Our scent destination this month is United Kingdom. Stuffy rose and dusty lavender fragrances are ancient history and the UK is gunning for the top spot as the home of modern perfumery. The niche houses aren’t bound by traditions and have a quirky way of combining the finest ingredients in new, eclectic ways. Anarchy in the UK, indeed. We think the coolest scents come from the UK, and so we’ve curated the very best of the British!
