Going to see a live show
If your NYE plans involve seeing a live show, albeit with social distancing in place, you should think a little carefully about your choice of fragrance. For the likes of the theatre, or taking the kids to see a pantomime, you might want to opt for a subtler, softer fragrance so as not to overpower those sat nearby.

Even if you’re staying in, there’s no reason you can’t still make a little effort and make a great night out of it. Think of warming, cosy scents with a hint of spice and get yourself in front of the fire or the TV!
