Scent of memories

Missha's new perfume collection, L'eau De Missha, features two distinct scents (both HK$432/30ml). Always Be Mine evokes memories of an early morning floral garden with notes of lilies, orchids and violets. Stay Beside Me is fruitier, and the magnolia notes are intended as a reminder of first love. Available at Missha counters.

You nose it makes scents

GUCCI, CHANEL, Britney, Paris, J.Lo, Ferrari, Hermes. The list of companies and celebrities with their name on a fragrance seems endless. And although the good stuff has increased in price, sales are on the rise.

Scent of attraction

Vanilla, musk and apple pie ... the right fragrance will wrap you in an aura of sensuality

Ah, summer, the season of smelly feet and pungent body odours. In this heat you'll be hard-pressed to find a woman who gets off on the au naturel man. Trust me, you are far better off with a dash of Calvin.

Language point

To help prevent cracks as well, apply an alcohol- and perfume-free moisturising lotion after bathing.

Note the hyphenation and spacing in 'an alcohol- and perfume-free moisturising lotion'. What it actually means is 'an alcohol-free and perfume-free moisturising lotion'.
