The Scents Of Summer

Scents always smell better when carried on a warm summer breeze. Whether it’s to treat your home or treat yourself, check out our pick of summer fragrances at the Square.

A new home fragrance can work wonders. Have you tried Diptyque’s scented ovals, available at Space NK? An elegant white porcelain medallion encasing a scented wax, these come with a handy cotton cord so you can place anywhere in the house. Hang these within your living room area for a burst of freshness, or place between folded stacks of bedding for a comforting scent ahead of the evening. We love the ‘figuier’ scented oval which feels green and summery.

If you want to conjure up images of exotic holiday destinations, browse through Ortigia, which specialises in exquisite scents using ingredients from Sicily. Take your pick from fruity pomegranate or lime to feel energised, or indulge in the relaxing scent of coral shell, featuring the essence of dry Mediterranean plants.

How about some stylish summer scents? Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino Acqua (available at Space NK) features citrus, amber and floral notes which smell gorgeous on sunkissed skin. Or if you’re after a classic fragrance with a twist, then Liz Earle’s No.20 eau de parfum containing Damask rose might be the perfect scent for you.
