I adore introducing new fragrances as the seasons change, particularly in Summer when a certain scent will forever bring back memories of a special occasion or travel destination. (Bougainvillea and Magnolia always remind me of France and Italy, while citrus-y scents remind me of Spain…) There's something so delicious about spritzing perfume on warm skin before heading out for the evening. From daytime florals to heady evening scents, take your pick from my menu of six gorgeous new scents for Summer 2019. All can be picked up at usual perfumeries, department stores or duty free.
Boucheron Orange de Bahia
For a touch of true luxury, this citrus aromatic fragrance for women and men emanates Brazilian sunshine and is both zesty and sweet. An opening of orange and green mandarin essence leads on to notes of rose, fig leaf and amber woods.
With notes of blood orange and spicy lily, TOCCA Stella is both flirty and sensual. Resting on a base of sandalwood and sheer musk, this fragrance smells like warm Summer skin and works on any occasion, night or day. Plus you'll want to whip out that gorgeous bottle at every opportunity! This was my personal fave at a recent summer scents press event.
KENZO World Power
I adore the striking packaging of this woody aromatic fragrance with notes of cypress, sea salt and tonka bean. Part-inspired by Kenzo Fashion, World Power is modern and bold, with a complete absence of floral notes. This modern oriental is all about asserting your individuality, a celebration of the real you!
Jimmy Choo Floral
Choose a scent as stylish as your shoes (if you're lucky!) with this sophisticated perfume inspired by one of my favourite blossoms, Magnolia. (Italian and French Riviera, anyone?) This delicate feminine fragrance is floral, fruity and musky with notes of Bergamot, Nectarine, Magnolia and Blond Wood. The minty-pistachio green colour evokes all sorts of summery feelings and it’s one that all the beauty editors are raving about. I can understand why!
Coach Floral Blush
This little floral number comes in the prettiest packaging and would make a gorgeous gift for someone special - or a gift to self of course! Floral Blush has top notes of Goji Berry and Grapefruit with a Peony and Peach heart on a musk base.
Mont Blanc EXPLORER
Last but not least, one for the men. Montblanc EXPLORER is an energising woody aromatic scent, with fresh green Bergamot notes contrasted with Vetiver and Patchouli. Definitely one for an adventurous spirit, I chose this for my current squeeze this summer, so I get to spritz some on too! Well, ya know, boyfriends with benefits, right? 😊
