No beauty product sparks greater joy than fragrance. It’s a product you wear just because; it’s frivolous and fun, as opposed to functional. Scent is also highly personal – we choose one because it speaks to us on an emotional level. That’s why integrating something new into your olfactive wardrobe from time to time is special; it might align with a new job, chapter, trip, relationship or season. You might simply be looking to replace an old favourite. Either way, few beauty shopping endeavours are as luxurious as purchasing a new perfume.
So to help you on the journey, we’re rounding up six new season launches that are as beautiful as they are unique. From classics reimagined as body mist, to designer juice inspired by the South of France, there’s something for every taste level in the below.

Issey Miyake A Drop d’issey, $184. shop now
This light, sunny floral is a departure from the usual citrus-laced Issey Miyake olfactive family, but we love it all the same. The most prominent floral note is lilac, but it’s tempered with damask rose, almond milk and orange blossom. The circular glass vessel (made from a percentage of recycled glass) has a dew drop-like appearance, and doubles as a magnifying lens when held up to the light.
Chanel COCO MADEMOISELLE L’Eau, $143. shop now
If you find traditional eau de parfums or even toilettes can feel heavy or cloying, Chanel has just released a water-based iteration of its iconic Coco Mademoiselle fragrance. It still has the same sensual, woody undertones, but overall feels lighter and brighter. Try misting it through hair or across the body on warms days.
maison margiela matcha meditation, $185. shop now
Margiela scents are more of an experience than a collection of “notes”. Matcha Meditation specifically is a sweet, unique spin on traditional matcha green tea. Creamy and bright, a combination of bergamot, orange blossom, benzoin, green tea accord and white chocolate come together to create a truly unique scent that’s sure to get you noticed.
dolce & gabbana Light blue forever, $157. shop now
We can’t have a long summertime sojourn in Capri, but we can have a spritz of Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Forever. A fresh take on the iconic citrus juice, Light Blue Forever comes in a sparkling blue glass bottle, and smells like the thick, salty, citrusy air of the Mediterranean.
Christian Dior Eden Roc, $360. SHOP NOW
Another trip around the globe in olfactive form, Eden Roc from Christian Dior is an homage to the famed Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc in Antibe, France. Crafted by Dior Perfumer François Demachy, this fragrance is salty, floral and mineral all at once; think sea water, white flowers, warmed skin and shady pines.
