The gourmand fragrance trend already making a huge global impact will continue East-wards into Asia, bringing with it the European comfort of home cooking and instant sensory pleasure, of warm bread and freshly baked biscuits through fragrance notes such as caramel and vanilla, balanced with the light freshness of citrus sorbets.
This fragrance trend combines two key elements in creating a calming harmony — a soft, sweet, soporific element matched with the depth of warm, earthy notes. Taste sensations such as ice cream dripping in the sun, sweet macaroons, homemade caramels, light palette-cleansing sorbets, or chocolate covered pecans — think exotic vintage holidays and comforting tastes, that drift you away to happy places.
Heavily inspired by the idea of an idyllic summer-long escape by the Mediterranean, the notes conjure vintage scenes of the Amalfi Coast in the 1960s, gorgeous faded ochre-pink palette … and lots of chilled glasses of Aperol Spritz on a bougainvillea-covered balcony as the sun sets in the new soft lavender colours of the season.
This fragrance trend is hopeful and open to adventure, conjuring the warm colours, and heady scents of summer flowers of the Amalfi coast to inspire a sweet and smooth fragrance.
Expect combinations of dusky rose and lavender and notes specific to Southern Italy such as bergamot combining both stimulating and calming notes, making the perfect fragrant holiday.
