Picking a new perfume can be such a daunting task because often scents are linked with memories. I tend to go towards citrus, floral or woody earthy notes, but everyone is different, and you know which fragrance families you are instantly attracted to.
Our human connection to scents is intimate, so take your time to discover which scents make you happy or inspire you. Every perfume smells different on everyone, so I recommend spritzing yourself and allowing it time to settle to get a real sense of the new scent.
The weather has been dull and drab here in the UK, but here are two simple fragrances I will reach for all summer long, especially on rainy days to cheer me up!
Gucci Bamboo Eau de Parfum 30ml offers a woody, floral fragrance. A seductive, simmering scent that I find irresistible! The Art Deco-style adds a sensual, sleek finish.
Top Notes: Italian Bergamot, Orange Blossom
Heart Notes: Casablanca Lily, Ylang-Ylang
Base Notes: Deep Sandalwood, Tahitian Vanilla and Grey Amber
The scents uplifting citrus notes balance the sharp Italian Bergamot with sweet orange blossom. Strong woody notes make their way through the layers of perfume. These warming, earthy notes simmer on the skin as the fragrance continues to develop. This Gucci scent intensifies as the day goes on to suit every occasion.
I usually prefer a sweeter scent during the summertime, so this one is just ideal. Miu Miu Eau de Parfum 30ml gives a slightly more subtle floral fragrance that is sophisticated and unique. The youthful, colourful design captures the spirit of the brand in a striking, contemporary way.
Top notes – Lily of the Valley
Heart notes – Real jasmine & rose absolute
Base notes – Akigalawood Accord
The surprising fragrance combinations feel natural and timeless. Summer is looking to be rather grey, but at least there is a way to insert a few bright colours! I love this bottle design; it’s so distinct from the other bottles in my collection and looks great on my dressing table. A bold and beautiful perfume in every way for summer. Mui Mui suits both day and night occasions. If you are a fan of sweeter, floral aromas that are also warm and woody, then this is the one for you.
