    Along with everything else we’ll be buying this summer that is so reminiscent of the 1970s, the woody, spicy and sexy scents of this decade are now totally on trend and totally on our wish list for the new season.

    If you want to make sure you are channeling the archetypal ‘70s siren, a heady and seductive scent is a must. Unsure where to start with your new collection? You can’t go wrong with the iconic L’air De Rein by Miller Harris. Made for the captivating actress and singer, Jane Birkin, L’air De Rein is an ‘evocative expression of the starlet’s life and style’. That means it’s rich and musky, alluring and seductive – everything you need to create your own iconic aura.

    For dark and dreamy nights, choose La Nuit de Bohème by Anna Sui. Mysterious, sensual and a little bit magical, you can release your inner bohemian with this romantic fragrance. Citrus notes are blended with cedar, Haitian vanilla-orchid, Indonesian patchouli and golden amber resin to create a uniquely seductive scent.

    Or for something a little more easy going that you can wear every day, the Divin’Enfant by Etat Libre d’Orange should be your go-to fragrance. Touted as the best kept secret in the beauty world, this unisex scent is compelling and subtle – perfect for creating a little of the intrigue of a ‘70s ingénue.

    If you can’t decide on one fragrance, why not have three? The Wood Fragrances from Miller Harris are rich, spicy and evocative: All you expect from this new trend.
