- HWP PRESENTS
These three new floral perfumes are not just sweet but also sexy. They are what we imagine a femme fatale in a film noir would wear.
Florabotanica EDP by Balenciaga
From $104 for 30ml, available at Tangs Orchard
Fronted by actress Kristen Stewart, this fragrance is described by its creator, former Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquiere, as “a perfume that is tender and dangerous”. The rose and carnation accords are tempered with mint, vetiver and amber, giving rise to a heady but fresh bouquet that lingers.
Declaration D’Un Soir EDT by Cartier
$97 for 50ml, from Cartier boutiques
While this fragrance is marketed as a men’s cologne, it is concocted with a heart of rose that is flanked by pepper, sandalwood, cumin and nutmeg notes. The floral centre, in our opinion, makes this a wonderful unisex scent.
DSquared2 Potion EDP
From $79 for 30ml, from Sasa stores
The feminine accords of bergamot, violet, rose and lily of the valley are anchored with notes of rhubarb, black amber and white and black musk, making this floral oriental chypre a voluptuous and sexy scent.
