It’s soon to be the start of summer, and this normally means our wardrobes and beauty products get revamped and we begin to look forward to some sun. Some people also like to switch up their fragrances for the new season. Here’s a few scents we recommend.
Launching at the end of the month with John Lewis, we have Arizona Bloom by Floral Street. This is a dry floral amber scent with ingredients that can help to energise. It is inspired by arid wilderness, neon skies, eternal sunshine, and the growing trend in wellness. It comes in 50ml but also available in 10ml, which is perfect for travelling or handbags.
Yardley London has an Opulent Rose fragrance. Rosewater has some great benefits; such as it’s highly moisturising so isn’t heavy on the skin. It contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which is great for our current climate and great for soothing skin conditions. And finally, it’s a classic refreshing scent that can be worn all day and suitable for any occasion. June’s birth flower is a Rose, so it’s only right to start summer off smelling like one.
If you’re really wanting to splash the cash you can indulge in Jo Malone’s Spring/Summer Blossoms collection. The collection includes two new scents Yuja and Waterlily, which explore a contrast between citrus fruits and radiant white waterlilies. There are four scents all together, individually priced at £52 for 30ml and £104 for 100ml.
As Father’s day is approaching you may want to buy for your dad or the father figure in your life a new summer smelling aftershave. They always make a good gift!
First up, we have Salvatore Ferrgamo Ferragmo. With hints of vibrant bergamot and lemon alongside sage, it combines floral yet metallic notes of a violet accord. This aftershave is great to capture that citrus smelling holiday just from a bottle. It’s priced at £54 and available at The Fragrance Shop.
For a refreshing breath of the scented Medditteranean breeze Acqua Neroli by Clean Reserve is just that. It’s a citrus floral fragrance again perfect for summer. The unexpected contrast of jasmine flowers lifted by bergamot combined with exotic sandalwood and the zesty fragrance of neroli blossoms. The product also uses only responsibly sourced ingredients and eco-friendly packaging.
Mother and daughter duo at Vintage & Bespoke has created a long-lasting flower diffuser which actually “blooms” and opens up as a flower would. They have their own archive of thousands of antique bottles, where each is unique. Once purchased the bottle and flower diffuser you then only need to buy the bottle of fragrance for refills, the flower will last for about 10-12 months. Out of their eight fragrances, the five scents English Rhubarb, Fig Vetiver, Gin and Tonic, Oriental Jasmine and Tea Rose are the best suited floral and sweet smells for summer.
For a room spray you can try the beautifully packaged Emporium Classics Collection in the scents Bohemienne and Lychee Flower by MOR. These room sprays transform your room into a retreat and will also look stunning placed out for display. The Bohemienne spray will transcend you into a utopia of gypsy enchancment by its white jasmine, strawberry and orange tones. Whereas the Lychee Flower scent will transcend you into a perfumed paradise of ripe berries, sparkling sweet citrus and heady blossoms of rose and jasmine tones.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for a candle to freshen up your home we recommend Holistic London. Their renewable, eco-friendly soy wax is of the highest quality, making the aromas from them last much longer. They have a wellbeing trio set for £30, which includes three plant-based and cruelty-free candles, which deliver a comforting and stunning aromatherapy experience.
