Move over citrus scents, this month strawberries and cream are in the spotlight – with the start of Wimbledon, and scents that are too delicious not to scream about. Known as gourmand fragrances – which means they include notes that are edible – they smell good enough to eat. So here’s our top choice, which will have you drooling, trust us…
Wear at: summer events, garden parties and weddings
Ah, our fave fruity note. Strawberries have a real moment when the tennis starts, so be in tune with Juicy Couture Malibu Surf for her (only £24.50 for 75ml), which mixes the intensely flavoured Mara strawberries with pink watermelon and sparkling mandarin. If you’re more of a floral fan, spritz Marc Jacobs Daisy for her, a classic blend of wild strawberries, violet and jasmine (£55 for 50ml and £78 for 100ml).
Wear at: evening events, dates and holidays
Milky notes are having a moment, don’t you know? So it’s time to invest in one of our fave cream scents. You’ll smell warm and sugary, the perfect combo when you’re in the sun. Say hello to Tom Ford Orchid Soleil (£56 for 30ml, £79 for 50ml and £112 for 100ml), which packs chestnut cream, vanilla and orchid into a gorgeous rose-gold bottle. Do you have a sweet tooth? You need Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Sucré (£37 for 30ml, £50 for 50ml and £69 for 100ml), which smells like whipped cream, almond cream, peach nectar and cocoa bean. Enough said.
