It’s official ladies….my filofax has announced that today is the first day of  British summer (minus the blazing sun) and with sun comes all things bright, flowery and sassy. The spring summer scents have hit the counters and I’m on my seasonal mission to pick one that will best remind me of  summer 2011.

To date I have over 50 bottles of perfumes and counting. I absolutely adore perfumes and it always impossible to pick a  favourite. The best time for me to venture out and sample the new scents is in the spring. You can bet I have been out their sniffing and swiping at the free samples. Check out this summer’s list of my favourite scents!

Question: What is the official flower of spring?

L’Eau de Kenzo Amour £50 (70ml)

If you’ve ever owned or have loved any of the previous Kenzo flower perfumes, then you’ll love L’Eau de Kenzo Amour. This is the beautiful new spring edition from the Kenzo Amour collection. This version is an EDT so is a much lighter version for the sweet oriental notes rich in vanilla and wrapped in a sublime velvet musky coat.

Like most of the perfumes from Kenzo, this one is extremely beautiful with an exquisite construction and gorgeous of synchronization of floral scents. Everything about this fragrance appeals to me, from the pretty bottle to the lingering floral scent that clings to you for the whole day.

Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Florale £47.50 (50ml)

Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Florale eau de toilette is a light floral fragrance from design house Issey Miyake. Like most spring summer scent this scent is an eau de toilette and is a light soft floral. This fragrance starts off with a light citrus zing laced with the faint scent of lilies and settles into the citrus sweetens and a floral bouquet takes over. I personally didn’t take to this one as it doesn’t settle the same way it’s sptrayed on, nor does it last that long. But if you’re a fan of sophisticated flowery fragrances you’ll love this one!

Ghost Enchanted Bloom, £31 (50ml)

I have at least two fragrances from the ghost range and the sweetheart edition was an instant hit back in 2008.  Ghost Enchanted Bloom can only be described as a very girlie fragrance.  Like most spring summer fragrances it’s floral, but also quite sweet but still super-refreshing.  I’m not a huge fan of the super sweet fragrances but I do love how this scent lingers on you.  To get a better idea of how this fragrance might smell, this scent includes violet leaves, cranberry, bergamot, jasmine, water lily, freesia, peach caviar and amber.

Chloe Eau De Parfum Rose Edition, £52 (50ml)

I was instantly drawn in by this super cute bottle and couldn’t wait to I have tried at least three of the Chloe scents and it really packs a punch! It is very strong. I wasn’t sure what I was expecting when I smelt this scent, I was hoping it would lighter and sweeter. It is however and EDP so of course it’s a strong scent that stays on your clothes till the next day and beyond. Chloe Rose scent is described as being complimented by floral notes of magnolia and lilly and is also enhanced by honey amber and cederwood.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh, £47.50 (75ml)

Main stream perfume critics have said this is another hit from Mr Marc Jacobs although I have to say I disagree. For a start the bottle is very cute, there’s something about perfume packaging that can almost convince you the perfume will smell amazing. This summer version of Marc Jacobs hit perfume ‘Daisy’ is really not for me. It’s overly floral but not sweet, it’s almost bland. To get an idea of how this scent smells like it contains violet, wild rose, apple blossom, raspberry and grapefruit.

Swarovski Aura Eau de Parfum, £44 (30ml)

The first thing I thought when I heard some weeks back that Swarovski had released a perfume is that this perfume would be simply ah-mazing. Who doesn’t like Swarovski’s crystals range. Described as an incandescent fruity floral scent it really is a complex mixture of sugar and spice and includes white musk and amber as it’s signature scents.  This fragrance is not as floral as most spring/summer scents and being an EDP means you’ll get a sweet lingering scent throughout the day.

I definitely was not disappointed by the fragrance and was very tempted to purchase a bottle then and there. The reason I didn’t is because I have a thing about letting the perfume settle for a bit so you can really smell what a fragrance is like. Especially if you’ve sniffed about four other scents they all start to smell the same!
