Picking your summer scents..

When the weather starts to get warmer, I always tend to change my perfumes up to something fresher. Does anyone else do this? The fragrances I wear in winter are a little stronger and more musky, but in the spring summer months I enjoy more fresh, floral scents day to day.

There are so many new summer perfumes to choose from these days, I'm always so tempted to purchase a new one even though I end up going back to old favourites. I'm not great at describing scents, I think training your nose to decipher the intricacies of a fragrance is a skill I'm yet to learn but I do try! I've shared some of my favourites below and *attempted* to explain why I like them!

A firm favourite of mine is the Carolina Herrera L'eau, but I found out last week on holiday this has been discontinued and I'm so sad! I think I would have had this as my wedding day perfume so I'll have to have a good think about this now.


I'm a big fan of Vera Wang fragrances, a personal favourite being Love Struck. Aside from the cute bottle that displays so well on my dressing room shelves, it has sparkling floral notes and a really muted mandarin that comes through when it has been on the skin for a while.

I also love the Charlotte Tilbury 'Scent of a Dream' perfume. This is much stronger than the other two and lasts all day when I wear it. It has quite a woody smell (Is this a thing?) as well as giving off hints of pepper and lemon. Obviously you would have to smell it first hand to understand what I mean but compared to my other lighter, floral scents this is quite a mature scent when I wear it. I like saving this one for rare evenings out and date nights.

These are my favourite summer fragrances, what are yours?
