It might be an ode to what lies beneath our soils, but Loewe’s Earth has a soft and fuzzy side, thanks to cosy notes of violet and musk. A twist of truffle doubles down on the muddy inspiration, creating a powdery, almost animalic scent that feels unusual and entirely addictive.

Granado might be an emerging name in the UK, but it’s a long-loved mainstay in its native Brazil. The signature scent of Rio de Janiero, Carioca is fresh, light and as crisp as a morning spent int he Copacabana surf. Thankfully, the bottle is extra large: this is a failsafe scent you’ll find yourself reaching for every day.

D.S & Durga is an all-round unisex fragrance brand, but its Italian Citrus eau de parfum captures a decidedly masculine energy, evoking the spirit of the Italian coast with layers of fresh lemon, mandarin and blood orange.

A masterclass in unisex fragrance, 901 from Bon Parfumeur will have you and your significant other fighting for ownership. A sharp (but not bitter) citrus accord gives way to a spicy base fuelled by chilli, black pepper and nutmeg, before settling down to leave a warm and inviting trail.

Now, the iconic original comes in a host of guises, with the latest being C.L.U.B. With sparkling shiso and botanical rosemary, it’s a mood-boosting choice for everyday.

Byredo’s line-up is full of unique summery scents, but Mixed Emotions is one we find ourselves often coming back to. A flawless example of unisex fragrance, this lively blend combines black tea with a twang of citrus, before opening up to a papyrus and birch wood base. It’s memorable, curious, and ideal for heatwaves.

It might share a name with Netflix’s most stressful cinematic watch, but thankfully the similarities between Adam Sandler’s star turn and Frédéric Malle’s latest scent end there.

Uncut Gem is, however, a weighty olfactory proposition, combining tingling bergamot with a rich, lasting base of frankincense and amber. It’s big, bold, and perfect for the colder months.

Aesop Gloam Eau de Parfum

Aesop’s latest fragrance is perfect for anyone who likes a rich, spicy scent. Saffron leads the charge, bringing an earthy intensity, while iris softens the drydown with just a touch of sweetness. Unusual and addictive.

Chanel Paris-Edimbourg

A standout from Chanel’s acclaimed Les Eaux collection, Paris-Edimbourg has a unisex billing, yet leans towards the traditionally ‘masculine’ end of the spectrum. It’s a love letter to the wide open spaces of the Scottish Highlands, with dominant juniper and cypress breezing over a woody base. Bracing and fresh, it’s a refined choice for anyone dreaming of the great outdoors.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Cologne Forte collection, which pays homage to the sparkling aroma of Italian bergamot, receives a new addition this spring.

Aqua Media is the perfect choice for anyone who likes bright, energetic citrus scents: with verdant verbena and matcha tea underpinning the central citrus, it’s as refreshing as a plunge into the Mediterranean sea.

Hermès Eau de Basilic Pourpre Natural Spray

Christine Nagel’s brightest scent for Hermès is an instant classic. Playing up the botanical, almost aniseed-like properties of purple basil, this uplifting spritz is bright, mind-clearing, and just peppery enough. It’s a ‘natural spray’ rather than an eau de parfum, so spritz with abandon, day and night.

True fragrance lovers will remember Cologne Blanche, the very first scent in Dior’s prestige La Collection Privée collection, first launched in 2004. Now, with original creator Francis Kurkdjian back at the helm of the line, this powdery, almond and orange-blossom based cologne is back – much to the delight of many a loyal wearer.

Another fan favourite brought back from the archives, Kilian’s Sacred Wood is a triumphant ode to the soft warmth of sandalwood.

This deep, calming accord uses the most coveted variety of Mysore sandalwood, acclaimed for its milky and subtly spicy trail. Enhanced with cosy ambrette seed and Atlas cedar, this is a woody scent to be treasured.

Launched in 2018, Ombré Leather quickly became a Tom Ford classic, loved for its soft and slightly sweet take on the traditionally dark note.

Now, the much-loved original has been reinvented as an intensified Parfum. An ode to the designer’s Texan roots, the scent leaves a true leather trail, laced with a sensual, floral hit of violet and orris.

One particular ingredient is responsible for this scent’s cult status – Iso E Super. This aroma molecule doesn’t exist in nature and reacts differently to each individual’s skin chemistry, giving it the inimitable ability to smell different on everyone. The wearer will only smell it for a fleeting moment, but for those around you the unique scent will last all day.

Masters of the unexpected, Le Labo’s latest scent, Thé Matcha 26 offers a gentle, sweeter take on green tea, balanced against notes of fig, cedar and bitter orange. It’s beautiful alone, but can also be layered over another Le Labo classic – we recommend Tonka 25.
