Bottega Veneta Illusione For Her, $465, and For Him, $430
A balance of freshness and soft sensuality. For Her, with its bergamot, orange blossom, fig, olive wood and tonka bean is a woody-floral that’s crisp and feminine. For Him is a woody-citrus scent comprising lemon, woody fir balsam, white cedarwood, vetiver and tonka bean – the overall effect is a modern and enigmatic scent you’d want to wear yourself.

Tiffany & Co. Tiffany & Love For Her EDP, $180-$245, and For Him EDT, $125-$170
Both are fresh and uplifting in it own way. Hers: crisp blue basil and grapefruit, with a heart of neroli, and a woody base of blue sequoia, vetiver and cedarwood. His: a burst of ginger, mandarin and cardamom oils, before revealing a woody heart of juniper and cypress, then a dry-down of sandalwood, vetiver and blue sequoia.
