I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite Summer scents.  I seem to amassed quite a collection of perfumes, some I keep for special occasions as it reminds me of a specific day like my perfume from my wedding day and some are more suited to evening as they have a warmer, richer scent to them. I like to switch up my fragrances for warmer weather and for Summer I love a fresher and more fruity fragrance. These are the five I'm wearing right now.

First up is Jo Malone's English Pear & Freesia cologne.

This scent is a rich floral scent mixed with the scent of pear which is a warm fruity scent. If you read my Jo Malone Fragrance post you'll know that you all the Jo Malone fragrances are designed to be combined and mixed to create your own scent and I was sent this one to try mixing with Nectarine and Honey Blossom which is a lighter fruity scent, but recently I'm loving wearing just the Pear & Freesia on its own.

As always Jo Malone fragrances are such good quliaty that a little goes a long way and it really does last. Plus of course they have packaging to die for.

I wanted to try a Chanel fragrance for ages and originally I had my eye on Coco Mademoiselle but I'll be 100% honest the price put me off for the size of the bottle I wanted (100ml) then at the airport on the way back from holiday I smelt Chanel Chance and really loved it. The bottle is so simple and cute even in a smaller size and the scent I have Chanel Chance Eau Vive is really fruity and fresh with notes of grapefruit and orange.


Its a perfect Summer daytime fragrance and lasts pretty well too.

I'll be honest I quite often choose fragrances based on how pretty the bottle is and Nina by Nina Ricci has to be one of the prettiest bottles out there. Shaped like an apple with silver leaves this bottle looks stunning on your dressing table. It has quite a sweet fragrance with lemon and lime as well as notes of Peony and praline its honestly one of my favourites.

A brand new addition to my Summer fragrance collection is Clean Reserve scent Citron Fig. Clean Reserve is a collection of fragrances from the brand Clean and all ingredients are responsibly sourced as well as featuring eco friendly packaging  like wooden lids. I love the packaging how simple and modern it is. The Citron Fig scent is lovely, very fresh with notes of lemon and mandarin as well as a spiciness from fragrances of cardamon and ginger. Its really different and I like it for a Summer evening scent.


You'll find Clean Reserve scents at Space NK and Sephora.

Number 5 in my five favourite Summer scents is Givency Live Irresistible Eau de Toilette.

This is literally one of my favourite Summer perfumes. I love the bottle, its so pretty (pink is always a winner) and I really love the studded effect sides. The fragrance is really crisp and sparkling. A lot of fragrance descriptions use that term but honestly this perfume really is. Its fruity with apple, raspberry and pear in there and then rose too which adds a floral note.

Its my first ever Givenchy fragrance and its really pretty and perfect for Summer.
