New fragrances for the monsoon season

Schenelle Dsouza
The smell of wet mud during the rainy season might be one of the most enticing aromas one can smell; however, nobody actually enjoys smelling like the weather. One tends to sweat more in the humidity, making things worse. Fresh floral fragrances with woody notes are the best for the rainy season since they complement the aromas of the weather.
Whether you’re staying indoors or taking a walk in the rain, a good fragrance has the ability to lift up your mood. Here’s a look at some of the new fragrances that are a perfect buy for the season.

In true Chanel style, the perfume closes in with a twist of spice with spicy pink pepper and woody patchouli leaving behind an earthy but elegant fragrance.

Marc Jacobs’ new EDT Perfect is a comforting floral scent that celebrates self-love and originality. The perfume was inspired by Marc Jacobs’ mantra: “I am perfect as I am,” which is symbolized by a tattoo of the word “perfect” on his wrist.  Unconventional yet harmonious, Perfect is a clash of fresh floral notes like rhubarb and daffodil, finished with comforting notes of almond milk, and a soft dry down of cedarwood and cashmeran. The bottle itself is a fun mix of elegance and modernity. The striking cap is crowned with a selection of eclectic, mismatched charms selected by Marc Jacobs himself, with his initials MJ near the base of the cap.
