Current fragrance trends seem run the gamut of scent profiles and price points. From a new unisex fragrance from a fashion giant that's making waves for its appeal to "minimalistic millennials" to oud, a pricey fragrance ingredient extracted from moldy evergreen trees, variety is indeed the spice of life. And it's also the theme of this news brief.
News Drill Down:
- TR News reports that Calvin Klein has released a new unisex fragrance, CK2. The fragrance is "one of the biggest product launches in the brand's history," says the media outlet. It also marks the debut of wasabi as an ingredient in a fragrance product.
- According to an article on Cosmetics Design, fruit scents are on the rise in fragrance products. Fig, pineapple, plum and cherry are a few of the scents noted.
- Another unique fragrance ingredient making its way into more expensive blends: oud. Oud is "an oil derived from the wood of certain evergreen trees when they’re infected by mold," says the New York Post. A new cologne from Tom Ford features a high concentration of the extract and retails for $535.
