Life bottled: match your perfume to your New Year’s resolution

By Lauren Carbran

Hallelujah, it’s (finally) 2017! Now, let’s get down to business – finding you a new perfume, of course. Does the thought of matching your new scent to your New Year’s resolution make you happy? Yes, us too. So here’s how to do it…

11Your New Year’s resolution: To get fit

Your perfume: Tommy Hilfiger The Girl for her or Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Eau Fraiche for him

The scoop: Think fresh and fun if you want to get sporty this year. You can’t go wrong with The Girl, with its notes of pear and fig, after your workout. For guys, we love L’Eau d’Issey Eau Fraiche, for its marine accord and grapefruit – totally gym-friendly! Hello new you…

22Your New Year’s resolution: To keep healthy

Your perfume: Michael Kors Wonderlust for her or Tom Ford Grey Vetiver for him

The scoop: Most of us are on a health kick right now. And whether or not we stick to it for the rest of the year (someone, hand us a doughnut), we should opt for a healthy scent to keep in the game. Michael Kors Wonderlust is still going strong this year, thanks to its hero smell of almond note mixed with mandarin. And only Tom Ford knows how to combine the super-healthy notes of lemon, grapefruit and basil for a fragrance as cool as Grey Vetiver. Yes, please.

33Your New Year’s resolution: To find love

Your perfume: Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Rosa Excelsa for her or Hugo Boss Boss Bottled Unlimited for him

The scoop: Rose fragrances are in your best interest if you want to find love in 2017, we promise. And it totally helps that roses are a girl’s best friend (fact). Nothing smells more romantic than Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Rosa Excelsa, which was made for you rose addicts, with its notes of African dog rose and Turkish rose – the only weapons you’ll need to find your Prince Charming. Or say hello to Boss Bottled Unlimited, a delightful combo of rose and pineapple. Mmm, now it’s time to mingle…

44Your New Year’s resolution: To travel the world

Your perfume: YSL Mon Paris for her or Davidoff Horizon for him

The scoop: Booked your travels or simply daydreaming about them? Well, whether you’re exploring the UK or going abroad later this year, you’ll want a perfume companion with you (#travelbuddy). If city breaks are your thing, go for YSL Mon Paris, which oozes pear and white musk. And you can’t go anywhere without Davidoff Horizon, a mix of ginger and nutmeg, best worn with hiking boots and a rucksack. Ready, steady, go!
