Fresh, Fruity or Floral? The Summer fragrances which inspire us at allbeauty

May marks the start of flower show season, so what better time of year is there to explore and embrace the world of fresh, fruity and floral scents? Read on to discover more about the summer fragrances which inspire us at allbeauty.

 

Floral

Penhaligon’s Blasted BloomCreated as an ode to the British coast and countryside, Penhaligon’s Blasted Bloom is a unique blend of wild berries, eglantine rose, hawthorn, pink pepper, as well as some aquatic notes. It’s the perfect scent for an English rose and a topical fragrance to wear for Summer weddings, garden parties and of course, Chelsea Flower Show.

Looking for a regal floral for men? Try Penhaligon’s Esprit Du Roi for an unusual twist on a summer floral, incorporating tomato, mint and raspberry leaves with clove, jasmine and honeysuckle.

 

Fruity

Les Sorbets by Nina Ricci

The new range of limited edition Les Sorbets by Nina Ricci looks so delicious, we couldn’t pick just one to feature! These pastel confections launched earlier this year as part of a collaboration with Amorino ice cream. Each edition has been created by a different perfumer and contain sweet straplines such as Cocktail Frappé, Pear Granita, and Praline Glacé. We think they’d make the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon tea with friends (ice cream optional!)

Did you know? Amorino have released their own raspberry and jasmine sorbet to commemorate the fragrance range (available at selected Amorino ice cream locations until 30 June 2019).

Another exciting fruity launch for Summer 2019 is Paco Rabanne’s irresistible Olympéa Legend, which combines desert-flower and hot sand with salty-vanilla plum. This fragrance for women builds upon the Olympéa range of fragrances and is paired with Invictus Legend, a powerful grapefruit, sea salt and geranium fragrance for men.

Fresh

Christian Dior - Dior Addict Eau FraicheChristian Dior’s Dior Addict Eau Fraiche, is a favourite at allbeauty, featuring calabrian bergamot, freesia and lily-of-the-valley.

Lily-of-the-valley, also known as Muguet, was a treasured motif of Christian Dior. As well as featuring extensively in his fragrances and designs, he also used to give a sprig of the flower on the 1st May (as per French custom) to wish luck and happiness to all his workforce and clientele for the year ahead!

Perfect for: Paying homage to the stars of Cannes Film Festival – Kirsten Dunst wore a Christian Dior Lily-of-the-valley dress in 2016 when going up the famous Cannes steps.

 

Light & Airy

Calvin Klein Eternity AirCalvin Klein’s Eternity Air comes in two editions for men and women, both of which are light and citrus, so suitable for those who like a softer fragrance in the summer months. As you can tell by the name, these fragrances are designed to complement each other and are inspired by blue skies and fresh atmospheres. Eternity Air for Women features grapefruit oil, peony and lily of the valley, whilst Eternity Air for Men includes mandarin oil, lavender, green apple and violet.

Marc Jacob’s Daisy Dream Sunshine is a great carefree scent for summer days. Launched in January 2019 as a limited edition, this fragrance features a combination of golden raspberries, orange blossoms and solar musk, which collide together in a sparkling cocktail of whimsical happiness.

Water

 Creed Virgin Island WaterStuck at your desk and need to be transported to St Tropez, Portofino or Hawaii? The following fragrances have all been inspired by the feeling of exploration, freedom and azure waters.

The formulation of Creed’s Virgin Island Water was inspired by a sailing trip to the Caribbean – its adventurous and refreshing notes include lime, copra, hibiscus, ylang ylang and ginger. Suitable for both men and women, it really captures the essence of summer and will help you to feel like the sun is shining down on you in a tropical climate!

Moschino Forever Sailing is another ocean favourite – a fragrance designed for men; lemon, grapefruit and ice mint are combined with juniper and patchouli to emphasise fun, excitement and the power of nature.

Allbeauty’s Top Seasonal Fragrance Tips

  1. Wearing a scent that it is evocative of summer can help you get into the holiday spirit.
  2. Heat & rising temperatures can intensify the sense of smell, which is why switching heavier ‘Winter’ scents for lighter ones can help you feel more energetic
  3. Don’t leave your perfume in the sun (or near hot temperatures – this includes your bathroom), as this can shorten the perfume’s lifespan.
  4. Headed to a festival or on a summer vacation which requires travel? Take a look at allbeauty’s range of Travalo Atomisers, perfect for decanting your favourite fragrance from glass bottles and taking with you on the go.
  5. You can make new fragrance discoveries by using the allbeauty Fragrance Finder to filter perfumes by category.
