Top 6 Summer Scents

Hey Ladies,

As some of you may know from my last post, my blog turned 1 just over a week ago. The first thing I posted on almost a year ago was 'My Top 6 Spring Fragrances'. I thought it might be nice to do something similar this year, with Summer scents. With today being the first official day of Summer I thought it only right to do a little post in honour of the gorgeous weather to come (I hear our Summer is on a Thursday this year) and we all love a good scent for the Summer months don't we?! Everyone knows I am a fragrance nut. There's no denying that, I think my collection has passed the 60 bottles mark (don't judge me). So, this year I have chosen 6 different scents, which I think are perfect for Summer.

Lancome - Miracle

It's really hard to believe this scent is 13 years old... Miracle was a fragrance that someone gave to me as a gift for my 21st birthday, I fell in love with it immediately. There's something so perfect about the way this lingers on the skin. It's breezy and refreshing, although it contains base notes of Jasmine, musk, and amber it's what I like to call spicy floral. It's one you really cant go to far wrong with for Summer!

Valentino - Rock n' Rose

Rock n' Rose was not something I thought would be for me. I'm not a massive rose fan, especially if it that synthetic rose scent or if its overpowering, but this is a beautiful scent, it's a very chic, feminine scent. Its almost like a powdered rose scent, mixed with soft wood and amber, when the scent dries down, you can almost get a faint vanilla smell, it's really lovely. I would wear this as more of an evening scent, mainly because the wear time on this isn't incredible so it's probably best worn when you only need a few hours wear.

Dior - Miss Dior

I absolutely adore this scent, it was a Christmas gift from my father. It is perfect for any time of year but I think especially so for Summer, Ms Dior is a very floral fragrance but it has a woodsy dept to it. It can be quite strong on first spritz but honestly once it dries down what you're left with is the most beautiful scent of floral, woodsy, amber amzingness. I just love this.

Thierry Muglar - Alien Sunessence Or d'Ambre

Alien is definitely a scent that people either love or hate, but either way it's a scent that is very easy to recognise. The distinctive scent of Alien is strong in the Sunessence Or d'Ambre, you would know it is part of the Alien family. The difference of this scent though, is that it is fresher, not as heavy and has a more amber present in the fragrance, it's stunning.

Roger & Gallet - The Vert

This is described a lot as a masculine scent... I don't get why. This scent is breezy and fresh. you can absolutely get the aroma of tea, but there is also a strong scent of lime, lemon and mandarin. I can see this working well on a really hot summers day (not that we're blessed with too many of them in Ireland!) it's not cloying or over powering just beautifully zingy and fresh! I definitely recommend this for Summer!

Lancome - La Vie est Belle

La Vie est Belle, oh how I adore you. This is my third bottle of this in less than a year. I ADORE this scent. It's perfect for all year round wear but, especially for Summer. This is one of those scents that pulls you in, it's stunning, praline, jasmin and patchouli stand out the most, it's intoxicating, the staying power is incredible and I cannot say enough about this scent to explain how much I love it, but you can read a full review here. 

That's it for now ladies!
I hope you enjoyed,
