Fragrance Of The Month July 2015

Hello Beautynistas and Suavies! We hope that our U.S. readers enjoyed the Fourth of July celebrations (and have recovered). So, can you believe that it’s July already? The balmy days of Summer 2015 seem to be more like a daze of Summer 2015. Happily, we still have plenty of summertime fun left to enjoy.

Here in the Northeast part of the U.S., we’ve been experiencing some seriously hot and humid weather. And with this in mind, we think about how scent can be amplified in the hot weather. So, Team TME has chosen lighter scents for Fragrance Of The Month July 2015 and … we’ve chosen two scents for the ladies and two scents for the gents! 

L’Occitane Verveine (100 ml - $58) was launched in 2003 and has a Citrus Aromatic theme. The scent opens with a summery snap of lemon that gives way to Rose Geranium, which masterfully blends with Mediterranean Verbena. Drydown leaves an exquisite calm citrus fragrance. L’Occitane created Verveine as a unisex, and we agree that the fragrance can easily be shared, but we’re having way too much fun to let our guy borrow it! Seasons: Warmer Months; Sillage: 3-Moderate; Longevity: 4-Long Lasting; Bottling-5

  • Top: Lemon
  • Mid:  Rose Geranium

Park Avenue South by Bond No 9 (100ml — $295) was just launched in March 2015 and is all woman with a Fruity Floral theme. Opening with a tap of Green Apple that gives way to a beautiful blend of jasmine and delicious peach. Drydown leaves a sumptuous floral blend anchored by musk and dry amber. Park Avenue South is our favorite Bond No 9 scent to date. Seasons: Warmer Months; Sillage: 3-Moderate; Longevity: 4-Long Lasting; Bottling-5 - Nose: Laurent Le Guernec.

L'Occitane Pour Homme - L'Occitan Eau de Toilette (100ml - $58) was launched in 2005 and has a Woody Floral theme, which we can’t seem to get enough of. L'Occitan Pour Homme’s opening is an aromatic blend of citrus and pepper that slides towards an irresistible blend of nutmeg and cinnamon. Drydown leaves a seductive blend of lavender, Tonka bean and musk. Team TME unanimously felt this to be a must-have staple scent for men. Seasons: All; Sillage: 3-Moderate; Longevity: 4-Long Lasting; Bottling-5

Montauk by Bond No 9 (100 ml - $280) was launched in 2013 and has a Floral Woody Aquatic theme. Although Montauk was designed as a unisex, we find it to be more on the masculine end of the spectrum. Opening with a burst of wild bergamot, Montauk takes you on a ride through a blend of fruity, aquatic and woodsy notes. Montauk reminds of summertime spent at the beach (sort where we wish we were right now!) and is a solid summer fragrance for men. Seasons: Warmer Months; Sillage: 3-Moderate; Longevity: 4-Long Lasting; Bottling-5 – Nose: Laurent Le Guernec.
