Our fave islands and the scents to match

By Lauren Carbran
 

Warning: you’ll probably book a holiday after reading this. Sun, sand and exotic scents? Yes, please! That’s right – we’re in full summer spirit, so here are our favourite islands and the perfumes to match. Welcome to paradise…

11Bora Bora

Bora Bora is nothing short of UH-MAZING. Maybe it’s the turquoise waters, tropical coral reefs and water bungalows on stilts, but we’re drooling over it, big time. And did you know that the South Pacific island is one of the world’s most popular honeymoon destinations? Too right. See ya later, Venice – we’re heading to Bora Bora with our imaginary hubby. The scents to match? Tom Ford Velvet Orchid for her (Turkish rose and Moroccan rose) and Hugo Boss Bottled Unlimited for him (rose and musk). Romantic, much? Here we come, Bora Bora…

22Turks and Caicos

If you’re gonna do summer holidays right, it’s time to take cues from the hottest celebs. And our fave luxury island has got to be Turks and Caicos. FYI – Kylie Jenner rented out a six-acre, three-property estate here, with 23 bedrooms, private beaches and swim-up rooms for her 19th birthday in August 2016 (casual). Not got a credit card like the Kardashians? Well, you can smell like you’re there by wearing Escada Fiesta Carioca for her, which blends passion fruit and raspberry, or Hollister Wave For Him – a mix of bamboo leaves and grapefruit. Mmm!

33Mauritius

Ooh er. Who fancies coming along to the tropical island of Mauritius? This Indian Ocean island has it all – from white-sand beaches and endless palm trees to its beautiful bright-pink national flower, waterfalls, national parks and mountains. And if you thought it couldn’t get any better, the island’s most recent visitors include the Made In Chelsea cast, Paris Hilton and Millie Mackintosh. So it’s time to get your perfume flower power going with Guerlain Mon Guerlain for her (iris, jasmine and lavender notes) and Davidoff Cool Water Man (made for an exotic island, combining jasmine, lavender and peppermint). We’re smitten.
