I feel like we can safely say that British Summer time has officially arrived now! So with that in mind I have teamed up with Fragrance Direct to create a Summer Fragrance post featuring my Top 5 favourite new scents that you should be wearing this Summer and when. During summer time I like to put my richer, heavier fragrances to the back of my shelf and bring forward lighter, fresher perfumes with more fruity, floral & fresh notes. 

Remember that fragrance can have an influence on your mood and be a really powerful element when it comes to recalling memories. So let’s make some wonderful Summer 2019 memories wearing these fragrances, that we’ll forever remember each time we spritz them in the future! I have chosen 5 new in perfumes from Fragrance Direct that I think are perfect for summer time. Hopefully you’ll find a new one you wish to add to your fragrance wardrobe!

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle | The famous La Vie est Belle Eau de Parfum is reinterpreted with a floral fresh, petaly, generous and luminous signature of a peony and roses heart.” Lancôme invite you to ‘look on the pink side’ through a filter of optimism with this new scent. It’s fresh, petaly and luminous. I find this fragrance to be really pretty and feminine and the scent lasts well throughout the day. It has red fruits in the top notes, peony accord and rose essence in the heart and sexy sandalwood and musk in the base notes. As soon as I read that this perfume had peony notes in I knew I was going to love it as it’s my favourite fragrance note! I really love the new bottle with bright pink ribbon around the neck. 

When To Where It: Date Night.

Jimmy Choo Floral“A graceful scent evoking the pleasures of springtime in the city; parks and pavements awaken and nature explodes into bloom. The texture of each flower petal is almost tangible, subtle yet luminous, sophisticated yet urban, a radiant expression of femininity and a symphony of floral, fruity and musky notes.” I have absolutely fallen in love with this scent! The fragrance notes combined are unlike anything else I own not to mention the beautiful mint green bottle. I’d also say it would be a great one to wear if you’re going anywhere crowded like a concert of a festival this summer as although it’s light and fresh it’s actually really strong too. So ideal if you don’t want to smell anyone else!

Top Notes include: Bergamot Oil, Nectarine, Mandarin Oil and Heart Notes of: Magnolia Flower Oil, Sweet Pea, Apricot Flower with Base Notes of: Ambroxan, Musk, Blond Wood. 

When To Where It: To a Festival

Marc Jacobs Daisy So Fresh Sunshine“Inspired by sunny days and the sparkling spirit of daisy girls everywhere, Marc Jacobs brings a bright, sunny twist on the classic Daisy fragrances. Luscious pear blends with mimosa and heliotrope florals exuding an airy, fruity freshness.” I have to say this scent is hands down my favourite! I’m a big fan of the Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrances and think I have tried most of them now. This one is fresh, fruity and really summery! It reminds me of summer holidays, maybe because the first time I ever smelt it was in duty free before I boarded my flight on my holiday last month, but I think it’s a gorgeous one for those chilled beach days or to take away with you on holiday. 

ADDIT

When To Where It: Beach Day or Summer Holiday

Bulgaria Omnia Amethyste Candy Shop Edition | “Inspired by the shimmering hues of the amethyst gemstone, this floral Eau de Toilette captures the myriad scents of iris and rose gardens caressed with morning dew.” It’s described as a fruit floral but I would personally say it’s much more fruity than floral. With top notes of Goji Berry, Hibiscus and Pomegranate in the mid notes and Cedarwood in the base; you definitely get the berry and pomegranate coming through the strongest. This is by far the most unique bottle out of the 5 I chose too! I love it. It took me a minute to work it how to spritz it to be honest, I though maybe you took the top off but you actually just press down on one side. Bulgaria have 4 different scents in their candy shop editions which include Crystalline, Coral and Pink so make sure you check them all out before deciding on your favourite. 

When To Where It: Picnic or BBQ 

Purchase here - priced at £64.00 for 65ml

YSL Mon Paris Floral | A floral and luminous juice that builds on the signature iconic datura flower, enlightened by a floral bouquet of dewy white flowers and juicy peaches. The scent opens with a fruity sharpness composed of bergamot essence, crisp pears, zingy raspberries and the sweetness of peach. At the heart, the alluring datura flower gives way to the exotic jasmine sambac, uplifted by orange flower and magnolia essence, with the gentle accord of peony. Underpinning it all, the grounding patchouli essence and cashmere provides comfort like a lover's embrace.” I feel like this one is really elegant and classy with lots of floral & feminine fragrance notes. I love the fruity touches as well you can definitely smell the raspberries in there and of course it has my favourite peony notes too! I could imagine wearing this to a summer wedding or even as a gift to the bride. The bottle looks really special and expensive I think. 

When To Where It: Summer Wedding

Purchase here - priced at £63.99 for 50ml
