Show: Victoria Beckham in New York

Scent: Diptyque Feu De Bois

Style: Victoria’s style is slick, classic and has a unique edge, so it’s no wonder she chose a scent which complements this signature look. The sophisticated, woody bouquet is reminiscent of open fires at Christmas and long winter days – an unusual choice for a spring show.

Diptyque is also scenting Antonio Beradi, Christopher Kane and Richard Nicoll in London – we have no specifics as yet but we’ll be first to reveal the fragrances they choose...

Feu De Bois Candle £38 170g

Show: Medham Kirchoff in London

Scent: Penhaligon’s Cornubia

Style: This is the seventh season Penhaligon’s have worked with the design duo. This season they have gone for classic glamour wanting their show to be ‘reminiscent of old world beauty’. Cornubia has hints of sweet vanilla and woody musk.

Cornubia £80 100ml

Show: Giles in London

Scent: Miller Harris La Fumée Scented Candles and Incense

Style: Giles, whose shows are often extravagant and fun, may be hinting at a more grown-up aesthetic for spring if his fragrance choice is anything to go by. La Fumé is sensual and dramatic with hints of citrus, spice, smoke and wood.

La Fumee scented Candle £38 185g
