Summer Scents

I love perfume, and finding different scents for the different times of the year. When the weather starts getting a bit brighter and warmer, my perfume taste changes, to a lighter, more floral scent. I've picked out three that are my favourites for this time of year, to point you in the right direction if you're looking for a new scent for summer.

Tropical Cherimoya - Jo Malone
This was a perfume that I picked up last year at a bloggers' event for the launch of the summer Jo Malone collection. I'd never purchased a Jo Malone scent before, partly because I had no idea where to start, but when I smelt this one, I knew there was no way I was leaving without it. This is described as a fruity floral perfume, and you could not have described a better scent for me. It ticks all of the boxes. Cherimoya fruit, pear and passion fruit? Tick, tick, tick. It's a gorgeous fragrance, without being too sweet. Unfortunately, it was part of a limited collection, so I use it sparingly, but the Jo Malone collections are always great. I'd fully recommend keeping an eye on their summer launches to see what pops up.
Romance - Ralph Lauren 
This is a perfume that I wanted for the longest time, and saved hard to buy. It was purchased in the summertime - maybe that's why I associate it with this time of year - and I think the scents in the perfume are perfectly suited to the season. The guava, lotus flower and lilies could not be more summery if you ask me. The base note of musk is something I feel myself drawn to, so it was no surprise that it features here. It's such a favourite, I love reaching for it on a daily basis - it's great for a work day.
Tiffany & Co
Another perfume with a musky base - are you seeing the theme now? This is beautiful, another perfume I waited to buy because I loved it so much. The patchouli and musk base is similar to that of Romance, with the added loveliness of citrus and iris flower. This is another lovely perfume for everyday wear that isn't too overpowering and I love it. Plus the bottle is gorgeous!

So that's three summery scents that I'll be reaching for this season. I'd love to know your favourite fragrance for this time of year too!
