Fragrance is a part of our beauty routine where we constantly welcome change.
From summer to autumn, winter and spring, we’ve collected a hoard of perfumes that perfectly align to the flavour and feel of each season.
But we’re welcoming a new mindset of late; one that streamlines the entire experience and allows us to minimise the clutter of our ever-growing collection of perfumes.
Let us introduce you to the concept of transeasonal fragrances.
As the name might suggest, these adaptable scents can confidently work in a variety of settings and seasons.
Featuring mindful blends of ephemeral notes that err on the familiar, while maintaining an innately refreshing and informing experience for the palette, these seven transeasonal scents dictate a new era of olfactory exploration.
