Scent away your January blues with these ‘Weekend fragrances’

January – a time when most of us are living for the weekend. Tasks we put off in December were right there waiting for us on our return, all those gifts left pockets a little empty and bleak mid-winter is leaving us full of lethargy. After the Christmas gluttony and late nights, January is usually about trips to the cinema, ‘life admin’, walks, and is generally a ‘dry’ month… unless we’re talking about perfume of course.

Whether you’re full of New Year beans and the socialising hasn’t stopped, or your hibernating on the sofa until further notice, we’ve a few ‘weekend’ scents to take you through…
