What does elevator music smell like? As Byredo works with Off-White to elucidate the answer through the art of perfumery, other prominent fragrance houses are flexing their own chops to create scents for us to get excited over this summer.

For a round-up of the perfumes we love this season, keep on reading.

1
Diptyque Tempo Eau de Parfum

Diptyque’s establishment of its first physical boutique in Singapore went hand-in-hand with the release of its Tempo parfum, a dark, sensual creation by Olivier Pescheux. The spicy, woody unisex perfume is driven by bergamot, pink pepper, sage and patchouli — all notes that are antithetical to the idea of summer, but perfect for those who don’t enjoy the floral or fruity scents that saturate this season.

Price TBA. Available from May 2018 at Diptyque Takshimaya and Escentials boutiques.

Mon Guerlain Florale Eau de Parfum

The creators of the Mon Guerlain Florale perfume were inspired by a bouquet of white flowers, and we can testify to that. Spritz the pale pink liquid on the skin and you’re transported to lush displays of sambac jasmine blooms that effuse a honeyed sweetness.

Available at all Guerlain counters.

Louis Vuitton Le Jour Se Lève Les Parfum

Louis Vuitton’s Le Jour Se Lève is the first inclusion into its Les Parfums line since its launch. Mandarin oranges are the soul of this bright, juicy scent reminiscent of bubbly glasses of mimosa on a sunny Sunday morning. Comforting, youthful and bold, Les Jour Se Lève defines a daytime scent to a T.

Available at all Louis Vuitton boutiques.

4
Chloé Nomade Eau de Parfum

Bold femininity is the message Chloé’s Nomade parfum relays. Mirabelle plum, freesia and oak moss notes in the Nomade mark a departure from Chloé’s typically light and floral perfumes, into headier territory with tons more dimension. It’s such a juicy scent, that it fills the room once sprayed.

Available at Chloé boutiques.

Byredo x Off-White Elevator Music

Byredo’s limited edition Bibliotechque perfume has recently joined the brand’s main collection, which is much cause for excitement for the cult perfumery’s fans. But the announcement of its collaboration with high street label, Off-White, is even more so. Titled Elevator Music, the curious scent is designed to melt into the skin to reveal midnight violet, burnt wood, bamboo and jasmine hints that remain subtle to keep in line with the theme of elevator music — always pleasant in the background.

Price TBA. Available from May 2018 here.
