Miller Harris Classics Eaux Parfumees

Miller Harris Classics Eaux Parfumees

I’m far too busy to pot a geranium, but never too rushed to love receiving flowers!  So while the Chelsea Flower Show is the perfect inspiration for reluctant gardener, I know the greenest my fingers have ever been was when Chanel Jade was on trend. But, I can certainly do floral fragrances; my pick of the summer’s new fabulously flowery scents are perfect for garden parties and late night roof terrace soirees.

Miller Harris Classics Eaux Parfumees

These ten year anniversary limited editions should be used liberally, as a cologne-like splash rather than a perfume. Each one is a lighter twist on the original with tweaks and additions to the fragrances to make the splashes summery and cooling. My favourite original is Citron Citron; the new infusion incorporates sparkly green notes and hot, peppery Elemi. Citron Citron, Fleur Oriental, Coeur de Fleur and Terre de Bois Parfumees.

£90 (from July), www.millerharris.com.

 Bond No.9 Harrods Rose

New York Perfumery, Bond No.9, is known for naming its fragrances after famous NY neighbourhoods. But in a very British move, Bond No.9 have collaborated with Harrods to create a tribute to the most English of flowers, the rose. White rose, tuberose, narcisuss top the perfume, with a dry down of Cashmere wood.

£90, www. Harrods.com.

Chloe Eau de Fleurs Capucine

Chloe Eau de Fleurs Capucine

Part of a new trio of floral fragrances from Chloe, Capucine is easily my favourite. Capucine is another word for Nasturtium and its pretty, green and intensely floral with notes of bergamot, lemon, rose and jasmine. Again, this is best used liberally as a splash as the formula is less concentrated than traditional perfumes.

£75, www.debenhams.com
