Everybody loves a round-up, right?
Popped these up on Insta when it was still actually 2017 but hey, I’m running on summer holiday time. Not calling these the best of the year, just some of my favourite wears…
Summer Saviours1. Penhaligon’s Savoy Steam
For its dapper, gender-bending, boater-hat wearing steamy turkish rose.
2. Etat Libre d’Orange You or Someone Like You
Minty-fresh floral, like air-con on your wrist.
3. Derek Lam 10 Crosby Rain Day
Summer sun-showers on sidewalks.
1. Helmut Lang Cuiron
Androgynous 90’s leather to render any undone outfit intentional.
2. Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume
Wins for its ironic compliment garnering, and magic layering powers.
3. Gucci Bloom
For evening, because it makes a smudged lip and inability to resist glittery things seem legit.
1. Byredo Velvet Haze
From sweaty skin to angel clouds, just ridiculously good.
2. Goldfield & Banks Wood Infusion
An Australian Oud, rich but relaxed, a future classic.
3. The Ayu Vala
Grounding, yet ethereal. For days when calm is hard to find.
