Hands up who has been wearing the same perfume for months, even years? It’s easy to get stuck in a fragrance rut but why not step away from that bottle of signature scent and look for a new choice? After all what we need from a fragrance changes just as the seasons do. Choose something warming for winter; fresh and light for spring; sultry, yet citrusy for those balmy summer nights then come autumn turn to something earthy as the leaves begin to turn.
Here’s a calendar of fragrances to take you on an aromatic journey all the way to 2014...
This niche Swedish fragrance brand uses only 100% natural ingredients and Agonist is a welcome antidote to those icy, dark days in winter in bleak January. Brazilian Orange and Red Bilberries give you a much needed boost before Indian Sandalwood and Bourbon Vanilla give off the aroma of warmth, even if you don’t feel it!
Roja Dove, Perfumer says that ‘in the winter we tend to like scents which are cocooning and enveloping, whereas the summer uplifting fresh scents work better’. This fragrance is the best of both.
