Five Wonderful Scents Perfect for Summer
Ad | Affiliate links

I love the transition of seasons. It brings along with it changes in natural scenery, changes in our wardrobe and also changes in the fragrances we wear. While some people tend to stick to their signature scents others switch it up depending on the season. I belong to the latter category. You could call me a fragrance butterfly as I change my perfume frequently - it depends on the season, my mood, outfit etc. Heat causes fragrances to project farther afield while also evaporating faster. So, my pick for Summers are scents that are lighter and with citrus or floral notes because these project well in the summer heat. Although we have had the odd downpour over the last couple of days, warmer climes are still around with temperatures set to reach 28 deg C next week. To help you pick some Summer fragrances, I have rounded up five amazing scents that are perfect for the current season.

1. Hawaiian Tropic - Tropical Oasis Fragrance Mist, 250ml - £10.00

A deliciously scented fragrance mist that instantly transports you to the tropics. Imagine clear blue water, cool summer breeze, beauty of the tropics and sweet scent of the exotic - that is what this fragrance mist is all about. Infused with island coconut and raspberry sorbet, this lightly scented body mist is perfect for Summers. I love it. The top notes are nectarine, Island Coconut, pink passion fruit, raspberry sorbet while the heart is made up of jasmine, papaya and ylang ylang. The base notes are cotton flower, musk and sandalwood.

This sweet and refreshing scent can be picked up from Superdrug, Boots, The Perfume Shop and Beauty Base.

2. Ghost Sweetheart Forever EDT,  50ml - £38.00

Ghost describe Sweetheart forever as a captivating 'floriental' fragrance and that description is so apt. It is an 'Oriental Floral' fragrance with top notes of cassis, orange and lychee; middle notes of rose and white flowers and woody and oriental base notes (patchouli and vanilla). The EDT is floral and woody with a soft flowery accent as well. It is a very feminine and romantic scent and I love it. The lasting power is good and I also love the sleek and beautiful bottle. One of the best finds for this Summer.

You can purchase the EDT from Boots.

3. Mary Kay Eau So Cute, 30ml - £25.00

The creative and fun design of the bottle won me over even before I had tried the fragrance. Aptly named as Eau So Cute, this EDT from Mary Kay is a fun and floral scent that is ideal for Summer. With top notes of juicy pear, sweet almond blossom, Italian bergamot, Neroli, middle notes of freesia, pink peony, daisy, cyclamen and bottom notes of marshmallow musk, cedar wood, sandalwood - this one is a playful and 'pleasant' sweet fragrance. It is not over powering but has a juicy natural sweetness. A lovely scent for the younger girls out there, I feel.

4. IXXI Tonnelle Gourmande Fragrant Water, 30ml - EUR 20.40

This was another lovely find. IXXI Tonnelle Gourmande Fragrant Water contains 91% ingredients of natural origin and according to the brand is inspired by 'a delectable moment spent resting in the shade of fruit trees'. It is a very natural and delicately sweet and fruity fragrance. For a fragrant water its staying power is good as is the projection.  The top notes are lemon, fig and blackcurrant while the middle notes are freesia, violet and rose. The base notes are made of coconut, ambergris and white musk. I love to spray this on right after a bath and it sort of transports me into the lap of nature with its natural, fresh-sweet combination.

If you enjoy delicate floral and fruity accords, then this fragrant water is for you. You can order the fragrance from

5. The Bluebeards Revenge Eau De Toilette, 100ml - £19.99

Completing the roundup is a refreshing EDT for men from The Bluebeards Revenge. Presented in a lovely blue bottle, this one is a pleasant, clean and fresh fragrance that has good lasting power and projection. The fragrance opens with ozone notes accented by Sicilian bergamot and Liguria basil. The heart features a rich blend of jasmine, black tea and water mint, while the base notes include Madagascar vanilla, sandalwood and patchouli along with oak moss and musk. It is a cool and refreshing scent, one that Mr.H loves and recommends. The dry down is very pleasant and masculine and Mr.H feels that the EDT is ideal for a nice hot Summer day.
