Spring/Summer perfumes (part one)

It may still be cold and grey outside, but seeing as we are well into May, I thought it was about time I shared a few of my favourite Spring/Summer perfumes:

L'occitane spring cherry, The Body Shop pink grapefruit EDT, L'artisan Caligna

Starting with L'occitane spring cherry, and I must admit it was the pretty pink bottle which first attracted me to this perfume. Scent wise, the perfume starts off with light notes of mandarin, blackcurrent and cherry, before revealing it's smokier base notes of wood and musk. For me, this perfume brings back memories of the first few days of spring, and I think it's a good choice of you want something that's not too sweet, but still light and fresh enough for the hot summer months.

Next up is the new Pink grapefruit EDT from The body shop. Now The body shop are famous for their fruity scents and I think this perfume compliments the existing range beautifully. As you'd expect, it's very zesty and fresh, with just a touch of citrus throw in for good measure too. Being an EDT, it's not the most long lasting of perfumes, but at £8.50, I think it's a real bargain, and the small compact bottle means it's perfect for throwing into my handbag and freshing up during the day.

Finally, something a little different with L'artisan Caligna, which contains notes of sage, rose bud, mandarin tree leaves, pine needles and oak chips. Compared to the other 2 scents, it's got more of a luxe feel, and with such green notes, it really does evoke memories of countryside walks and gentle summer breezes. Definitely one to consider if you want something that's clean, fresh and easy to wear during the day.

So there you have it, 3 of my favourite Spring/Summer perfumes. Don't forget to check back for part 2, which will be up later this week.

Have you tried any of the perfumes above? What's your favourite Spring/Summer scent?

  1. I love L'Occitane perfumes! They always seem to smell so beautiful.

    I think my favourite spring/summer scent has to be Daisy by Marc Jacobs Eau So Fresh or The Body Shop Neroli Jasmine although they discontinued it, I have a little back up of them xx
