To quote Coco Chanel- “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.” Make a statement this coming season with some new limited edition perfumes that will leave friends and family asking “What are you wearing?” and you coyly replying “something extra special.”
Apart from the exclusivity of being able to wear a scent that very few will be able to get their hands on once the perfume is off shelf, purchasing a limited edition perfume can have numerous other perks.
For the consummate good gift-giver
Perhaps you have a friend who loves your scent but has more of a wild side or a softer nature – limited edition fragrances are perfect for gifting perfumes that smell similar to your scent but that differ by a note or two making the limited edition scent slightly different to the original.
Giorgio Armani’s Sì Rose Signature EDP is just such a perfume.
Only available until the end of April 2017, this scent takes all of the beauty of the original and well-known Sì fragrance and adds a touch of romance with the addition of two roses, the May rose and the sensual Turkish rose. Leave behind a decadent floral trail by wearing this scent as an alternative to the original or gift it to a friend who loves the original on you. Either way, this limited edition is stunningly packaged and smells even better than it looks.

For the woman who loves to add to her fragrance wardrobe
Collecting fragrances can be likened to collecting shoes by the same designer. Have you ever wanted a closet full of Manolos? Louboutins? Some women love the idea of having a vanity table overflowing with one designer’s fragrances.
Purchasing limited edition fragrances from the same House can be the perfect way for a woman to keep the tasteful feel of her scent while actually using different fragrances. Designers tend to keep with a certain theme and feel as a signature when creating fragrances, so purchasing from the same brand can let you play with scents without the worry that you’re straying from the scent you’re known for wearing.
Gucci’s always been a closet favorite and with it’s wide range of scents, it has also become a fragrance favourite for the woman with a discerning nose and an appetite for buying more Gucci because…just look at their bottles!
Gucci’s Bamboo Limited Edition perfume is the original Gucci Bamboo scent with a twist in terms of packaging. On shelf from the 16th of March 2017 and only available while current stock lasts, this limited edition scent boasts a lavender tint to the actual scent to give it a stunning jewel tone that will make it a beautiful addition to one’s vanity even if they own the original. With a top note of bergamot and a heart of Casablanca lily, this scent is an olfactory delight.
