpected gourmand touch. The joyful yet romantic lilac color reveals the iconic and chic shape of Signorina. The Vara bow shows a delicate combination of pink and lilac which infuses a sense of freshness.

Top Note: Grapefruit & Litchi
Heart Note: Rose oil & Steam Rice
Base Note: Milk Mousse & Cashmeran

Price: $$$

[ The most joyful of the list, Signorina reveals the young you. ]

A sparkling floral, Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is a complex fragrance fashioned like a dress embroidered with a thousand flowers. This new floral bouquet pays homage to Christian Dior’s legendary passion for flowers. It glorifies mandarin and peony on downy notes of white musk. The peony is at the heart of this new floral signature. Its unique trail combines Damascena rose essence with fruity notes to recreate the outstanding scent of this flower, elusive in its natural state.

With Pivoine Suzhou, Giorgio Armani has reinterpreted the Eau de Toilette, combining elegance and freshness with soft, lingering sensuality. It is the first Armani Privé fragrance to be inspired by the legendary gardens of Asia. Pivoine Suzhou Eau de Toilette is also a celebration of China’s most beloved flower – the peony. The symbol of the ancient Chinese empire, the peony represents happiness, grace and prosperity. Pivoine Suzhou is an ensemble of great beauty, balancing art and nature. For Giorgio Armani, creating a couture or fragrance collection requires this same harmony of elements.

Top Note: Raspberry, Pink Pepper & Mandarin Orange
Heart Note: Rose of May, Rose & Peony
Base Note: Patchuli, Musk & Amber

Price: $$$$

Rose Alexandrie showcases the Rose of May, in the spirit of the gardens of Alexandria. This fragranced water was inspired by the subtle intermingling of fountain waters and the scent of roses from the Alexandrian garden, fresh, moist; then warmed by the sun’s rays.  Centifolia rose is part of a closed circle of the finest essences used in perfumery.  Prized for its highly complex alchemy, it lends itself to an infinite number of compositions.  Also known as the Rose of May, it is characterized by a heady, intense scent, both soft and potent. An extraction method is used to obtain the precious solution called “rose absolute”.

Key Note:Centifolia Rose of France

Price: $$$$

[ Sweet rose and soft floral combination with a pinch of fruity scent makes the whole fragrance fresh. ]

This composition interweaves flowers, leaves and fruits, bringing together all the fragrant aspects of roses from all over the world. Stunning and delicious, it evokes the sweet scent of wild roses. The rose, an eternal source of inspiration, is what has always most fascinated Caron. This is the latest Fountain creation by Richard Fraysse, a delicate soliflore which pays tribute to the queen of flowers.

Top Note: lichee, jasmine absolute,
Heart Note: lily of the valley, rose bush leaves
Base Note: blended rose petals, lotus flower absolute

Price: $$$$

[ Caron knows how to make the most of a very common ingredient; the rose. This EDP will give you a long lasting elegant yet floriental softness scent. ]
