My Top 3 - Summer Scents

Hi all!

Dare I say that the weather seems to be getting better, the sun's out, the rain has stopped chucking it down...and maybe summer might finally be on the way. Well I blooming hope so, its May!

So I thought I'd tell you all about my top summer fragrances. Now I really don't go by the 'unwritten rule' that you wear fresh light fragrances in the summer. I wear what I like whether it's strong and musky or light and fresh, it doesn't really matter to me as long as I smell nice! ;-)

So these are my picks for my fav summer scents....

Flora by Gucci edp

If I had a sentence to describe this I would say...'it smells like summer in a bottle', and I really mean that. It's an amazing strong floral fragrance which has fantastic lasting power and really lifts my mood when I wear it.
It has notes of rose, mandarin and sandalwood and is described as a floral scent with a defiant femininity, much like the iconic floral print on the packaging, which was originally created for Grace Kelly, so it must be good! lol

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue - Dreaming in Portofino edt

This is a new fragrance but ever since smelling it I've fallen in love with it, and its more in keeping with the typical 'summer scent'. It's a more floral version of the classic D&G Light Blue but still fresh, and I prefer it a lot more compared to its classic counterpart.

It has notes of white rose, lemon and musk and is described at an alluring yet refreshing fragrance. The only negative about this is that it doesn't last very long which means you have to top up more regularly but since it smells so good I'll let that go! ;-)

Now bare in mind this is a limited edition summer fragrance and won't be around for long so I suggest going and smelling it because it really is great!

Chanel Chance eau Tendre edt

This is one of my favourite Chanel fragrances, and its essentially a floral/fruity interpretation of the original Chance edp. I love that's its lighter and sweeter than the original chance and its such a young girly fragrance perfect for summer. And I have to say that even though its an edt it lasts really well on me.

It has notes of grapefruit, hyacinth, jasmine and white musk, and is designed for the optimistic woman who believes in happiness and holds on to chance.

What do you think of my top picks? What are your favourites for summer?
