It may be wetter than average this season but that still doesn’t mean your style, or summery scent, has to suffer…
This spring designers and perfumers were in their element creating a clash of citrus, fruity, floral and woody fragrances for all and dependant on your personal style there is something to suit everyone out there. So here’s just a few of the amazing new scents on the beauty scene.
Jo Malone (one of my personal fav’s) have brought out two new scents that clash a mix of fresh and fruity or citrus based notes. Their English Pear & Freesia and Nectarine Blossom & Honey are the perfect pick me ups for a full day out (as their longevity is divine) 100ml is £78 and 30ml is £39; www.jomalone.co.uk
The Perfume Shop is also another fab high street and online alternative and this season they are offering Marc Jacobs Daisy Sunshine EDT scent for £44.50 (50ml) with free standard delivery online or free gift wrap in store (what’s not to love there) – perfect for birthday treats and with Father’s Day nearly upon us it’s worth browsing online just for inspiration on other brands and scents.
For a mere £8.50 you can also pick up one of The Body Shop’s latest light, wearable scents; choose from 8 addictive notes that include Mango, Strawberry, Coconut, Grapefruit et al; a great way to start your 5 a day!
Catwalk creators Carven have also launched their brand new scent Le Parfum, £72 for 100ml, offering a gorgeous floral bouquet of White Hyacinth which is light and fresh and perfect for hot summer days; £38 for 30ml available from Harrods and Harrods.com.
Estée Lauder have also released their biggest fragrance for summer Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche (£45 for 100ml) which sprays a Caribbean inspired scent onto your body injecting notes of Coconut milk, Sandalwood and Vanilla reminiscent of high summer on tropical beaches and warm heat.
If you’re after something more zesty then why not try Superdry’s brand new range of neon perfumes; great for those who don’t like fanciful packaging and also enjoy something light, fresh and zingy (£35 for 40ml), plus the brand also sell a miniature pack for those who can’t decided or want to take all four scents on holiday (£29.50 for 4 x 25ml)!
Lastly Thierry Mugler has just launched two new limited edition fragrance aptly named Alien Aqua Chic and Angel Aqua Chic. Both derived from his original scents these new fragrances have been mixed in with fruity accords and aromatic water. Alien Aqua is energising and vibrant (with notes of Lemon Tree, Pink Grapefruit and Jasmine) whilst Angel Aqua is floral and juicy (with hints of Raspberry and Green Apple); both however are fabulous for an evening out on the town.
