I love perfumes and I believe that a scent that makes you think of summer can do wonders for your mood. I sometimes smell my summer moisturiser during the winter just to be instantly transported back to long summer days of sunbathing and instagramming my feet by a pool.
I am really excited about my list of this years best summer perfumes, so here they are. My scents of the summer.
First up, the Miss Dior Originale Eau de Toilette
There are a few different versions of the classic Miss Dior but this is my favourite for summer. It is lighter than the others and less imposing, if those are legit words for describing perfume…
It combines Jasmine, Patchouli and Galbanum which is a plant that grows in Iran and Afghanistan which is what gives the perfume it’s ‘green notes’
Next is L’Eau de Chloe:
If in doubt, perfumes that are green in colour tend to be summery ones. This is a gorgeous fresh smell. It has light notes of freesia, peony, litchi and lily of the valley over a base that includes cedarwood and amber. This also makes it a good perfume for an evening.
This next one is my favourite of the three. It is the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh:
This youthful fragrance combines all the connotations of summer in a cute bottle. It’s top notes include grapefruit, pear and raspberry which explains why I love it so much because I absolutely love any beauty product that is grapefuit scented. It’s sweet, but with an edge. I am definitely adding this to my ‘to buy’ list.
My last scent isn’t a perfume, it is a moisturiser that I thought was discontinued but it was actually only repackaged!
It is the Victoria’s Secret Pink Sun Kissed range:
This body butter btw is to die. It has really tiny bits of glitter so it gives you a gorgeous golden glow.
It used to be this:
It was pure chance that I managed to find it. I was just smelling all the different moisturisers in the shop and I instantly recognised this one as the beloved moisturiser I had 3 years ago. This coconutty goo makes me so happy I am thrilled to be reunited with it ❤
Those are my favourite scents for the summer. To me, they smell like tan lines and Wimbledon.
