Scents & Sensibility: 4 British Fragrances Worth Trying

British Fragrance Buys

1. Burberry Brit Summer ($67). A staple British brand’s summer rendition is available for you and your man. With notes of crisp green almond, white peony, fresh lime and icy pear, bottled in the iconic Burberry check pattern, this is the perfect addition to your fragrance closet that holds a fresh and playful scent that will get you through the dog days of summer.
2. Jo Malone Plum Blossom ($55 or $110). Words can’t express just how obsessed I am with this floral woody musk scent. With top notes of fresh notes and plum as well as floral and green notes, this leaves an alluring scent of sandalwood and white musk. I’ll take two!
3. Jimmy Choo Shimmering Body Oil ($44). Sometimes a fragrance body oil works just as well as a spritz of perfume (not to mention, it won’t break the bank). The London-based designer kicks it up a notch with this “dry touch” formula. Apply on pulse points (think wrists, inner elbows, behind the knees) for a sensual scent of sweet almond, hazelnut, argan and macadamia oils.
4. Stella McCartney ‘Stella’ ($92). For the organic-obsessed, Stella McCartney’s Eau de Parfum only uses the best natural materials while protecting the natural life force of plants. Top notes include rose, peony flower, mandarin, rose absolute, amber. Basically, sweet, sweet seduction. On a budget? Try the travel size ‘Stella’ rollerball perfume for only $20.
