Here Are 16 New Fragrances You Seriously Need To Add To Your Collection

Whether you're looking for a new signature scent for the holidays and new year or a Christmas gift for your best gal pal, here are some of the new fragrance launches we are currently loving.
#1: Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Eau De Parfum, $242
The French maison is now including a fourth variation of its Chance fragrance, which was first launched in 2002. To date, it has already released three iterations known as Eau Fraiche, Eau Tendre and Eau Vive, each of which boasts similar (they are all formulated with jasmine) yet distinctly different scents. What makes the newest Eau de Parfum different? While it is still youthful, fresh and lighthearted, the new fragrance is more intense, radiant and feminine. Exotic jasmine absolute and essence of rose centers the concoction, which is then draped in smooth and creamy white musk notes for a clean and fresh effect. And no, it does not end there. The complex scent closes with a tangy whirl of grapefruit-quince accord. Besides its delicate and profound fragrance, the bottle design is one to note. It now comes with a gold neck and silver die-shaped cap – it’s everything a modern girlie girl could ever ask for. #2: Byredo Unnamed Limited Re-edition Fragrance, $310
Launching on 31 January, this was first launched in 2016 to celebrate the brand’s 10th anniversary and has now made its highly anticipated return. Those with discerning noses may identify with pink pepper, floral notes and a balsam scent but the brand believes that it is up to one’s own imagination to determine the scent. #3: Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina New Year Edition Eau de Parfum, $156
The iconic Signorina Eau de Parfum now comes in a red bottle that is embellished with an opulent velvet Vara bow. The floral-fruity fragrance plays with top notes of sparkling pink pepper and red currants. The sensuality of musk, patchouli and delicious creamy pannacotta blend to form the base. #4: Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Creations Eau de Parfum, $400
Inspired the rich culture and heritage of Florence and Tuscany, the brand’s latest Tuscan Creations feature a total of 11 different EDPs that come in the sleekest and most elegant 100ml bottles. The collection is categorised into three different ranges known as Nature, Arts and Culture and Tradition. Our pick: the light, refreshing and cheerful Punta Ala. #5: Miu Miu Fleur D'Argent Eau de Parfum, $192
Its top note, the tuberose, is a thicker, more matured white flower that opens the fragrance with a sensual and sophisticated scent. A balanced composition of musk accord and the brand’s signature undertone akigalawood provides a buoyant, precocious roundness. #6: Bvlgari Rose Goldea Limited Edition, $232
This sweet, floral fragrance now comes packaged in a limited edition bottle, which was created by London-based artist Jacky Tsai. The pop art floral design reflects the essence of feminity and the curves of the serpent cleverly form the outline of the goddess’ face. #7: Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal by Night Eau de Parfum, $214
An updated version of the brand’s Scandal Eau de Parfum, this is now made with a blend of tuberose, sandalwood and tonka bean for a slightly more mysterious and sensual scent. What else we love: the playful bottle design. #8: Dior Joy Eau de Parfum, $240
A new women’s perfume from the brand after nearly two decades, the Dior Joy EDP is one that is fresh with just the right amount of sweetness to it thanks to a blend of rose and jasmine, which are then mixed in with sandalwood, patchouli and cedarwood. What a joy indeed. #9: Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint Germain Eau de Parfum, S$265

Made with eucalyptus acorns, orange flower and Alaskan cedarwood, this new fragrance is meant to celebrate women (naturally) and the ingredients create an unexpected and unique woody floral that’s dynamic and modern, which is what the brand believes are what women are today.     #12: Lancome La Vie Est Belle Flowers of Happiness, $144

An aquatic oriental scent with floral notes, this limited edition fragrance plays on unusual associations of white flowers, ginger, sugar cane, lemon sorbet, vanilla and musk. Bonus: it’s cool packaging. Main image: Showbit.com
