Indulge in a Little Sweetness this Summer

  Summer is just around the corner and what better way to indulge in a little summer then a new scent?

  Some of you may feel its alright to wear the same scent all year long, and who's to stop you? But many people love to shop for a new one. Whether it be just a lighter one, floral, fruity or fresh smell. In the end, you just need something that is anything but heavy on the nose. We all have different top picks, but these here are mine.

Favourite summer scents 2013

1. Prada, Candy- Launched in Summer 2011. I have loved it since I first laid my hands on it and still can't get enough!! Top notes are Caramel, Vanilla, Musk and Benjoin. It really does smell just like CANDY!

2. Chanel, Chance Eau Fraiche- The perfect everyday "light and fresh" scent for summer. With top notes of Lemon and Cedar, you will always be smelling fresh!

3. Guerlain, La Petite Robe Noire- I have found that this is one of those fragrances that almost everyone loves. It is so different with both "black" and "pink" notes. Black being the spicier side and pink being the sweeter side.  It is so versatile, and it's my going out on the town/date night fragrance. Top notes are Bergamot, Almond, Sour Cherry and Red Berries. YUM!

4. Lancome, La Vie est Belle- Meaning: Life is Beautiful. This is also another one of those fragrances that almost everyone will love. But much more on the sweeter side then Guerlain's La Petite Robe Noire. Top notes are Iris, Patchouli and Gourmand.

5. Givenchy, Hot Couture- Honestly, who hasn't heard of or tried this fragrance yet? One of the most popular fragrances on the market. It will never go out of style! (Or at least not in my lifetime.) An oriental fruity fragrance with top notes of Raspberry Pearl, Transparent Jasmine and White Musk. This fragrance can be for sure worn all year long.

6. Balenciaga, L'eau Rose- New this year, A feminine floral fragrance. A mix between Blackberry musk and a traditional powdery rose-violet. With top notes of Blackberry, Violet, Rose, Patchouli, Cedar and Musk. Another great everyday wear for the summer!

  I hope this post kinda helps some of you who are debating on getting a summer fragrance! My advice; go smell around at Shoppers, Sephora, the Bay or Sears. Ask for help if you are unsure which fragrances would be considered "summer" ones. Spray the ones you like on a card, NOT all over you or you will go home smelling like a million different things! When you narrow it down to your two or three favourites, spray one on each wrist and one on your neck. Since every fragrance smells different on everyone (because of your bodies oils) you may not like it anymore after you try it! Don't just smell the fragrance on the card and buy it. This is one of the main reasons people will return fragrances! Walk around the store for a bit after spraying the ones you do like, and see if you like the scent still after it settles. Chances are you will love one and hate another you tried!
  Happy fragrance shopping! :)

  3. Hiii !! :) I'm Jenna & I just created my very first blog. I hadn't any1 to speak with yet and as I created a post on my perfume collection I wanted to ask you if you recommend buying the Prada Candy? I'm looking for a new perfume for my collection & I saw that one in my perfume ad. Is it good for summer?

    1. Hey Jenna, I checked out your blog and subscribed, great start! Prada candy is a perfume I think you can wear year long, and I have found a lot of ladies like. Although some may say it may be a bit heavy for summer months, I bag to defer. ;) hehe I like it because it lasts all day and your clothes will smell like it still after! Mmm
