3 New fragrances that bring us to our happy place

Adventure is in the air, and L’Oreal Designer Fragrances has bottled it with three new scents. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and smell freedom.

POLO EDP W. INGREDIENTS (1)

For men: Dive into a deeper Blue

For Ralph Lauren Polo Blue EDP, world-renowned master perfumer Carlos Benaim contrasted the sparkling freshness of bergamot and cardamom with the seductive intensity of vetiver and ambery woods to create Polo Blue EDP. The result is the aquatic fougere woody scent that is a textured combination of spicy, floral and woody.

Polo Blue EDP 75 ml ($109) and 125 ml ($132) will be available at select retailers in June 2016, available alongside the classic POLO BLUE EDT 75 ml ($99) and 125 ml *$119).

For women: Bottled Joy

Imagine a sunset falling on still waters, as the cool crisp wind sweeps past and an unmistakable joy bubbles up within you.

This July, Giorgio Armani Fragrances bottles that joy in two new scent additions to the best-selling Di Gioia range for women. The power of water captured in Acqua Di Gioia is now joined by the radiant happiness of the sun, SUN Di Gioia, and the exhilarating energy of the air, AIR di Gioia.

SUN Di Gioia is like sunlight taking flight. The amber bottle cradles a modern floriental scent surging with bergamot-freesia, frangipani-ylang-ylang-sambac jasmine, and a warm base composed of iris, vanilla, and benzoin.

This warm, happy sexy scent brings memories of beach walks and flirty sundresses — even if the only beach in sight is the photo on your desktop. Each EDP retailsat $99/50ml and $119/100ml.

airAIR di Gioia is the winds of freedom.Like the joy of being hit by an unexpected waft of sea spray, this woody-citrus scent exudes happiness with mandarin-neroli, peony, and patchouli.

Definitely a lovely scent for a hot day — more sophisticated than your standard cologne, but still light enough for work or even a weekday errand. And when a scent lifts your spirits, and cuts through the heat and stress with just one whiff, then it really doesn’t matter if you’re hopping on a train instead of a yacht.
