‘Discover what’s hot this month in the world of health and beauty – and don’t miss your chance to win a Father’s Day makeover for your dad (or the other special man in your life)’ Helen Daly, Editor
This year’s take on spring fragrance is a real step change. Forget more obvious fresh florals – these scents are sexy, sensual and chic, getting us in the mood for warmer months ahead. ‘They capture the feeling of balmy evenings,’ says master perfumer Roja Dove, ‘and are designed to linger seductively on warm skin.’
How to choose?
‘Spritz, then breathe in and close your eyes,’ says Roja. ‘If you aren’t taken somewhere by the scent, it’s probably not for you.’

It’s the London marathon! Whether you’re taking part or just inspired to start pounding the pavement**, ‘Remember the three Ps,’ says Nick Anderson, coach for Cancer Research UK’s 2017 team. ‘Plan your running: how many times a week, where and when? Be patient: improvement will come, but it’s a progressive process!’
