If you like floral fragrances

Aerin Rose Fragrances


When Aerin Lauder created this very feminine collection, she had roses on her mind. “I wanted to share the different rose notes I have enjoyed throughout my life in a collection of scents which offer a lighter, luxurious fragrance for every day, every mood, and for any season,” she says. The scent is for the type of woman who “is inspired by the desire to travel and loves feminine floral notes.” The Aerin Rose series lets you take your pick from the Bamboo Rose inspired by the gardens of Japan, Garden Rose from the English countryside, and Linen Rose from the shores of Long Island. Available at Rustan’s Makati

Jo Malone London Honeysuckle and Davana


Inspired by the English countryside, this fresh-smelling fragrance brings you the best of all scents. The top note is the fragrant and fruity davana, it then transitions to a floral rose and honeysuckle scent, before ending with a woody hint of moss. Available at all Jo Malone London branches

Bulgari Rose Goldea

This limited edition offering from Bulgari is lively and youthful. Bottled in a playful pink glass case designed by London-based artist Jacky Tsai, the Bulgari Rose Goldea greets you with notes of fragrant pomegranate and leaves you with a blend of floral rose musk. Available at Rustan’s Makati

Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum


As far as perfume bottles go, it doesn’t get any sexier than Carolina Herrera’s Good Girl eau de parfum, which is housed in a sleek mock stiletto heel. Its contents are as beguiling as its packaging. The scent, however, is only half as true as its name. On one hand, it opens with a sweet combination of tuberose and jasmine sambac to appeal to your inner good girl before the scent shifts to notes of roasted tonka beans and cocoa to indulge in your bad side. Available at Rustan’s Makati

Tom Ford Fucking Fabulous


You won’t need to worry about spraying twice with this provocative Private Blend by Tom Ford. It features a bouquet of clary sage, lavender, bitter almond, vanilla, tonka bean, and leather in a long-lasting formula. It’s packaged in an opulent matte black or black leather bottle that’s as sexy as its name. Available at Rustan’s Makati

If you like powdery fragrances

Tiffany Eau de Parfum Intense

If you thought the Tiffany Eau de Parfum was too mild for your taste, the brand is now introducing a richer and deeper option. Perhaps the most distinct scent would be the noble iris at its heart, just after the a subtle verte de mandarine and pink peppercorn top note and before notes of amber. Available starting January 2019 

If you like sweet, gourmand fragrances 

Jimmy Choo Fever

There’s something bewitching about this blend by Jimmy Choo. It’s a sensual mix of black plum nectar, heliotropes, and a hint of roasted tonka beans. The elixir is housed in a round bottle and topped with a cube cap lined with metallic edges. Available at Rustan’s Makati 

Dolce & Gabbana The Only One


This scent is a richer, more concentrated version of Dolce & Gabbana’s signature scent, The One. The warm-smelling concoction blends violet and bergamot together for that top layer, then at the heart, envelopes you with a mix of coffee and iris. It leaves you with a base of vanilla and patchouli for a strong finish. Available starting the third week of November
