BAZAAR Fragrance Awards 2017: Best Floriential Scent

Terry de Gunzburg Parti Pris, RM595 (100ml)

Scent of a Woman: A celebration of rich florals, Parti Pris blooms gently with a sweet, creamy note of tuberose, paving the way for a cascade of orange blossoms, Turkish rose, and ylang ylang before settling down to the last arch of the story, where woody notes of smoked vetiver and sandalwood prevail.

Founder’s Favourites: Terry de Gunzburg is a self-professed Prada fan for more than 30 years, to the extent where she travels to Milan just for its nylon raincoats. She cites the Ombre Mercure Extrême, created with the highest concentration and priciest natural ingredients, as her absolute favourite in her line of perfumes.

Sleek Lines: It is love at first sight with the beauty guru’s perfume bottle design. The sharp lines that gradually fade into a faint curve, stamped silver letterings, and the metallic drop top give an impression of insouciance, created for the woman with a certain je ne sais quoi.
