Our pick of the newest fragrances will whisk you away to the joy of summer.



Sisley Les Eaux Rêvées



Sisley’s new fragrance collections comprise six scents, each, in turn, fresh, floral, warm and spiced. These olfactory odes to nature express this imaginary place where inspirations collide, join together and become one – the inspirations of different generations of the d’Ornano family, the creators of Sisley. New to this collection, Eau Rêvée d’Hubert evokes the Geranium that Isabelle d’Ornano has pruned a thousand times. It is named in memory of Hubert d’Ornano, Sisley’s founder. Isabelle d’Ornano wanted this olfactory creation to open with the robust and original scent that arises when you rub the velvety leaves of her famous Pelargonium Tomentosum.


Dior La Collection Privée Dioriviera



Created by Francis Kurkdjian, Perfume Creation Director – Parfums Christian Dior, the new Dioriviera fragrance captures the spirit of the South of France’s home of perfume, Grasse, during the rose harvest. Surrounding Dior’s Château de la Colle Noire, the scent of roses during the harvest period is irresistible, addictive, defined and delicate. “The inspiration for the Dioriviera fragrance came to me suddenly in Provence, amid a field below the La Colle Noire estate. The southern sun was shining, the May roses were in bloom, and a warm breeze blew through the leaves of a majestic fig tree, my sole companion.” Said Francis Kurkdjian. “This magical moment was seared into my memory, and in that very instant, the desire to create a perfume arose.” He added.


Acqua Di Parma Arancia La Spugnatura Limited Edition



Acqua Di Parma celebrates a rare and precious citrus essence with its new limited edition fragrance.

The original LOEWE Paula’s Ibiza EDT is an irreverent composition, with beachy notes of mandarin, driftwood, frangipane, sand lily and patchouli oil while the LOEWE Paula’s Ibiza Eclectic EDT is hedonistic and wild with notes of orange flower absolute, jasmine sambac, incense, sandalwood, and musk.

Q by Dolce&Gabbana was crafted by perfumer Daphne Bugey in Italy using exclusively the highest quality raw materials selected according to the fine fragrance criteria.
