Nothing is worse than cheap perfume that smells like carpet in a bar after closing. Aromantik is literally a beautiful breath of fresh air, hand made by perfumer Sally Woodward-Hawes in her workshop in Manly, on Sydney’s northern beaches. With titles such as Strangers in Blood, Landlocked Lovers and Happily Ever Afternoon, her scents are both subtle and intoxicating and packaged with beautiful simplicity, and most importantly, are a great fit in your handbag. My favourite at the moment is her latest edition, Dark Side of the Spoon: it’s sweet, spicy, and a delectable treat for the skin.
