Byredo

Young Rose Eau de Parfum, £178.00

If You Like Classic Scents With A Twist…
If you love those classic and ever so slightly powdery rose fragrances, Byredo's Young Rose could be worth exploring. With a sprinkling of Sichuan pepper, the floral and musky notes are given a fresh modern twist that will have people asking what fragrance you're wearing.

Blanche Eau De Parfum Collector's Edition, £188.00

If You Like Soft, Minimalist Scents…
As the name suggests, Blanche was inspired by the colour white. It's pared back, it's minimalist, and yet it has a soft warmth to it thanks to sandalwood and musk. While pink pepper and neroli give you the uplifting freshness you want throughout summer, the musky base and hints of floral from white rose, peony and violet stay with you. It's the perfect scent for right now.

Lil Fleur Eau De Parfum, £122.00

If You Like Uplifting Rose Scents…
The latest offering from the brand has a nostalgic feel to it. Centred around damascus rose, it is peppered with notes that played starring roles in some of our favourite teenage scents, including uplifting tangerine and cassis, as well as vanilla. With hints of saffron and leather notes, it is a far cry from classic jammy, rose scents. If you want to take a walk down memory lane, this is definitely the most tasteful, sophisticated route to take.

Gypsy Water Eau de Parfum, £122.00

If You Like Light, Fresh Scents…
This is Byredo’s signature scent and it has a loyal celebrity following (both Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Sienna Miller have revealed they wear it). Immediately after spritzing you’re hit with light, zesty notes of lemon and bergamot before the scent dries down and the woody pine notes come through. The result is a clean, fresh and incredibly wearable scent.

Sundazed Eau de Parfum, £122.00

If You Like Juicy, Citrus Scents…
Unofficially called ‘summer in a bottle’, this perfume was made for those who love the refreshing, zingy scent of lemons and mandarins intertwined with sun-drenched jasmine. While the addition of cotton candy gives this citrus scent a dose of sweetness, it is by no means cloying thanks to the addition of neroli which helps to rebalance the freshness.

Byredo

Unnamed Eau de Parfum, £178.00

If You Like Powdery, Parma Violet-Esque Scents…
Another incredibly popular scent (and not just because you can name it yourself), this powdery blend of iris and violets is reminiscent of the childhood sweets. Yet, the clever burst of gin notes and lingering woody notes prevent this fragrance from feeling old fashioned or heavy. This is the kind of perfume that will have people asking what you’re wearing.

Bal D' Afrique Eau de Parfum, £122.00

If You Like Sophisticated, Vetiver Scents…
We would be doing Bal D’Afrique a disservice by simply calling it a woody, floral fragrance. Inspired by Paris in the 1920s and the city’s infatuation with Africa, this perfume is a rich, sophisticated mix of spicy, floral and woody notes. While you can expect a blend of fresh lemons, blooming marigolds and woody vetiver with your first sniff, this fragrance leaves a warming scent of amber and powdery musk and violet in its wake. It is a fragrance wardrobe must-have if you love vetiver.

Byredo

Velvet Haze Eau de Parfum, £122.00

If You Like Creamy, Musk Scents…
While some get a whiff of creamy coconut, for others this is reminiscent of fresh laundry. Inspired by the heady aromas of the swinging 1960s, Velvet Haze is a modern take on classic musk fragrances. Carefully balanced with hibiscus, tuberose and coconut, the musk and patchouli melt into your skin to offer a lighter, more wearable take on a classic fragrance.

Byredo

La Tulipe Eau de Parfum, £178.00

If You Like Clean, Floral Scents…
Fresh, clean, feminine and floral are the four words that sum up this perfume perfectly. Despite its name, this scent smells like a bouquet of freesias with hints of tulips coming through and a soft musk as it dries down. Overall, this is a beautiful, delicate floral scent that feels fresh and clean, rather than heavy or powdery.
