Soft Summer Scents

Summer is finally on its way! With the birds chirping, the sun peeping out and milder temperatures, it's time to step away from heavier scents in favour of fresh and light citrus and florals. Here are my current favourite perfumes for when I'm wanting a light and feminine scent.

Jimmy Choo
The Jimmy Choo fragrance has caused a stir since its launch in January, selling out in stores, causing queues and becoming the number one women's fragrance just one week after its roll out. If you're after luxury and style, the amber bottle influenced by Tamara Mellon's personal taste for antique and modern objects fits the bill nicely. With a blend of tiger orchid, sweet toffee and patchouli, this perfume is deliciously sweet and long lasting. 

Prices start at £39.00 for 40ml EDP

Mark Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh
Daisy Eau So Fresh is the whimsical new version of the original Daisy. With crisp raspberry, wild rose and deep, warm plum, this is a beautiful, light scent which I think I might prefer over the original Daisy. If you like girly, floral and fruity fragrances, this is a must have to see you through the Summer months.

Prices start at £48.00 for 75ml EDT

Ghost Enchanted Bloom 

Enchanted Bloom is dreamily romantic and floral, opening with fresh top notes of violet leaves, cranberry and bergamot. The gentle heart blends jasmine and waterlily which combine with the scent of freesia to create a long lasting feminine fragrance. As the perfume develops to its fullest, sweet peach caviar and warm amber create a lingering musk. Doesn't this just sound divine? It smells just as good and it's a lot more purse friendly than the other two!

Prices start at £23 for 30ml EDT
