Whether you’re heading to the beach or slopes, we’ve got your winter holiday break covered. Prepare to smell incredible wherever you’re travelling…
A good beachy scent can be tricky to get right, but we know of two that tick all the boxes. They let you go natural in fresh, citrussy scents and smell incredible, whether you’re sunbathing or having a dip in the sea. Michael Kors Wonderlust Eau Fresh for her is especially dreamy, thanks to its notes of bergamot, grapefruit and mandarin. Guys can keep it cool with Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Intense Pour Homme, which mixes mandarin, grapefruit and salty aquatic accord (smells of the beach). Paradise is simply a spritz away…
Heading to the slopes? Or just ready to après ski? Take these icy fresh scents with you. Inspired by nature, Calvin Klein Women smells like a winter walk, with eucalyptus acorns, orange flower and Alaska cedarwood. Then there's Jimmy Choo Man Ice, which will transport you to the woods, thanks to the patchouli and moss.

Mugler Aura for her has all the green botanical vibes with it’s top notes of rhubarb leaves. And with a touch of vanilla and orange blossom too, it’s totally sweet and exotic.
