Smelling good is something I often find underrated, don’t you just love it when someone passes you and you get a whiff of a great smell? I know I do. I always love to tell people when they smell great too, not just because I want to know what they are wearing (because I’m super nosey) but because a compliment however small goes a long way. You never know when you can make someones day, that’s why today I’m sharing with you my Summer fragrance guide for men and women. Within this post I’ve tried to show you products I love that are ‘affordable’ and ‘treat yourself‘ worthy, so I’m hoping there’s a little something for everyone. I’ve ranked the fragrances as ‘Treat yourself‘ ‘Special Occasion‘ and ‘Every day‘.
For the Men
Clive Christian – MASCULINE EDITION GIFT SET (Treat yourself) 3x 30ml
With Father’s Day approaching it’s the perfect opportunity to show your father just how much you appreciate him, this Father’s Day Perfume Gift Set is the perfect gift to do just that (sorry Dad but my budget doesn’t spread quite this far). However if gifting this gift set for Father’s Day isn’t what you had in mind and you’d prefer to treat yourself then this gift set is ideal for that too. By purchasing this gift set you’ll either gift or receive a collection of three fragrances from Clive Christian’s Original Collection. The fragrances come in 30ml beautifully decanted bottles and a luxurious Black container. Don’t let the smaller sized bottles put you off purchasing this gift set, although it’s deceiving as the bottles are 30ml they are the same concentration and intensity as the 50ml and 100ml bottles. The smaller sizes just mean that the lucky owner of these fragrances has a choice over which one they use.
What you’ll receive:
1872: With hints of Sandalwood, Cedar, Citrus and Spice
X: Woody with extracts from all over the world
No.1: With hints from Oriental lands and a hidden warmth
Tom Ford for Men Eau de Toilette Spray 100ml – (Special Occasion)
If you’re looking for that ‘Special Occasion
then this might be the one for you. With hints of Citrus, Spice and a woody scent this fragrance sure does stand out. It’s designed to be long lasting which is perfect as I don’t see many men carrying around clutch bags on special occasions (feel free to correct me if I’m wrong here
Paco Rabanne Million – 100ml (Every day)
is worn by Andy (my boyfriend, Just in case you’re new to my blog
) and I really enjoy the smell, which is probably a good thing as I smell it almost everyday. I believe that people have scents that really suit them and that remind you of that certain person and this is one of those. With hints of Amber, Cinnamon and Leather I feel it gives off a really ‘manly’ smell, something you’d hope for in a men’s fragrance.
All about the Women
I don’t know about you but wherever I go I always carry fragrance with me, whether it’s a full size bottle or a sample size I must have something in my bag. Usually I’m paranoid about smelling funky so having something with me at all times usually puts me at ease.
Giorgio Armani SI Eau De Parfum – 100ml (Treat Yourself)
, It was a Christmas present from Andy which came in a lovely gift set over a year ago. It’s saved for times when I want to feel that little bit extra special because it’s the nicest fragrance I own and I don’t want to use it so much that I don’t love the scent… I feel like sometimes it’s easy to get bored
with a scent, this is why I save certain ones for best. With hints of Mandarin, Vanilla and Jasmine it leaves you with a combination of floral and fruity tones.
Zara Wonder Rose – 30ml (Special Occasion)
Again another fragrance
with a touch of Vanilla (I’m starting to see a pattern here
) Rose and Peach too, there’s a mixture of floral and fruity tones. I tend to wear this fragrance more day to-night because it is not as overwhelming
as Si and so it is a lot more transferable in my opinion. The fragrance itself is really affordable too and unless I knew it was from Zara I don’t think I’d have any idea where it was from or how much it cost. It’s no surprise really that this fragrance has hints of Rose as it’s in the name… Due to being saved for special occasions or nights out only I’ve found that it’s lasted a really long time and hopefully will last a long time going forward too.
So…? Vanilla Milkshake – 100ml (Every Day)
When I say I wear this everyday, I’m not joking. I’m literally obsessed
with the smell of this stuff, whenever I spray this in the office someone always says who is that that smells nice? Yup, you guessed it. It’s me smelling like a cross between Vanilla and a cake. The smell makes me kinda hungry but I’m not complaining. Usually you’ll find me with this fragrance
to hand. I love it so much that I have a couple… They are so affordable you’d be silly not to. I remember the days when So…? was introduced and the packaging wasn’t so aesthetically pleasing but since then they’ve come a long way and their design has developed in a good way of course!
Thanks for reading, I hope this post gave you some inspiration!
