If there’s one thing I’ve learned about fragrance in my years as a beauty editor, it’s that the definition of the best perfume is totally subjective. While some people like sweet, gourmand scents (Marie Claire UK’s beauty writer, Grace Lindsay, is a big fan of these perfumes—particularly the new trend of pistachio notes), some prefer light, fresh perfumes, while others might be drawn to deep, long-lasting fragrances. Personally, I like to dabble in all kinds of different perfumes, they just have to possess something totally unique.

You see, one of my biggest beauty fears is that I might smell the same as everybody else. I’ll put my hands up and say it: I’m a total perfume snob. As a beauty editor whose job it is to test every fragrance that comes my way, my collection of perfumes is excessive, and a bottle has to be really special and unique for me to want to keep ahold of it. And this week, something came my way which very much did—Anine Bing Rose Wood.

You might know the name Anine Bing through her work as an influencer, or perhaps through her namesake brand’s iconic leisurewear and highly sought-after oversized blazers. Personally, I’m a huge fan of Anine Bing fashion. Some of my go-to winter coats and trans-seasonal investment pieces are Anine Bing. The minimalist designs ooze the kind of laid-back chicness that just speaks to me. And, up until last week, I didn’t even know the brand offered fragrances.
