My Top 3 Summer Scents

My fragrance collection is out of control and I find myself switching between scents quite often, although... I still have my favourites that I use more than others. Gone are the days of being faithful to Flower By Kenzo :) haha. Here is my 'top 3' at the moment.

Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuiertook me by surprise and I seriously didn't expect it to smell soooo good. It has many beautiful layers, including top notes of Mandarin, Pink Peppercorn & Candied Fig, followed by heart notes of Violet Wood and Fig Pulp and base notes of Musk, Patchouli and Moss. Read my full review here

Ghost Eclipse* is like Summer in a bottle and it would be a perfect holiday scent. It's a fruity floral fragrance, featuring top notes of Bergamot, Marigold & Mixed Fruits, heart notes of Lotus, Freesia & Rose and base notes of Amber and Musk. I can see myself using it up quickly this year, because it's perfect for sunny days. I also love the bottle. 

My last pick, but definitely my favourite out of all three is the beautiful Lancome La Vie Est Belle*. I might actually review it separately, because I am obsessed with it! It's more of an evening scent, but I like layering it with something lighter during the day too. With notes of blackcurrant, pear, tonka bean, praline, patchouli and vanilla - it is almost intoxicating. It also lasts on my skin for absolute ages and when I spray it on my clothes, it lingers for days! AMAZING! Available from feelunique.
