I’ve been mulling over what my next shopping spree will be focussed on. It hasn’t excaped my notice that it’s pay day this week and as the sun is out it’s making me think of summer. It might be time to buy a summery fragrance and I was thinking about trying out some of these.
1. L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette
This floral and fruity Eau de Toilette will transport you to the cherry tree-dotted hillsides of southern France with its delicate and fresh scent. A feminine fragrance, made with a cherry extract from the Luberon region of Provence. Indulge your senses with notes of freesia, cherry and lily of the valley, underlined by a base of amber and lingering musk.
Thinking of cherry blossom reminds me of the Cherry Blossom Parade that is held each year in Washington DC when the trees ( a gift from the Japanese) come into flower. Magical.
It costs £39 and you can buy it here.
2. Kenzo Flower In The Air Eau de Parfum
Kenzo has a new dream for its emblematic flower. Beyond telling the poetic story of a flower in the city, Kenzo changes perspective and goes further and higher. Kenzo dreams of lightness, absolute freedom and starts a new chapter, with a new perfume for its poppy. What if the poppy, previously planted in the city, could now rise into the air? It would blossom the sky.
Sounds dreamy and otherworldly. It costs £56.00 – £77.50 and you can buy it here.
3. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum
V&R Flowerbomb eau de parfum comes in 50ml and 100ml. Smells like 1,000 flowers in a bottle, full-bodied and opulent. It explodes in a bouquet of sensations with its addictive floral notes which leave their trail, like a whirlwind that’s distinctly couture. Key notes: centrifolia rose, Indian osmanthus, catleya orchid and sambac jasmine.
Exploding flowers?! Is that what summer should feel like? You can get that feeling here for £48.50 – £89.50
4. Vera Wang Lovestruck Floral Rush Eau de Parfum
The prequel to the Lovestruck story, Floral Rush is fueled by enchantment and the possibility of love at first sight. The rush of adrenaline when curiosity strikes. With a glance from a stranger, there is unlimited potential of where it will all lead. fragrance sparkling. captivating. unforgettable. The fragrance is a sparkling floral bouquet that blooms with instant attraction. You will fall head over heels with notes of mouthwatering champagne accord and apricot blossom. The heart beats a little faster with a rich layer of pink passion flower, and a lasting impression is left.
I’ve bought several Vera Wang fragrances over the years always as a bit of a guilt pleasure as I’m sure the target demographic is much younger than mine. Still who cares! this one is full of summer promise and fun and it’s on my list! You can find it here for £19,99
Ans last on my list today:
