There’s little in this life more indulgent than a scented body cream. It sits somewhere in the middle of perfume, which we mindlessly spray on ourselves, and thick, nourishing body butters that are exactly that: thick, nourishing and, let’s face it, scentless. The real luxury is wearing an alluring veil of scent that hydrates at the same time. Here are 5 of the best long lasting scented lotions:
& Other Stories Perle de Coco Body Lotion, £7 – Get a tub of this and be transported to some kind of Hawaii hula bar where everyone smells of coconut, vanilla and even a bit of caramel. Sounds overly sweet but it isn’t and it’ll last ages; we’re obsessed.
Frederic Malle Bigarade Body Lotion, £66 – Possibly the Lamborghini of scented body lotions. This milky lotion feels so light on skin, it’s a joy to apply even when it’s stupidly hot. It also smells of one of his classic fragrances, Bigarade, which has a citrusy twist along with woody notes and cedar. If you like luxe, this is your lotion.

Jo Loves Pomelo Hand & Body Lotion, £40 – Jo Loves is the new(ish) brand from Jo Malone founder, Jo Malone. And the scents, lotions and potions all smell just as good. Pomelo is her personal favourite – and ours too – and if you’re a bit over your arms and legs, keep this on your sink for the best smelling hands around.
Aesop Rind Concentrate Body Balm, £67 – Is there anyone in this world who doesn’t love Aesop? We think not, and this cream is a classic. They call it a ‘balm’, which sounds heavy and oily, but actually this is really light, refreshing and smells a bit citrusy (hence the rind). It’ll last ages too and the pump makes it easy to apply.

Body Shop Coconut Milk Body Lotion, £8.50 – Perfect for the morning or when you’re in a rush, this coconut-scented lotion comes in a spray so, yep, you can literally spray moisture and the sweet scent of summer all over you. And for under £10 it’s a no brainer.
