MY TOP 5 SUMMER FRAGRANCES ♥♥
1) DIPTYQUE: VETYVERIO
Eau de Toilette: £70 – £90
Eau de Parfum: £115
This is one of my most favourite perfumes ever!
It’s slightly more upmarket and niche but the smell is absolutely divine and well worth the price tag! It reminds me of that smell you get if you’ve ever walked through a forest after its been raining. Natural and fresh with a hint of sweetness.
You can buy this from any ‘Diptyque’ store/online or Space NK.
‘Diptyque’ is a luxury brand born in Paris, 1961. They pride themselves on being a luxury brand specialising in signature candles. The product became so popular they decided to branch out in the world of Perfume and instead of just your home smelling heavenly you can as well.
2) DKNY: PURE
Eau de Parfum: £28.50
This is my go to everyday perfume (and popular with the boys)!
It’s a floral smell with a hint of vanilla that keeps this fragrance soft and feminine. It’s also light, so a spritz of this revitalises you for those humid days in Sun.
I like this bottle; its clean and simple much like the scent itself. I can imagine it perched on a minimalist interior designed bedroom next to a Japanese Bonsai plant.
3) CHLOE: LOVE
Eau de Parfum: £53
I’d say this is more of a Summer in evening scent. It’s a little bit heavier than the others with Iris being the dominant note. I love the powdery smell too; I’d say that’s what makes this perfume so beautifully distinct.
‘Chloe’ is a well-known designer brand, and its fragrance remains a firm favourite in the prestigious Make Up Halls of Harrods.
‘Chloe: Love’ compliments a warm evening with great friends and an Aperol Spritz.
One extra brownie point is that it has a small chain attached to the lid so you can’t lose it somewhere in the depths of your handbag.
4) ELIZABETH ARDEN: GREEN TEA
Eau de Toilette: £24
This reminds me of my teenage years. Its young, fresh and vibrant!
Elizabeth Ardens demographic is around 30+ years old. ‘Green Tea’ I’d say targets a younger woman; it’s fun, inexpensive and exudes citrus notes.
Base notes include bergamot and Jasmine which compliments the distinct lemon zest essence.
This perfume couples nicely with my Summer Time Make Up Look.
5) AQUA DI PARMA: ARANCIA DI CAPRI
Eau de Toilette: £66
This fragrance carries me away to a beautiful yacht in the middle of the Mediterranean sea with David Gandy by my side (a girl can dream).
This tantalising fruity splash invigorates whilst at the same time adding an element of spicy aroma. It’s unisex so make sure your Boyfriend/Brother or Dad doesn’t get his hands on it!
Its radiant Mandarin and Orange top notes are luxuriously exotic. And the blue packaging mimics the aqua blue Mediterranean Sea.
I’m going to Tuscany soon so I think this perfume will be perfect to take with me!
Enjoy the Sun!
