4. Rodin Olio Lusso
$170 from rodinoliolusso.com
Classic spicy geranium, with notes of jasmine grandiflora, ylang-ylang, and orris are at the heart of this refreshing eau de toilette. For Linda, it’s evocative of the 1970s when she wore fresh and breezy perfumes, and spent time at the beach. The base notes of sandal and patchouli provide a musky dry down and allow RODIN 3 to linger with a touch of nostalgia.
5. Grace By Grace Coddington
$175 from thisisfabric.com
In collaboration with Comme des Garçons Parfum, Adrian Joffe and Grace Coddington have united to create Grace’s first fragrance, Grace by Grace Coddington. A true floral scent with a heart of Moroccan rose.
6. Chakra Perfume / Nova
$93.00 from Simon James Concept Store
Founder of NOVA, Julia Zangrilli, is a self-taught perfumer with certification in raw materials from the Grasse Institute of Perfumery. Chakra, her signature scent, is a unisex fragrance with Moroccan and Bulgarian rose that is deepened by base notes of tobacco, leather and layers of precious musk and wood.
