I al­ways say that smelling good is just as im­por­tant as look­ing good. It makes scents!

Will is what I call a bestsmeller! He smells great all the time. Like, any time of the day. Now I know a lot of that has to do with at­trac­tion and genes and proper hy­giene, but not ev­ery­one can be a bestsmeller. Or can they? Here are a few tips.

Drink up! When it comes to fragrance, if you want it to stay on your skin longer, your skin needs to be hy­drated. Dry skin doesn’t hold scent, so it’s a good idea to also use a body lo­tion so there’s some­thing for the fragrance to ad­here to.

Where you ap­ply your scent re­ally makes a dif­fer­ence. For max­i­mum dif­fu­sion, ap­ply some fragrance to your pulse points: the in­ner wrists, the el­bows, be­hind the knees and at the nape of the neck. If you pre­fer a more sub­tle ef­fect, try spray­ing the fragrance in the air and then walk into it — like my mum Mar­garet does!

Now, having mas­tered the art of smelling good, how about some new launches to per­fect the art?

If you are al­ready a fan of Es­cen­tric Mol­e­cules, you will go crazy for these three new scents I spot­ted and sniffed in Sea­green, see sea­

Project Rene­gades, be­low, €165 each, is the new of­fer­ing from Mark Bux­ton, Geza Schoen and Ber­trand Duchau­four — three clas­si­cally-trained per­fumers who broke the clas­sic mould. Once again, these scents are un­like any­thing else on the market at the mo­ment. Ber­trand Duchau­four, be­low right, with it’s pink pep­per­corn is my favourite, although I love the rich fir and green ju­niper of Geza Schoen, be­low cen­tre, while, my bestsmeller Will is even more raaaar when he wears Mark Bux­ton, far left.
