Meet your new signature scent…
By Rebecca Gillam
Perfumes have always been one of those inconveniently expensive things in life. In fact it’s almost impossible not to blow your whole month’s budget on just one bottle. That was until the clever people at Primark heard your calls for one that smells dreamy, looks mega chic, and will create a shelfie of dreams, oh and then made six… Meet the Private Collection!
For only €4, you can now snap up one of our fancy new unisex fragrances — Rose Oud, Pomegranate & Black Tea, Jasmine & Honey, Vanilla Absolute, Amber Noir and Mandarin & Basil. Though you can buy a 100ml bottle for €10, the 20ml versions are perfect for on-the-go spritzing, as well as taking on holidays. Battling with those teeny plastic liquid bags can be zero fun, so make the whole thing less stressful with handy minis.
When you find your favourite scent, you can kit out your home with the delicately fragranced hand wash (€5), shea butter and vitamin E-enriched hand cream (€3) and fragrance oil to match. Plus, the hand cream comes in a handbag-sized 50ml, too!
The only question you’ve got to ask yourself is: which scent? Let us give you the lowdown…
The Rose Oud is perfectly toned, with the petals and spices blending with the fruity top notes of lemon, mandarin and raspberry for a radiant and opulent infusion.
Known at Primark HQ as the scent ‘equivalent of a daring red dress’, Pomegranate & Black Tea is your new spicy and sophisticated date night perfume. Think flamenco emoji sass!
As you can imagine, Jasmine & Honey has a holiday vibe about it. The citrus top notes lighten up the heady sandalwood, cedarwood and musks, making it calming and romantic.
Vanilla Absolute is a real party perfume. All feathers and champagne sparkles, it’s unashamedly fruity and floral with ambery, woody base notes.
The badass of the bunch, Amber Noir comes in a sleek black bottle. Inspired by ‘the Moroccan sands at dusk’, it’s an oriental mix of jasmine, suede and tonka bean with bursts of spicy amber.
Mandarin & Basil is an instant classic. It’s refreshing and delicious, like a breeze in a summer sky, with the basil and pine leaves uniting with the mandarin and bergamot
Or, of course, you could get the lot! Just be prepped for your pals to ask about your new scent… And copy you, obvs.
