Scent to me

Want to
smell good

you are?
Try these

A

mongst the till receipts and Twix
wrappers (I'd like to say chia bar
wrappers but I'd be lying) in my bag
right now, you'll probably find at least one or
two sachets of 4711's cologne-infused tissues.
Superbly refreshing, they've been a lifesaver
more than once, especially in the summer
months when their ability to counteract an
uncomfortably hot commute makes them
pretty much indispensable.

THE SMELL OF SUCCESS

LEE
KYNASTON

Although a firm
believer that
real beauty comes
from the inside,
Lee sees no
harm in giving the
outside some TLC.

The fragrance itself - a crisp, classic, blend
of rosemary, lavender and citrus - has been
around since 1792; it's just the delivery method
that has shifted with the times. And 4711 aren't
the only company who've realised the way
people wear fragrance is changing. Over the
past few years, a raft of pocket-sized pongs
have popped up in recognition of the fact that
gym bags, office drawers and jacket pockets
are just as likely to house some smelly stuff as
bathroom cabinets.
The popularity of miniature wonders like
Diptyque's superb solid perfume is partly
due to changing lifestyles (increased travel,
festivals and gym memberships have all fuelled
the need for fragrances that are compact,
portable and less likely to break), while aircraft
carry-on restrictions have ensured size does
matter when it comes to scent.
Personally, I just want to smell good if I'm
heading out straight after work. And with the

HAIRY
E XP ERIENCE

Unlike
spray
perfumes,
which can
dry out
skin, solid
ones can
be used on
the hair.
Just warm
a tiny
amount
between
your
palms
and run
through
your do

average eau de toilette lasting on the skin
for between two-five hours, you can bet your
life the stuff I applied in the morning will
have vanished come cocktail happy hour,
making a portable top-up option essential.
This is where miniaturised fragrances
(like the ones featured below) really come
into their own.

MINUSCULE MUSKS
With delivery systems more interesting and
varied than ever (as well as tissues, balms and
rollerballs, there are clever innovations like
Jo Loves' Fragrance Paintbrush, featuring
gel you simply brush onto the skin) and
more unisex options available (all the
examples here are 'scents for sharing'),
there's no excuse for any of us to smell
anything other than amazing.
These pocket perfumes are also living
proof small isn't just beautiful: it can be
supremely practical and smell good, too. B
