On Wednesday 24th we’re holding an event with a very exciting fragrance house called @parterreatkeynestonmill - join us and discover this innovative British house. Our co-founder Jo Fairley will be in conversation with the founders, there’ll be live distillation of fragrance happening, all amongst the beautiful setting of the @rakesprogress pop up on Floral Street. For the last few tickets go to perfumesociety.org/events - see you there!
We went to @lessenteurs last night to check out their new refurbishment, and we can assure you, it’s gorgeous. Shiny shelves full of exquisite bottles, a rotating fragrance wheel of perfumes, a private downstairs room for personal fragrance consultations with the wonder that is #jamescraven and a team of staff that are knowledgable, passionate and truly helpful. As the late husband of founder, Betty Hawksley, said ‘come to Les Senteurs to find the perfume you didn’t know you loved’. We suggest you head to #elizabethstreet Soon! More of the tour in our instastories.
Spent the morning being charmed by the new @britneyspears Sunset Fantasy fragrance. Mandarin, grapefruit, apple shimmer in the top of the scent and get it off to a fruity start. At the heart sits juicy peach, orange blossom and raspberry leaves; sweet and girly and all things nice. The base is what really sold it to us though, a combination of sandalwood, vanilla, amber and steamed milk froth, is taking us back to holiday days, warm skin with the leftover creamy scent of sunscreen. Just the kind of vacation in a bottle we need. Out in Today in @superdrugloves for all your daydreaming needs. *also #nofilternecessary when bottles/blooms look this good
Dreaming of far off lands with a spicy #SOTD from @zegnaofficial - Indian Spice. Cardamom, coriander and star anise create an electrifying warmth. A unique blend that conjures the exotic beaches of Goa, and the life of the spice markets in Madurai. #spicy #fragrance #ermenegildozegna #zegna #mensfragrance
What’s getting us through #bluemonday ? Only thinking about the launch of this beauty from @versace_official Dylan Blue Pour Femme. A cheeky combination of fruity notes; icy peach, sharp Granny Smith apple and tangy black currant, are fused with a plethora of blossoms; jasmine, rose and forget-me-nots, to name a few. White woods and musks mean the dry down is oh-so-soft.
Starting off today with a bang - @cartier La Panthère is a classic, glamorous Chypre that is all woman. Notes of Gardenia fold into a Chypre accord (all mossy, rich and earthy) with oodles of velvety musks. It’s bright and chic and is giving us life on this rather grey day. What’s your grey day scent?

Spotted this new @fredericmalle in @printempsofficial in Paris - we’ll let you know when it’s due to land here. By Fanny Bal, here’s what they tell us: ‘An ode to “enfants terribles” and all manner of monkey business: doodles on the blackboard, devious schemes and pranks galore. Petitgrain, neroli, bergamot and rosemary are infused with a cheeky smile of violet and strawberry for a taste of bubblegum, old-fashioned sweets and getting away with murder.’ Playful, wearable, a giggle in a bottle. #comingsoon #exciting #launch #fredericmalle #nicheperfume
Storming into the weekend wearing our favourite @ateliercologne blue. Mistral Patchouli; soft spicy swirls of black pepper and star anise mingle with incense, Vetiver and geranium. The star of the show, Patchouli, warbles a deep, rich song, throughout. Perfect weekend wearing.
The creamy sensuality of the tiare flower in @escentric_molecules Intelligence & Fantasy, is blended skilfully with magnolia bud and hedione (the greener side of jasmine) in the floral heart. The top songs with bright citruses, bergamot and mandarin, and a soft base of musks and cashmeran. A perfect scent to brighten a dark day.
