Magnolia Sensuel - new from @bulgariofficial - a sparkling, light ode to magnolia, bolstered up by orange blossom and tangerine. With a healthy dose of musk and patchouli in the base, giving a wink to its darker, sultry side. #sotd #bulgari #perfumesociety #magnoliasensuel #floral #launch #new

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 😉🌸

A morning of Psychoanalysis courtesy of @bella_freud ‘s fragrant candle. A heartfelt blend of neroli, lilacs, tobacco flower and amber, mean we love lying back on that couch. Available @libertylondon

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.

12💬

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?

Getting my dizzy with the maze of light surrounding this @tomford beauty. Spotted in their new #coventgarden boutique, with the most fascinating fragrance wall, have you visited yet?

Like an uplifting symphony of flowers. We’re crushing on @lizearlebeautyco No 100 today. A delightful blend of all the floral heroes; Rose, jasmine, orange flower and ylang ylang. Touches of citrus in the top and sandalwood in the base, we say: divine.

@millerharris urging us to stay in bed. And we would, if it weren’t for their AMAZING sale on at the moment... Act quickly as it’s only on for another week and a half!

@lartisanparfumeur ‘s Un Air de Bretagne is giving us a breath of life today. Bright, fizzy citruses are cooled by watery mists. Dazzling neroli mingles in saltwater tinged seaweed. Cool and breezy.

Please bring these beautiful #cameo soaps to the UK @fragonardparfumeurofficiel @agneswebster - here, the most stunning Mon Oranger scent (we stocked up in the Paris boutique!), but also available in #rosetastic Ma Rose, lily-powered Mon Lys, zestily uplifting Ma Bergamote, aromatic Mon Immortelle, and the most masculine of the bunch, Mon Poivre. The good news: @fragonardparfumeurofficiel WILL SHIP! #smallpleasures (Actually, on second thoughts, won’t you pretty-please just open a boutique in the UK...?)❤️

@rodinoliolusso 3. Sharp herbaceous geranium hits alluring flowers; ylang ylang and jasmine grandiflora, before melting away to an earthy - but soft - base. Orris root mingles with sandalwood and musk. Pretty heavenly if you ask us... #rodin #rodin3 #fragrance #perfume #jasmine

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

Because who doesn’t love a fresh bar of soap? Admiring these sexy little @diorparfums soaps, on this Monday morning, at their new boutique on Rue Saint-Honoré - one of life’s great small pleasures, a new bar of soap. #lifessmallpleasures #soap #paris #dior

@bondno9ny have landed @Harrods with exclusive fragrances and beautiful #blingtastic bottles... Love this! #eyecandy

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 very last weekend to catch the @dior exhibition in Paris - where we loved seeing up close this original bottle of #Diorissimo, that ultimate lily of the valley perfume from the genius #edmondroudnitska #icon

12💬

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.

Heading on into 2018 clean, clear and crisp like this shot of one of our favourite modern classic scents, Daisy @marcjacobsfragrances - a lively, lovely blend of jasmine, sandalwood and wild berries. What’s your New Year scent?

Living for this @moltonbrown Pomander right now, in their festive scent Fabled Juniper and Lapp Pine, making home smell just like Christmas. There’s a ceramic inside the ball that you Spritz with the scent, and it’ll waft for days. #christmassorted 🎄🍾💫👌
