This one’s for you, mums to be! We know your nose is particularly sensitive because your sense of smell is massively heightened during pregnancy. So the good news is that you get to enjoy perfume even more. This, ladies, is how you do fragrance with a baby bump…
Who doesn’t love the smell of roses? Exactly. And you can enjoy it even more when you’re pregnant (you’re making us a little bit jel). You might just find a few roses still blooming in a garden, you could navigate your way to a flower shop… or we suggest the best option is to invest in a beautiful rose scent. Thank goodness for Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Rosa Excelsa, which gives you a rose overload, with Turkish rose and African dog rose. Lush!
Craving chocolate? Yep, we know it’s hard. So look for a scent to tame your appetite – much healthier! Our top picks? Hugo Boss The Scent for her (honeyed peach and cocoa) and Thierry Mugler Angel (chocolate, vanilla and praline). Now, if they don’t make you happy, nothing will.
We’re dedicated fans of ginger and have a sneaky feeling you are, too. Well, the smell of ginger can stop nausea during pregnancy. Yes, really! So spritz on the new Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Essence de Parfum, with its blend of ginger, jasmine and orange blossom, for an instant pick-me-up. And rejoice!
Musky scents are so in right now, and they’re perfect for helping you feel warm and cosy. But did you know musk is one of the most comforting smells for pregnant women? We recommend Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria, which mixes musk with mandarin leaves and rose. What an amazing combo! This perfume will be your new BFFE, trust us.
