My Summer Scents
Advertisement - These perfumes were gifted to me.
I have always loved perfume. I look at it like sort of an everyday luxury, something that adds that last touch to any outfit, and really sets the mood for the rest of the day. Perfumes can accentuate what your attire is trying front, an example could be if you are wearing a bright red dress and you want to channel confidence. The right perfume would add just that last touch to your look, but also your mood. One could say that the right perfume is a confidence booster of some sorts.
Since I do love perfume a lot, I tend to vary which one I wear. This also reflects upon the current season we find ourselves in. Summer scents and winter scents for me would be quite different. I have gathered up three of my current favorite scents that I will wear this summer. All of them representing a different type of mood, look and feel.
Dolce & Gabbana The One - Via Vita Exclusive
I fell in love with this perfume the first time I smelled it. It smelled like something familiar, a smell that I couldn't really point my finger at. One of the main notes in it is the Madonna lilly, but it also has notes of bergamot, mandarin, lychee, peach, jasmine and vanilla. It's not overly floral smelling which I like. It is the perfect combination of sensual and cute, and it is a very modern scent. Out of the three, this is the one I reach toward the most. It fits perfect with my more colorful outfits, or outfits with a lot of patterns. One could say that the perfume is quite playful, so that is why I like to combine it with my more playful and fun attire.
Le Labo Santal 33 - Via Sanatorium (in Oslo)
The most recent perfume in my collection. I have been wanting this perfume for quite some time now, but one haven't been able to buy it here in Norway.. Until now. The perfume is based on sandalwood, but it also has notes of iris, violet and cardamom. Everything in it is handmade, from the flower picking to the blending of the perfume in the labs. One of the main reasons I love it so much is that it smells like nothing I have ever smelled before. It's very unique and really sets the mood. I would wear, and plan on wearing this with more muted outfits. Like for example today I wore it with a white skirt, a big white shirt and some black sandals. I wore minimal make-up and accessories. The whole outfit felt very clean, and that is what I get from this perfume as well.
Giorgio Armani Sì Passione
Let's talk about that red dress I mentioned in the beginning. This is the perfume you wear with that dress. It's sensual but not too overpowering. You can actually wear it both daytime and nighttime I personally think. It has notes of pear, vanilla, rose, jasmin etc. It's very feminine and powerful. I wear this when I am going out for dinner, to evening events and whenever I get more dressed up. You can use this perfume to become more dressed up without adding any more elements to your outfit.
If you are looking for a new perfume I highly recommend these three. All three were gifted, but all of the opinions are my own. I would never write about something I don't like, and I hope you guys see that.
