Summertime calls for a holiday and that is why we’re already planning our next trip. Sunblock and lotions are all essential part of this season’s skincare but remember that fragrance is significant to keep you feeling fresh during the warm weather. While the cold months lean towards heavy scents, you need a light and refreshing scent this summer just for those special beach days!
One of our firm favorites when it comes to fragrances, what makes the new eau de parfum within the Happy Chopard Collection special? The Happy Chopard Bigaradia is drenched with the infinite energy of the bitter orange tree that complements the vibrant and vivifying notes of Lemon Dulci and the exuberant scent of Felicia Roses, the first two eaux de parfum of the trilogy.
The incredible collection is the creative vision of Caroline Scheufele, the artistic director of Chopard. Her emphasis on ‘do good, feel good’ philosophy paired with the glamorous ‘happy-chic’ lifestyle, this scent expresses an embodiment of feminine grace and power. The natural combination of ingredients exudes happiness as with every spritz of this stylish scent. Be sure to add this to your beauty cart!
