One of the joys of embracing a new season of the year, is enjoying a limited edition scent. Those for the warmer weather ahead tend to be lighter than their Winter sisters, but still seductive enough for a date night or special occasion.
A brand new fragrance that manages to be fun, flirty and generation-spanning, is the new limited edition scent called Guess Seductive Sunkissed, by Guess, the iconic fashion brand. There’s the characteristic, summery fruity first sniff, but the fragrance quickly becomes more substantial, redolent with spice, wood and vanilla. It’s sensual, but “kisses” your skin with the scent, instead of knocking you over with it. That’s why it’s amazing, for warmer weather.
Guess Seductive Sunkissed Eau de Toilette is classified as a Floriental Fruity Musk. “This light-weight addition to the GUESS Seductive fragrance offerings is the perfect compliment to the existing scents in the GUESS Seductive family,” says Paul Marciano, Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Creative Director at Guess? Inc. Steve Mormoris, SVP Global Marketing for Coty Beauty says: “Coty Beauty is thrilled to unveil GUESS Seductive Sunkissed, a playful and youthful reimagining of the classic Guess Seductive fragrance — “Sunkissed perfectly captures the carefree spirit of summer, wrapped up in the retro glamour synonymous with the iconic fashion brand. ”
Guess Seductive Sunkissed was created by Bernard Ellena of Symrise. Bernard is the brother of perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena (one of the main characters in the book: The Perfect Scent) and the son of perfumer Celine Ellena. Guess Seductive Sunkissed starts with sparkling, top notes of pear, raspberry, black currant blossom and pink grapefruit dawn, but it’s the mid notes of jasmine, Brazilian orchid and vanilla mixed with warm, sensual base notes of musk, teide violet and macassar that you really smell. The vanilla mixed with a nice dose of macassar (ebony wood) plus musk, manages to make this a sexy scent that stick around on your skin, without being heavy handed. Depending upon your body chemistry, the scent will seem more woodsy, more vanilla-y or more a musky fruity floral. But no matter which of the notes appear prominent, the light and feminine fragrance will delight.
The presentation is flirtatious, too. The outer carton is white framed with black and peach, festooned in the middle with black polka dots and a red kiss, plus the Guess triangle logo. Inside, the clear glass flacon is a glamorous, retro, flat bottom triangle with a clear “crystal” topper over a hot coral spray diffuser. This bottle would be at home on a 1950’s or 60’s dressing table, but it’s modernized and gussied (or should I say “GUESSied” up with a red lipstick charm from the GUESS accessory collection, dangling from the neck of the bottle. A deep coral tinted juice makes the flacon, sparkle with color. The effect is elegant and yet girly and flirty. Guess Seductive Sunkissed is just what you need to add a sexy “sizzle” in Summer!
