Six fresh scents that are perfect for the summer months
When it comes to summer scents, our usual go-to favourites don't work quite as well.
Although you might have big love for Dior Poison and Givenchy Ange ou Demon (fab but not for daywear, I learned this the hard way), it's time to consider lighter options for the summer months.
The gorgeous sun over the last few days has inspired us to choose a new scent and there are lots of FAB launches for summer 2017.
Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau de Parfum, €70 for 50ml
Coconut and suntan lotion mixed together which sounds simple and smells incredible. Also, side note for the bronze-effect bottle which will look stunning atop your dressing table... with all those rose gold accessories we know you've gathered over time. This is limited-edition and is only available while stocks last, which basically makes us want it all the more.
Chloe Love Story Eau Sensuelle, €86.50 for 50ml
This scent is a new take on the original Love Story, which we're already big fans of. It might have something to do with the fact that I just want to be a #ChloeGirl or it could be the mix of vanilla, orange blossom and sandalwood. Comforting with a hint of sensuality, this will be your new fragrance friend, all year around.
Tom Ford, €120 for 50ml
If your holidays are a while away yet or maybe they're just over (SOB), this scent will transport you straight back to those easy carefree days when all you had to worry about was what time to head to the beach. Mandarino di Amalfi Acqua is inspired by the Amalfi Coast and if you've ever been, you'll know what a special part of the world it is. Mandarino has a floral core but black pepper, coriander and shiso leaf ensure a richness that sets this scent apart.
Sisley Paris, €80 for 30ml
If you like feminine, floral scents but want a hint of something extra too, this rose scent packs a punch. The combination of rose and musk means it's one you'll wear all year around but a touch of pink pepper adds the freshness that's so important when choosing a perfume for the warmer seasons.
Miu Miu L’Eau Bleu, €44.50 for 20ml
You've definitely spotted this perfume bottle on Instagram as many a blogger has referenced it. This is the perfect size for travel, ideal when you don't want to haul a regular bottle around on holidays. A mix of honeysuckle and lily of the valley, this is a standard summer choice but works just as well as a light perfume for everyday wear.
Daisy Marc Jacobs, €96.50 for 100ml
This jasmine, berry and white violet pick might be in your possession already but it's had somewhat of a revival due to its 10th anniversary. It's the type of fragrance you'll find yourself wearing again, so much so that it becomes 'your' perfume. If you're a fan of Miss Dior Cherie, you'll know exactly what I mean, a nostalgic scent that you just can't shake off.
