Maya Jama, currently on our screens hosting Love Island, has been giving us major beauty inspo with her behind-the-scenes glimpses from sunny Mallorca. She's even let slip about her "current fave" scent that's got everyone talking, and we know just where you can buy it – plus one excellent budget-friendly dupe.

Taking to her Instagram stories, Maya revealed her Love Island 2024 perfume pick: Giorgio Armani Magenta Tanzanite Eau de Parfum. She wrote in the post: "And because you lot have been asking since Chris said I smelt nice, this is my current fave."

She added: "If you like like cinnamon like me you will," complete with a melting face emoji, reports the Mirror.

Maya shared her current favourite perfume

A luxe, spicy scent with notes of cinnamon and ginger

  • Giorgio Armani Magenta Tanzanite Eau de Parfum, for £290 for 100ml from Selfridges

Selfridges describes this opulent fragrance as being inspired by 'the mysterious aura of Tanzanian skies at dawn'. It boasts a rich blend of ginger, cinnamon, coffee, and vanilla bourbon notes. Besides Selfridges, it's also available to buy from John Lewis and Harrods.

One shopper raved about it on the John Lewis website, likening it to "a touch of smelling like an extremely high end Christmas hot chocolate with a shot of espresso" – now that's a vibe we're into!

Another chimed in with praise, calling it a "stunning sweet tobacco-coffee-choco-vanilla scent."

But, at £290 for 100ml, it's quite the splurge. Fear not, because we've scoured for some more wallet-friendly alternatives that'll have you channelling Maya's signature scent without breaking the bank.

If you're a fan of spicy scents, Jo Malone London Ginger Beer Cologne could be a great alternative for you. Priced at £58 for a 30ml bottle, this fragrance is part of Jo Malone's recent Scented Mementoes collection and is inspired by the traditional picnic drink.

A recent launch from Jo Malone

  • Jo Malone London Ginger Beer Cologne, £58 for 30ml from LookFantastic

It features notes of ginger and cinnamon, along with warm roasted oak. Although it's a smaller bottle than Maya's Armani favourite, ml for ml this Jo Malone offering is cheaper.

Another option that's heavily focused around the fragrance note of ginger is Prada Les Infusions de Prada Gingembre Eau de Parfum. This scent has hundreds of five-star reviews and is currently reduced from £135 to £114.75 for 100ml.
