Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino is about to create an even bigger splash.

Regular followers of this blog will know that I’m a. a big fan of Tom Ford fragrances (esp his Private Blend Oud Wood which is one of my favourite scents of all time) and b. an equally big fan of his gobsmacking gorgeous Neroli Portofino collection.

With its sparkling blend of citrus, floral and amber notes Neroil Portofino has always been the perfect fragrance for summer and from May you’ll be able to live out the infamous ‘splashing’ adverts for real with the introduction of the Neroli Portofino Eau Fraiche Body Splash.

Perfect if you like layering your fragrances, it comes in a generous 236ml sized bottle and is designed to be splashed all over (within reason). For me, it’s this summer’s must-have product.

Available from May priced £85 for 236ml body splash. For stockists call 0870 034 2566

Does size matter? It certainly does when it comes to the new DKNY Men Summer fragrance.

Never let it be said size doesn’t matter – even in the fluffy world of fragrance. I mean, what about this whopper from DKNY? Yes, folks, the bottle for DKNY for Men Summer is an impressive 9″ tall, with a girth of nealry 2″ across its widest point. In fairness, this does raise a few stability issues but it’s still a pretty striking addition to your bathroom shelf or bedroom dressing table.

The fragrance itself is a fresh, citrusy but slightly spicy blend of grapefruit, Yuzu (an oriental citrus fruit), white pepper, geranium and cedar but who cares when there’s such skyscraping subtlety to admire?

DKNY MEN Summer will be available from  4th March, exclusively to The Perfume Shop, priced £34 for 100ml eau de toilette.
