Summer scented fragrances



I don’t think there’s a secret to anybody that the fragrances that you use in the summertime should be different from the ones what you put on in winter. It is true, there are exceptions from the rule, but the summer perfume offer is so tempting that it’s worth trying at least one of them, even if you are usually loyal to a single perfume. Here are some new fragrances for this season:

Opium Vapeur de Parfum, Yves Saint Laurent, 59,50€/ 50ml

A delicate interpretation of the legendary Opium perfume, with notes of pink pepper, mandarin and jasmine.

Sunny Diane, Diane Von Furstenberg, 49€/50 ml

A limited edition fragrance, a reinterpretation of the original fragrance Diane, where the woody notes were replaced with marine and citrus splashes.


CK One Summer, Calvin Klein, 50€/50 ml

A fresh and refreshing unisex scent, with lotus, mint and cucumber.


Flowerbomb La Vie en Rose, Viktor&Rolf, 69€/50 ml

The summer version of one of the most popular perfumes, Flowerbomb, focuses on roses, but the interpretation remains still delicious.

Splash Kumquat, Marc Jacobs, 45€/50 ml

An energizing explosion of citrus notes: mandarin, bergamot and kumquat, on a bed of musk and cedar.

Aqua Allegoria Lys Soleia, Guerlain, 51€/75 ml

A fragrance that celebrates the lily and Ylang-Ylang; a scent that leaves your skin smelling like holiday.


Escale à Parati, Dior, 65€/50 ml

Inspired by Parati, a city in Brazil, that makes you think about exotic places, samba, and the sea. With citrus and woody notes.
