The Beauty Edit: The Fragrance A-List

If you want to smell as good as you look, sniff out our glossy line-up of the season’s headiest perfumes. Like a Hollywood starlet from the silver screen, each one of our hand-picked fragrances has the power to captivate and delight. Romantic, floral and warm, their carefully balanced notes combine precious scents, from amber to tuberose and bergamot to sandalwood. If vanity is a sin, then we are sinners – ready for our moment in the spotlight and smelling like a dream. The best scents this season come from Gucci, Givenchy and Moschino and are best worn with party frocks, velvet and glittering shoes. Here are our favourites.

A bottle of Amouage Honour Eau de Parfum

AMOUAGE HONOUR

Prepare your olfactory senses for glamour and sophistication. Like every A-list starlet, this Eau de Parfum is both beautiful and deep. Although inspired by the tragic protagonist of the opera Madame Butterfly, there’s nothing tragic about this scent. A complex fragrance combining jasmine, lily and gardenia with amber and frankincense.

A bottle of Gucci Bamboo Eau de Parfum

GUCCI BAMBOO

If this Gucci scent was an actor, she would take the leading role in the season’s biggest blockbusters. Top notes of bergamot warm to lily, ylang ylang and a base of sandalwood. A fragrant leading lady.

Moschino Fresh Gold Couture Eau de Parfum

MOSCHINO FRESH GOLD COUTURE

Perfume pin-ups may not be a thing, but if they were, Moschino’s Fresh Gold Couture would be on our wall. For now, it’s in the beauty cabinet. The kitsch gold bottle might be tantalising, but what’s inside is even more so – spray for yellow mandarin, floral jasmine and sensual notes of vanilla and musk.

A bottle of Missoni Eau de Parfum

MISSONI EAU DE PARFUM

Steal the limelight with Missoni’s namesake Eau de Parfum. The pink-and-blue bottle is dressed as though for the red carpet and its floral, woody fragrance is always the most enchanting scent at the after-party. It’s time to take your bow.

A bottle of Givenchy Dahlia Divin Eau de Parfum

GIVENCHY DAHLIA DIVIN

A perfume designed to capture the ‘divine-like power of a modern-day goddess’, Givenchy’s Dahlia Divin promises a lot and delivers more. A must-have for any aspiring A-lister, rose is interwoven with light mimosa in a glowing gold elixir for the skin.
