Lime, Basil & Mandarin has become one of the great modern classic fragrances, loved and worn and treasured by countless women (and men). And that includes us – happy to count ourselves among the long-term fans of the zesty, breezy, quintessential Cologne-y scent, which has such a wonderful cooling lime twist.

Unusually, this is one of the very few scents in our lives that we’re happy to smell as a candle as well as wear on the skin.

On which note, we couldn’t be happier to be veiling ourselves in the new body oil version – a wonderful spritzable mist of those citrus and herbal notes, which has done double-duty during the recent hot weather: just smelling the scent itself is like sipping a long, cool drink of water, while the lightweight oil texture is great for countering the dryness of arms and legs that have experienced first-hand (or first-limb) plenty of the sun’s drying action, lately.

It’s also a great way to scent hair, adding a touch of condition – but without weighing it down or making it greasy.

The ultimate summer spritzer – but one which we reckon will be bringing a little ray of sunshine into darker days, later in the year.
