Fashion and music have always had a close connection, from the iconic moment when Kate Moss joined former lover Pete Doherty on stage to sing ‘La belle et la bête’ during a Babyshambles gig, to Carla Bruni hanging up her supermodel stilettos to take to the folk stage. Many brands have capitalised in the natural collaboration between music and fashion, by designing stage outfits. Roberto Cavalli was the designer behind the Spice Girls comeback tour creations, and Frida Giannini, of Gucci, designed the beautiful ethereal dresses for Florence and the Machine’s latest US tour.

I haven’t smelt the fragrance but to be honest - most of the gigs that I have been to have been full of sweaty adolescents; so any fragrance that improves the smell of these ‘too cool to wash’ kids gets my vote.
