Hi everyone, welcome back! I’ve been planning on this post for a while, hoping the weather would warm up, but once again, today is a cool, dreary, rainy day 😦 But I know the warm weather HAS to be on its way! So today I am sharing my favorite fragrances for spring and summer! When it comes to fragrance, I am usually drawn to woody scents that are more suitable for fall and winter, but I have three fragrances that I am obsessed with for summer season! All three are very different, and maybe this will help you if you are looking for a new scent!
Bobbi Brown “Beach” – This scent could not have been more perfectly named. It literally smells like a day at the beach. I know some people do not like this scent because it has a “suntan lotion” type of smell, but that is what I love! The main notes are: jasmine, sea spray, and mandarin. I just love this scent, and its perfect for a vacation, or just a hot summer day! This was the only scent I took on a recent vacation to Jamaica and it was perfect to spray on night and I smelled like I had just spent the day at the beach (which I had) 🙂
Clinique “Happy in Bloom” – This scent is very different than the first one. This is more of a floral (as the name implies). The notes are: Yellow Plum, Watery Green Notes, White Freesia. I love this scent because it is very clean and fresh with a little bit of floral. Perfect for a spring day and perfect for everyday wear.
Philosophy “Pure Grace Summer” – Now this one seems like it may be similar to Bobbi Brown “Beach”, but where that one smells like a “beach day”, this one captures more of a “summer day”. It is not sunscreen smelling, which some people may prefer. But you still get a slight hint of coconut mixed with almost a fruity and fresh smell. (This one is so hard to describe!). The notes are: Bergamot, Coconut Water, Citron Zest, Dune Rose, Cocoa Absolute, Solar Musk, Sandalwood, Vanilla.
So those are my three favorite scents for spring/summer! I know everybody has different tastes, but these are just some ideas if you are looking for a new fragrance! Another tip I want to point out is that if you are unsure of a scent, check to see if it comes in a rollerball or travel spray. I often buy scents in the rollerball if I want to try out a fragrance before splurging on the full size, or also because they are handing for your purse/travel bag. And also, lets be honest, how often do we go through a full size fragrance!?
I hope you enjoyed this post, have a great weekend!
