Christmas has never smelt so good.

What does your perfume say about you?


Message in a bottle

Be delicate, demure or deceptively sweet, depending on your signature scent.


Prada Luna Rossa


Named after Prada's competition sailing boat, Luna Rossa is fresh, timeless and sexy scent for men. The mix of sage and spearmint makes an entrance before a spicy, wood-influenced finish. EDT 100ml $124.


Diesel Loverdose

Ladies, if you can't get enough of liquorice, this is your No 1 scent. Apple is the next note to follow, accompanied by soft tones of jasmine and orange blossom. EDT 50ml $99.


Armani Code Ultimate

There's something edgy and cool about this manly scent. It's strong, metallic and conjures images of a striking Armani-clad man who isn't afraid to get his hands dirty. EDT intense 75ml $169.


Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb (limited edition)

This subtle scent doesn't make a grand entrance and could not be pigeon-holed as sweet, flowery or citrus-dominated, despite having all of these characters. It's romantic and warm. EDP 50ml $179.


DKNY Fresh Blossom Eau So Intense It is of little surprise that this is a blossom in a bottle, thanks to the strong influence of rose and lily of the valley. Fresh and very floral. EDP 50ml $130.

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle

What at first smells similar to orange-mango Raro, loses its sweetness as the orange blossom and patchouli make their presence known. A delicate, feminine scent. EDP 30ml $105.
