Classic Fragrances for Warmer Days

Some things never go out of style and that includes a classic fragrance. With so many new launches every season, stick to a classic fragrance may be the easiest solution to update your scent for the changes of the weather. I love a great smell and I can't resist shopping for perfumes - yes, I collect and wear them all. As I've mentioned here, I have a signature fragrance yet, I often change it depending on not just the season but my mood too. Anyway, spritzing on a light, fresh, floral or citrus fragrance just feels right for the warmer days...

Following a tradition of the blog on creating favorite perfumes lists, I've selected 7 of them that will make you smell fresh like Spring (and sexy like summer), see below and find the one that suits best for you.


Christian Dior once said "A woman's perfume tells more about her than her handwriting"... I want to know, what does your perfume says about you?

CHANEL N°5

A classic since 1921! It's impossible to talk about a floral fragrance and not mention CHANEL N5. Created by Madame Gabrielle and Ernest Beaux, this floral bouquet, is composed around May rose and jasmine, featuring bright citrus top notes. Aldehydes create a unique presence, while the smooth touch of bourbon vanilla yields an incredibly sensual sillage - the very essence of femininity.

COSTA AZZURRA, TOM FORD

Close your eyes and smell the Mediterranean air... Costa Azzurra is a woody and earthy cologne that captures the easy sensuality of a purely uninhibited escape. The exhilarating aroma of sea air, fresh aromatic notes, evergreens and citrus set the scene and mingle with deeper woody scents—a crisp medley of cypress, oaks and aromatics.

GUCCI BLOOM, gucci

From the cool bottle to a classic floral fragrance (and it's only from 2017!). A scent designed to celebrate the authenticity, vitality and diversity of women—flourishing in a natural, expressive and individual way. Blended by master perfumer Alberto Morillas, Gucci Bloom is created to unfold like its name, capturing the rich scent of a thriving garden filled with an abundance of flowers. Expect to scent notes of rangoon creeper, jasmine bud, and natural tuberose.

FEEL GOOD LIE, Hate me love me

A contemporary classic. FEEL GOOL LIE Eau de Parfum for women is full of excitement, longing, and provocation and stimulates the sensual side in you and your surroundings. The fragrance composition is based on the sweet-woody Javanese patchouli and the intoxicating molecule ambroxan, which give the fragrance strength and come to prominence, especially in the long finish.

JOY BY DIOR

Fran├žois Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator explains better: "I created this version of JOY by Dior around the idea of blossoming, a radiant burst of flowers as dazzling as fireworks. I wanted to emphasize its sensual side, give it a new light, accentuate its trail by giving even greater volume to the woody notes, a more sensual layer." Top notes of Citrus and Neroli add vibrant energy to the explosive floral bouquet, while the plush Centifolia Rose from Grasse blends with Jasmine Grandiflorum, the other Grasse icon, with powerful fruity nuances like no other.

FLEUR DE FIGUIER, Roger & Gallet

Irresistible freshness, the green, woody and spicy fragrance of Fleur de Figuier is a charming fragrance for women. At the top of this entrancing 2013 scent from Roger & Gallet are notes from Grapefruit, Cumin and Mandarin Orange. The heart is charming with hints from Fig Leaf and Fig, while the base is an enthralling space with notes from Cedar, Musk and Fig Nectar.

DAISY LOVE, Marc Jacobs

Feel the summer in your skin while Daisy Love fills the air with radiant florals and sparkling gourmand twists that evoke the bliss of watching the sun reflect on the ocean under blue skies. Undeniably feminine with a youthful yet sophisticated composition, the Marc Jacobs classic perfume opens with a bright pop of crystallized cloudberries that exudes a multifaceted sweetness. At the heart, the solar yet creamy floralcy of petals from the daisy tree mingles with the warmth of cashmere musk and driftwood for a delicate and memorable dry down.
