Summer Scents // Top Fragrance Picks

Being one who can't resist the temptation of treating myself in duty free whilst bored, there are many scents that remind me of holiday thanks to wearing them throughout a tropic week or two away! Here is a little introduction to my favourite 'summer scents,' always reminding me of good times and perfectly appropriate for the sunny weather.

Estee Lauder - Bronze Goddess // An obvious one that everybody must have tried and loved by now (if you haven't, nows the time) With a musky base for fruity coconut and floral overlays, its pretty exotic, and unlike any other perfume I have. Yum.

Jimmy Choo - Exotic // This one worried me when I first tried it - It smells like eucalyptus on first spray but settles down into something that receives comments all day long, thought its hard to describe. Its pretty strong, and is described as tropical and exotic with opening scents of blackcurrant and grapefruit, with patchouli and raspberry Definitely one appropriate for those summer nights. 

Gucci Flora // Glorious Mandarin // A lighter, crisp scent desribed with mandarin, pina colada, musk and jasmine. Delicately fruity and perfect for daytime when you're after something a little easier to wear, though it'd provide a distinctive lift in the evening too.

Acqua Di Parma - Mandorlo di Sicilia // I'm a huge fan of Acqua di Parma scents, for their long lasting strong scents. This is my absolute favourite, smelling perfectly of vanilla sweets and lasting all day.

Do you love any of these?

  9. I recently discovered the Acqua di Parma perfumes, and fell madly in love with the Fico Di Amalfi one in the Blu Mediterraneo range and it's now become my everyday scent! It has a lovely, citrus scent to start with, then fades to a soft, woody floral. I also loved the original gucci flora, so I might have to have a sniff of the mandarin one as I love anything a bit fruity!

  10. I so want to try Bronze Goddess - everyone raves about it, and I love holiday scented products xx
