Shall we begin to play...name that scent? See the slideshow below and let us know how many you guess right!
Citrus fruits (orange and grapefruit), sheer florals (jasmine, orris and irises), vanilla and musky amber. In essence, clean and alluring."I wanted [this scent] to be fresh and clean, but still sexy and sensual – something that feels like you just came out of the shower and are the sexiest person in the world," the maker said in 2002 when the fragrance was unveiled.The first of 18 in its line, this fragrance went on to inspire Halle Berry, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga when it came to their own lines.
Fresh Pineapple, Papaya, Bergamot, mandarin orange, lemon, Jasmine, Violet, Rose, Cardamom, Nutmeg, sandalwood, amber, musk, cedar and oakmoss. It’s hard to tell if it’s for him or for her. Even it’s 1994 starkly androgynous ad campaign, Kate Moss in white tank and black denim mini skirt looking just as unimpressed as the predominantly shirtless 20-somethings surrounding her, kept us confused. But afterall, that’s the point of this fragrance -- to offer a refreshingly new point of view.
Vanilla, caramel, honey and chocolate with splashes of bergamot, blackberries, apricot, and plum, and dashes of patchouli (ok, maybe more than a dash of patchouli) jasmine, orchids, rose, and sandalwood. This fragrance is quite heavenly to say the least.Even Cindy Crawford agrees, it’s been a star scent for her since 1992 when it first debut, as the first fragrance by a highly respected French fashion designer.At the time, this designer was certain something was lacking, and that something was a scent epitomizing the modern flapper that would speak to the liberated spirit of the 1920s."I present my dress collections on the fifth of May, the fifth month of the year and so we will let this sample number five keep the name it has already, it will bring good luck." the designer told her her master perfumer, Ernest Beaux, when he presented her with the missing scent.
Amazon lily, Egyptian tuberose, Turkish rose, Italian orris, patchouli, amber and sandalwood. Talk about extravagance.The fall of 1991 this fragrance became a girl’s new best friend.The namesake of this fragrance may have had a jewelry collection reportedly worth $150 million upon her death in 2011, but that same year her fragrance became the top-selling celebrity fragrance bringing in a dazzling $61.3 million (and that was just for 2011, keep in mind it’s still at the top of the list three years later.)
White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor
A floral rush of jasmine washed with warm vanilla, patchouli and amber.You have to admit, there is something sensual, yet casual, about Charlize Theron slipping into a sheer gold dress, quite similar to what it’s like misting yourself in this fragrance, which was introduced in 2010. When worn sparingly on hot,humid evenings the sultry weather strengthens the rather feminine florals.
J’Adore L’Or by Christian Dior
