How to perfume detox for beginners

By Lauren Carbran

January = detoxing. Fact. So tap into the trend with your fragrance – it’s just like switching from fizzy drinks to water but with your scent! Dare to go natural this month? Here’s how to perfume detox the best way…

11Your perfume taste: gourmand

Detox with: water notes

Ready for the ultimate detox? Well, if you’re a fan of gourmand fragrances (ones with edible notes) like YSL Black Opium for her, which contains coffee, or Cartier L’Envol De Cartier with notes of honey, we suggest you go on a scent diet. That’s right: switch the sugar rush for a fresh, watery scent. We’ve got you covered with Davidoff Cool Water Woman for her – a gorge combo of melon and water lily, to smell just like the Bavarian Alps. And Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Eau Fraiche for him is hot on our radar, thanks to the marine accord mixed with grapefruit.

222Your perfume taste: floral

Detox with: natural element accords

Rose addict? Us, too. We could wear Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Rosa Excelsa for her and Hugo Boss Boss Bottled Unlimited for him all day. But if flowers are just not cutting it for you ATM, we suggest detoxing with a natural scent. Yes, you can actually get perfume with natural elements. Take Hollister Wave For Her, which mixes sunlight accord (legit) with starfruit for an exotic combo. Or kit yourself out with the ultimate detox scent, Montblanc Legend Spirit for him, which has notes of fresh air (known as ozonic accord) – not kidding!

33Your perfume taste: oriental

Detox with: milky notes

We’re backing oriental scents till the end – the mix of vanilla and spice is just delish. Our faves? Tom Ford Orchid Soleil for her (vanilla and pink pepper) and Hugo Boss Boss Bottled Intense for him (vanilla and cinnamon). But let us introduce you to the ‘milky’ trend, which is hot for 2017 and great for your perfume detox. We just know you’ll fall in love with the comforting, light Michael Kors Wonderlust for her, which mixes almond milk with mandarin, while, if you have a sweeter tooth, choose Thierry Mugler A*Men for him, which includes chocolate and musk. Ready, set, detox!
