How do you find the perfect perfume?

Gabrielle Chanel Gabrielle Chanel


"'Where should one use perfume?' a young woman asked. 

‘Wherever one wants to be kissed,' I said."

-         Gabrielle Chanel

If you’re planning a summer getaway, don’t leave without packing a beautiful scent. To help make sure you’re wearing the right fragrance at your chosen destination, we found you nine of our most memorable eau de parfums are eau de toilettes. Because a woman should never travel without her perfume. 

Keep reading for nine dreamy summer destinations, and their perfectly-matched scent vignettes.


WHERE… A low-lit back room in a Paris discotheque


Scent Vignette JONES Spring 2017 Image


While… Donna Summer is singing “Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien” but it’s sparklier than Edith’s version. She’s being hand fed strawberries, raspberries and pears and wearing peonies and jasmine in her hair. Temptation is a hell of a drug.

Fragrance…YVES SAINT LAURENT | Mon Paris EDT 50ml

Where… Grünerløkka, Norway.


Scent Vignettes JONES Spring 2017 Image


While… You’re hailing a cab after a new friend’s gathering, where all night they played Oslo-disco – a Norwegian subgenre of electronic music that leaves a cosmic trail and spreads, juicily, like a chewed-on citrus Starburst. On the drive home the beat still warms you like worn-to-death cashmere.

Fragrance… THIERRY MUGLER | Alien Eau Sublime EDT 60mL

THIERRY MUGLER Alien Eau Sublime EDT 60mL THIERRY MUGLER Alien Eau Sublime EDT 60mL SHOP NOW


Where… A grassy field.


Scent Vignettes JONES Spring 2017 Image


While… A glorious glare, a patch of white petals in bloom, each one stretching tall to bask in the sunlight. Remember your first crush and the butterflies that flickered inside you. Close your eyes and breathe in the gardenia and jasmine. Youth doesn’t ever have to fade.

Fragrance… MARC JACOBS | Daisy White Edt 100ml

Where... Home.

Scent Vignettes JONES Spring 2017 Image


While… Potent tuberose wafts into the room like an ancient aphrodisiac. The air is sticky with syrupy ylang-ylang and, then, full and earthy with patchouli. It’s barely dawn but you’ve been awake for hours.

Fragrance… PRADA | LA FEMME PRADA EDP INTENSE 100ML

PRADA LA FEMME PRADA EDP INTENSE 100ML PRADA LA FEMME PRADA EDP INTENSE 100ML SHOP NOW


Where... In transit.

Scent Vignettes JONES Spring 2017 Image


While… A sophisticate’s sense of efficiency says everything you need is at the other end. Upon arrival, you bask in the lily of the valley and patchouli-esque akigalawood accords wafting through the cobblestone laneways, and listen to the crystalline clink of champagne glasses.

Fragrance… MIU MIU | Miu Miu Eau de Parfum 100ml

MIU MIU Miu Miu Eau de Parfum 100m MIU MIU Miu Miu Eau de Parfum 100m SHOP NOW

Where… Park Avenue, NYC.
Scent Vignettes JONES Spring 2017 Image


While… You pass by an exquisitely groomed woman, who is clearly from an era before reality television. She leaves behind a clean, old-money bouquet of freesia, bergamot and lavender.

Fragrance… TORY BURCH | Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Rose Edp 100ml

TORY BURCH Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Rose Edp 100ml TORY BURCH Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Rose Edp 100ml SHOP NOW


Where… Blue Mountains, wet season. 

Scent Vignettes JONES Spring 2017 Image


While… Luxurious fungi grow among the ancient pine forests. The ground is damp; woody English oaks and Himalayan cedars tower over greenery below. Mornings are spent hunting for earth-grown delicacies, while nights require an open fire and roasted hazelnuts. A most elegant escape.

Fragrance… JO MALONE LONDON | English Oak & Hazelnut Cologne 100ml

JO MALONE LONDON English Oak & Hazelnut Cologne 100ml JO MALONE LONDON English Oak & Hazelnut Cologne 100ml SHOP NOW


Where… London, the Tate Britain. 

Scent Vignettes JONES Spring 2017 Image


While… Art hangs on grand walls, declaring that love is many things: opaque and syrupy, a mix of cherry blossom nectar, tonka bean, vanilla and amaretto; it’s a bouquet of roses; it’s a thing worth fighting for; it’s fleeting.

Fragrance… AMOUAGE | AMOUAGE BLOSSOM LOVE EDP

AMOUAGE AMOUAGE BLOSSOM LOVE EDP AMOUAGE AMOUAGE BLOSSOM LOVE EDP SHOP NOW


Where… Berlin, 1982.


Gabrielle Chanel Gabrielle Chanel


While… The audacity of the rebellious persists. Their effortlessness, their languorous, bored sighs, and the chic weightlessness of a life lived on the line. Like Gabrielle Chanel herself, revolution appears like a flash of white flowers, bottled cool.
