Perfume isn't the only way to wear a beautiful scent, we pick our favourite aromatic products from top-to-toe
Just sprayed your perfume a couple of hours ago, and already the scent has faded? It’s a problem we seem to be having all too often recently with high-street perfumes.
If you want a scent that will really last, we love Roja Parfums. This lilac scent is universally soothing and unusual, and will guarantee lots of compliments. With notes of bergamot, jasmine, orange blossom and vanilla, you can expect it to be worth every penny.
Available from Roja Parfums

All of the fragrances in Paul Edmond’s new lifestyle collection were developed with top perfumers in Grasse, France’s capital of perfume, and are properly layered just like an EDP.

Soap suffers from a bit of an image problem – memories of the bars of old that parasitically sucked up moisture and smelled like laundry detergent don’t help – but the new crop of super-luxe soaps from prestigious fragrance houses are changing all that.
If you are yet to try and therefore fall head-over-heels in love with Sea Salt & Wood Sage, here’s a fabulous way to try it out, delicately perfume yourself and moisturise into the bargain.
