We’re always on the hunt for anything that will leave us smelling good.
If we can leave a soft aroma in a room or get stopped on the street to be complemented on our scent then we know we’ve made the right choice.
And now high-street fragrance store Fragrance Direct has revealed the most popular perfumes of 2019 – and we kind of want to invest in them all.
The retailer’s top ten is made up of top brands like Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Dolce and Gabbana, making for the perfect Christmas presents, stocking fillers or maybe just a little treat for yourself.
