Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves



Acting beauty editor


Smell gorgeous and feel festive with our pick of the scents worth adding to your wish list

1. Claire Askew, kidswear editor: “Fragonard Bigarade Jasmin, £35, has a free spirit and brings me joy with every spritz. Both sparkling and zesty, it sings happiness – must be the bitter orange, grapefruit and warmth of jasmine. It’s on my wish list, again.”

2. Dulcie Emerson, deputy fashion editor: “L’Occitane Terre de Lumiere, £59, is like a comforting dessert for the senses – zesty on impact, it melts to lavender muddled with honey and almond before turning musky. It really does smell delicious!”

3. Sam Dean, acting beauty editor: “The classic Rosie for Autograph fragrance, £28, is a routine finishing touch to my festive outfits. Just one spritz makes me feel more dressed up and polished thanks to the gleaming hero note, rose.”

4. Sophie Hines, fashion editor: “I would describe Shay & Blue Scarlet Lily, £55, as a modern floral with a twist. Just like a fresh bunch of my favourite flowers, lilies, mixed with ylang ylang and a dash of sultry amber. Divine.”
