A Summer Perfume Edit

A Summer Perfume Edit

What is the most difficult thing in the world? Finding the perfect guy? The perfect pizza? No and no! So? We’re in a good mood so we’ll give you a hand: finding the right perfume for you! And with summer starting, you need to find something that will suit you AND will be perfect for summer. Hence, this summer perfume edit to help you on your journey!

1. Luxury Perfume Gift Set | Cliver Christian – £65*
Clive Christian’s perfumes are a celebration of the Victoria Era. Their perfumes tell a story and you can guess by the look of the bottle which one it is here. Perfect for spring, even better for summer, L smells of Damask Rose and magnolia topped up with some white, black and pepper. You also have notes of vanilla, cedar and patchouli which makes it an exotic perfume. Perfect when you go on holiday!

2. Chloé Roses | Chloé – £42.50
Chloé perfumes are my all time favourite perfumes. You just can’t go wrong with Chloé. This version is perfect for summer, it just feels super summery and fresh. And that design…

3. Lumière Dorée | Miller Harris – £75
I have no clue how to describe the scent of this perfume. The only thing I can assure you is how good it smells. There are obvious notes of citrus along with neroli and bergamot. You can also smell jasmine and orange blossom, which makes a beautiful bland of scents. To my opinion, it smells like holiday on a Mediterranean island. Corsica or Crete. Smelling this perfume, I visualize olive trees, the sun, the blue sky, a light wind and hear cricket singing. How poetic.

4. Fresh Rose Eau de Toilette | Yves Rocher – £13
Roses are my favourite scent. I love anything that smells like roses. So if you are more on a budget, and love roses, this perfume is for you, it is very fresh and light. Just what you need during spring and summer. It’s the perfect everyday perfume!

5. Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Eau de Toilette | Dior – £42
This perfume has followed me for quite a while now. I might have received it for Christmas something like five years ago! My go-to when I was in New Zealand. I think it is also great as a first perfume because it’s really light and flowery. Everything in the fragrance screams “cute”. A great choice for a summer perfume!

    Oooh yes right up my alley! I love a nice floral scent for the summer. I’ll check some of these out, thank you!

  5. June 29, 2017 / 4:22 am

    Thank you for this post! It’s always so hard for me to find the right perfume. Great post babe!

  6. June 29, 2017 / 5:45 am

    You’ve got some lovely perfumes here. I haven’t bought a perfume in quite some time now and will definitely check out some of these you mentioned. x

    I love citrusy bases so I’ll try Miller Harris and report back. My go-to scents for summer are DKNY Be Delicious and Armani Acqua di Gioia. I always splurge on books and perfume. x

  8. June 29, 2017 / 10:21 am

    I have been breastfeeding my daughter for a year and thus no perfume for me unfortunately. I wish I could try out the Miss Dior one. They all look so nice!

    After googling this topic, I came upon your post. This is just what I needed; thank you for sharing These summer perfumes! I’m debating which one sounds the best to go ahead and order and try !

    I haven’t tried any of these but they all sound lovely. Definitely worth a try.

  11. June 29, 2017 / 2:49 pm

    You are absolutely correct that finding the right perfume can often be harder than finding the right guy! LOL When it comes to perfume I love notes of vanilla or citrus scents. So perfect for summer!

  12. June 29, 2017 / 3:01 pm

    I have never heard of these, but I definitely need to give them a try! I have been looking for a new fresh fragrance!

  13. June 29, 2017 / 3:08 pm

    I haven’t tried any of these perfumes but I really need to get myself something new for summer (hey any reason right?) so I will have to see if I can try any of these at my local store.

  14. June 29, 2017 / 4:01 pm

    I have not worn perfume for years, to be honest! After the birth of my oldest five years ago, I started avoiding fragrances. Plus I have horrific allergies, and I do not want to make myself sneeze lol!

