Finding Your Signature Fragrance for Spring
February 25, 2016
With the copious amount of fragrances on the market, one may feel daunted by the process of finding a “signature scent.” Instead of simply relying on base note descriptions, why not let your taste in lip shade guide you to a befitting fragrance? To help you navigate the vast perfume landscape, here are four quintessential spring options that pragmatically pair with some favorite lip colors:
(1) Shimmering Pink Lip Gloss: Do you prefer a slick of glimmering baby pink–like La Prairie Lip Color Effects in Maribou–for a low-maintenance but polished look? If so, let your relaxed-yet-chic personality embrace the effortless energy of Byredo Mojave Parfums Ghost. This oriental-floral fragrance features notes of ambrette, violet, sandalwood, and ambergris for a sweet, creamy, and clean effect that lingers for hours.
(2) Peachy Nude Lipstick: Are you perennially drawn to a warm nude lip–like Le Métier de Beauté Hydra-Crème Lipstick in Sahara–for a timeless take on beauty? If so, then you will likely adore the Floral Green sillage of Norell New York. Initially launched in the 1960s and updated in 2015, this elegant fragrance radiates notes of bergamot, pear, and gardenia with a balance of sandalwood and musk. Consider this a next-level classic.
(3) Vibrant Orchid Cream Lip Color: Do pops of violet-tinged pink–like Tom Ford Lip Color in Lilac Nymph–catch your eye and dress your lips? If so, try the modern and sophisticated Balenciaga Florabotanica. Brimming with notes including mint, vetiver and caladium leaves, this luminous juice also contains striking elements of hybrid rose for a cutting-edge allure.
(4) Soft Red Liquid Lip Color: When muted crimson lips–like those created with Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro #500–are your status quo, gravitate toward the rich and sensual Bulgari Eau Parfumée au thé rouge. This intoxicating fragrance is characterized by the warm, refined presence of two red-tea extracts (rooiboos and Yunnan) for a robust and arousing impact that aligns beautifully with a confidently carmine pout.
