I know we’re currently still in Winter but before we know it, the next seasons are going to roll around and we’ll be basking in the sun once again. I’m actually quite enjoying the cold, just not when it’s icy or constantly raining. I don’t know about you but the products I use tend to change depending on the weather and season we’re in and perfumes are something I really love wearing but not something I tend to talk about a lot on here. Here are the Spring and Summer scents I’d recommend!
My Favourite Spring And Summer Scents
Shay And Blue Black Tulip* // £55 for 100ml
So I collaborated with Shay and Blue last year and uploaded a review on this perfume (what a great name!). You can view the whole post here but I absolutely adore this scent and am so happy I came across it as I feel like it’s one of those perfumes that you can wear in the daytime aswell as the evening. Black Tulip is a fresh, spicy and sweet scent all in one which is what I love the most about it. It’s really versatile, long lasting and it’s got something for everyone in it. Shay and Blue have so many other amazing sounding scents so you should definitely check them out if this doesn’t sound like your kind of perfume. Their products are such a decent price for the individuality and quality you receive.
Missguided Boss Babe // £28 for 80ml perfume & keyring
I first smelt this when my friend Becky received it as PR and I knew I had to have it. It reminded me of one of my absolute favourite body creams (Japanese Camellia Cream) and it has almond milk, vanilla and magnolia notes in it. It is gorgeously creamy and sweet smelling and much like Black Tulip, it’s also suitable for daywear. I’m not sure if I’d say it was strong enough for evening/event wear though so a little less versatile. Although the name is not completely up my street, I really love how funky and different the bottle is and I’d love to try a few more of the Missguided Spring and Summer scents.
Givenchy Hot Couture // £49 for 30ml
I received a bottle of this perfume for my 13th birthday and have adored it ever since. It’s so strong and long-lasting that you only need a spray or two to keep you smelling wonderful for hours. I’m a sucker for sweet scents and I’d say this was prominently raspberry. It also has magnolia in it, too giving it creamier undertones so it isn’t too sickly sweet. Although it does remind me of being in my teens, it brings back a nice nostalgia and I still think it’s more than suitable to wear at my age. I definitely wouldn’t say it was for you if you don’t like fruity and sweet perfumes, though.
Viktor And Rolf Flowerbomb Extreme // £80 for 50ml
This is definitely one of my favourite evening Spring and Summer scents. It’s creamy, floral and sweet all at once. I would say it is a little too strong for the daytime as it’d be really overpowering. I first found this through my best friend Marika, as weird as this sounds she always smells SO nice and I especially loved this when she wore it so I had to steal the scent for myself. I’m not actually sure if you can buy this perfume anymore, I luckily managed to pick this up back when I worked for The Body Shop as we got a massive discount on quite a few different brands at the time. I’m honestly savouring every drop of it as I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to get it again!
Paco Robanne Olympéa // £62.50 for 50ml
My absolute favourite. I honestly cannot get enough of this perfume! It’s described as an oriental scent which I guess I’d say is about right. It’s floral, it’s sweet but also contains a hint of spice and musk. I’ve been wearing this for about 3 years now and ALWAYS wear it for special occasions with the lotion underneath to enhance the longevity and strength of it. It can be pretty pricey but I honestly think it’s worth it. It also lasts forever so if you spray it on your coat/scarf/something you wear quite a few times before washing, be prepared to smell of it for a very long time (definitely not a bad thing).
