7 Floral Perfumes that do wonders in Singapore's tropical Weather

Dior La Collection Privee Christian Dior La Colle Noire, from S$390 for 125ml


This beguiling bouquet wins by a nose. Composed as an olfactory ode to the famed French fields of Grasse, this premium perfume boasts a sophisticated symphony of floral and woody notes – think ravishing May rose and sensuous sandalwood simmering in a base of white musk and amber. The multi-layered mosaic of notes in this scent means it’s incredibly versatile too, and should take you from the boardroom to the bar in a pinch. Oh yeah, one final fun fact that should serve as a great cocktail (and cologne) conversation-starter: The fragrance gets its name from one of Christian Dior’s favourite vacation castles in the region.

Dior Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming EDP, from S$115 for 30ml


Place this flirty fragrance on your list of essentials you should stock in your shelf of scents – your beau will be besotted by its beguiling bouquet of provocative peony, ravishing red berries and creamy Centifolia May rose petals plucked from the emerald expanse of Grasse. Try using this to mist your mane; the subtle scent will suffuse your strands without stickiness, so you needn’t worry about leaving embarrassing oil patches in your wake.

Kenzo Jeu d'Amour L'Elixir EDP, from S$141 for 50ml


What’s in the juice? Well, you can expect a calibrated concoction of beguiling blackberry notes segueing into titillating tuberose and a profusion of patchouli and rum – very versatile and deliciously decadent to boot. And because it’s a flanker – essentially perfume-speak for a “remix” on a chart-topping hit – you can atomise yourself with abandon without fear of it being discordant with your lighter Jeu D’Amour day fragrance.

Tom Ford Orchid Soleil EDP, from S$127 for 30ml


This opulent ode to the orchid is sexy and summery, what with its bright bursts of bitter orange and pink pepper drying down to a fabulous floral heart of ravishing red spider lily and tantalizing tuberose swathed in voluptuous vanilla and ornamental orchid.

Boss Hugo Boss The Scent For Her EDP, from S$100 for 30ml


Word of caution: It’s probably best not to spritz this perfume if you’re peckish as the appetising ambrosia calls to mind the most delectable of desserts, what with its mouth-watering melange of plump peach, opulent osmanthus and rich roasted cocoa notes. The exquisitely airy elixir is evanescent enough not to overwhelm the senses of your colleague in the next cubicle.

Gucci Guilty Platinum Edition EDT, from S$125 for 50ml


Maximum marks possible for the posh packaging: The polished platinum bottle is beyond beautiful to behold. As for the juice, expect an elixir that’s fantastically fresh and feminine, with gorgeous geranium, lush lilac and piquant pink pepper plus plush peach and patchouli.

DKNY Be Tempted Eau So Blush, from S$102 for 50ml


This sensuous spin on the beloved Be Delicious family of fragrances is refreshing and ravishing in equal measure, what with its incredibly invigorating citrus concoction of grapefruit and red orange giving way to a jolt of jasmine, plush peony and a whiff of woodiness and musk.
