    Bluebell by Penhaligon's

    So sweet! Makes you smile ...it's so audaciously simple and charming. Like walking through a carpet of spring bluebells in a wood. Light, femminine, moist.

    Heliotrope by Etro

    Sweet, precious and delicious. A muted floral with vanilla marzipan, dry down is warm and bready. Subtle, distinctive and just plain lovely.

    Messe de Minuit by Etro

    If you like something with a story to tell this one's as old as the hills. I love it. I once stumbled into a dark ancient neglected basillica in Venice which smelled just like this.
    Described by my friend as "afternoon on a musty old sofa with a dirty priest", so obviously not for everyone.

    Cuir de Russie by Creed

    Astonishing and unforgettable. Unique in its boldness and complexity. Unquestionably distinguished yet brazenly sexual. Like Cary Grants saddle after he's been out riding all day. Power, money and sex. Reckon you can pull it off? Only for the select few.

    Pour Un Homme by Caron

    A few chords in perfect harmony have an effect which is greater than the sum of its parts. Like a bright, minimally furnished room with classic pieces perfectly spaced. A great leveller, always puts me on an even keel. In the morning it's rousing. In the daytime it's efficient. In the evening it's cultured and civilised. At bedtime it's soporific. Timeless. Humanist.

    Odeur 53 by Comme des Garçons

    One of my absolute favourites. So fresh and clean and audaciously synthetic. Expansive and unstructured. Smells a bit like a brand new car or even bread dough, but very different on everyone. White noise, airports, bubble wrap. Bizzare, futuristic and innovative. Very subtle - impossible to put too much on.
