Beauty rules are meant to be broken and there’s no time like the present to eschew the obvious. When it comes to fragrance, go ahead and be bold. Forgo the predictable sun-kissed citrus notes and wave goodbye to the mantra “less is more”. And whatever you do when you reach for a new bottle, don’t be confined by outdated notions of ‘for him’ or ‘for her’. Find yourself falling for something on his side of the bathroom cabinet? Go on, give it a dab. It’s time to move on from the age-old tradition of owning just a single signature scent: fragrance is supposed to be fun. Play with perfumes that embody your mood or the season and then take you on an unforgettable journey.
