Boy SmellsFlor de la Virgen, £105
The Isolated Citrus
Forget fragrances overflowing with an abundance of clean, splashy citrus fruits. For spring 2022, we’re focussing on the solo citrus effect. Take this scent for example, which heroes pomelo - arguably the cleanest of citrus notes. It blissfully cuts through sweet jasmine flowers, while a dry, earthy composition of saffron, and deep, resinous olibanum at the base adds that turn-of-the-season edge.
Tom FordBitter Peach Eau de Parfum, £265
The fruity-but-fierce one
Sweet, juicy notes of peach are spliced with a sharp grapefruit accord above a grounding base of dry, earthy, leathery vetiver, dark, creamy sandalwood and rum in this grown-up take on a playful, fruity scent. A far cry from the coy, timid fruity fragrances of our past, this fragrance works best with a daring outfit and unapologetic attitude.
Maison MargielaWhen the Rain Stops Eau de Parfum, £49
The Moody Aquatic
Rain-soaked earth after a downpour is the inspiration for this moreish scent. It’s carefree and bracing on the senses with accents of pink pepper, sharp pine needles and carnal rose petals whirling on an clean, aquatic backdrop, while an enticing, vegetal, woody mist hovers in the background.
ByredoDe Los Santos Eau de Parfum, £130
The Musky Floral
When a fragrance calls on powdery, earthy, rooty iris for its bouquet, you can wave goodbye to ideas of a flouncy floral scent. Especially when that bouquet sits within a whirl of musk. A hint of aromatic sage offers an uplifting moment in this scent, while warming amber and heady whirls of incense leave you with a sense of calmness and serenity.
Escentric MoleculesMolecule 01 Eau de Toilette, £46
The Upgrade Of Airy
It’s the fragrance that smells like you, only better. And what greater way to mark our scented reintroduction into society. Centering on the Iso Super E aroma molecule - a subtle creamy, woody accord which adapts to each wearer, this is our spring 2022 edition of a next-to-nothing scent.
Jo LovesGolden Gardenia A Fragrance, £75
The Unexpected Bouquet
Florals for Spring may not be groundbreaking, but when heady, intoxicating gardenia petals sit within a nest of rich, woody accords, intertwined with spicy-but-smooth Suede Cardamom, it’s worth sitting up and paying attention.“A twist on the traditional floral scent,” says Jo.
