Seldom has the synergy between vogue and perfume been as sturdy as it’s this spring/summer season, because of a brand new pattern in each arenas for the color purple. On the runways, Burberry's basic trenches had been reinvented in lilac, whereas Versace and Dior each confirmed luxurious purple robes. In perfume, purple is a scarcely-used shade, however inexplicably this 12 months, even fragrances with scents that aren't centred round purplish flowers like lilacs and violets are being offered in gleamingly purple bottles, from the rose-based Stella McCartney Sheer, Â£36.50 to Prada's new Infusion de Tuberose, Â£48 and Nina Ricci's new gardenia scent, Le Paradis de Nina, Â£34. Intriguingly, the color works notably properly for contemporary bottles like Shiseido's Zen Purple, Â£56, a clear mix of tuberose, jasmine and lily of the valley, and Versace Versus, Â£41, an invigorating mixture of star apple, orange blossom and centifolia rose. Purple reigns.
