8 herb infused fragrances
Ahead of Taste of Dubai, we turn to aromatic fragrances with outdoor notes of parsley, basil, rosemary and more, for unisex scents fresh from the herb garden.
1. 1 Million EDT
Top notes of fresh mint give this stand out spicy fragrance a smooth start before it turns into a sultrier dry down with a blend of cinnamon, leather and amber.

2. Lime, Basil & Mandarin
The brand’s signature scent owes some of its popularity to the unexpected addition of basil. The Italian favourite lends a peppery greenness to the zesty citrus fruit and warming thyme notes.
Jo Malone London, AED600
3. Verveine EDT
The perfect summer scent, this zesty herbal fragrance refreshes in one spritz thanks to its sparkling veil of flowering lemon verbena over lemon tree essence and geranium. It really does smell lemony delicious.
4. Lavandula EDP
This unisex aromatic livens up a traditionally fussy French lavender scent with a top note of fresh basil, a middle note of fuzzy clary sage and a base of creamy vanilla and tonka bean.
5. Florabellio EDT
Described as “the ocean meets the shore”, this bracing scent crashes raw salt into crushed sea fennel for an EDT that recalls wild places. Base notes of coffee beans and roasted sesame seeds help the scent dry-down.
6. Burberry Brit EDT
Asian lemongrass adds an unexpected edge to Burberry’s bestselling mix of green almond, icy pear and vanilla bean, for a scent with a little more bite while embodying British eccentricity.

7. Eau Dynamisante
Promoting “freshness, firmness, vitality”, Clarins’ chypre has graced wrists for 25 years. The blend of rosemary, coriander and thyme calms the senses, while Amalfi lemon and caraway seeds recharge the mind.
8. Yatagan EDT
Named for the curved Turkish saber, Yatagan is equally sharp, with feisty green notes of tarragon, mint, watercress and basil enhanced by an animalistic castoreum base.
