Now the clocks have gone back, we’re starting to embrace the new season for all it’s worth. The best way to do this? A brand new perfume – and luckily enough, the world of fragrance is going through a seasonal renaissance at the moment.
Some of the latest additions totally raise the bar as far as we’re concerned, so it’s time to take on the new season with this mix of heady, warming scents…
The bottle alone is something worthy of being displayed on your dressing table – but when combined with the scent? Well then it firmly earns pride of place in our autumn/winter beauty lineup. It combines notes of lily of the valley, jasmine and akigalawood, in turn leaving a softly floral scent on your skin, with a soft woody base.
