Nasomatto Narcotic V – one of Jess’ all time favourite scents at Lore! Nasomatto’s Narcotic V is tuberose heavy with elements of brightness making this perfume uber feminine, floral and delicious on the skin! This is the scent to wear when you want to leave a sexy trail…
NOTES: Nasomatto doesn’t release their fragrance notes, however we definitely get Tuberose and Gardenia in Narcotic V.
Gallivant London – this collection takes us on an incredible olfactive adventure around the world! We love that London takes us to a brisk, wet spring morning. Wandering through the flower markets with the scent of roses wafting, the vintage markets and the soft smell of well-loved leather jackets, then a cheeky late morning gin and tonic, because…why not?
NOTES: Roses, Leather, Cucumber, Violet, Sandalwood, Patchouli and Cedarwood.
One Seed Freedom – we just love One Seed’s beautiful collection of all-natural fragrances made in South Australia. Freedom from One Seed conjures images of a picturesque orchard – freshly cut grass, citrus fruit on the trees and flowers blooming. A fragrance all about the peace felt when in nature – we’ll get on board for that!
NOTES: Pink Grapefruit, Grass, Rosewood, Magnolia, Pink Peppercorn and Australian Sandalwood.
Eight and Bob Champs de Provence – possibly the most perfect spring scent that we have ever smelt! Spending every spring with his friends Alessandro and Chiara in Provence, Albert created Champs de Provence after the couple had to relocate for work. Always yearning for their favourite place, Albert recreated the smell of spring time – the lush green countryside, the fruits and flowers in full bloom, the air is crisp and clean. An absolute delight!
NOTES: Bergamot, Orange, Pear, Jasmine, Rose, Orange Blossom, Moss and Mate.
Fragonard Bigarade Jasmin – the perfect ‘happy’ perfume! So bright and sparkling, this scent is inspired by a Mexican garden. When we smell this perfume we think – bright colour, full of life and excited festivities. Bigarade Jasmin is a part of Fragonard’s iconic Garden Collection that also has matching soaps (and we’ve gotta say, these soaps are divine!).
NOTES: Bitter Orange, Bergamot, Grapefruit, Jasmine, Oak Moss, Cypress and Cedarwood.
Heretic Flower Porn – the ultimate fragrance trio! We are kind of obsessed with Heretic’s all natural perfume collection and this set features three of their explicit florals that are a must try! Dirty Jasmine – the aphrodisiac, Dirty Rose – the seduction and Florgasm – the climax. Layer or wear individually, you’ll be guaranteed to get attention!
Dirty Jasmine is a fresh spring breeze, Dirty Rose is a playful, sexy rose and Florgasm is a white, carnal, floral scent.
Dirty Jasmine – Jasmine, Cucumber, Pepper, Jasmine (Sambac and Grandiflorum), Orange Flower, Ylang Ylang, Tuberose, Narcissus, Mate Tea and Hay.
Dirty Rose – Lemon, Pepper, Bergamot, Clove, Rose, Black Current and Apricot.
Florgasm – Coriander, Bitter Orange, Pink Pepper, Pimento Berry, Jasmine, Linden Blossom, Orange Blossom, Ylang Ylang, Tuberose and Hibiscus Seed.
Andrea Maack Dark – not your typical Rose fragrance – this scent is a juicy and mysterious rose. While creating light and dark through her use of notes, Andrea Maack pulls you towards soft, comforting notes, then a sharp metallic blood rose, then bright and sparkling fruits. A gorgeous clash of notes to create an animalic sense.
NOTES: Apple, Pink Pepper, Mandarin, Rose, Petitgrain, Orange Flower, Cedarwood, Ciste Absolute and Musk.
Heretic Scandalwood – Heretic collaborated with Dita Von Teese to create the masterpiece (and best seller) Scandalwood. A slight deviation, as Heretic prides themselves on their all natural materials, Dita Von Teese managed to lure Heretic into using the sexy Musk note which is the only synthetic note in their entire collection. And it really has paid off – we just love Scandalwood (one of Jade’s absolute favourites!), its sexy and feminine, its soft with a touch of powdery-ness yet a bold Sandalwood, its a vintage Rose but also powerfully modern and alluring. Such a masterpiece! ❤️
NOTES: Coriander, Rose, Atlas Cedar, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Orris Butter, Labdanum, Myrrh and White Musk.
Goldfield & Banks Velvet Splendour – the wonderful Goldfield and Banks created Velvet Splendour as an ode to road tripping through the Flinders Ranges in South Australia in the crisp spring air – how could it not make our top 10 list?! The smell of the country side and a giant bouquet of yellow, golden flowers. Velvet Splendour is one of the most intoxicating and delightful Mimosa (Wattle) scents we’ve ever tried! A truly unique fragrance and a beautiful ode to Australia.
NOTES: Mandarin, Hedione, Australian Mimosa, Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Australian Sandalwood, Patchouli, Vetiver, Leather, Tonka Bean, Oppopanox and Heliotropine.
Map of the Heart v.1 Clear Heart – Heart of Freedom – another gorgeous Australian perfume line that is quite new to Lore. We just love the whole collection, however V.1 – The Heart of Freedom really is perfect as it warms up. We love the way this brand evokes emotion in their perfume collection. V1 – The Heart of Freedom is an homage to the Australian summer (we can’t help it if we’re already dreaming of summer days can we?😉). Think long days spent by the beach, the feeling of having absolutely nothing to do but to enjoy the glorious day! Crisp, fresh and uplifting, this scent is the gorgeous hint of the warmer days to come.
NOTES: Citrus, Green Leaves, Blackcurrant, Watery Notes, Neroli, Orris, Peony, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Incense and Musk.
