Summer Scents: Best Perfumes for the Big Day
10 July 2017
We've done the research for you to provide a bit of scent-spiration. Here are five of our favourites for summer...
One of the most fun activities when it comes to getting big-day ready is to choose your perfume. Whether it's your staple scent, a new perfume especially for the occasion or perhaps your "something borrowed" it's an excuse to go shopping with your best friends, make a day of it, buy lunch and leave with the perfect perfume packaged up ready for the big day.
Chanel Chance, Eau Vivre
Chanel Chance is an absolute classic but the newest edition that came out the summer before last is Eau Vivre. A zesty fragrance with notes of Grapefruit and Blood Orange and a Jasmine heart make this a light and floral yet heady number.
Dolce & Gabbana, Velvet Cypress
The latest perfume from the Italian fashion house, Velvet Cypress is reminiscent of fragrant Cypress groves. With notes of Bergamot, Lemon and Cedar, it has the most magnificent scent, bottling the magic of the Mediterranean.
Viktor & Rolf, Flowerbomb
This one has been around a while but has made our top five because it's simply that beautiful. One for those who love a floral scent (the hint is in the name). With top notes of Mandarin, Bergamot, Pink Pepper and Saffron, heart notes of Rose, Jasmine and Olive and base notes of Amber, Vanilla and Patchouli, this addictive scent is sensational.
Jo Malone, White Jasmine and Mint
Jo Malone is a wonderful treat for your wedding day (and an excuse to explore the boutiques outside of Cornwall). All of her scents are divine but our favourite has to be the White Jasmine and Mint. A classic floral scent with a unique edge due to the mint, it's effortless, memorable and delicious.
Gucci Flora Garden Collection, Gorgeous Gardenia
The Flora Garden Collection has five show-stopping scents inspired by the five most important blossoms on the iconic Gucci scarf designed by Vittorio Accornero for Princess Grace of Monaco. Gorgeous Gardenia is our favourite of the five! Feminine yet sultry with top notes of red berries and pear, heart notes of white gardenia and frangipani flower and base notes of patchouli, this fragrance is both strong and graceful in equal measure.
