Every season a new set of fragrances hit the market.Unlike winter which demands the use of perfumes with heavy & strong smell, in summers lighter versions should be preferred. One option is to use the lighter version of your classical perfume, Eau de Toilette. But if you are looking for a new fragrance let me tell you which ones have caught my attention. I've read the magazines, sniffed the perfumes & given them a test run & here are a couple of my favourites.
Stella Sheer: Sheer Summer by Stella McCartney is a new version of the original Stella fragrance that lets soft summer shadows reflect the delicacy of fresh rose petals. The elegant bottle design mirrors the sophisticated, light-hearted spirit of the scent. The style is free, soft, lovely. This is the "it" perfume of the summer. ($58)
L'Eau d'Issey Summer Limited Edition Bottle : L'Eau d'Issey awakens a feeling of total beauty—it is a pure floral with musky and woody tones. This complex fragrance is made up of a wide range of floral scents including lotus, cyclamen, freesia, carnations, white lilies, and hints of amber seed and musk. ($62)
Burberry Classic Summer: Inside the bottle is a fragrance comprised of crisp fruits, delicate flowers, and cool woods, making it perfect for a hot summer's day.The style is refreshing, feminine and sensual. If you like the classical scents from Burberry you are going to love this lighter version. ($49)
Lily Pulitzer Wink: The fragrance unfolds with notes of sparkling pear nectar, watery pink freesia, and lush gardens, while a bouquet of rose, lily blossom, and sun-drenched violet reveals the scent's enchanting heart.This delightful floral captivates every Lilly Lover, whether she is shopping, lounging, or entertaining. Wear pink and make the boys wink! Afraid it was going to be to light I tried it for a couple of hours and you could still smell the beautiful scent. ($48)
Vera Wang Look Collection: Notes of Golden delicious Apple, Lily, Freesia, Jasmine, Vanilla,& others embraces a woman’s confidence and creates a seductive effect through complex textures and layers of fragrance notes. It is more on the stronger side but still light enough for summer. ($70)
And remember never rub the scent when applying it, because rubbing crushes the molecules of the fragrance & ruins the scent.
