It’s here – and the long weekend is the best excuse to treat yourself to an incredible new scent. Need some inspo? Here you go…
GUCCI MEMOIRE D’UNE ODEUR FOR HER & FOR HIM
Whether you’re hitting up late summer parties or going to a wedding, Gucci Mémoire d’Une Odeur will have you covered. The fresh, floral notes of chamomile and jasmine petals are sensual and sweet, especially when mixed with the vanilla and sandalwood. It’s the only scent you’ll need for the bank holiday weekend and, trust us, you’ll be wearing this Gucci perfume way through autumn, too…
THE PERFUME EDIT CITRUS FRESCO FOR HER & FOR HIM
Vegan, unisex, cruelty-free and recyclable – does it get any better than that? Nope. Citrus Fresco was made for your adventures this bank holiday weekend. No matter how busy you are, it’ll keep you refreshed and uplifted, thanks to its notes of lemon, lavender and rosemary. Lush.
TOM FORD METALLIQUE FOR HER
We're obsessed with each and every Tom Ford perfume, but this one really stands out. Woody, energetic and a little bit edgy, Tom Ford Metallique is a blend of creamy sandalwood, pink peppercorns and lily of the valley. And its high-shine, metallic bottle is totally lust-worthy. This will give a lasting impression, whether you’re having a long weekend away or socialising with your squad.
LANCOME IDOLE FOR HER
Love a sensual, radiant smell? Then cue your latest obsession, Idole - the new, alluring perfume for women. With its ultra-thin bottle (one of the slimmest in the world) and beautiful blend of rose and jasmine, we’re well and truly hooked. This one’s coming with us everywhere for the long weekend.
JEAN PAUL GAULTIER LE BEAU FOR HIM
If you’re jetting off at bank holiday (lucky you), you’ll need to take the new Jean Paul Gaultier Le Beau with you. Say hello to the most addictive summer smell around, with bergamot, coconut wood and tonka bean for an ultra-masculine, exotic smell. And have you seen a cheekier bottle? Thought not.