  15. June 29, 2017 / 4:03 pm

    Miss Dior is my favourite one. I need to buy it soon. Enjoyed this post lovely! xx

  16. June 29, 2017 / 4:04 pm

    The Fresh Rose Eau de Toilette sounds lovely. My budget is pretty low so this would be the ideal one of the bunch you have suggested. A light scent is what I need at the moment. I am running low on my current perfumes and need to stock up again.

    I really need to invest in a new perfume as I haven’t treated myself in ages, so this was the perfect post for me! The light flowery notes of the Miss Dior perfume sound right up my street, although the vanilla and cedar perfume inspired by the Victorian era sounds amazing too! I will definitely be perusing the scent section of Debenhams soon!

    These all sound so lovely! It’s amazing how seasonal a scent is — the ones that work in winter are somehow too much for summer.


    • June 30, 2017 / 6:03 pm

      It is strange how the scents you want around you, do change as the seasons do isn’t it? x

  19. June 29, 2017 / 4:08 pm

    I think I would have to go with number 5, in a huge fan of floral scents so it sounds like it would be perfect for me 💖

  20. June 29, 2017 / 4:15 pm

    I really must try that Chloe perfume! I used to use one and it was my favourite for years! My current go to perfume is Marc Jacobs Daisy, I’ve been using it for the past few years and just love how light and fresh it is!

    Great selection of perfumes! I really like how unique the bottle of the Cliver Christian one is! I love the sound of the ingredients in it and it defo sounds perfect for summer


  22. June 29, 2017 / 4:18 pm

    Oh lovely – I’ve been looking for some new fragrances… It’s so hard because I always default to my ‘safety net’ which is Chanel Chance… I’m intrigued by number 3 on your list; anything with Orange Blossom notes is a winner for me!

    Not a perfume person myself but it’s always such a go to gift idea and this is such a great post for that!

    Sounds like a great selection here dear, great summer edit. I’m a Lady Million girl, I adore their perfume collections but I definitely love trying new scents.


  25. June 29, 2017 / 4:25 pm

    I’ve totally been in the market for a new perfume. I’ve found it’s hard to find cruelty-free perfume though. Oh well. All the perfumes you listed sound lovely for summer. The Miss Dior one sounds like it would be my pick from the list. Afterall, I am too cute for life. I notice a trend of roses in them too. Seems someone might have a signature scent note, huh? 😘

  26. June 29, 2017 / 4:41 pm

    Chloe roses looks gorgeous 💕

  27. June 29, 2017 / 5:59 pm

    The perfect perfume scent is hard to find! This is a great list of scents to start off with! I look forward to smelling them in person.

    I Just finsihed my coco perfume and have been on the hunt for something different. I used to use Ms. Dior a couple of years ago and totally forgot about how much I love it !! May have to go back to it

    June 29, 2017 / 7:06 pm

    I have been in search of a new scent !! I totally forgot how much I love Ms/ Dior though so may have to get that one again 🙂

    I love the makeup colors. The eyeshadow is just my shade.

  31. June 29, 2017 / 7:29 pm

    I haven’t tried any perfume, but this all sounds like it would smell amazing. I might have to pick one up.

    These perfumes sound interesting. I would love to try the fresh rose one since that is my favorite flower.

    Oh I LOOOOVVVVEEEEE Chloé Rose! Totally one of my favorites!!

  34. June 29, 2017 / 8:41 pm

    That Elf cream blush that I see in the picture, never got around to try it. It is it a hit or miss?

  35. June 29, 2017 / 10:22 pm

    I tend to stick to the same perfumes but im getting married at the end of july and I really want to have a signature scent for just that day!! Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is at the top of my wishlist.

    June 30, 2017 / 6:31 am

    I agree, finding the right perfume is not so simple! Love your selection, my favorite is the Chloe one. The only perfume I wear is Chloe EDP, I just love the scent, suits me perfectly!

  37. June 30, 2017 / 7:47 am

    Amazing collection of summer perfumes.. Lumière Dorée is really good..I may try this out.

