Well hello there sunshine, I hope you’re all enjoying this glorious Tuesday. I recently featured some of my go to scents on Snapchat [themakeupfairy] and you guys took thousands of screenshots, so I decided to do a blog post on my top 6 scents for Summer. I’m a self confessed fragrance addict; I’m constantly adding to my collection and love exploring wonderful whiffs at my favourite cosmetic counters.
Beach Walk from the Replica Collection by Maison Martin Margiela, is a set of fragrances designed to evoke images, impressions and positive emotions that reflect our personal memories. Containing fresh and radiant notes of bergamot, lemon, pink pepper and ylang ylang, this is the perfect day time scent for Summer.
CREED Love in White is a gorgeous bouquet of white flowers including Magnolia, Narcissus and White Hyacinth with Fresh Grass on a base of White Iris from Florence, Rice Husk, and Vanilla to add depth and longevity. This is a really floral yet luxurious day to night transitional Summer scent.
Giorgio Armani’s Vert Malachite contains delicately balanced by fresh yet intoxicating notes. The heart of this fragrance is Lily which is uplifted with spicy white flower for the ultimate olfactory illusion. Although on the pricey side, this unique night time scent has been on my lust list for some time now.
Acqua di Parma’s Cedro di Taormina epitomises a Mediterranean trip. Made with fresh citron and petit grain, combined with aromatic basil, black pepper and lavender it’s a sparkling and spicy blend with the intense base notes of cistus labdanum, vetiver and Virginia Cedarwood. This is the ultimate holiday fragrance; it’s not too heavy for day time wear but works really well for night time too.
Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino Acqua will quite literally take you to the Italian Riviera with it’s idyllic azure waters. A fresher expression of Neroli Potofin’s clear and sparkling facets, it’s a lighter way to wear the fragrance’s citrus and amber signature. I’m a massive fan of Tom Ford fragrances and this is a must have addition to your collection if you’re a fellow fan.
Finally, Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede is a flirtatious fragrance containing juicy red apple and opulent jasmine, rose and gillyflower. Mingling with the sensuality of soft, blush suede it’s luxurious and seductive. I originally purchased this scent for Spring but it perfectly transitions into Summer and is the most feminine fragrance of the bunch, one men always comment on.
