New Escentual Post: The Scents of Sunshine

The Scents of Sunshine - An Exploration of Solar Fragrances

The Scents of Sunshine – An Exploration of Solar Fragrances

So things were a little bit quiet on The Candy Perfume Boy front last week thanks to a heavy week at work. That said, I did still have time to give focus to my weekly Escentual column, and seeing as we were being treated to a delightful wave of good weather (which now seems to have disappeared), I took inspiration from the great big ball of fire in the sky that is sometimes referred to as ‘the sun’.

My post last week was a little olfactory tour of solar fragrances – that’s perfumes inspired by the light of the sun to you and me. Ranging from the bright brilliance of daylight to the fiery glow of sunset, this piece focused on some old sunny favourites (see Alien) as well as a few reviews of new things too. The stand out of ‘the new’ was definitely Guerlain’s Terracotta Le Parfum – a suitably delicious tropical floral made in the truly gourmand Guerlain style. To check out my ode to solar fragrances, please click here. Don’t forget to let me know what your favourite sun-kissed scents are, whilst you’re there!

  1. Lovely perfumes and bang on review. I’ve just bought Teracotta – it’s also great value for money for the 100ml bottle and is not too heavy not too light, not too sickly, just perfect for summer. And it was 36 degrees here in France the other day (thank god the temps have gone down this week) and it worked well with those temps. I think it’s very good but you would need to like ylang ylang I think as this facet is quite strong. I read somewhere that Guerlain was going to make this a permanent fixture (can’t remember where) but here’s hoping.
