Let’s get down to business. If you want to smell incredible on holiday, stick to our list of must-packs. You won’t regret it…
A MINI SCENT
If you’re doing a lot of travelling – plane journeys, car rides, overnight trains – a 30ml bottle filled with your favourite scent is a must for topping up on the go. We’re obsessing about Marc Jacobs Daisy Love for her, 30ml, for summer, with its notes of daisy tree petals and musk. Or try the new Paco Rabanne Olympea Legend for her, 30ml. Montblanc Explorer for him, 30ml, is an adventure in a bottle, thanks to its ingredients sourced from all over the world: bergamot from Italy, vetiver from Haiti and patchouli from the Indonesian island of Sulawesi.
A LARGE SCENT
Pack a large bottle in your suitcase for optimum scent points, and spritz before your days out or evenings by the beach. The benefit? There’ll be enough juice to last you all holiday and beyond. Our top 100ml bottle for women? Lancôme La Vie Est Belle En Rose for her, an ultra-feminine bottle filled with all things pink – roses, peonies and goji berries. For men, try Versace Eros Flame, 100ml. Its notes of lemon, rosemary, pepper and vanilla will make you smell fiery and fierce – and stand out from the crowd.
A PERUME POWDER
Is it a powder? Is it a perfume? Well, technically it’s perfume in powder form – and we couldn’t be more psyched about Armani launching this iconic fragrance, a blend of blackcurrant liqueur, rose and freesia. Armani Si Perfume Powder is what it says on the tin. All you have to do to smell incredible is rub your fingers into it and apply it to your wrists or neck. No fuss = a yes from us.
A FRAGRANT DEODORANT
Guys and gals, you’ll need to pack a fragrant deodorant for your holiday. It’ll keep you smelling ultra-fresh, whether you’re touring the city or chilling out by the pool. You gals can’t go wrong with Burberry Her Deodorant Spray, which will leave you smelling like strawberry, raspberry and vanilla. Guys should opt for Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Deodorant Stick, with its unique smell of mint, cinnamon and sandalwood. It’ll do the trick, we’re sure.
A HAIR MIST
Up your holiday game with a mist that will keep your hair smelling gorgeous. And guess what? Mugler Angel Hair Mist for her infuses your hair with notes of vanilla, exotic fruits and bergamot, just like the Mugler Angel scent. Apply it to the ends of your hair or the nape of your neck for maximum impact.
