My Favourite Summer Fragrances

My Favourite Summer Fragrances

To get you in the summer mood, or to brighten up any cold weather blues, then there is nothing like a refreshing scent to whisk you away to another place. Now, I do not own any of these scents, but I am certainly tempted by a few, however, I have smelt them all. So without further or do, let's get started!

1. Lovestruck by Vera Wang (Eau de Parfum) 30 ml (£35), 50 ml (£48), 100 ml (£62).
I can't sum up this romantic concoction better than the website, so here it is:

"Lovestruck is about the emotion and rush you feel when you are falling in love and going for it, those heart-pounding moments of spontaneity." Vera Wang. Vera Wang Lovestruck was inspired by a modern day twist on Romeo & Juliet. It captures the feeling of a woman who is struck by love, captivated by passion. It represents an irresistible romance. She is madly in love and she's going for it.

The fragrance is a sparkling addictive floral you are sure to fall in love with. There's an instant attraction to the mouthwatering pink guava and mandarin, followed by a delicate mix of tuberose and lotus blossom. Behind it all, precious woods and sheer musk envelope a passionate elegance.

I definitely love this scent, it has so many characteristics to it, and smells beautiful. Of course I cannot go without reviewing this perfume without talking about the bottle; it is so delicate, pretty and really suits the fragrance. I love the advert as well, partly because I am a Leighton Meester fan! All I can say now, is go and smell it!

2. Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs (Eau de Toilette) 75 ml (£48) and 125 (£62), also purse spray 20 ml spray with a 15 ml refill (£29.50)
This fragrance is perfect for summer (though it's so delicious, I'd wear it all year round!). It is the ideal amount of freshness, floral and fruit, making it very pleasing to the nose.
Here is what the website has to say:

Vibrant, Charming, Whimsical. Daisy eau so fresh is the spirited new version of the original daisy. It transports you to a place that is happy and sunny exuding a youthful spirit with a positively fresh and charmingly simple feeling. Daisy eau so fresh excites the senses bringing the feeling of happiness and contentment. It's bright, elegant, and full of charm. Lose yourself in a field of flowers with daisy eau so fresh.  

Daisy eau so fresh is a bright, floral, fruity fragrance. It radiates with a sunny and sparkling energy. Playful with a whimiscal spirit, this version of the original daisy scent radiates with crisp raspberry, sensuous wild rose, and deep and warm plum. Sophisticated but not too serious, daisy eau so fresh captures the vintage flavor of marc jacobs feminine, edgy designs.      

The description of this scent is very accurate and I could for sure detect the raspberry which added a subtle fruity twist. And of course the perfume bottle itself is a work of art, as are all of Marc Jacob's perfumes.

3. Oh Lola! by Marc Jacobs (Eau de Parfum) 30 ml (£37), 50 ml (£47), 100 ml (£63).
What the website says:

VIBRANT. FLIRTATIOUS. LIGHT HEARTED. Oh, Lola! is a new take on our original Lola fragrance. Oh, Lola! is flirtatious and charming with a sparkling personality. It leaves you feeling light-hearted and youthful.

  • Topnotes - Pear, Effervescent Raspberry

  • Midnotes - Peony, Magnolia, Cyclamen

  • Basenotes - Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, Vanilla.

  • That basically sums it all up and of course the bottle is again gorgeous!

    4. Purr by Katy Perry (Eau de Parfum) 15 ml (£15.83), 50 ml (£32.68), 100 ml (£47.99)
    This is a delicious smelling fragrance with mouth-watering fruity notes and sweet smelling florals.
    This is what the website has to say:

    Introducing the brand new fragrance ‘Purr ’ by Katy Perry. In Purr, Katy has created a fragrance which personifies the cute, sexy and unique style which has become synonymous with the Katy Perry brand. Purr is a highly sophisticated yet playful perfume which makes you smile!

    The fragrance is a rich eau de parfum which opens with a fresh citrus accord of peach nectar and forbidden apple to awaken the senses. It develops into a delicate floral bouquet supported by notes of jasmine blossom and pink freesia and dries down into a rich, luxurious scent rich with vanilla orchid and sandalwood.
    • Top Notes - Peach Nectar, Green Bamboo, Forbidden Apple, Gardenia.
    • Heart Notes - Jasmine Blossom, Pink Freesia, Bulgarian Rose.
    • Base Notes - Vanilla Orchid, White Amber, Creamy Sandalwood, Skin Musk.
    Being the big fan of Katy Perry, cats and this fragrance that I am, if you're a fan of fruity, floral, sweet scents, go and check it out!

    5. Parisienne by Yves Saint Laurent (Eau de Parfum) 30 ml (£37.50), 50 ml (£51.50), 100 ml (£72).
    This fragrance is fun enough for the summer, but is definitely also suited for the other seasons.
    This is how the website describes it:

    Parisienne Eau de Parfum from Yves Saint Laurent is a portrait of a woman incredibly free. She was not born in Paris but Paris adopts her. Because she conveys the joy of living and loving in the moment. She fully reveals herself to the day with this new interpretation, an Eau de Parfum fresh and sensual, vibrating of energy. A grand floral with a woody structure,. The top note adds the shine of vinyl, the tartness of cranberry softened by sparkling, succulent, fruity blackberry.

    The bottle is classic and elegant, and is well suited to the perfume.

    So, I hope you found this useful and that it will prompt you to get a whiff of these wonderful fragrances!

    Lots of Love,

    Isabella x
