Play up your personality with the latest fragrance offerings – from soft, sweet florals to fresh citrus spritzes


Lace and pastels are staples in your wardrobe and you can’t go past a full-circle midi skirt. You’re a girly girl and proud of it, never leaving the house without a spritz or two of subtly sweet or lightly powdered perfume. Look for notes of rose, vanilla, bergamot and Lily of the Valley in your next signature scent.
