Not only perfumes, but also many other body care products are characterized by vital, lively and sparkling notes this year. After the aphrodisiac, resinous oud note, which was previously mainly reserved for fine perfumes, had made its way from the posh outsider role to the wearable seductive fragrance, dynamic, fresh fragrances were allowed to shine again in 2016. Full of joie de vivre and sparkling lightness, citrus scents in particular shine in their full, sunny splendor in 2016. Here, however, not only chords of ripe Italian lemons and tangy-sweet orange notes are represented. The exotic, fresh scent of prickly pear, Nashi pear and summery sorbet notes are also finding their way into the perfume world.
