The Fragrances for this season  

3 comentarios

Yesterday I realized I have covered almost all approaches to fashion for this summer season: clothing, accessories, makeup, shoes, ....
But, oh no! I forgot perfumes!

Let's be serious here, I may leave the house with crappy clothes and snickers, with no make up on, with horrible hair, no jewelry,... but neva EVA without perfume on. Serious!

My favourite perfumes are Pink Sugar by Aquolina and Kenzo Amour. =) I'm a sweet girl hehe

I used Pink Sugar for a long time, I discovered it when I was living in the US. When I came back to Spain nobody could resist to its fragrance! hehe Everybody loved it :)

Then I fell in love with Kenzo Amour when it came out and haven't stopped using it! I'm not one of those girls that has tons of different perfumes. I stick to one, and hate those that are too heavy or floral. I love the Green / Red apple by DKNY. So you get what I like.




So I thought I could as well find out what are the trends in fragrances for summer. And here they are:
  1. Citrus combined with floral notes.
  2. Sweet and edible. Fragrances are starting to incorporate creamy vanilla notes and chocolate-like scents into floral fragrances.
  3. Less fresh, ozone scents, more sweet, subtle florals.

This ideas are directly taken from the website Bottled Up Emotions - check the article to read the full review.

And of course, I went to Etsy to hunt for summer perfumes! Here are my picks:

Sellers from left to right, top to bottom, are (link to the item): artedelporfumo, Loreto, BerrysweetStuff, LemonLollipop, BerrysweetStuff, LemonLollipop, themefragance, LuxuriesForTheBody, Loreto, magickalrealism, YouStinkSoap, BerrysweetStuff, themefragance, BerrysweetStuff, Loreto, Byzan

Please note that I only looked for perfumes, not soap, bath foam, gel, shampoo or anything like that. I am an addict to anything bath/shower related, and if I had gone looking for those products I would have emptied my credit card! So I stopped myself from doing that and focused on perfumes.

I know that buying a perfume without having smelled it is very hard. However, seems this shops are doing pretty well and their customers are very happy! =)

There is a bit of everything: vanilla with floral, citrus of all kinds, sweet: chocolate, cookies, pink sugar,.. I am very tempted to buy some of these...!

Enjoy!

    This is a great post! You should try to submit it to the Storque.

    I like citrusy/spicy scents...so if I found perfume online that had sandalwood, patchouli, orange, etc. in it, I'd probably buy it.

    My favorite commercial perfume is more floral; I use it for everyday wear. It is Curve Soul.

    Thanks for the mention! The direct link to the article is here:

    And what's hot for Autumn 2008? We're predicting the trend with florals but heavier notes like jasmine sambac and tuberose.

    Also, we're seeing niche, bespoke perfume on the rise and also the use of natural ingredients. Think Annick Goutal and Serge Lutens.
