When the sun comes out, the blossom is on the trees and the days stretch into the evening, you want a light, bright and fun fragrance to complement the season. Here are three of our favourite summer scents for 2014.
Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Summer 2014
Jean Paul Gaultier’s classic women’s eau de toilette gets a summery makeover in this warm, refreshing fragrance with hints of citrus and orange blossom, one of the most evocative scents of summer. We also love the mermaid motif, complete with corals and starfish for a real holiday feel.
Buy: £40, 100ml. Superdrug.
Paul Smith Sunshine Limited Edition
The fuchsia pink packaging of Paul Smith’s limited edition Sunshine is a taster of what’s to come, as this is a bold fragrance full of the aromas of summer, with zesty fruit notes overlaying delicate florals. It’s a sunny scent that’s perfect for popping in your suitcase or picking up as you pass through duty free.
Buy: £24.80 (20% off), 100ml. Debenhams.
Issey Miyake L’Eau D’Issey Summer
We’re big fans of Issey Miyake’s cool, fresh fragrances and the summer 2014 edition is no exception. The freshness here comes from the hints of tropical fruits such as grapefruit and lychees and it has a flirty, feminine edge. And this is another brand that is evoking the seas in its packaging, with starfish and seafhorses adorning the bottle.
Buy: £33.99, 100ml. Boots.com.
