Base notes of leather, sandalwood and patchouli rock out in a bouquet of cucumber and rose de mai absolute.
“It’s about East End Boys and West End Girls, and new and old, and just enough floral and a lot of plain, old sexy for a hot summer night,” says Simon Tooley, fragrance guru and owner of Etiket boutique.
To get the most out of a summer scent he recommends applying perfume to clean, freshly hydrated skin.
“If your skin is dry the fragrance will not last as long. Applying an unscented moisturizer and allowing it to penetrate skin before applying your scent is best,” he says.
