WANDERLUST EAU FRESH
Setting out to satisfy our inner nomads is this airy, outdoorsy eau de toilette – just crying out to be worn to a riverside picnic, a summer party, your best friend’s wedding in an Italian castello… In a bottle of reminiscent of the prettiest seaglass, explore Italian bergamot, pink grapefruit, Granny Smith apples, muguet, white peony and jasmine sambac, enfolded in sheer musks and sandalwood – definitely your perfume passport to summer. Try it in our Day & Night Discovery Box now, too! From £44 for 30ml eau de toilette At John Lewis YSL
BLACK OPIUM SOUND ILLUSION
Part good-enough-to-eat gourmand, part va-va-voom floral, Black Opium Sound Illusion is all 100% rock chick glam, powered by black coffee, armfuls of white flowers, cedar, patchouli, and the Oriental warmth of vanilla. Aside from the scents themselves, what attracts perfumistas to the Black Opium collection is a succession of show-stopping bottles – here, that famous ‘window’ surrounded by a glittering music ‘equaliser’, through which the rosy pink juice can be glimpsed.

£72 for 50ml eau de parfum theperfumeshop.com ROOS & ROOS IN THE WOOD FOR LOVE
If you’re a fragrant force, with L’Eau d’Issey, YSL Kouros and Jean Paul Gaultier Classique under your creative belt, why wouldn’t you use your name for your own perfume house…? So: Chantal Roos’s brand Dear Rose will know be known as Roos & Roos (she’s in partnership with daughter Alex), adding this mossy, woodsy, rain-drenched creation, which beckons us into the forest with notes of iris, violet, cedarwood, patchouli and earthy vetiver to their perfumed portfolio. £170 for 100 ml eau de parfum At Roos & Roos    NINA RICCI
BELLA EAU DE TOILETTE
What does a modern-day princess smell like? Musk and apple like Cinderella and Snow White? Well yes – but think less ‘demure damsel’ and much more ‘independent It Girl’. With Barbara Palvin as the muse – model and Instagram star (8 million+ followers), it’s a ‘reimagined princess’ perfume – vibrant acidic floral, blazing with the mouthwatering quirkiness of rhubarb softened with sparkly rose jelly and fresh freesia, with a magical aura of sensuality from musk and vanilla. From £38 for 30ml eau de toilette feelunique.com LOUIS VUITTON ORAGE
Two years after the launch of a complete collection of women’s scents for Louis Vuitton by Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud, the master turns his attention to a men’s fragrance wardrobe of five breathtaking creations. We find ourselves magnetically drawn to Orage, in which somehow, this genius perfumer recreates the heady, heavy air before a thunderstorm via earthy patchouli, vetiver and iris, with a lightning flash of iris and bergamot in a juice itself the exact colour of a storm. £185 for 100ml eau de parfum louisvuitton.com
