Issey Miyake’s floral perfume is an instant classic. A Drop d’Issey Eau de Parfum is the perfect companion for women on the go, with its convenient packaging. More importantly, it leaves one smelling as sweetly as the flowers it is made from—like damask rose, lilac, orange blossom, and jasmine—and as enticing as its underlying notes of musk, almond milk, solar notes, star anise, ambroxan, cedarwood atlas, and vanillin.

Summer Spice

Be a cut above the rest with Acca Kappa’s Libocedro & Salvia Eau de Parfum. It is a luxuriously decadent perfume with intense scent trails made up of balsamic and woody notes. It is a fragrance full of character, ripe with notes of spice from the cardamom, citrus from the bergamot, warm earthiness from the sage, and sweetness from the rose.

Home Sweet Home

From Diptyque’s collection of luxurious home cleaning products comes La Droguerie, an odor-removing room spray. It is an instant staple among household products, capable of fragrancing your home with ease and efficacy. This interior spray can eliminate unpleasant everyday odors and replace that unpleasantness with fresh basil, mint, and tomato leaves, making home maintenance an enjoyable task.

Breeze Along

The Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette is the perfect daytime fragrance as it captures the quintessence of summers along shorelines. By bringing harmony to woody and fruity notes, Dolce & Gabanna aims to bring to mind summertime in the Mediterranean with every whiff of its fragrant embrace. At the top, you experience the aromatic amalgamation of Granny Smith apples, Sicilian lemons, and bluebells. At its heart is a delicate floral bouquet of jasmine and white rose along with bamboo wood, giving way to warm, seductive notes from Virginian cedarwood, amber, and white moss.

Vacation Mode

Jo Malone’s Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne is a cult classic for a reason, and it’s one scent that you can’t go without in scorching conditions. It immediately refreshes the senses, with its top note of ambrette seeds, heart note of sea salt, and base note of sage. With one spritz of this cologne, you experience a wash of freshness, allowing you to come alive again to its aroma.
