Even if I can’t physically transport myself into quiet solitude, I can at least find a moment of peace with Jo Malone’s English Oak Collection.

Summer times are for sailing away into the sunset, but instead I have been hard at work. How I wish I was back on the Amalfi Coast, enjoying a chilled glass of wine by the seaside. Instead of grappling after the ephemeral, Tom Ford has effectively distilled the essence of the Italian coast in its Neroli Portofino Collection, and the latest Tom Ford Sole di Positano EDP takes its inspiration from the beautiful cliffside village of Positano.
