New year, new goals? Well, while you’re getting fit at the gym, you’ll need these scent essentials to get you raring to go…
YOUR NEW MINI GYM BUDDIES
Here’s how to do your gym routine properly… pack a mini! That’s right, keep a 30ml scent tucked in your gym bag, so you can spritz it whenever you want. And if it doesn’t weigh down your bag and keeps you smelling fresh, then it’s a YES from us. Go zesty with Michael Kors Wonderlust Eau Fresh for her, 30ml, a citrus blend of grapefruit and mandarin. Or Armani Acqua Di Gio for him, 30ml, which oozes marine notes, lemon and lime.
YOUR FRESH-SCENT SAVIOURS
Need an extra boost before your workout? Go for an ultra-fresh scent that’s subtle and energising. Our top picks? Calvin Klein Women for her (fresh eucalyptus acorns, orange flower and Alaskan cedarwood) or Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male for him (mint, orange blossom and lavender). Top tip: don’t use too much before you work out – just one or two spritzes will nail it.
YOUR POST-WORKOUT PALS
You’ve gone crazy on the treadmill, you’ve showered and now you want to smell AMAZING. Continue your day the right way with Cacharel Yes I Am for her, a bold, girly mix of mandarin, raspberry and sandalwood (have you seen the lipstick bottle? WOW!). Guys, try YSL Y for him Eau de Parfum – you’ll enjoy smelling of ginger, apple and bergamot for the rest of the day…
