Your perfume choice says a LOT about your perfect holiday destination. Love a fresh, icy scent? Look for a Scandinavian mini break. Prefer hints of fruity, exotic notes? The Caribbean is calling your name. You get the picture. So here’s where you need to jet off to…
Perfume squad: roses, romance and designer labels
Holiday destination: Italy
Ciao bella. If you love romantic fragrances like the new Armani Si Passione for her, which oozes red rose and pear, or Armani Code Profumo for him (nutmeg and orange blossom), you’re ready for a break in Italy. Our fave thing to do in the country of romance? Take a drive through the Tuscany hills and try a bit of wine tasting.
Perfume squad: fruity, exotic and happy hour
Holiday destination: The Caribbean
Massive fans of Tom Ford Velvet Orchid for her and him? With its top notes of rum, middle notes of magnolia and a base of vanilla (from the Comoro islands off the south-east coast of Africa – how exotic), it’ll take you straight to The Caribbean, where the turquoise waters sparkle and you can find your own private hammock. So obvs that’s where you’ve got to vacay – yay!
Perfume squad: fresh, icy and the great outdoors
Holiday destination: Iceland
Ice, ice baby! If you’re drawn to icy scents like Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Glacé for her (with its notes of sorbet) or Hugo Boss Hugo Iced, which has top notes of iced mint leaves, you’ll love a Scandinavian adventure. We suggest Iceland, to see the Northern Lights (peak viewing time is from March to November) and explore the beautiful waterfalls. Ready, set, explore…
Perfume squad: floral, woody and adventure-seeker
Holiday destination: Thailand
We bet you love the smells of Guerlain Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale for her. Who couldn’t be drawn to the notes of lavender and sandalwood? And if you guys obsess over Lacoste L’Homme for him (cedarwood and jasmine), we’ve got just the destination for you. Thailand is brimming with fun and adventure, from visiting an elephant sanctuary to exploring the jungle. So make it the next place on your wish list…
Perfume squad: spicy, citrus and inner zen
Holiday destination: Japan
Scents with a tang? They’re WINNERS. Our top recommendations? Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal for her (blood orange and honey) or Hugo Boss Boss The Scent Intense (ginger and leather). They’ll make you want to travel to Japan, where you can relax among the famous cherry blossom trees and flower gardens or explore the culture of the street markets.
Perfume squad: gourmand, tropical and YOLO
Holiday destination: Australia
Gourmand fragrances are ALMOST good enough to eat. Fancy a bit of cocoa bean in Carolina Herrera Good Girl for her or cinnamon and glazed chestnuts in Armani Stronger With You for him? Then you’ll need to get a one-way ticket to Down Under. Australia is the land of YOLO, so tick everything off your bucket list while you’re there...
