Favourites: Spring/Summer Perfumes!

I’ve still been a little obsessed with perfumes recently and so I decided to pick out a few of my favourites for spring/summer, telling you just why I love them!

perfumes 1perfumes 2

Jo Malone Elderflower & Gooseberry – This LE perfume holds a special place in my collection as it smells identical to one of my Grandmas lipsticks (which I cherish and sniff occasionally as it reminds me of her – anyone else sentimental like this?).  This smells just divine, super summery, powdery and sweet.  I hope this stays around for a little longer because it’s just beautiful – sniff it if you can!

Miss Dior Cherie – I think this is my third bottle of this and it has been one of my favourite perfumes since I was 18.  I started wearing this after a friend bought it on holiday (a girly trip to Lanzarote) and ever since then it has been a smell that reminds me of holidays abroad!  This is such a beautiful, easy scent to wear and has fruity, sweet and woody notes! 

Kiehls Orange & Lychee – I have a little bit of an obsession with this perfume and can’t get enough of it. From the simple, almost clinical packaging to it’s sweet scent, I adore it.  This smells like summer in a bottle to me, with notes of honey, orange flower, lychees and rose.  This is another really powdery scent which I seem to love. 

Jo Loves Mango Nectar – I have reviewed this previously (here) and it is just the ideal spring/summer scent because it literally smells like freshly squeezed mango; it makes my mouth water!  You can’t go wrong with fruit in the summer months and I know this will go down a storm!

Now, I wrote this post out and then discovered another spring/summer fragrance will has headed straight into my top 5, which is Diptyque’s new floral fragrance – Eau Moheli which contains pink pepper (one of my person favs), ginger, incense, vetier and ylang-ylang; this smells nice in the bottle but really comes alive once sprayed on the skin.  Full review coming soon!

I’d absolutely love to hear what your favourite spring/summer perfumes are!  Please do leave a comment with your favourite and I’ll hunt then down and have a whiff!

What’re your fav spring/summer perfumes?

  4. I'm so tempted to buy a Jo Malone perfume for the Summer. I believe it's a nectarine one, but I like the one you have too!! Great post though, I'm hoping the Summer weather is here to stay! :) helloiammariam.com

  6. They sound amazing. I know Miss Dior and doesn't really go well with my natural scent (does that make sense?) but I'm really curious about Jo Loves Mango! I'm currently using Escada's summer limited edition (smells of cherry, can't remember the name haha). x

  9. My all time fav is D&G Light blue. Recently I fell in Love with Armani's Aqua di gioia & Valentino Aqua Floreale. This Mango perfume sounds great, I would love to smell, but it's not sold in our stores :/

  12. I looooove Miss Dior Cherie! Although I think it's been discontinued and the new Miss Dior EDP is slightly different and I don't think just as nice. Chancel Coco Mademoiselle is a pretty good alternative as well! As for summer scents, I also love Marc Jacobs Oh Lola! and Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess that everyone and their mum seems to be using now. It is lovely though!

  21. I am really picky about perfumes, but here are my favourites:
    - Miss Dior Cherie L'Eau - Fell in love with this when I was 19, still have the same bottle and wear it on the daytime when I want to smell fresh (this has citrus notes) but sophisticated, it's Dior after all. But this was reformulated as was Miss Dior Cherie Eau de Parfum! But I've heard there are two dupes for Miss Dior Cherie EdP, just google them. Unfortunately I can't even go smell them because I don't live in the UK and don't know if they're available elsewhere.
    - Calvin Klein Euphoria EdP - The best and only strong-ish, confident, sexy perfume I've found so far that I can't find anything wrong with. I wear it summer and winter, day and night as this has been my favourite fragrance for two years now. All my friends, men also (all in their early/mid-twenties) love this. I highly recommend it!
    - Chanel Chance Eau Tendre - I don't own this yet but want to buy it to wear on the days when I want to smell just a little bit more delicious than when wearing Miss Dior Cherie L'Eau. This is a real spring/summer scent, not too fresh, is pink in colour, obviously not overpovering but not too light as many summer scents tend to be. Check it out if yhou want to! :)
    - Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy - I don't own this but have worn it many times and what can I say, get compliments from men!

  23. Probably the only guy commenting on this lol but I know lots of women who like to wear men's colognes so I do think some will like my personal fav: it's Amando Sunburst (eau de toilette). Comes in a small black bottle with an orange color. Amando has multiple of these in various colors, but orange (Sunburst) is definitely the best out of all of them. I'm not joking when I say I regularly have women I don't know ask me which fragrance I'm using.
