The aroma of freshly bloomed flowers and the feeling of warm air have us in a summer mood! There is no better time to start fresh with a new fragrance. If you are looking for a signature scent for the season, we’ve got a few you’ll love.
Our favourite summer scents:
Jimmy Choo Flash
The first Jimmy Choo fragrance was heavy on the patchouli, but this lighter version is perfect for summer. With tops notes of pink pepper, tangerine and strawberry and heart notes of tuberose, jasmine and white lily, this scent is reminiscent of a pretty summer picnic.
Of the latest Lanvin perfume Alber Elbaz described is as “a partiture of the feelings and emotions of a moment, like a fascinating melody of the senses." It’s mix of florals, blueberry and licorice might be the fragrance you want to capture the feeling of summer.
Balmain Eau d’Ivoire
This sporty scent is a great summer addition. With notes of bergamot, red currant, osmanthus, magnolia, musk ambrettolide and patchouli this fresh fruit and floral mix is suggestive of summers outdoors.
Reve by Van Cleef and Arpels
French for “dream” Réªve is a perfume that certainly captures its name. The top notes of pear and neroli move peacefully to lily, and rests on the basenotes of sandalwood and amber. Altogether the notes are velvety and romantic, a perfect mix to get lost in a dream.
Armani Prive Nuances
This limited edition Armani scent follows La Femme Nacre and La Femme Bleue to be the third in the Armani Privé© Les é‰ditions Couture collection. Unlike most summer scents, which feature light bottles and fruity notes, this fragrance comes in a dark bottle and features notes of orris, bergamot, cinnamon, heliotrope, vetiver and sandalwood for a more unique summer signature.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Sunshine Edition
Another update on an already popular perfume is Marc Jacobs’ latest edition. This new fruitier version of Daisy might evoke memories of summers past. It has notes of red currant, guava, mandarin, muguet, violet, lychee, apricot skin, blonde woods and musk. While the bottle looks exactly like the original Daisy, it’s tangerine colour makes it clear this one is here to make new memories.
