What Penhaligon’s charges in price it makes up for in character. A case in point? Vaara, new in at Brown Thomas, Dublin.

From €110 for 50ml, this is an Indian-inspired spritz that combines – of all bonkers ingredients to put in a fragrance – quince, carrot and coriander seeds as well as your more expected florals in the form of Bulgarian and Moroccan rose compounds plus some woods and resins in the base.

Sounds intriguing.

I shall be heading BT-wards for a spritz. You?
