Wine is typically paired with specific food to enhance the taste of the dish. Now, hear this: you can pair the fragrance you wear based on where your dinner date is happening to enhance the atmosphere of the event.
Don’t worry if you’re no fragrance connoisseur, here are our recommendations:
Dinner location: Classic Italian restaurant
While we can’t be transported to Italy immediately for an authentic Italian dinner, it doesn’t mean we can’t get ourselves in the spirit of Italy with the help of Dolce&Gabbana Sicily. It’s been said that Italy without Sicily does not leave an impression on your soul, and this fragrance encapsulate this beautiful temperament. Bringing to life the attractive elegance of the island of Sicily, this fragrance combines floral and oriental accords that will combine seamlessly with the atmosphere of your dinner date.
Dinner location: Fine-dining restaurant
The exquisite cuisine may be the star on the table, but guess who should be the star at the table? You, of course. Embrace the timeless glamour of Hollywood with the Gucci Premiere, a fragrance that’s inspired by the gowns at the Gucci Premiere couture collection showcased at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. Luxurious, opulent and graceful, this fragrance is formulated with the exuberance of bergamot and orange blossom, and also features the indulgent base of leather and wood.
Dinner location: Cocktail bar
The bustling venue needs an equally enthusiastic woman to work the room. Draw attention to your energetic personality and charming charisma with the Boss Orange for Women. Featuring notes of sweet apple, white flowers and orange blossom, this, together with your ability to engage anyone in intelligent conversation will make you the belle of the ball.
Dinner location: Sushi restaurant
Sushi is seen as an art in Japanese cuisine and is recommended to be consumed along with food and drinks that are delicate. A spritz of the subtle Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Cherry Blossom is the perfect companion to this meal. Refreshing and gentle, the fragrance is an ode to spring, and particularly to the cherry blossom, a prized flower in Japan. This powdery scent features notes of bergamot and cherry blossom petals, green tea and peach – all of them combined harmoniously to form a pretty ensemble.
Dinner location: Alfresco garden restaurant
This romantic candlelit dinner amidst the flora and fauna can be enhanced with a floral fragrance like Penhaligon’s Bluebell. Launched in 1985, this fragrance features citrusy top notes and floral heart notes like hyacinth, rose and jasmine. Spray this on the back of your ear, on your wrists and behind your knees – and make him wonder why flowers smell especially alluring when you’re around.
