Some women have a sig­na­ture scent, a life-long fra­grant com­pan­ion. For oth­ers, it’s all about a wardrobe of per­fumes, picked and spritzed ac­cord­ing to mood and the oc­ca­sion. Just as with clothes, you need some clas­sics, plus a new buy or two to up­date your style. Our sug­ges­tions: Chanel’s Gabrielle, £79, is a pretty, light and creamy flo­ral and will take you any­where, just like a crisp white shirt. Think of An­nick Goutal’s Nuit et Con­fi­dences, £117, as the sparkly party dress you’ll feel glam­orous wear­ing – spices, frank­in­cense and vanilla make it op­u­lent and sen­sual. With an over­dose of ve­tiver, usu­ally used in very woody men’s fra­grances, Dip­tyque’s Ve­tyve­rio Eau de Par­fum, £105, is so­phis­ti­cated and chic, like a tai­lored jacket. In­spired by a fresh, clean and salty sea breeze, L’ar­ti­san Par­fumeur Un Air de Bre­tagne (ar­ti­san­par­ con­jures up down­time. There’s a warm-skin cosi­ness to it, too – think cash­mere or ca­ble knits. And the state­ment ac­ces­sory? Ate­lier Cologne Café Tuberosa, from £65 (ate­lier­, is rich in heady tuberose and cit­rusy berg­amot with a sur­pris­ing shot of espresso cof­fee. Which will you try on?
