COSMO fave, Thabiso Makhubela and Edgars Beauty know your perfect scent, just in time for World Fragrance Day

How will you choose just one perfume? 😍

We might only be three months into 2020, but there have already been some pretty spectacular perfume launches. One of our fave COSMO guys, Thabiso Makhubela and Edgars Beauty have joined forces to celebrate World Fragrance Day on 21 March 2020 and to help you find your new signature scent.  

Edgars Beauty is known for being the destination of all things wonderful. Whether you’re searching for exclusive brands or the latest in the beauty world, Edgars is the first brand that comes to mind.

A fragrance is something personal, a piece of iconography that conveys your personality without saying a word. Watch as Thabiso Makhubela explores some of the exclusive and newly launched fragrances at Edgars and Edgars Beauty and the celebs they remind him of.

Yves Saint Laurent Libre EDP

This scent was designed to make a statement and is aimed at those who live by their own set of rules. Rebels, where you at?

Thabiso’s take: This screams money and is for the sophisticated lady, and gives off a bold, confident vibe. As for notes, he claims to get whiffs of cinnamon. Is he right?

NOTES: Okay, so there might not be cinnamon in the mix, but there are vanilla and musk notes combined with jasmine, lavender and orange blossom. Close enough or nah?

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb EDP

This scent hit the beauty scene (and our cosmetic shelves) 15 years ago and it has been our ride-or-die BFF ever since. Time flies when you’re smelling, well, fly!

Thabiso’s take: This gives off a fruity aroma (interesting observation, Thabs, especially when the name practically screams ‘floral’!)

NOTES: This bomb fragrance (see what we did there?) contains mostly floral notes, such as jasmine, rose and orange flower, with some base notes of musk to amp up the seduction factor.

Calvin Klein CK EVERYONE EDT

Looking for a burst of freshness that you can share with bae? This fresh-as-f*ck unisex scent is sure to tick all the boxes. Also, this amazing scent is exclusive to Edgars for three months!

Thabiso’s take: It’s time to get those floral dresses out because this fragrance is literally summer in a bottle. If the weekend had a scent, it would be this.

NOTES: This genderless scent can be worn from day to night and contains notes of orange oil, ginger and cedar, and has an aquatic quality to it. This one’s for you, beach bums!

Gucci Guilty Love Edition Pour Femme EDP

The perf perfume for balmy summer days, this scent has sweet and citrus notes, which come together to create a scent that is as fresh as it is fun.

Thabiso’s take: The Love edition of this fragrance line is a new release, and is fruity, clean and fresh. I like it!

NOTES: He was right on the nail with this one, which contains top notes of raspberry, grapefruit and bergamot, with musk, amber and patchouli at the base.

Tom Ford Rose Prick EDP

As if the boujee Millennial-pink bottle doesn’t make this fragrance worthy of a space in your perfume collection, the intoxicating scent will. This must-have scent is exclusive to Edgars online, how cool?

Thabiso’s take: I have often found myself using Tom Ford fragrances that were created with the ladies in mind. This one smells like summer, and I think Rihanna embodies this scent.

NOTES:: As the name would suggest, roses come out strongly in this perfume, but it also has some sexy notes of tonka bean and pepper to make the mix a spicy one.

Valentino Donna Born In Roma EDP

Don’t let the edgy packaging fool you – this fragrance oozes modern femininity and contains a blend of fresh and sultry notes. Did you know? Valentino fragrances are exclusive to Edgars!

Thabiso’s take: You’re going to want to use this one sparingly, and you must choose the occasion wisely. This stuff will definitely set the mood!

NOTES: This scent has fruity top notes of blackcurrant and bergamot, jasmine in the middle and vanilla and wood at the base, which come together to create a well-balanced fragrance.

Lancôme Idôle EDP

This scent was created with Millennial and Gen Z women in mind. It smells amazing, and the bottle is reminiscent of a smartphone. Modern, much?!

Thabiso’s take: This fragrance will knock people off their feet – it’s *that* good! A rush of energy rushes through one’s body when you smell this, and I think Kylie Jenner embodies this scent.

NOTES: Roses make up the main notes of this modern scent, which is balanced with notes of pear, bergamot, white musk and vanilla.
