Even if you’re looking at your other half through a screen, it’s good to feel good. We love Le Labo’s soulful, well thought out fragrances, and Jasmine 17 is gorgeous to wear, even if it’s just you and the postman who get’s to smell it for now! It was created as a modern alternative to the old-fashioned traditional floral signatures, and its short formula gives it such a distinctive character that once you wear it, you’ll never forget it. A unique floral impact whose sensuality and lure is amplified by a majestically harmonious chord of musk, sandalwood and vanilla.

The Thames washes by, all swish and shimmer. But then it seems to stop. The air is still too, all of London’s claustrophobic clamour and commotion pausing, just for a moment, to admire the magic of this mystical landscape above.”
