Wishlist | Spring/Summer Scents

As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, I'm sure a lot of us start to think about switching up our fragrance choices for Spring/Summer; I know I tend to favour lighter, fresher scents throughout the summer months! For the past few years I've actually mostly stuck with Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream in the summer and Armani Code in the winter, so I'm thinking about mixing things up a little bit this year. These are a few of the scents I've got my eye on...
Penhaligon's Scent Library, £18 (10 x 1.5ml)
Now I'll admit, these aren't all necessarily spring/summer scents; merely ones I like and would wear in the spring/summer. YSL Black Opium, for example, has notes including coffee, which might not be considered the most summery of scents; nonetheless, I love it! Lancôme's La Vie Est Belle is a beautiful scent, I've had a couple of sample vials and, despite florals not usually being my choice, I adored this with its notes of iris, jasmine, orange blossom & patchouli. I really want to try L'Occitane's fragrances and Arlésienne sounds really unusual, offering notes of rose, violet and saffron. Estée Lauder's Bronze Goddess is a summer classic which I've wanted to pick up for the last few years; the notes of bergamot, amber, vanilla and coconut sound absolutely gorgeous!

I had a sample vial of Lacoste's Eau de Lacoste Jaune and really enjoyed wearing it; it's quite a unisex fragrance but it really does smell like summer in a bottle. A lovely cheerful bright yellow bottle, at that. I've heard good things about Michael Kors's fragrances and Coral sounds just perfect for summer with notes of grapefruit, raspberry and sandalwood; I really love sweet and fruity scents so I'm dying to try this! And finally, the Penhaligon's Scent Library offers trial-size vials of ten of the brand's most popular fragrances; I love perfume testers as I think it's really important to get an idea of how a perfume settles on your skin and how well it wears, so I love the idea of this set.

Do you mix up your scents for the seasons? What are your spring/summer fragrances of choice?

  9. Some great choices here! I don't really mix and match perfumes too much based on seasons, mainly because I have about 40 full sized ones that I love! I do tend to wear the lighter ones more often in summer though. 😊
