What’s your summer scent?

In the past few weeks, the ELLE beauty cupboard has become an olfactory heaven thanks to the dozens of new fragrances launching this summer. And each journey into the cupboard has resulted in one of the team discovering yet another favourite to add to the list. With that in mind I thought I’d give you a little preview of my own favourites…

BLV Eau d’Eté Eau De Toilette, £29 for 50ml, by Bvlgari

A crisp, watery fragrance that evokes summer with its bright notes of mint and lemon. Tempered with warming amber and iris it's perfect for a fresh daytime scent.

Launch date: April

Glam Princess Eau De Toilette, £57 for 100ml, by Vera Wang

I love the playful nature of this, everything from the packaging to the smell screams ‘flirty’. I’m a magpie so the bejewelled crown lid and heart shaped bottle caught my eye but it’s the fruity notes of guava, red berries and pear that make it really stand out.

Pure DKNY Scent Spray, £58 for 100ml, by DKNY

I love the simplicity of this. Vanilla is the signature note and thanks to the white amber and sandalwood it develops to become a warm and sensual scent. Rich and luxurious – I’ll be wearing it on hot summer nights. Roll on summer!

Launch date: February

Eternity Summer Eau De Parfum, £32 for 100ml, by Calvin Klein

Each year Calvin Klein brings out a new summer edition of their classic Eternity scent. This one is fresh (thanks to the pink peony and freesia) yet musky and sums up everything I like in a summer fragrance.

Launch date: April
