Jasper Conran

Jasper Conran's innovative simplicity is evident in his clean and sophisticated fragrance range for men and women. Each Jasper Conran Perfume and Fragrance is a unique and sensual fresh scent that washes over the skin and invigorates the senses into a sense of modern simplicity.

Jean Patou

Jean Patou revolutionized fashion and couture has never looked back since. Jean Patou was the inventor of sportswear, designing the first cardigan, the first tennis skirt, and the first knit bathing suit. Jean Patou was also the first couturier to use his initials as a stylistic motif. After the 1929 stock market crash, most of his clients could not afford his couture designs, yet he had the incredible daring to launch Joy, the "costliest perfume in the world" -- a gift and creation that would simply provide "Joy" to the world. Joy continues to be one of the most memorable and coveted scents due to its unmistakeable flavour and sensuality.

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez is a singing sensation, a fashion diva and also a perfume designer. Each Jennifer Lopez fragrance and perfume line is a unique expression of an aspect of the superstar's personality. Jennifer Lopez fragrances are soft, clean and feminine and each one is without powerful or invasive notes, becoming a beautiful layer of sensually fragrant second skin.

Jil Sander

Jil Sander gives you a complete fragrance collection, all bearing the same pure vision and striking signature of a truly contemporary designer. Choose from fragrances that express and compliment her tailored suits, soft streamlined dresses and sharp fashion forward sportswear.

Jo Malone

After 20 years experience Jo Malone launched her own line of unmistakeable fragrances. Each Jo Malone fragrance is finely balanced and beautifully crafted to reveal a sensual, fresh optimism within a sexy and classically clean shell. Jo Malone utilises the best natural essences, with chemical technology that is kind and gentle on the senses and skin.


A multi-faceted and prolific designer, Wolfgang Joop creates designs that define the mood and spirit of the moment. Throughout Europe, the name Joop! - pronounced 'yope' - and always accompanied by an exclamation point - conjures up, in the minds of women and men alike, the utmost in luxurious ready-to-wear. This same symbol for luxury can be found in Joop! fragrances.

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.
