La Belle by Jean Paul Gaultier
La Belle, as the name suggests, is a delicately beautiful fragrance from Jean Paul Gaultier. Be attracted to the sensual subtleties of this scent and allow yourself to fall for its feminine charms. Top notes of mysterious green pear are effortlessly pear-ed with the spicy citrus of bergamot to create a fruity punch of a fragrance. Juxtaposing this, La Belle is rounded off by the comforting familiarity of cosy vanilla in its base notes. This exotic fragrance, bursting and bubbling with femininity, fittingly comes in a bottle sculpted on the female form. Elegant, sensual, addictive – this is everything that you’d want in a perfume to make a statement.
Le Beau by Jean Paul Gaultier
Picture a rugged lumberjack chopping wood as the sun sets over a misty forest - that is this fragrance. Le Beau embodies raw masculinity with its powerful, woody aromas. Top notes of addictive bergamot bring a freshness that tempts and dares you to lean in closer and find out more. Coconut wood fills the heart of this fragrance with whole bodied nutty notes to perfectly compliment the earlier fruity zest. Finally, warm tonka beans emerge out of the haze to provide a calming warmth that perfectly rounds the scent off. Powerfully masculine – this fragrance is perfect for someone who will never shy away from life’s great adventure.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Midnight
Stagger home after midnight and let yourself slip away into the mysteriously enchanting Flowerbomb Midnight. In the darkest hour before the dawn, midnight opens the door into a new day, so, burst through and embrace all the colours of the day with Flowerbomb. Tangy, refreshing bergamot plays off spicy pink pepper to create a powerful amalgamation of vivid scents. Floral peony explodes into the night to pair with fruity-sweet freesia creating an addictively floral bloom. Night blooming jasmine shows its true colours once darkness falls, releasing subtle yet addictive floral notes - It’s crazy how alive the world is when everyone is asleep. Finally, just like dawn, notes of patchouli and praline radiate outwards brightening your day. Flowerbomb Midnight, the perfect fragrance no matter the time of day.
Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Night Vision
Blast away those fragrances worries of yesterday and explode onto the perfume scene with Spicebomb. Viktor & Rolf have managed to pack a fragrance punch into their signature Spicebomb grenade bottle.

Next, heart notes of sage and rosemary intertwine with each other providing Spicebomb Night Vision with a sensual earthy, woody scent.
