Summer perfume picks

Summer has finally arrived in the UK (yay!) so it's time for me to switch up my fragrance choices for something a little lighter and fresher.

summer perfume picks

Cath Collins Ooh La La Orange* - Cath Collins makes a range of luxury perfumes and body products, all made in England. My favourite fragrance from her range is the new Oh La La Orange flower, which is a mix of citrusy orange, grapefruit and bergamot with ylang, lily and jasmine base notes. It feels quite an exotic scent, and I love the fact that the products are made mostly in England. 50ml £35.50 EDT

Marc Jacobs Oh Lola Sunsheer - I'm a big fan of the Lola range from Marc Jacobs and this summer version of Oh Lola doesn't disappoint. It's a very fresh, slighlty fruity scent, with a mix of floral and fruit notes to it and is possibly my favourite of the 5 perfumes here. 50ml £47 EDP

Jo Malone Lime Basil and Mandarin - This is one of my favourite fragrances all year round, but it really comes into it's own during the warmer months. Light, fruit and refreshing, I often use it in the daytime as a little pick-me-up scent. 30ml £36 Cologne

Body Shop Pink Grapefruit body spray* - this one sits on my desk at work, ready for a cheeky afternoon spritz. It's fresh, fruity and very citrusy, but doesn't last too long, so I keep it close by for regular top ups! 100ml retails for £7.50, so the price more than makes up for the lasting power.

Rihanna Nude* - I'm not particularly a fan of Rihanna herself, but really love this perfume! Described as a 'fruity oriental', Nude contains a mix of fruity top notes and more oriental base notes such as sandalwood and vanilla orchid. I like to use this one in the evenings. £19.50 30ml EDP

  1. I love the sound of the Cath Collins :) We must have a pretty similar sense of smell or like the same smells as I love 3/5 of these and the other two are only because I haven't smelt them yet! Lovely post :)

  2. I never tried any of these but I think I might go to sephora some day try something from the Oh Lola range :)

  3. I love the body shop perfumes! But I agree the mists don't last all that well. I have the coconut edt and that lasts a little longer if you fancy trying that one :)! X


  4. Nice selection. I have the body shop grapefruit mist - love it! :)
