When on the hunt for a new summer fragrance I am usually drawn to something a little delicate, very fresh and generally floral. But with this season’s new cluster of clean zesty aromas transporting you to the Italian Riviera with a mere whiff, the citrus fragrance could very well be my 2016 summer scent.
Here are 4 of my favourite citrus scents perfect for welcoming in summer!
- Neroli Portofino Forte £195 for 5oml by Tom Ford. A bold intensification of TOM FORD’s iconic Neroli Portofino. This classic Eau de Cologne with main accords of citrus, coastal Italian woods and smooth leather smells like southern Europe at it’s best! Ideal for both men and woman.
- Blu Mediterraneo Cedro Di Taormina £61 for 75ml by Acqua Di Parma. A vibrant and intense unisex fragrance inspired by the stunning beauty of Taormina in Sicily and the natural citron, is a precious blend of fresh and zesty notes combined with the intense signature of spicy and woody notes – literally Itally…or should I say Sicilly in a bottle.
- Essential Mood Lifting Kit £20 by Neom. Ok so it’s technically not a fragrance but this fragrant mood lifting kit by Neom containing 1 x Mood Lifting On The Go Mist, 1 x Intensive Mood Lifting Treatment, 1 x Mood Lifting Home Mist uses 100% natural fresh pressed essential oils, including wild mint and mandarin, and white neroli, mimosa and lemon to lifts your mood and calms the body.
Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne £85 for 100m by Jo Malone. A sparkling scent designed to replicate the fragrance of London’s Covent Garden early morning market. Sweet yet fresh with notes of succulent nectarine, peach and cassis, delicate spring flowers and acacia honey.Photography by Logan Irvine-MacDougall
