New Year! New Fragrance!

An alchemic journey through the elements: earth, air and water

There is nothing as alluring as a woman who smells gorgeous and we all love to fall into the arms of a hunk that smells as good as he looks. If you are not sure of the fragrances that will help you seal the deal, in love or at work - have no fear – HF is here to guide to victory!

FOR HER

DOLCE & GABBANA

A fragrance whose scent was inspired by the romantic vibe of Sicily, this new Dolce is a mixture of white flowers.

When to wear it: First date with the one you have had your eye on for a while. Perfect in making a lasting impression.

BALENCIAGA ROSABOTANICA EAU DE PARFUM

Complemented by its gorgeously striking bottle Rosabotanica is the latest addition to the Balenciaga family. Based on a contemporary green rose accord mixed with milky fig leaves the Rosabotanica takes the classic rose and makes it something even more beautiful…and dangerous!

When to wear it: Night out with the girls in your best LBD and your highest heels!

ELIE SAAB L'EAU COUTURE EAU DE TOILETTE.

Created by master Perfumer Francis Kurkdjian as an aromatic partner to the spring/summer 2014 couture collection - this perfume with its orange blossom and vanilla notes is sophisticated and passionate.

When to wear it: A must have on your wedding day or anniversary date. This one is for making memories in.

GUCCI FLORA 1966 EAU DE PARFUM

Inspired by Gucci's iconic floral motif, which we all know was specially designed for the amazing Grace Kelly in 1966, this musky new member of the Gucci Flora family is said to “evoke all of the glamour and history of the brand.”

When to wear it: When implementing the ultimate seduction – an occasion when clothes are optional!

GIANNI VERSACE COUTURE JASMIN EAU DE PARFUM.

Who can resist something so beautifully packaged? Encased in a studded nappa leather case and available only in 100ml bottles, you know the GV Couture Jasmin will smell as good as it looks with heady jasmine notes. While is not cheap, its worth every penny!

When to wear it: Everyday. Everywhere. You will not want to go without this gem!

FOR HIM

ROSE D'ARABIE BY ARMANI PRIVE

We all love a bit of Armani and Rose D’Arabie makes us fall in love with the brand all over again. A mixture of patchouli, Damascus rose, saffron, amber and precious wood mixed with golden dust makes for a magical heady sensation.

Where to wear it: When an occasion arises that is worthy of this fragrance, you will know.

AMBRE NUIT BY CHRISTIAN DIOR

Christian Dior is well known for it’s epic scents and Ambre Nuit is no different with its bright and luminous fresh notes of grapefruit and sunny bergamot as an exciting overture to Turkish rose combined with passionate pink pepper.

Where to wear it: To a meeting where you will be signing a multi-million dollar deal

POUR HOMME BY BOTTEGA VENETA

Calabrian bergamot, pine from Siberia and juniper from the Balkans…these are just some of the notes you will find in the Bottega Veneta. The heart has notes of Jamaican pepper and Canadian fir resins making this a real man’s fragrance.

Where to wear it: To a gentlemen’s club for an evening filled with whiskey and cigars.

TERRE D’HERMÈS

Complex would be the word to describe this offering from Hermès. With scents that range from bright to spicy and musky this is an “alchemic journey through the elements: earth, air and water.”

Where to wear it: Wherever you damn well want to wear it, for this scent will hold its’ own in any setting.

EAU SAVAGE

The first Eau Savage was introduced in 1966 as the first fragrance for men by Dior, and has become a firm classic favourite since. This is one for a man who is so comfortable in who he is, he doesn’t feel the need to prove anything to anyone. A sexy scent for a sexy man.

Where to wear it: First date. First meeting with the in-laws. Interview at a Fortune 500 company. You choose.
