edeniste Energy Lifeboost® £68 for 30ml eau de parfum
Absolutely essential at this time of year (or whenever you need a pick-me-up) – a mood-boosting blend og citrus notes really feel ‘…As bright and empowering as a tall dewy glass of freshly squeezed juice.’ Get up and glow.
Molton Brown Wild Mint & Lavandin eau de toilette: £85 for 100ml
The EDT revives flagging spirits via wild mint, the vivid verdancy of freshly torn basil leaves grounded by a caress of orris, silky sandalwood and rounded by tonka bean.
Sisley Eau de Campagne £84 for 50ml eau de toilette
Evoking the aqueous juiciness of the tomato and carrot atop luscious fruits and a silvery drift of incense amidst grassy herbs, Jean-Claude Ellena’s genius use of tomato leaf is freshening as ever in this timeless masterpiece.
Lancôme Ô De Lancôme £41 for 75ml eau de toilette
A sparkling icon since 1969, spritz a whoosh of effervescent exhilaration, the clean floral notes of jasmine, honeysuckle and lily of the valley radiating against a backdrop of herbaceously bracing breath of fresh air.
ACQUA DI PARMA Colonia Futura £92 for 50ml eau de Cologne
A head-clearing herbaceous fusion of lavender, clary sage and vetiver, with sunlit shafts of grapefruit, bergamot, pink pepper and lemon. This feels like you’ve been on holiday, even on a blustery, drizzly walk in the park!
