5 Sexy scents for summerMeet your next scent: it’s complex and sultry, with a heavenly rose base.

If rose notes make you think of granny, you’d better reconsider. Here’s why we – and the world’s top perfumers – are loving roses more than ever.

1 They’re precious 

It takes 30 000 rose petals (which are picked in the early morning to preserve the scent) to make 30g of essential oil.

2 They highlight other notes

3 They’re luxurious, but discreet

Below you’ll find five fragrances will have you coming up roses this season.
