Fekkai calls them “fragrances with benefits” because despite smelling delicious (think Crème Vanillée, Citron et Menthe and Rose Fraîche), these tonics also boost shine, stomp out static and diminish frizz. They’re sexy too, since people will need to practically nuzzle you in order to truly capture their aura. Fekkai Hair Fragrance Must in Crème Vanillée and Citron et Menthe ($25 to $28 each), at Shoppers Drug Mart, shoppersdrugmart.ca. READ MORE: Date-night beauty must haves
