Fragrance Favourites for S/S

Besides make-up, fragrance is my all time favourite thing to purchase wether its because they're often cased in killer packaging or because it adds a feminine touch to any look. Nothing seems to be more uplifting than spritzing on a tantalising perfume before walking out the door. Switching up your fragrance choices is the perfect segue for the transition from the winter to spring. So this is why I decided to share three of my all time favourite fragrances for the warmer months, so you can feel inspired to shake up your fragrance stash ready for spring/summer. 

First up is the MAC Turqautic fragrance (£38.50 for 50ml) that featured in my March favourites. I know what you're thinking - MAC do perfume?! Not only do they do perfume but those clever clogs at MAC headquarters have created the most amazing summer scent, cased in a gorgeous oblong-shaped cube that connotes cool underwater vibes. I spritzed this on my wrist when making a purchase at the counter and ten minutes later I was back in store, picking it up to purchase. The aquatic packaging mimics the the fragrance ingredients as it contains anemone, lotus and Corsican blue cedar to name a few. The fragrance lasts well throughout the day so rarely requires a top up and has already drawn in many compliments from others. If you are looking for a new fresh scent for this summer, I seriously recommend checking this out! 

Next up is the plenty raved about fragrance, Molecule 01 from Escentric Molecules. The innovative idea behind this product is what initially sold it to me in the first place. The fragrance is unisex so pretty much everybody in your household can use it, making the steep price tag of £65.50 for 100ml, slightly less horrifying. The main ingredient in this fragrance is the chemical iso E super, the base note that is often used to create allure in a scent. Therefore, this perfume has a unique scent for everybody meaning no two people will smell the same but they will still most definitely smell good. The undertones of this perfume are subtle and sultry but work all year round. If you purchase this bottle, you can be ensured you can wear it all day, everyday, through every single season. Therefore, it's more an investment piece, right? The only downside to this fragrance is that it is fairly difficult to smell on yourself thus giving the false conception that it's worn off yet the compliments will still be flooding in from everyone else around you. Trust me. 

Finally, is of course the number one summer fragrance in my eyes. The Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess. This only comes out once a year during summer, is incredibly limited edition and is basically summer in a bottle. A spritz of this fragrance is enough to make you crave a tropical vacation in paradise. Featuring ingredients such as coconut milk, lemon mandarin and magnolia petals, this scent is addictive. The scent is light but alluring and is enough to get anyway excited for the heat of summer. I have already written a raving review about this fragrance last summer on my blog so do go and check that out if you want to know more about what this fragrance contains. 

I would love to know your thoughts in the comments.
