If you love fragrances like me then you must have a few scents for every season of the year. Now that we are enjoying summer weather I have pulled out my fresh summer scents but there are three main only that I simply cannot stop using!
For my summer fragrances, I tend to enjoy something that is refreshing, a little citrus, and some floral notes. I tend to stay away from extremely sweet scents especially during the day when it’s humid.
Here are my MUST HAVE top 3 picks for summer freshness that lasts all day long!.
BYREDO - BAL D'AFRIQUR
- African marigold
- Jasmine petals
- Black amber
- Moroccan cedarwood
This fragrance is extremely unique in not only the name but also notes and actual scent!
It opens very fresh and citrusy with the notes of bergamot and neroli being pretty predominant. It quickly starts to develop and the jasmine petals become the star of the show for some time. The uniqueness of this scent makes it really hard to describe it in words but on my skin, it comes off super fresh, airly and the musk lingers all day. It smells elegant yet casual and appropriate for a wide range of settings.
I have received compliments while wearing this scent on many occasions which tells me it projects very well, but I’ll be honest and say that I do like to overspray this scent (5-8 sprays)
PRADA - LE FEMME
I absolutely LOVE this fragrance and cannot stop myself from wearing it all the time! This is the ultimate fresh, clean, just out of the shower type of scent but with the most elegant, expensive vibe.
Every time I wear this scent it reminds me of an amazing hair conditioner but I say in the right ways.
The tuberose note is not extremely heavy therefore not making this scent feel outdated and the vanilla is a nice soft note that doesn’t come across too sweet. It’s a perfect balance of notes that truly can be warn all year round but especially perfect for summer.
Fresh, elegant, classy is how I like to describe this scent.
CHANEL - CHANCE EAU TENDRE
- White musk
I will be honest and say that I’m not a huge fan of many Chanel fragrances and I didn’t think I would love this one as much as I do BUT….I was quickly become one of my go to everyday scents!
Extremely citrusy and bright in the opening and literally has a summer breeze vibe.
I love when fragrances have the note of Jasmine and this one didn’t fall short as on my skin this note pulls beautifully.
Chanel chance eau tendre is one of those no brainer type of scents when you just to smell clean and fresh. It’s very casual yet elegant at the same time. When I smell this scent I think of a nice crisp white shirt, light blue jeans, simple hells or even white sneakers and I’m off to brunch!
