We round up seven of our favourite fragrances perfect for balmy nights on patios, walks on the beach and even fresh scents to give you a spring in your step (despite a sticky central line carriage in the morning)…


Bronze Goddess is the type of fragrance that Jennifer Lopez would be wearing with beachy waves and glowing skin in one of her music videos. A sensuous blend of warm amber, bergamot, vanilla and creamy coconut results in a blend that’ll make you feel that bit closer to goddess status.
