Take three new season scents
Petale Noir, €53 (30ml); €77 (50ml) Agent Provocateur, available in selected department stores nationwide
In keeping with the brand's persona, this is a sexy, night-time scent. Don't be put off by its initial strength as it settles down nicely and lasts well into the night.
Fleur de Figuier, €17.50 (30ml); €39.75 (100ml) Roger & Gallet, available in selected pharmacies and Marks & Spencer beauty halls nationwide
You know you're on to a winner when not one but two strangers ask you what perfume you're wearing.
Sweet but not sickly, this got the seal of approval from both sexes.
Flirty Alice, €57.20 (75ml) Vivienne Westwood, limited edition, available at Debenhams and Arnotts
Discreetly citrusy but unquestionably fresh and feminine, it's a beautiful summer scent that you'll want to wear day and night.
