From the boggling array of top notch drops at WORLD to the happy-in-a-bottle scents at Karen Walker, the options are endless.

Britomart is a haven for luxury scents and Christmas is the time to give ‘em. We’d be here forever if we listed all our favourites but here are six great summer smells we’d be happy to find in our stocking…

It’s called Hi There and it somehow smells like that too: happy, friendly, fresh, summery. Perfect. Available from Karen Walker $135.00.


Comme des Garcons do fragrance like they do everything else; like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. This is no exception: Floriental is what floral can only be in its wildest imagination. Incredible. Available from FABRIC $155.00.

There is no scent like this scent for literally capturing summer in one sniff: think coconut oil, fresh air, clean linen… it’s dreamy. Available from Bobbi Brown $130.00 as part of a gift set.

Jo Malone London do a special limited edition scent every Christmas and they have outdone themselves with this one, the Orange Bitters cologne – it’s exquisite. Be very, very quick. Available at Jo Malone London for $228.

Love in Black by Creed, created by Jackie O especially, to wear to her husband JFK’s funeral. Possibly the most heartbreakingly romantic gift on the planet. Boyfriends take note. Available from WORLD, $399.00.

It’s been said that a bottle of CHANEL No 5 is sold every thirty seconds. Impossible to beat? Apparently not – CHANEL’s No 5 L’eau is their new version, released this year and – dare we say it – better than the OG. Available in 50ml $197.00 and 100ml $281.00.
