As customisation is to clothes, so a sophisticated signature scent is to women. Create a unique impression with a perfume that’s perfect for you
Amp up your glamour factor
You’ve slipped on your favourite little black dress and taken the plunge with a show-stopping red lipstick – all that’s missing from this picture of date-night perfection? A spellbinding wonder scent to make you feel as glamorous as you look.
Cue our latest fragrant love affair – L’Occitane Terre de Lumiere, a flirtatious force of playful zesty top notes with lavender honey, white musk and tonka bean (a chic, sexy and empowering combination we can confirm calms pre-date nerves, too).
Show off your style credentials
There are some classic investment pieces that never go out of style – like the dream pair of jeans or a crisp cotton shirt. Now behold the perfume equivalent: Monotheme’s Pompelmo, a failsafe favourite every woman should own.
Unexpected and uplifting, the blend of orange blossom, musk and sparkling grapefruit is a euphoric joy and has the rare quality of smelling incredible on everyone who wears it – which (top tip) makes it a safe bet for that difficult-to-please person on your Christmas gift list.
Add an air of mystery
If you’ve gone the extra mile to put a personal stamp on your look – from a hat here to a brooch there – then the bets are on that you’re in the mood for an individual scent that sets its own style agenda, like Roger & Gallet’s Rose Imaginaire.
A glorious masterpiece that will captivate everyone around you, this modern take on perfume’s favourite flower (a mesmerising mix of violet, strawberry, sandalwood and, of course, rose) creates sheer poetry on the skin. Unique and mysterious – everyone will wonder what your scent secret is.
Unlock your dark side
On evenings when a biker jacket is your trophy piece, go for bold with a womanly fragrance that has the power to make you feel strong and confident. Our go-to? The unforgettable beauty of Fragonard’s Caresse.
Not for the faint-hearted, this addictive perfume certainly doesn’t mess around – from the unapologetic drama of its gothic black bottle (serious dressing-table eye candy) to the rich, sexy and intoxicating medley of woody, musky and floral notes. A must-spritz for the wild at heart.
Wrap yourself in luxury
Soft, comforting and the perfume equivalent of layering up in your snuggliest knitwear – Aqua Rose’s combination of cosy warm notes with breezy sunlit florals is a one-of-a-kind mood booster that gets you through even the dullest of winter days.
A romantic mix of lotus flower and peony, underpinned by amber, ginger and cedarwood, its effect is vibrant yet calming. One spritz and you’ll understand why we call this the ultimate hug-in-a-bottle scent.
Keep it casual
On dress-down days when you don’t want to make too much effort (but also trick everyone else into thinking you have), turn to the magical power of Shay & Blue’s Scarlet Lily.
Effortlessly stylish, this timeless super scent hits the perfect note for making a great first impression – without straying too far from your comfort zone. It's infused with inviting notes of lily, lotus blossom and spices – you’ll be instantly charmed by its warmth. As will everyone around you.
