$76, Lise Watier
Eau Canada: how we love a pretty, home-grown perfume. And Lise Watier’s Désirable eau de parfum doesn’t disappoint. The scent is a playful mix of fresh juicy berries and crisp green apples that dissolves into a flower garden of magnolias, freesia and lily-of-the-valley before finishing with a light touch of musty musk and warm sandalwood. A staple scent since 2008 and made in collaboration with perfumers Christine Baillifard and Jean-Marc Chaillan, this weighty bottle’s mauve liquid is both charming and confident, much like the brand’s eponymous founder. A cosmetics powerhouse for over 40 years, Lisa Watier and her perfumes are synonymous with spirit, independence and class: Ms Watier is renowned for giving back to homeless women who are trying to create new lives for themselves.
