Summer Splash

Scent Splash

There’s nothing quite like a refreshingly light splash of well, splash, to cut through the summer-in-the-city heat and humidity. More subtle than a spritz of eau de parfum but subtle enough that you can repeatedly daub yourself throughout the day without fear of overpowering, these are our picks for the summer.

Combining aromatic notes with invigorating bergamot and zesty citric lime, L’Occitane’s Eau Captivante is a fresh-from-the-shower, energising cologne. Although it’s a male scent, there’s a certain element of that clean-man smell that just works on warm female skin.

The original 4711 may well be over 200 years old, but perfectly capturing the scent of summer, its Wonder Water title still holds true. With mood-boosting notes of bergamot, lemon and orange over a base of Neroli and lavender, the 4711 cologne is the original skin quenching, freshening splash.

The substantial gold-dipped bottle, the pure simplicity of the design and that mediterranean-sea in-the-height-of-summer turquoise shade, Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino Body Splash quite simply oozes luxury. It also smells rather delicious. An invigorating blend of floral, citrus and amber notes, this is summer, bottled.

As Henry Cooper used to say…”Splash it on all over…”
