Skincare and scents: 8 top picks for the summer

Smell ravishing in the season’s new fragrances - plus: the latest skincare collections are moisturising and refreshingly light for the summer

Modern Princess is exactly what it sounds like – the upbeat, spirited fragrance is redolent of fruity apple and red currant notes, balanced with sensual jasmine, white musk and vanilla orchid.

The Star Magnolia fragrance celebrates flirtatious femininity to its fullest with bright, spirited notes of magnolia leaf, star magnolia, orange blossom, lemon, ginger and shiso.

Sophisticated gents will be happy to hear that Mr Burberry is now available in an eau de parfum as well as an eau de toilette. The woody scent, with notes of tarragon, cinnamon, amber and vetiver, excels as a more intense EDP.

The limited edition Muguet 2017 – the third interpretation of Thierry Wasser’s
Muguet scent – is housed in a frosted bottle adorned by Atelier Bizet. The Parisian maison created a delicate floral ornament studded with pearls and crystals for the perfume house.

The Concentrate is now available in a 15ml travel size, just in time for your holiday. The popular formula, which has the renowned Miracle Broth, is known for its protective and restorative qualities, ideal for tired or ageing skin.

Take your skin on an exotic holiday with the Deeply Purifying Mask with Tropical Resins. The purifying formula is especially effective on blemished skin, eliminating impurities and improving skin quality and softness.

The Blanc Expert collection, ideal for those who live in an urban environment, has expanded to include the Radiance 5 Essence. The lightweight concentrate is quickly absorbed and leaves skin hydrated, luminous and even in tone.

The edgy black Le Soin Noir Leger is a new interpretation of the brand’s famous black cream. The new gel-cream is lightweight and delicate, but incredibly moisturising; skin looks visibly smoother and more supple upon application.
