Shoes create an imprint and lipstick makes a mark, but when it comes to lasting impressions, nothing does the job quite like scent. That’s why we place so much importance on choosing one that embodies ‘us’.

Now, let’s get something straight. We’re not talking about bottling our innate awkwardness and occasional tendency to snort when we laugh. No, when it comes to fragrance, we’re searching for a classy array of carefully composed notes that can evoke an effortlessly sophisticated version of ourselves – the ‘us’ that others can’t help but admire.

Who better than queen of chic Sarah Jessica Parker to guide us on this scented mission? SJP’s signature fragrance, Lovely, £22 for 150ml EDP , is pure femininity and style, just like her (and perhaps us, too?). Let’s lean in closer.

The scent

Sweet citrus notes pierce a clean, powdery accord above a blissful swirl of musks, woods and balmy white amber in this elegant fragrance.

The style

Spritz onto pulse points – your wrists, the base of your throat, behind your ears, inside your elbows, even behind your knees – then let it sit. The natural warmth of your skin will help the scent emanate throughout the day. Top tip: don’t be tempted to rub those wrists together as this will alter the structure of the scent.

To sample a spritz of this must-sniff scent, visit the Sarah Jessica Parker stand at the GLAMOUR Beauty Festival in Manchester from 2-3 November. Your new signature fragrance awaits.
