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 (artisanparfumeur.com) 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 (ateliercologne.com), is rich in heady tuberose and citrusy bergamot with a surprising shot of espresso coffee. Which will you try on?
