Summer scents

the Antidote to... pungent perfumes that are too heavy for summer

Lock away the ouds and make way for a lighter, summer scent. Our top three (pictured left to right):

1) First choice is Elie Saab Le Parfum Resort £47, a fruity floral that, while still packs a punch, is lighter than most in this genre.

2)  For a lighter, fruitier option Guerlain Agua Allegoria Teazzurra £45, has an initial citrus burst of summer that instantly makes you long to be by the sea, dipping your feet into the ocean. Once the fragrance settles, the vanilla and jasmine scents are more prominent, creating a not-too-sickly floral that lasts.

3) Penhaligon’s Ostara, £67 has a pleasant spiciness to it….the combination of daffodil and narcissus is something quite special.
