After months of reviewing close to 300 beauty products and wellness facilities, and tallying, here are the best skincare products of this year, and lest we forget, your top pick! And so without further ado, here are the Beauty & Wellness Awards winners.

From affecting mood and emotion to bringing back memories, and transporting one to a different time and place, scent is definitely one of the more powerful senses and should always be selected carefully. Whether your preference lies with the clean and green, warm and spicy, or fruity and floral, we’ve spritzed and sniffed our way through many to find the best scents and fragrances of the year

1
Best Storied Scent: Penhaligon’s The Favourite

The story of this charming scent is layered with florals and fruits, and with soft, warm and powdery Mimosa taking centre stage. Her regal scent is brightened by the confidence of freesia, violet and mandarin before dusk falls on the elegance of Indian sandalwood.

“This reminds me of sunshine and playful memories. The floral freshness and powdery sweetness exude a sense of elegance.” Elva Ni, Influencer & Yogi

Best Floral Fragrance: Tom Ford Rose Prick

Inspired by the designer’s private rose garden and centred on a trio of Rose de Mai, Turkish and Bulgarian roses, Rose Prick is not your typical flowery fragrance. Instead, it’s warm and spicy, but sharp with notes of Sichuan pepper, turmeric and tonka bean, and it blooms beautifully through the day.

Best Fresh Fragrance: Goutal Petite Chérie

A tribute to Annick Goutal’s daughter, Camille, Petite Chérie is bright and fresh with the fruity notes of pear and peach. It’s lightly floral and youthful, captivating those that walk past with musky rose, vanilla and the scent of freshly cut grass.

Best Chypre Scent: Diptyque Eau Capitale

An intoxicating and long-lasting fragrance that celebrates the essence of Paris, Eau Capitale settles on a scent built around a fresh bouquet of roses with bergamot and patchouli, before it’s spiced with the brightness and warmth of pink peppercorns.

Readers’ Choice: Byredo Blanche

Simple and pure, like fresh laundry, blanche is delicately layered with the clean scent of aldehyde softened with white rose and pink pepper. Its warm core is brightened with neroli and peony, and sweetened with violet before it’s washed with sandalwood and musk, then anchored with blonde woods.
