Walaupun masih kena social distancing, it doesn’t mean that people won’t notice the way you smell as you pass by. Enhance your body scent with these fragrant picks.

We understand how being cooped up at home during the MCO would have made you lose some of your social skills. Hey, it took about three months for us to reach the RMCO stage before we could truly go out freely, so having actual conversations or following the rules of social etiquette may have slipped your mind. Since you’re so used to being at home and wearing pyjamas all day, even not showering at times, it might take you a minute to remember the little details that people notice about you. This includes the way you look and smell. Just remember that your scent lingers as you walk by someone and you want them to do a double-take for the right reasons. Here, we present three new fragrances that will make people pay attention even when you’re social distancing and standing one metre apart.

Simply elegant

Jo Malone London’s new Fig & Lotus Flower cologne from the Lost in Wonder Collection is a light and elegant floral -fruity scent that’s perfect for everyday wear. Just like its name, the scent combines the sweet, creamy facets of fig and luscious fragrant notes of lotus petals. A delightful combo indeed.

Flower power

The Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia (RM420 for 100ml) is given a new lease of life with a limited-edition bottle that pays tribute to the colour lavender. It’s a feminine scent that opens with notes of sparkling red berries, followed by a floral heart comprising white gardenia that’s enhanced by creamy frangipani. Base notes of patchouli and brown sugar round up the entire scent.

A bubbly pick

Made for ‘vibrant girls with a romantic heart’, Burberry’s Her London Dream (RM535 for 100ml) is radiant and sparkling. Top notes of lemon and fresh ginger open the scent, evolving to a romantic rose and peony heart. After a few hours, an earthy scent of musk presents itself giving the fragrance a dreamy feel.
