Gabriela Sabatini

Gabriela Sabatini is a former professional tennis player from Argentina. She was one of the leading players on the women's circuit in the late-1980's and early 1990's. Sabatini launched her own perfume, simply named Gabriela Sabatini, in 1989. Since retiring from competitive tennis, she has launched further perfume lines. In 1992, a red orange fiery rose was named the "Gabriela Sabatini Rose" in her honour.


Effortless contemporary sportswear classics determines the style and ethos of Gant fragrances. Each Gant fragrance for men and women is a complete fresh experience that sits as a second skin and blends to create easy chic.


Jean Paul Gaultier is an exuberant designer that creates his own fashion and offers a wardrobe of possibilities. His fashion offers a distinct way of being, to enable you to be proud to be who you are and his perfumes are an extension of this ethos, offering the wearer the ability to create their own form of personal style. Jean Paul Gaultier idolises perfumes and fragrances as the first garment that we wear on our skin and his fragrances are created to reveal the sensuality of the body and skin.

Geoffrey Beene

Fresh and energising Geoffrey Beane perfumes and aftershaves are an invigorating fragrance collection and each aims to be a refreshment for the mind and spirit.


Ghost perfumes and aftershaves offer a natural way of being and aim to empower the wearer into becoming and feeling a whistful and relaxed sense of themselves and their natural beauty. Each Ghost fragrance is a soft sensual expression of masculinity or femininity and enhances the softer side of being, with gentle nature enspired blends of blooms, grasses and woods.

Gianfranco Ferre

Sophisticated and versitile Gianfranco Ferre fragrances have been an exclusive and exquisite find since their launch in 1980. Each Gianfranco Ferre fragrance reflects the mood and fashion focus at the time of its launch and each one is blended with such finesse that they have managed to transcend generations and hold their own in the rapidly developing fragrance market.


From his first collection in 1984, Romeo Gigli brought a new look to Italian fashion, replacing its tailored, colourful traditions with a subtle colour range and fluid garments which would be widely influential. Often made of stretch fabrics, his clothes gently draped the body in a classical sense, but were thoroughly modern in treatment in the manner and angles at which they fasten or attach, or in their unexpected exaggerated shapes. His fragrances are an extension of this ethos and are unusual and unpredictable, a very modern statement that captivates and invigorates the mind.


Givenchy's fragrances are as precious as Givenchy's incredibly beautiful couture—with seemingly personalized formulas that are modern in innovation and high in performance. Givenchy Perfume and Aftershaves are a blend of French-style and elegance with American-style spontaneity, plus a touch of something very chic, very irresistible, and very Givenchy.


Parfums Gres have an unusual collection of fragrances that have an established and firm following. Try their fresh, elegant and strong fragrance Cabotine for something just that little bit different.

This is the extract or extrait of a fragrance and represents the scent in its purest form. This often creates a smooth and round texture, which is hard to achieve with the dilution represented in the other concentrations of fragrance.
Eau de Parfum or EDP is one of the most popular forms of fragrance. Eau de Parfum contains between seven to fourteen per cent of fragrance oils and perfume elixirs and is the second strongest, and longest lasting means of wearing a fine fragrance.
Eau de Toilette or EDT is fast becoming the most common means of wearing a fragrance or perfume. EDT’s are not as highly concentrated in oils and elixirs as an EDP or Perfume would be and contain one to three per cent of fragrance oils. This impacts the ability of the fragrance to last and around eighty percent of the oils in an EDT fragrance will evaporate within three hours of application.
Eau de Cologne’s or EDC’s were first popularised by Napoleon. These fragrances are often constructed in a different manner to the traditional French Model and are formulated in one single burst. As a result of this process, EDC’s or Eau de Colognes last the least amount of time on the skin and can dissolve within a couple of hours. EDC’s should be worn as a invigorating spray.
