7 FRAGRANCES WE’RE FEELING FOR SUMMER

We’ve done an in-depth exploration of the the ELLE beauty closet (it’s huge) to select some of our favourite fragrances for this summer.

We are all overjoyed at the chance to finally get out there and enjoy all the fun adventures that come with the warmer season. But…with the adventures comes the opportunity (responsibility?) to dress up and spritz on summery fragrances. As the late great Coco Chanel once said, “A woman who does not use perfume has no future”, perhaps a bit harsh, but we wouldn’t want to disappoint Coco now would we?  So, we’ve compiled a list of the 7 fragrances we think you should try out this season.

  1. Lanvin Eclat de Fleurs

Lanvin presents Eclat de Fleurs, a fruity and floral fragrance that was developed by Anne Flipo and Nicholas Beaulieu. The bottle is inspired by the daisy and the scent reflects this, with floral notes of freesia, rose, jasmine and pear. This fragrance evokes a youthful and euphoric aura, perfect for a picnic on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

2. Giorgio Armani Prive Rose D’arabie L’or Du Desert

Inspired by the luxurious and rich desert sand, Giorgio Armani presents their Prive Rose D’arabie L’or Du Desert. The fragrance is an ode to sexuality and contains real gold petals that linger on the skin when released. The scent  is a flowery and spicy reminiscent of the Orient. Just perfect for a first date on a warm summer evening.
