Can You Name 5 Fragrances Containing Rum?

Bacardi RumAt this time of year it seems like we need little excuse to put rum into everything from Christmas cake to custard. So to keep in the ‘spirit’ of things (did you get that?) here’s a list of 5 fragrances that contain rum.

Lacoste Pour Homme
Elegant, fresh and a little bit dark, Lacote Pour Homme is a fragrance based around the mysterious scent of Dark Rum. A winning dash of fruitiness is added to the mix with Apple and Plum.

SJP NYC for Her
A stylish scent mixed like a cocktail. Addictive, fruity and colourful notes of Wild Strawberries, Bergamot Rose Damascena and Vanillary Rum celebrate the never-ending vivacity of the Big Apple.

Carolina Herrera 212 VIP for Her
A heady blend of unique notes to celebrate the talent of New York’s young creatives. Includes Rum, Passion Fruit, Gardenia and Vanilla to evoke their attitude, their originality and their style.

DKNY Red Delicious for Men
A tantalising and exotic mix of the fruitiest of aromas. Deep, mesmerising and intoxicating, DKNY Red Delicious blends notes of Cognac, Saffron, Apple Liqueur and Rum for a lasting impression.

Hugo Man
A fresher interpretation of Rum with crisp Lavender, Green Apple, Mint and Pine Tree. A dose of mystery for a scent that is otherwise as clear as day. Undeniably masculine and clean.

SJP Follows DKNY with NYC

Sarah Jessica ParkerHandbags at dawn – it looks like we may have an acronym catfight on our hands. There I was thinking that Donna Karan had New York’s fragrance scene wrapped up with her DKNY brand and along comes Carrie Bradshaw sorry, Sarah Jessica Parker, with her own New York inspired perfume called SJP NYC.

Word is that SJP NYC was a working title for the new fragrance whilst in the lab but it seems to have stuck. The lucrative tie-in with next year’s Sex and The City (SATC) movie sequel most probably had a lot to do with that. Coty Prestige, who were responsible for Sarah’s previous fragrances Lovely and Covet missed a trick in 2008 as they failed to capitalise on the release of SATC which raked in around half a billion dollars worldwide. They don’t intend to make that mistake again. Sarah’s latest will make an initial appearance in Macy’s stores in February but worldwide distribution is expected to start in May to coincide with the movie’s release.

SJP NYC will be released as an eau de toilette and this fruity floral will have top notes of mandarin, white osmanthus and strawberry, a heart of gardenia, honeysuckle, mimosa and red rose damascenia and a base of sandalwood, vanilla, rum and musk.
