With the pandemic, testing fragrances has become much harder. Many of us cannot go to shops to test perfumes (or understandably, we do not want to) and even if we do go into a shop, getting hold of a perfume tester isn’t easy. There are a lot of barriers in the way and at Escentual, we want to make it so much easier for people to explore our range of fragrances. So, enter #EscentualScents – a monthly discovery box (curated by yours truly) that you can purchase to explore the world of fragrance. We are so excited!

July’s box – Solar – is now on sale (until 05 July 2021).

In my Escentual this week, I’m continuing my exploration of the fragrance families. The latest stop on the journey is aromatic fragrances. This genre focuses on herbaceous notes and overlaps with the worlds of green and fougere, usually with a drier, more herbal vibe. I’m a big fan of the genre and you can find out all about it (and discover some beautiful aromatic scents) all over at Escentual. Click here to read.

In my latest Escentual column I talk about the Warm fragrance family. This is a new word we are using in place of ‘Oriental’, because it is outdated and no longer fit for purpose (plus it tells you nothing about the fragrances within the family). So if you want to learn about warm ambers, warm florals, warm spices and warm resins, click here to read my column and find out.

June’s box – New Launches – is now on sale.

We’re kicking off a new series on Escentual – it’s called ‘My Life in Perfume’ and in it, we ask people to share the perfumes they have worn throughout their life, from their first perfume, to the perfumes that opened their eyes to what perfumery can be. The first person featured in the series is……me! I share the fragrances that have shaped my life, from my very first loves, to the fragrances I am loving right now (there are a few embarrassing photos thrown in for good measure too). Check it out by clicking here!
