Gone are the days when tracking Harry Styles was a round-the-clock gig – his Watermelon Sugar highs were a good time to be a die-hard fan. Nowadays, catching a glimpse of him on social media is like finding a four-leaf clover – rare, and brings a smile to your face! But with the launch of his eponymous beauty and clothing line, Pleasing, the three-time Grammy winner proves that he is still in tune with his fans – especially when it comes to all their fashion and fragrance needs.
The fragrance line encompasses three delightful scents – ‘Bright, Hot’, ‘Closeness’, and ‘Rivulets’. They’re the scented equivalent of a cheeky wink from across the room, and represent Harry’s dynamic personality and unique artistry. All the scents were created in collaboration with the nose-that-knows, Jérôme Epinette who is the same man who also worked on Victoria Beckham‘s elegant fragrance line.
Rivulets is blue and red all over, a liquid homage to his dazzling costumes. It’s musk, it’s citrus, it’s clean linen – it’s a ticket to an impromptu escapade. Next, Bright, Hot offers wearers the feeling of frolicking since it’s a cocktail of plum, tobacco, and a seaside getaway, sans the sunburn. And last, Closeness is the spicy whisper in a dimly lit room, a cardamom-kissed tribute wrapped up in a cosy cashmere hug. Notes include Australian pink pepper extract, bamboo and salted musk.
“We made a conscious effort to kind of steer away from the overly-complex scents that we’re seeing in the market,” said Chief Executive Officer Shaun Kearney of the Pleasing scents. “Our launch really celebrates this level of simplicity.”
Pleasing finds its way from Harry’s discerning hands to the shelves of high-end boutiques and into the everyday lives of women who demand a dash of luxury, it promises not just a fragrance, but also to empty your wallers. So here are three dupes that you can get for half the price!
Three Pleasing Dupes For Harry’s Scents
A good dupe for Rivulets is the EM5™ Aqua EDP Perfume Spray for Men which sports notes of musk, seawater, sandalwood and cedar. It might not be as long-lasting as Rivulets but comes at a fraction of the price and makes for a wonderful gift!
The scent that accompanies Bright, Hot can also be found in the Exotic Plum Perfume by Bergamot Beauty which also sports strong notes of plum, vanilla and sandalwood.
Last, since Closeness sports notes of Australian pink pepper extract, cardamom and clean sheets – this identical M&S perfume will really give your fragrance wardrobe the panache it needs.
Pleasing isn’t just a nod to his eclectic style – it’s a full-blown embrace, and I hope these dupes help you channel your inner Directioner without making too big of a hole in your pocket!
