Prestige Beauty Awards 2016: Fragrance

While scent preferences are personal, there’s no denying the allure of these chosen ones.

1. Best Fresh Scent for Men

Bottega Veneta Pour Homme

Containing fir balsam and bergamot, this scent bears equal measures of elegance and sophistication.  “It smells fresh yet sexy,” says Jiang. 

2. Best Sensual Scent for Men

Oud Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris

Containing oud, patchouli and elemi gum,  this scent is a showcase of masculinity. “Kurkdjian has successfully balanced oud with the other ingredients to reveal a polished scent,” says Ab.

3. Best Sensual Scent for Women

Bottega Veneta Knot Eau Florale

This scent opens with notes of roses and peonies, which leads to mandarin and concludes with tonka and cedarwood — reminiscent of the Italian Riviera. “The scent is sexy, elegant and sensuous all at the same time,” says Ab.

4. Best Fresh Scent for Women

Bvlgari Omnia Paraiba

Created to conjure images of Brazil’s beaches and jungles, this scent is delightfully exotic. It contains bitter orange, passion flower and cocoa beans to reveal a chic, fresh scent for women. “I love how this scent is light, yet sophisticated,” says Jiang.