  38. June 30, 2017 / 7:56 am

    What a great list! I know them all and really love them. But my current favorite is the chanel chance. It´s so ligt and fresh… perfect for summer

  39. June 30, 2017 / 8:37 am

    Oh I bet these all smell amazing! I’ll have to get my husband to pick one he likes for me. 🙂

  40. June 30, 2017 / 4:00 pm

    Really want to give the Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet a try – I love the original Miss Dior. Also, your blog is so, so beautiful! Rx

  41. Ellie
    June 30, 2017 / 5:24 pm

    Awesome selection! My fave summer perfume HAS to be Marc Jacobs Daisy!

  42. June 30, 2017 / 6:40 pm

    First off, your flatlay is so cute! Secondly, I love Miss Dior! The packaging is beautiful and the scent as well!

  43. June 30, 2017 / 7:05 pm

    Great post and I’ll be adding some of these to my shopping list. Everytime I read your posts I literally want to buy everything 😂

  44. June 30, 2017 / 7:05 pm

    My signature scent has got to be Lancôme La Vie but I’m so keen to try out perfumes from Miss Dior! Marc Jacobs Daisy perfumes are also a hit for me, lovely post xx

  45. June 30, 2017 / 7:10 pm

    I need to keep these perfumes in mind, actually! I look forward to not smelling like angst all the time, lol! Thank you so much for this post.❤️

    June 30, 2017 / 7:10 pm

    These all sound amazing! I love getting a new perfume for summer x

  47. June 30, 2017 / 7:15 pm

    My go to is my trusty English Laundry For Her Perfume but I really should branch out one of these days. I usually like the Miss Dior scents although I’m not that keen on rose smells so I have to be careful in the summer as they tend to go over the top floral. I love your photography, as usual! 🙂

  48. June 30, 2017 / 7:20 pm

    The Chloe perfume sounds so nice! I always hear everyone talking about Chloe stuff so I definitely need to check it out when my current perfume runs out! I’m also such a lover of rose scents so the Yves rocher one sounds amazing as well! Lovely post!! xx Brynn

  49. June 30, 2017 / 7:29 pm

    I really don’t wear perfume though I do sample them in shops. I love the small I just don’t wear them. In fact I brought two big bottles 4 years ago and still have just over a bottle left…. haha

  50. June 30, 2017 / 7:38 pm

    I’m such a girly girl when it comes to perfumes, so those Chloe and Miss Dior scents sound right up my street! beautiful photography too x

    The smell of roses always reminds me of my grandmother. She was a classic beauty and it was her favorite scent!

  54. June 30, 2017 / 8:07 pm

    I looove the Marc Jacobs perfume I’m using at the moment but Chloe perfumes are always sensational, that packaging looks lovely!

    I haven’t tried any of these but I do love to experiment with different perfumes. It’s great to have daytime perfumes and then something a bit deeper for nights out

    These perfumes look absolutely amazing! I’m a massive fan of miss Dior x

  57. June 30, 2017 / 9:16 pm

    I’m quite picky when it comes to smells and never find something I really like. I’d love to finde like my Parfum, which I really love and wear every day 💕

    Great picks! I love wearing perfumes but I haven’t tried any of these yet. My favorite summer perfume has to be Lancome La Vie Est Belle.

    You’re reading my mind. In fact, this afternoon I was in Sephora smelling, spritzing, and trying my best to pick a new fragrance for summer. I remember a Chloé, but it’s all a beautiful smelly haze. I’ll have to go back tomorrow with a fresh nose and re-smell. Thanks for the great picks!

    Miss Dior is my favorite, and Dolce which are chose by my Amore. Glad he knows my taste on perfume 🙂

  61. July 1, 2017 / 1:59 pm

    I’ve always had this favorite scent that I always use as my ‘Signature Scent’. LOL. But after reading this, I’m thinking maybe I should try out something new for a change! 🙂

  62. July 1, 2017 / 2:16 pm

    I’m not as into perfumes as I once was. However something on the more economical side like number four sounds great to me! And bonus that it smells like roses!

