Trending: Cherry Perfume and Fragrances
Love a fruity perfume but looking for something more seasonal? Enter: cherry perfumes. The perfect fruity scent to transition you right through the seasons. And, what better time to switch out your summer perfume than as the nights draw in and winter approaches?
This fruity fragrance is a classic accompaniment to nutty notes of almond and cosy spices such as vanilla and cinnamon, creating a much richer and luxurious aroma compared to your typically lighter summer scents.
Why is cherry perfume trending?
The essence of fruits has long been an essential ingredient to create a diverse range of scents for both men and women. However, recently one particular fruit has got us all in a chokehold — and that’s cherry.
Beyond the usual freshness fruit can bring to a fragrance, cherries add that extra lush sweetness to any cologne. Combined with notes of spice, musk and wood, cherries can create an intoxicating potion that’s hard to resist. Thanks to industry releases such as Tom Ford’s Lost Cherry, cherry perfume is having its well-earned moment in the spotlight.
Cherry blossom perfume
The name might be deceiving but cherry blossom fragrances are inspired by the cherry blossom flower rather than the fruit. For this reason, cherry blossom perfume is an excellent choice of fragrance for spring, summer or autumn. Reach for the Furla Autentica Eau de Parfum to experience the sweet cherry blossom scent paired with delicious fruity notes of raspberry alongside accents of pear.
Light cherry perfume
Kindly introduce yourself to cherry perfumes with a lighter spring/summer scent. For instance, try the Dolce&Gabbana Q Eau de Parfum Spray. Unlike other fruity fragrances, the cherry base combines sweet, sour and bitter flavours all in one. This scent is paired with cedarwood and Sicilian lemon for a final touch of freshness.
Black cherry perfume
For a cosy perfume, opt for a dark, deep black cherry perfume like the Ghost Orb of Night Eau de Parfum. This passionate fragrance is built upon the original cherry-almond combination. Rich caramel further transforms this potion into a sophisticated scent that pairs with woody sandalwood, floral notes of orange blossom and the musky odours of white musk. Think cherry bakewell tart by the fire on a cold winter night.
Cherry Plum Perfume
Cherry plums are another popular “cherry” note that perfumers introduce to a fruity fragrance. Derived from the prunus cerasifera tree, the earliest blossom to flower in the UK, cherry plums are much more like plums than cherries and have a full-bodied sweet scent. The Chloé Nomade Eau de Parfum combines the described voluptuous sweetness of the cherry plum with freesia and oak moss for a powerwoman scent that is delicate yet strong.
Cherry perfume alternatives
Like the idea of cherry perfumes but not 100% sold? Try a copycat scent that combines fruit essence with notes of bitterness and spice to emulate the cherry craze. Yves Saint Laurent Opium eau de toilette is a fruity yet spicy liquid that mixes to create quite the aromatic scent. Alternatively, the Carolina Herrera 212 VIP Eau de Parfum Spray uses bitter orange paired with musk gardenia and vanilla. The result is an irresistible and intoxicating scent.
If you like the cherry smell but you’re not willing to swap out your favourite, treasured fragrance — candles could be the answer. Take cherry inside with the WoodWick Hourglass Black Cherry Candle. Light for a snug night in with friends and family or a romantic, candlelit dinner date. Either way, it’ll create an inviting ambience.
Cherry bakewell tart… in a candle, you say. That’s exactly what you can expect from the Yankee Candle Pink Cherry and Vanilla Signature Jar Candle. As luxurious and satisfying as the pudding, without the crumbs. Light this one to ace self-care bubble baths.
