When it comes to summer fragrances, I love nothing more than a light, floral scent to remind me of the fresh, summery vibes. A scent that is perfect for every day, isn’t too heavy and most importantly lasts all day long. There are so many fragrances that remind me of past summers and my favourite from last year was Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess and let’s be honest, I think that was every mum and their dogs favourite scent, but hey ho, can’t help what you love eh? Fast forward to this year and I am currently spoilt for choice on a summer perfume, so the easiest way was to lay them all out and talk to you about why I love each and every one of them.
I’ll start off with Cosmopolitan, and for some reason, I didn’t think it would smell as good. I know the whole ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ and all that, but I was so pleasantly surprised by this. It actually smells so, so nice. It’s got a fruity base note to it, with a floral medium. It’s just the perfect summer scent and the bottle is super cute. Moving on and talking about pretty bottles and all that, check out Ghost Girlcrush and Vince Camuto Capri, both of these have amazing bottle designs and smell gorgeous too. Girlcrush is another fruity one with a touch of floral and Capri is quite similar, but with more of a sweet note. Gucci Bamboo, released last year in eau de parfum form have just recently launched in eau de toilette making it a much more lighter and great for the summer. The fragrance is still the same, soft, yet exotic with that special touch of femininity.
Some of you may or may not know that Stella McCartney is my all-time favourite ever and later on in the month, they will be launching POP, a unique fragrance which combines tuberose with sandalwood to produce a statement feminine scent without being too overwhelming. I personally love this and it’s definitely one of my current favourites and so perfect for holidays.
Angel’s latest launch, named Muse is another unique scent that I find very attractive, in fact quite addictive. The combination of fruity notes with spicy freshness makes it great for summer evenings and the pebble stoned bottle design is super pretty.
For that little pop of colour, because summer is all about that brightness even though our weather doesn’t relate, DKNY’s Electric collection is something everyone needs to get in to the summer mood. The collection consists of three scents, Bright (green), Citric (orange) and Candy (pink) and they all smell incredible. My personal favourite is Candy because it’s just so fresh and sweet. Another one to opt for, for summer evenings is Jimmy Choo Exotic, it’s a limited edition twist to the classic with a fruity composition and smells absolutely gorgeous.
What summer fragrances are you reaching for this season? Do you have a classic scent that you swear by every summer?
