The scent of a stroll through France

The scent that changes on your skin
Molecule 01 by Escentric Molecules is truly a unique scent. Described as woody and velvety, this unisex scent is smooth and clean and will create a different scent depending on who uses it. The chemistry of the fragrance will change throughout the day, so it’s perfect if you’re looking for a subtle fragrance that adapts to your body. Available here
The scent of minimalism
Not A Perfume by Juliette Has A Gun is the ultimate minimalistic clean fragrance. It’s hypoallergenic so if you’re the kind of girl who doesn’t usually wear perfume, this could be your new favorite. It has only one note, called cetalox, so it’s a pleasing understated clean fragrance. It’s similar to Molecule 01 in that you won’t smell it strongly on yourself, but others around you will be intrigued. Available here

On a muggy, overcast summer’s day when the heat around you is almost unbearable, turn your face up to the sky and smell the air just before it’s about to rain. That’s what Rain by Commodity smells like. That unashamedly fresh scent of the heavens about to open is achieved with water musk and lotus blossom.
