Fragrances for festivals & getaways – travel sizes & samples a-go-go!

When summer hits, thoughts turn to fun – but festival season, staycations or travelling aboard can okay havoc when thinking about which fragrances to take with you. Whether you’re looking for perfume to pack in a rucksack, scents to stash in a suitcase, or simply pocket-friendly fragrances to have either you wherever you go – we’ve got you covered. And even if you’ve nowhere planned to escape to yet this summer, they’re a brilliant way to try a new scent for the warmer (we hope!) weeks ahead…

 

 

Escentric Molecules M+ Mandarin

Molecule 01 + Mandarin consists of the original (utterly iconic) Iso E Super + mandarin. Iso E Super is an abstract synthetic molecule characterised as a skin-like cedarwood note with a warm, velvety cocooning sensation. Squeezed with citrus, it’s a summer dream.

(Why not get the travel spray as part of The Platinum Discovery Box for only £25 / £21 for VIPs plus, you’ll be getting to try TWELVE other fragrances & a scented soap!)

 

 

 

Montblanc Explorer

A fragrant invitation for adventurers, this calls to taking the path less travelled via a cool breeze of citrus-tinged vetiver blowing through a supple, rugged leather, with ripples of rich patchouli evoking bohemian spirits.

Jeroboam GOZO

Inspired by the Maltese Island of the same name, this is a bestseller for the house, and it’s easy to smell why. A huge scent in a small bottle, the saffron-sizzled white floral notes are swelled with the super long-lasting amber of the base. Like wearing a sunset that lasts for aeons.

Juliette Has a Gun Sunny Side Up

An immediate blast of sparkling jasmine escapes like a suppressed giggle, followed swiftly by a fluffy white towel snuggle of sandalwood and the delectable creaminess of iris butter. It’s retro suntan oil with a waft of vanilla ice-cream on the breeze as the sun dips its toes in the ocean.

Versace Dylan Turquoise

Conjuring summer in the Med, the shimmering lemon and mandarin conjure sunshine-dappled azure waters, glittering with juicy fruits and fragrant flowers. A woody dry-down beckons balmy summer nights and this truly is a scent to transport the senses. A holiday wherever you wear it.

Adscenture Onward to Seville

A perfumed passport to happiness, this fragrant ticket invites you to ‘bathe in the intoxicating scent of Seville. Experience the serenity of tranquil orange tree courtyards. Wandering through a haze of cassis and white jasmine with hints of vanilla.‘ Borne aloft on sunlit neroli, it’s bliss, bottled.

Coach Floral

The dinkiest bottle brimming with pink peppercorn, an icy splash of pineapple sorbet and a radiant heart revealing a bouquet of fragrant flowers. Tea rose, jasmine sambac and gardeni swathe with sunlit warmth, drying down to smooth woods, patchouli and a sheer, musky trail.
