This season’s most transporting scents…

TOM FORD – Eau de Soleil Blanc

A lighter version of the original Private Blend Soleil Blanc, this fragrance captures the heat of summer with pistachio, bergamot and orange peel.

GUERLAIN – Aqua Allegoria Passiflora

Passiflora is reminiscent of a Tahitian garden – it’s fruity (lemon), floral (ylang-ylang) and undeniably feminine.

HERMÈS – Myrrhe Églantine

Christine Nagel’s newest creation makes wrists smell expensive. It is deep and dark that’s the myrrh but cut with wild rose, for an elegant scent.

GOLDFIELD & BANKS  – Blue Cypress

An invigorating, lagoon-green fragrance with notes of cypress, lavender and clove.

PRADA – Infusion Mandarine

As fresh as newly-pressed linen, this blend of neroli, orange flower and green mandarin smells wonderful spritzed through hair that’s still salty from the sea.


English mint meets mimosa from Provence and blackcurrant from Burgundy in a crisp, addictive scent.

ACQUA DI PARMA – Blu Mediterraneo Chinotto di Liguria

Creator François Demachy took inspiration from the bitter chinotto fruit and the rocky Ligurian coast. The result is a sharp, citrusy cologne that smells as good on women as it does men.

LOUIS VUITTON – Nouveau Monde

Sweet and slightly spicy, this saffron-based perfume was inspired by 19th-century explorer and aristocrat Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza, for whom Vuitton created an ingenious trunk that doubled up as a camp bed. It’s for men, but don’t let that stop you.
