The days are getting darker… and our go-to scents richer. Like an espresso versus a latte or a neat version of your favourite spirit, these are the classics that have been amped up for autumn...
GUERLAIN MON GUERLAIN EAU DE PARFUM INTENSE FOR HER
Vanilla fans, listen up. In this new take on the Mon Guerlain fragrance, the note takes centre stage. Starting off as a soft, fluffy comforting cloud, it’s closely followed by lavender, patchouli and sandalwood for a long-lasting hynotising aroma that makes you want to keep coming back for more… and more. Strong, unique and unbelievably sensual, it’s just what you’d expect from a scent that has Angelina Jolie as its poster girl.
HUGO BOSS THE SCENT ABSOLUTE FOR HIM
Dark, smoky and spicy, this uses a trio of aromatic notes for a stop-and-stare scent that’s like nothing else you’ve tried. Maninka fruit lends depth and a fruity rum element, while vetiver behind the ginger adds zing. The original’s perfect for everyday wear, but this ultra-rich version was just made to be worn while lounging in a bar after hours.
HUGO BOSS THE SCENT ABSOLUTE FOR HER
Coffee, dark chocolate and all things noir… that’s just where this scent will take you. The notes are similar to the original version, but dialled up and powerful, as though the filter’s been taken off. Think coffee beans, vanilla, peach and oozing honey with a twist of vetiver – perfect as the nights close in.
BURBERRY HER INTENSE FOR HER
Talk about a winter wonder. This new, dark and fruity scent is filled with deeper, stronger notes, as though the original’s been given an ultra-elegant makeover. The result is a scent you’ll struggle not to fall for – a veil of cherry, blackberry, jasmine and violet that’s just asking to be worn as you nuzzle into a plush scarf.
