It’s finally here! Hello, bank holiday weekend. Give your perfume shelf a bank holiday refresh and make this your best-smelling long weekend ever, we say...
FOR A SUMMER WEDDING: LANCOME LA VIE EST BELLE EN ROSE FOR HER
Enjoy the new La Vie Est Belle En Rose this bank holiday weekend or regret it forever. It’s a delicate, floral scent, made with notes as pink as the bottle – goji berries, peony and rose – and as it’s an eau de toilette, it’ll be light and fresh on your skin. From ceremony to dancefloor, it’s the perfect pick for a bank holiday wedding. We’re going wild for it!
FOR YOUR CITY BREAK: DKNY STORIES FOR HER
Inspired by NYC, DKNY Stories is a super-dreamy option if you’re heading off for a long weekend away. OK, so you may not be NYC-bound, but you’ll love the notes of pink guava mousse, white tea and vanilla bean, which will keep you feeling refreshed and bold.
FOR YOUR GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT: CACHAREL YES I AM FOR HER
You’ll master the art of partying this bank holiday, thanks to Cacharel Yes I Am. The bottle looks like a lipstick, and the smells are bold and seductive – milk, sandalwood and raspberry. It’s creamy and fresh, and has your name written all over it. Couple with a bold red lip and a standout LBD. Hello, long weekend!
FOR YOUR GIRLS’ NIGHT IN: ARMANI SI FIORI FOR HER
Planning a night IN with your best girls at bank holiday? Staying at home never smelt so good. Opt for the new Si Fiori, which is a radiant fruity-floral combo of mandarin, blackcurrant and neroli, with a hint of vanilla. We’re choosing this as our signature scent for spring and way beyond.
FOR YOUR MUSIC FESTIVAL: CALVIN KLEIN CK ONE SUMMER FOR HIM & FOR HER
Festival-goers, this fragrance was made for you! CK One Summer is loaded with incredible-smelling notes such as sparkling tangerine, sun-struck musk and matcha tea. We know, whoa! And it’s unisex, so you can share as much as you like – although it’s so good, you may not want to.
FOR YOUR BBQ IN THE SUN: DOLCE & GABBANA LIGHT BLUE SUN POUR HOMME FOR HIM
Happiness at bank holiday smells like this: an ultra-fresh mix of ginger, frozen grapefruit, rosemary and coconut water. Light Blue Sun Pour Homme is a gourmand scent that’s made for bank holiday BBQs, which make you feel totally ready for summer. Aquatic, sharp and bold, it ticks all the right boxes.
FOR YOUR DATE NIGHT: VIKTOR & ROLF SPICEBOMB NIGHT VISION FOR HIM
Is date night approaching? Fear not. This, guys, is how you do romance. We challenge your date not to love the notes of apple, roasted almond and tonka bean in Spicebomb Night Vision as you walk into the room. It’s a total game-changer.
FOR YOUR HOLIDAY: MONTBLANC EXPLORER FOR HIM
Jetting off at bank holiday? We’re jealous. But don’t forget to pack the Montblanc Explorer, which has just the right blend of fresh and woody ingredients. The perfumer sourced the bergamot from Italy, vetiver from Haiti and patchouli from the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. One sniff of it and you’ll feel like a globe-trotter!
