Scents of the summer

Summer, sandy beaches, long days, the  distinctive smell of sunscreen, ah perfection! No wonder its my  favourite time of the year. I don't know if its just me, but for some reason in summer I always feel the weird desire to purchase perfume, I think it's the amazing duty free at the airport, damn you reasonable tax free prices! When I think of summer three perfumes spring to mind.... 

Vera Wang "Lovestruck" 
I bought this in the duty free at Heathrow airport, and you would not believe how much I love this. I know that you should buy a perfume because you fall in love with the smell, but have you seen how beautiful this bottle is? Just look at it it's stunning! The notes of this fragrance are pink guava, tuberose, mandarin and lotus  blossom. I'm not a perfume expert but don't these all sound delicious. I bought the 100ml super size of this perfume and I love it! For 100ml it costs £62.00 on

 Boss Orange Woman 
My darling little sister bought this for my birthday last year, and I love it. When I smell this summer I get transported to the beautiful Cornish coast, it's that amazing. I don't think that it's that long wearing, but when I wear this I feel so summery and feminine. That to me is the sign of a good perfume. This perfume includes notes of crispy apple, bergamot and white peach. This is a very sweet scent, that I think smells almost fruity. For the 50ml it costs £41.00 on 

Benefit Laugh With Me Lee Lee
I take this perfume with me everywhere because of the metal packaging, this makes it so easy to chuck in your bag and go (ok I don't chuck it I place it, but that doesn't sound the same)  I wore this everyday of my holiday in Malaysia and it reminds me of all those fantastic memories. This includes notes of jasmine, citrus and Lilly blossom. This is the most powerful out of the three and lasts the longest. For 30ml it is £29.30 on the benefit website. 

If you are looking for a new summer scents, I hope I have given you some ideas also if there are any you recommend I would love to know...

See you soon
