Today marks the first day of spring and we could not be happier. Spring brings longer days, fresh flowers, lovely pastel colors, airy clothes and new scents.
Burberry Brit will be releasing two new fragrances in a matter of days, and Boca Raton already had a chance to sample the limited edition scents.
The high-end British fashion house has created a male and female fragrance inspired by the season.
The women’s perfume is a light mix of green almond, juicy pear, Japanese green tea and Italian lime [top notes] and sugared almond and peony [heart notes].
The scent is sweet and very fresh. A spritz on your wrist and neck makes you feel refreshed and...well...pretty. We’d love to splash in an entire pool of the perfume on one of our scorching 90 degree afternoons. (While wearing goggles, of course.)
The men’s cologne is also delicious, and impressed both our female and male staff members.
The cologne showcases top notes of fresh lime, cardamon, green mandarin and ginger, on top of vetiver essence, white musk, oriental woods and tonka beans base notes.
(Tonka beans are these shriveled-looking black objects that smell like vanilla, almonds and cloves. Just in case you were wondering.)
Both scents are available at Macy’s and retail for under $70.
Keep an eye out for the ‘Shop’ section in our May/June issue of Boca Raton magazine. We spoke with Space NK’s Nicky Kinnaird on how to sample and find your own signature scent.
