As part of my 10 things for 10 years of The Candy Perfume Boy, I’m taking a look back at 10 perfumes from the last decade that are important to me. They might be perfumes of olfactory importance (the modern classics), or perfumes with sentimental value, or even just perfumes that I love to wear because they smell damn good. I’m doing this over two IGTV videos. Part One went live last week and you can check out Part Two over on my instagram or embedded below the jump.
I’ve started a new series of Reels over on instagram, in which I intend to take you around some of my favourite places to shop for perfume in London. My first destination is Perfumer H. Located on Crawford Street in the heart of Marylebone, Perfume H is a wonderful, hidden-gem of a boutique created by perfumer Lyn Harris (formerly of Miller Harris) with an intriguing concept. Head to my instagram to watch the Reel and join me on my tour of Perfumer H, or watch it below the jump. I smell ya later at the next destination!
You may have heard/seen me talking about something called #EscentualScents a lot recently and you may have wondered ‘what the heck is that all about?’ Well, to answer that very question I have created a Reel over on instagram that explains the concept in full. You can check it out on my instagram profile here, or embedded below the jump! For more details on #EscentualScents click here.
We’re headed into summer and if your fragrance wardrobe needs a bit of a seasonal refresh, I’ve got you covered. The vibe of the season is fresh, tropical and beachy and in my latest IGTV video, I’ve picked six scents (some classic, some new) that bring you all of the olfactory refreshment you need. These are the six scents you need to be wearing this summer!

This week’s IGTV is actually a two-parter. I had so many new launches to share for May that I’ve split them over two videos. Part one is live today and features five fragrances, all of which feel a bit summery in tone. Expect gorgeousness from CHANEL, bergamot beauty from Acqua di Parma, and scantily-clad cabana boys from MUGLER (of course). To check out the video, head over to my instagram, or click below the jump.
This week’s IGTV is all about delectable, delicious gourmand fragrances, but not your typical, sickly sweet high street gourmands, no, these are something more upmarket. These are some seriously luxurious gourmands that will level up your wardrobe to new heights. Expect booze-soaked vanilla, rose-flavoured marshmallows, and much, much, more.

Thank the heavens that winter is over – and what a winter. We went back into lockdown here (our third) in December, just before Christmas, and we’re still in it. Like many others, I’ve found this last lockdown much harder. I’ve taken solace and comfort in perfume, as always, so in my latest IGTV video I take a look back at the scents I wore in Winter 2020/21. Check it out by clicking here or via the embedded video below the jump!
In my latest IGTV video, I have a quick round-up of perfumes that are super cuddly, cozy and warming – they are my top picks as winter warmers. Featuring enveloping and glowing scents from CHANEL, By Kilian, Comme des Garçons, this edit brings you a scented selection to help fight the cold.

In this week’s IGTV video I’m taking a look at some new launches that have piqued my curiosity in over the last month or so. They include a deliciously zesty lavender from Parle Moi de Parfum, a beautiful reimagining of Cartier’s La Panthere, and something reminiscent of Nº19 – oh and much more, of course. Watch the full video below the jump!
It’s Monday, which means it’s time for another IGTV video! This week I’m taking a look at spooky, terrifying and creepy scents for Halloween. These are wild and wacky fragrances with a dark and devilish side. Enjoy the video below the jump, or you can watch directly on instagram.
