Now that Spring has sprung, the sun is shining and the flowers are well and truly blooming it is time to change over our fragrance wardrobes and bring out the lighter & brighter floral and citrus scents and put away the heady woods perfumes of winter.
 
To help inspire you I’ve featured 7 scent-sational Spring and Summer fragrances in this post. Some of these are new fragrances only recently launched, others are old favourites and well loved classics. All of them are perfect for the Spring and Summer seasons!

The two categories of fragrances most associated with Spring and Summer are:
  • Florals – this is of course the most obvious and completely quintessential Spring fragrance category, and
  • Citrus – the fresh crisp citrus scents come into their own in the warmer months, especially Summer!

As inspiration I have listed below a selection of my favourite floral and citrus fragrances. In the comments below I’d be interested to hear which additional floral and citrus fragrances are your favourites.

Daisy By Marc Jacobs
All the Daisy fragrances are perfect floral scents for Spring and Summer. I mean just look at the bottle lids of these fragrances! You can’t get a more Spring themed fragrance bottle than these!

My favourite fragrance from the Daisy range is still the original Daisy. In addition to being a floral, it is also a crisp, citrus fruity fragrance, perfect for summer too. 

The top notes of strawberry, violet and ruby red grapefruit make a wonderful fresh impact. This is followed up with base notes of musk, vanilla and white woods, balancing out tones of gardenia and jasmine.

There is a limited edition set of Daisy fragrance coming out in holiday packaging in early November 2016 consisting of three metallic hued bottles of red, gold and pink! So keep an eye out for these. I love metallics and these will look amazing!

Alternatively if you want to try more than one variety of Daisy, you can purchase the 4 set of Daisy Minatures including Daisy, Daisy Eau So Fresh, Daisy Delight & Daisy Eau So Fresh Delight HERE. These mini bottles are just the cutest ever! 

These mini bottles make an affordable yet totally luxurious gift that is always happily received! I buy these mini sets of four and then give individual mini bottles as Christmas gifts to teachers and work colleagues.

Roses de Chloe

Another beautiful and feminine floral fragrance perfect for the warmer seasons is Roses de Chloe.

The rose notes of this fragrance are incredibly fresh and not at all heavy like some rose fragrances can be. The top note is a gorgeous rose scent with the added freshness of bergamot, which is gradually joined by a heart of damascena rose essence, modernized with a magnolia accord. On the skin this fragrance leaves a lovely trail of white musk and amber, a signature of the Chloe house. 

I’m totally in love with this fragrance! 

Amazing Grace 20th Anniversary EDT by philosophy

Created to celebrate philosophy’s 20th year anniversary, this clean and beautiful feminine fragrance is an irresistible blend of freesia, muguet and jasmine blossoms. These florals are highlighted with clean citrus notes of bergamot, grapefruit and mandarin. This is accented by fresh greens, passionfruit and a classic long lasting musk.

Viva La Juicy By Juicy Couture

Viva La Juicy is another old Spring and Summer favourite fragrance of mine. A lot of you are probably already familiar with it’s crisp fragrance which opens with notes of mandarin and wild berries before floral mid notes of honeysuckle, jasmine petals and gardenia take over. This scent finishes with dry base notes of amber, caramel woods, vanilla, sandalwood and praline.

Versace Eros Pour Femme 
Versace Eros Pour Femme is a bright and sexy feminine fragrance without being overpowering. It’s one of my all time favourite Summer evening fragrances. It has citrus top notes of Sicilian lemon, bergamot and pomegranate, middle notes of lemon flower, jasmine absolute, jasmine infusion and peony, and base notes of sandalwood, ambrox, musk and sensual woods.

Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey EDT is a pure, sensual scent that contains only the notes of white flowers. The fresh scent features top notes of freesia, cyclamen and rose water, and has a floral heart of peony and white lily with carnation. The base notes consist of osmanthus, ambrette, musk, tuburose and precious woods.
 
The romantic in me also loves the symbolism of the glass and steel bottle which is designed to represent the full moon above the Eiffel Tower.

I have blogged about my love for this fragrance previously and this is my third bottle of Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey! This is one of the fragrances that I would consider to be my signature scent. It has given me confidence on many an important occasion!

Roberto Cavalli Paradiso Azzuro
This Roberto Cavalli Paradiso Azzuro fragrance launched earlier this year and was inspired by the Mediterranean coastal Summer breeze. 
 
It blends soft and delicate notes of dewy flowers with a bright aromatic counterpoint, evoking the caressing sea breeze. It’s an evocative fragrance with a unique tale of seduction. It’s the perfect Summer fragrance in my opinion. 
 
The fragrance opens with a touch of sparkling zesty citrus and bergamot, mingled with lavender top notes. This is followed by a floral heart of jasmine petals. The base notes of cypress wood and cashmere offer a warm and luxurious dimension with a mezmorising lasting trail. 
 
I strongly recommend spritzing this fragrance in store but beware you will probably fall totally in love with it. It is truly divine and perfect for Summer!

I’m also loving it’s stunning diamond shaped bottle. It reminds me of the blue ocean with the sun sparkling on it thanks to it’s beautiful vibrant blue colour topped with the multi faceted gem of a lid! Isn’t it beautiful!

  1. I used to wear Issey Miyake all the time! But I think I want to get a bottle of my name's sake – Amazing Grace. A friend wore it once and I completely fell in love!

  2. I tend to wear my perfumes year-round but most of the scents I have are spring/summer "type" ones anyway. I keep hearing such good things about Marc Jacobs Daisy and it sounds lovely, I really need to try it next time I'm in store!

  3. I haven't been able to wear much perfume at all since I first became pregnant more than six years ago! It brings back morning sickness memories. I can still get away with Very Irresistible Givenchy though 🙂 #teamIBOT

  4. I have some old faves I've been wearing for ages. When I used to travel o/s for work (in 90s and early 2000s) I used to stock up when I travelled but that was a LONG LONG time ago. I love Jean Paul Gaultier (the ones in the shape of a woman), Chanel No. 5, Opium, Poison Hypnotic and I used to love Fendi.

  5. I'm a big fan of the original Chloé, she's timeless & having her in a rollerball size is handy. Wasn't a fan of the Roses version though. Really want to nab a bottle of Viva la Juicy (+ the Noir & Rose versions too), but I need to finish more from my stash first before I shell out the cash! Also got my eye on Paco Rabanne's Olympea – still kicking myself for not buying a full sized bottle duty free when I had the chance.

  6. I can't go past a bit of Daisy! I hedged my bets and got the mini rollerball set at Christmas. They're perfect for travelling or for adding some scent when you're on the go, and with four different "Daisies" I'm positively spoilt for choice!
