Floral by Rocher
The new Rose Absolute Eau de Parfum by Yves Rocher is for women who have a thing for floral fragrances. This one is a deep concoction of Damask roses, cinnamon (as mid-note), tonka bean and patchouli (serving as the base notes). This perfume is available on order on the brand’s official website at a discounted rate.
The 1.7 fl oz spray bottle comes for around Rs 1,100. Also with the floral note is Yves Rocher Tendre Jasmin, part of the collection Secret d’ Essences, a bouquet of a variety of jasmine with a touch of citrus. The perfume is available as 50 ml EDP and in a smaller version of 15 ml EDP, at about Rs 1,700.
Back to the men’s section: Two explosive fragrances from Kenzo are here to stay. Check out Kenzo Tokyo and Kenzo Power. With an electric aromatic woody scent, Tokyo is a wild amalgam of colours, priced at Rs 3,375 for the 100 ml bottle and Rs 2,400 for 50 ml.
