Four Very Different Summer Fragrances to Try

Four Very Different Summer Fragrances to Try

As it is now officially Summer you may be on the look out for a new fragrance to couple with what I am hoping will be warmer weather? The good news is that the choices of lighter fragrances for such season are somewhat in abundance at the moment. There truly is something for everyone even if you fancy something a little unusual - a sea salt fragrance anyone?

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche is somewhat a Summer staple for me and so many others, to say this has a cult following is an understatement. Around three years ago this used to sell out instantly, luckily the stock seems to be more plentiful so we can all enjoy the tropical aroma. How would I describe Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche? Like the best sun soaked trip you can imagine bottled and yours to reminisce about forever. This creamy blend of Bergamot, warm Amber, Tiare Flower, Vanilla and creamy Coconut will have you dreaming of Pina Colada's, Coconut scented sun oil and more. It is a warm, fruit yet creamy scent that I dare you not to fall in love with. There is a reason why so many of us patiently wait on this to be launched year after year. You can find it via House of Fraser for £47/100ml - link.

Calvin Klein Eternity Summer 2015 reminds me of dusk - when you are just packing up after a long day spent at the beach and the air becomes a smidgen cooler. Admittedly this was a slow burner for me - the more I wear it, the more I enjoy it. Although not noted in the official scent pyramid (notes include light Peony and creamy sandalwood) I detect a citrus note - perhaps tangerine? If you are a fan of Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette and want something a smidgen deeper and warmer this is for you. A great scent for those who like long wearing yet delicate fragrances. You can find it here via Boots for £40.50/100ml - link.

So maybe you are not jetting off somewhere or perhaps you prefer the British (or anywhere for that matter) coastal line? Then may I suggest The Library of Fragrance Salt Air Cologne - a light, salty and of course aquatic scent. It is slightly rugged and reminds me of the cooler and more crisp trips to the beach rather than tropical holidays abroad. As this is a single note cologne it can of course be combined with other fragrance - I personally like to combine it with CK One 2015 Eau de Toilette come night fall for a deeper, more night time suited scent. For those wondering yes, The Library of Fragrance Salt Air Cologne is not worlds apart from Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne but not an outright dupe. You can find The Library of Fragrance Salt Air Cologne here for £15 - link.

What would Summer be without a bright, sweet fruity floral fragrance? Bland that is what. In my opinion the clear winner of this category has to be Marc Jacobs Daisy Sorbet Eau de Toilette. Not only is the bottle rather cute and dare say it collectable but the scent inside is rather heavenly too. If you are familiar with any of the past limited edition Marc Jacobs Daisy editions this juicy, bright uplifting fruity come floral concoction shall not disappoint. A blend of Pink Grapefruit, Pear, Passion Fruit, Jasmine Petals and Violet Wood. Despite being a light care free scent this wears well on the skin and is as ideal for a night on the tiles as it is a family BBQ or even a day at the office. You can find it via Boots £51.50/50ml - link.

  4. The fact that I've just done a fragrance clear out make me want to buy these even more! Normally I am a floral person fragrance wise but Eternity and Bronze Goddess sound amazing and the salt air scent is very intriguing as I really like Jo Malone sage and sea salt.

  5. I'm yet to actually smell Bronze Goddess (which probably makes me a bad beauty blogger) but I will definitely be trying it out next time I'm near an Estee Lauder stand, as it sounds amazing and there must be a reason why bloggers cant get enough of the stuff! My favourite summer scent is Chanel's Chance Eau de Tendre :) x

  8. You've smashed it with this post! I'm desperate for the Bronze Goddess, it sounds right up my street. I'm also super intrigued by the Library of Fragrance one. I've never found a scent from them that I've fallen in love with, but hopefully this is the one!

  9. I love the sound of the The Library of Fragrance Salt Air Cologne, and it is such a reasonable price. One of my favourite perfumes has to be the Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume, I haven't tried the sorbet one but I might have to get it for my summer holiday.

  12. I'm obsessed with the fruitiness of Daisy Sorbet at the moment. I'm still very tempted to get the D&G Light Blue mens version to wear after your recommendation!
