Finding the perfect summer fragrance*

L'Occitane Soft & Delicate Cherry Blossom Fragrance
Going on holiday is always exciting. There are several ways I like to document and remember my trips away. One of my favourite ways is having a specific scent for a holiday. It's always lovely to come home and spray that fragrance all over and remember what it was like on holiday. Unfortunately, it doesn't bring the amazing weather back with it but I find it's a lovely way to bring back some memories. 

In September I'm heading to Milan with my best friend and I've been on the hunt for a new summer fragrance to take on holiday with me, something quite light and floral. I'd thought I'd share this post with you today about some fragrances I've been testing, trying and loving recently! 


L'Occitane store in Bath
I was recently shopping in Bath and passed the L´Occitane store and decided to see what fragrances they have to offer. I wanted to quickly talk about my experience in store as I am overly impressed and left feeling a very happy customer. The staff were ever so friendly and helpful. I was immediately offered some Elderflower water which I must add was lovely! I explained that I was looking for something light, floral and fresh. I was instantly recommended, Cherry Blossom which was the perfect one for me! I explored a few other popular choices, however, was soon brought back to the beautiful Cherry Blossom scent with notes of freesia, cherry and lily of the valley. Something which I noticed and loved was the variety of formats; roll-on, travel minis as well as alcohol-free solid perfumes. The roll-on formulas are perfect for popping in your handbag and topping up whilst on the go. Not only are these fragrances pretty but practical too! 

Check out the full range of fragrances L´Occitane.


Dolce&Gabbana - L'Impératrice 3' eau de toilette
I've recently been loving this D&G Fragrance which I actually received as a birthday present last year from my best friend (Thanks, Ams!) It comes in a gorgeous glass bottle, however, is rather heavy to carry around in my handbag so I will definitely look at taking some in a small atomiser bottle. The scent of this perfume is described as exotic fruits and bright pink florals which I would say sums it up perfectly! 

Check out the fragrance here.


Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream
I actually received this perfume, Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream as a present too! It's a fragrance I've been loving for quite a while. It's a very light, dreamy scent. With fruity and floral notes creating an elegant fragrance. Perfect for on holiday or for special occasions! This comes in a gorgeous glass bottle which again is very heavy and would have to be taken in an atomiser. You can read my full review in more detail here.

Check out the fragrance here.

Top tip: When you spray the perfume onto your skin, don't rub your wrists together as it breaks up the top notes within the perfume. It will last much longer and smell as beautiful as it does when it comes out the bottle if you leave it to naturally soak into your skin. 

I'd love to hear your thoughts on which fragrances you recommend I take on holiday with me. What fragrances have you been loving recently?
