When you think of rosemary, you immediately think of roast lamb and veg, right? It certainly has me dreaming of a slap-up Sunday roast. But what if I said the scent is being used in high-end perfume too? The herbal scent adds a unique touch to a grown-up fragrance, and it has an added bonus. Some studies suggest rosemary helps assist with memory. That means you can indulge in the prettiest rosemary-scented perfume and possibly boost your brain power too!
Issey Miyake's Bleu d'issey Eau Fraiche (£40) features rosemary as the star scent with fresh notes of bergamot and mint, also known for its brain-boosting properties.
Cartier's L'Heure Vertueuse III (£241) contains rosemary, lavender, and thyme for a wild and soothing aroma.
Annick Goutal's Eau D'Hadrien (£112) is a blend of Tunisian rosemary fused with citrus notes that boost alertness.
So, next time you go to spritz on your signature scent, think about what body-boosting herbs your perfume may be holding and plan accordingly!
