From elegant floral finds to warm, sensual scents that capture the spirit of summer, take a look at our top picks for the sunniest season.
A classic floral with a twist, this sultry fragrance features bright and uplifting notes of magnolia, bergamot and juice white nectarine, with solar amber and driftwood adding a little spice, so it never feels too sweet. The perfect summer party scent.
If you're spending your summer in the city or hitting the festivals, London Poppy is the scent you want in your backpack or clutch. A bold floral with an urban twist, you'll love the sultry jasmine sambac notes, mingled with Sicilian lemon and marine accord for a sparkling, effervescent finish.
