“PERFUME IS LIKE A NEW DRESS, IT MAKES YOU QUITE SIMPLY MARVELOUS” – ESTEE LAUDER
Over the years I have developed a habit of changing my fragrances during spring/ summer time into something more fresh and subtle. I usually choose fragrances with a citrus base. This way no matter where I am I feel like I’m on holiday…
Every year, mid April I go shopping with an aim to try new fragrances, hunt for that special one that will stay with me till the end of the summer (or maybe even a bit longer).
This year I’ve chosen 3 fragrances… that I would love to tell you about.
I would also love to hear what fragrances you love to use during spring/summer time. Do you have one that you love to go back to or do you hunt for something new each year?
COACH – FLORAL
A floral fruity scent, both modern and joyful – Coach’s new fragrance is inspired by a luminous Spring day wandering in an American prairie. Top notes of Pineapple Sorbet and Citrus Coeur creates a sparkling impression, followed by a floral heart of Peony and Jasmin Sambaac. The dry down reveals the enveloping and elegant Crystal Musks & Creamy Wood base. It’s such a happy fragrance.
The bottle is beautifully adorned with a soft pink floral hangtag, reminiscent of the brand’s Tea Rose flower appliqués. The turn lock and metal tag have been redressed in rose gold, for a feminine and tender look.
MORESQUE – FIORE DI PORTOFINO
Inspired by the enchanting Italian location Portofino. The bright fragrance is filled with the bays magic: the chromatic spell of its waters and the glistening horizon.
A bright, fresh, citrus fragrance
Top: Portofino Lemon, Neroli, Sicilian Orange, Italian Basil
Heart: Florentine Iris
Base: Amber and Musk
ELIE SAAB – IN WHITE EDP
In White is omnipresent at Elie Saab: From the bridal collection, haute couture, ready to wear and now perfume. The chic new floral-chypre fragrance evokes modernity, class and elegance. Perfumers Francis Kurkdjian and Jerome Di Marino have brought a new and modern vision to the line by playing an addictive symphony of white vibrations. The scent opens with a bloom of delicate White Flowers followed by a plump heart of Orange Blossom and Solar Jasmine which is tinged with red fruity notes, the base creates a rich trail consisting of an addictive White Amber, Patchouli and White Musks.
Let me know which one you like, and which one would you like to try.
