Tory's Summer Fling
Sun, sand and the ocean, what’s not to love about summer? As the season begins to heat up, we socialise more outdoors and spend days by the sea. Summer calls for a scent which is refreshing like a cooling dip in the ocean, and American designer Tory Burch’s new perfume has the answer. Introducing Bel Azur, a fragrance inspired by Tory’s three loves, travel, the sea and the colour blue. Transporting its wearer to the legendary paradise Cote dÁzure in the French Riviera, this captivating scent will have you dreaming of blue waters, white sand, and the shimmering golden sun.
Name: Tory Burch Bel Azur Eau de Parfum
Fragrance notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Lemon, Neroli, Pink Peppercorn, Peony, Patchouli Heart, Vetiver Heart, Cedarwood Oil
Described as: a refreshing fragrance that exudes the golden sun shimmering on a sea of bright blue waters. A burst of bergamot rejuvenates, neroli and peony and earthy vetiver with creamy cedarwood warm the skin. It’s like a tropical summer getaway bottled for wear during the warmer months of the year.
The fragrance is housed in the signature Tory Burch fragrance bottle which features a stunning wave of blue ombre. The bottle is complemented with a blue and gold collar and a crystalline embossed fretwork cap, an element synonymous with Burch’s brand.
Wear it: This refreshing fragrance is perfect for wear in spring and summer. Staying true to Tory’s ‘effortlessly stylish’ mantra, Bel Azure can be worn with a kaftan for a day by the sea or by the pool at your stylish resort. Wear it to work, out for lunch with the girls or for sunset cocktails – it really is a season-all rounder.
Price: Tory Burch Bel Azure 100ml Eau de Parfum $195. Available now from selected David Jones department stores and online.
The verdict: A summer fragrance which is captivating, lasts on the skin and could refresh even the hottest summer day – it’s like a burst of fresh sea air. Bel Azure reminds me a lot of a limited edition CK One fragrance from 2005 which I loved. This scent instantly transports me back to my European summer holiday in 05 where I spent my days on the beach swimming in clear blue waters. Unlike the CK One scent, Bel Azure lasts on the skin which can often be difficult for such a refreshing scent. It’s a winner in my eyes and even I’ll be wearing this fragrance in the coming months – it’s our little secret.
