# 1 Fleur d’Osmanthus
The Fleur D’Osmanthus Fragrant Water has fast become my go-to.
When it comes to fragrances I usually tend to go for more warmer, earthy notes, however – there’s something about this sugary-sweet fragrance that I just can’t get enough of; it’s the ultimate pick me up!
Whether I’m heading to work or going out for cocktails, it completes my outfit (and day!) instantly making me feel uplifted and happy thanks to its invigorating scent – I especially love the grapefruit and mandarin notes.
If I could sum this fragrance up in three words they would be ‘fun, flirty and floral’. I love how feminine I feel when I wear this fragrance – it keeps me coming back for more!
#2 Eau des Bienfaits
I haven’t got any holidays booked but Roger & Gallet’s Eau Des Bienfaits spray certainly makes me feel like I’m away in Italy.
Bienfaits exudes warmth and happiness right from the start, from its orange ombre bottle to the citrusy fresh notes of blood orange and lemon. Roger & Gallet’s Fragrant Water can be sprayed all over as a refreshing body mist and contains essential oils which not only smell amazing but also work to hydrate and soften the skin too. Two in one – it’s a win-win!
For me, it’s the ultimate summer fragrance, and a dressing table essential.
Roger and Gallet have hit the perfect scent with the combination they have put together in Bois d’Orange; it’s gentle to the skin and very subtle for the ideal day fragrance. Its fruity citrus range makes it perfect for those who will prefer something different and very special.
I fell in love with the Bois d’Orange Fresh Fragrant Water Spray as soon as I smelled it. It is unlike any other perfume I have ever tried before. It is fresh, unique and perfect for all seasons.
If I can give a tip: the best way to apply it is using the Fragrant Water in combination with the Bois d’Orange Body Lotion or with the Perfumed Body Cream. This way you will achieve a prolonged fragrant trail even after a busy day of work. After showering, apply the cream or lotion to damp skin, then spritz the Bois d’Orange perfume on your pressure points (wrists, elbows, shoulders, the collarbones) to lock the fragrance in for longer.
#4 Feuille de Figuier
I’m relatively new to Roger & Gallet fragrances but my favourite at the moment is Feuille De Figuier, a green figgy scent that’s perfect for this time of year. To me, it evokes memories of Mediterranean holidays and days in the sun. It’s citrusy and fresh when you first spray and as it warms and mellows, a moreish green fig leaf and neroli comes into play, drying down to a sensual cedar.
A beautiful and unique scent that you’ll want to wear all the time, it will definitely have everyone asking what you are wearing!
#5 Sublime Or
There is simply nothing better than the smell of summer! Bois d’Orange Eau Sublime Or instantly transports you to your favourite destination abroad and gives you that warm feeling. I have fallen in love with this fragrance not just for its addictive citrus and vanilla smell, but for its gorgeous shimmer which leaves a camera-ready golden sheen on your skin. It’s perfect if you’re looking to fake a post-holiday glow!
Sublime Or has been my go-to for summer and I love it because it’s so long-lasting on my skin – one spray will have you addicted!
#6 Fleur de Figuier
Fleur de Figuier is sweet fragrance – but definitely not sickly. It’s a creamy, even milky kind of sweet, and I find it has this deep spark in the base notes that just ignites some long-forgotten memory of familiarity. It’s the perfect scent for the summer: warm, inviting and not at all cloying. It’s a lasting fragrance that you can layer up for an evening out. I love it so much I even use the matching soap and hand cream!
Good news for me and all of the men who like to smell fresh and clean without trying too hard, L’Homme is that little bit of affordable luxury that will never disappoint. I’d describe L’Homme just as I would a distinctive cologne; it’s a complete classic that will never go out of fashion. I carry this one around in my gym bag as its refreshing blend of lemon, mint and deep woods do a great job at invigorating me after a big session!
#8 Neroli Facetie
Beautiful fragrance and accessibility can sometimes feel mutually exclusive, however, Roger & Gallet are a goldmine of delicately crafted scents that embody the French art de vivre.
The Neroli Facetie Extrait de Cologne was love at first sniff – it smells like an unashamed celebration of life, like bottled joy. Entwining a heady neroli bouquet with subtle undertones of honey and a sprinkle of saltiness, it has the hard to pin down quality of being invigorating, yet simultaneously calming. It has a semi-sweet freshness grounded in vetiver and cedarwood that make for a composition that is restorative to wear and easy to go back to. I’m even eyeing the 500ml bottle that is reminiscent of a retro spirit decanter for an extra touch of bougie on my dressing table.
