We all know that Diptyque, Penhaligon’s and Miller Harris are some of the top names in the fragrance world. Renowned for their signature spritzes and candles it’s no wonder they are the silent partners behind some of the best shows in Spring Summer 2013 Fashion month.
Adding another layer to their catwalk shows, designers create an added ambiance with a scent that reflects their collections. And despite spring traditionally being the season to lighten up your perfume pick, it seems that for spring summer 2013 the designer gurus of the fashion world are feeling smoky...
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...
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.
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.