    My friend wears Lumière Dorée and I love it. I will have to add it to my birthday wish list.

  64. July 2, 2017 / 2:11 am

    I’m not a fan of perfumes because I’m sensitive on smelling strong fragrances but I fancy looking at perfume bottles that look interesting and elegant. Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Eau de Toilette looks so cute and I think it’s a great gift to a girl friend.

  65. July 2, 2017 / 9:17 am

    My wife and I are not really connoisseurs of scents. Of course, the internet is still not too helpful in helping people choose their scents online since there is no way to smell the choices.

    July 2, 2017 / 12:16 pm

    Wow all perfumes beautifully described – loved it. Am amazed at the response your blog has got. Did not know that perfumes are such a rage.

    July 2, 2017 / 5:13 pm

    I used to like perfume when I was younger but now I don’t wear it so much. By the time I get 1/4 of the way done with the bottle, I’m so over the scent (plus they don’t store very well for long periods of time!). I think it’s because I’m not a huge fan of spraying mysterious chemicals onto my body so I usually end up using the bottles as decor! LOL

  68. July 2, 2017 / 7:08 pm

    I really am getting into perfume at the moment. I love my victoria’s secret spray but I would love to try out Miss Dior. Lovely post!

    Oooh, another Chloe girl here. I love my Chloe perfume but I’m more Love Chloe. I’m so excited to find it on your list here. Thanks for the great post.

  70. July 3, 2017 / 12:03 am

    Ooooh. I love perfumes. Nothing beats smelly fresh during the summer heat.

  71. July 3, 2017 / 5:12 am

    You had me at “perfume”. I am a person who loves scents of all kind, who likes to play with them and always discover new ones. I really like your choices presented on the blog, especially Chloé Roses – whith this one I am going to treat myself for my bday this year. Funny you mentioned Yves Rocher, I had a perfume from them years ago “Ming Shu” that I adored.

  72. July 3, 2017 / 6:56 am

    I haven’t tried any of those listed! Will have to go on a smelling mission in boots! My summer go too perfume is CKOne, so refreshing!

  73. July 3, 2017 / 7:28 am

    Seriously I am really bad picking perfumes, so I really appreciate your help in this post, def I will buy Chloe roses looks perfect for me thanks a lot.

  74. July 3, 2017 / 7:51 am

    I tried the Miss Dior the other day and I loved it. A really light summer fragrance.

  76. July 3, 2017 / 2:39 pm

    This would be a great option for summer scents. I like that it has softer, fresh and floral scent.

  77. Megan
    July 3, 2017 / 6:07 pm

    I enjoy trying new fragrances! I have almost a whole drawer full that I like to use and switch out. The Lumière Dorée bottle caught my eye, next time I’m out I’m going to check this one out.

  78. July 3, 2017 / 9:06 pm

    Ohhh I have not tried any of these but I love learning about new perfumes! My summer go to is Virgin Island Water from Creed.

  79. July 4, 2017 / 5:22 am

    I am not really a big fan of perfumes. I do try sometimes, but mostly when it is given as a gift to me! Will try to check out Lumiere Doree!

  80. July 4, 2017 / 7:57 am

    I love frangrances! I helps me boost my energy and give me some positive vibes. I love DKNY’s be delicious and Chloe’s Roses’ scent. I might try the Dior perfume too.

    July 4, 2017 / 12:59 pm

    I’ll gladly take Clive’s exquisite scents any day. Plus the decorative bottle in that pretty cobalt red shade is a thumbs up. Miller Harris will do too.

  83. July 4, 2017 / 1:13 pm

    Chloe Roses used to be my favorite scent – though I think I’ve outgrown it. I’ve moved on to Jo Malone now. Try Basil & Neroli from their range – I do think it makes for the perfect summer scent!

  84. July 4, 2017 / 6:29 pm

    Great post, I love discovering new fragrances! xo

    as a guy, i’m really not that into perfume brands and the like. but i believe i could give this as a gift for my girlfriend. i know she’ll love it 🙂
