An uplifting fragrance

A scent inspired by and created with His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, Penhaligon’s Highgrove Bouquet EDP is a tribute to the magnificently fragrant summers at Highgrove Gardens, the home of HRH and Camilla.

With top notes of geranium, lavender and hyacinth, the fragrance is complemented with middle notes of weeping lime headspace, French mimosa and tuberose, with base notes of cedarwood, orris fusion and musks.

A fragrance that is as uplifting as it is sun-filled and radiant, this floral woody, gender-neutral fragrance features hyacinth in its top notes, a scent often associated with happiness and positive emotions.

Known to uplift the mood and re-energise its surroundings, hyacinth promotes a sense of calm, renewal and vitality, making Highgrove Bouquet the perfect pick-me-up.

Express yourself

Paco Rabanne’s Lady Million Royal EDP was designed to capture the essence of challenging femininity, to live daringly, to embody the idea of a woman who rules freely and expresses herself without constraints.

Its top notes are pomegranate and mandarin while the middle notes are made up of orange blossom, jasmine and tuberose. Its base notes are cashmeran, patchouli and musk.

The eau de parfum’s top notes of pomegranate are fruity and slightly tart, emanating an aroma that is known to help stimulate creativity and inspire a sense of enthusiasm.

These are complemented by mandarin, which has energising properties, and jasmine, known to have an uplifting effect.

Alluring charm

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Scandal Le Parfum for Her is a fragrance that promises to ignite your senses and leave you spellbound.

Radiant jasmine in its middle notes, its top notes of salted caramel caress the sweetness of sensual black vanilla at its base.

The fragrance’s curved bottle in red is a symbol of passion, exuding the allure of an incandescent flame, while its gold cap, adorned with the iconic pair of legs, adds an air of sophistication and playfulness.
