Favourite Scents of Summer

Every summer I have a dilemma as to what perfumes I want to try and buy. Well for me, a true keeper and an absolute favourite of mine is Diors new fragrance, Escale a Portofino. Its such a citrusy summer scent and one I will definitely buy again and again. My absolute favourite summer fragrance-I just adore wearing it!

My second favourite for summer is Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche, a totally different smell reminiscent of the original gorgeous Chance, but with a lighter summery feel to it!! Well, next summers fragrances are sorted-I just need inspiration for Autumn now!!

Dear Sharon Rose,
I can´t imagine leaving home in the morning without perfum! My favourite are: Aromatic, by Clinic; Bulgary por femme; and Eternity by Calvin Klein.

Hi tupersonalshopperviajero-great picks, Eternity is such a fabulous classic!!

Do you change your perfume every season? I'm a stickler for tradition and alternate between two scents.

Sharon S said...

Hi Imelda-I would like to get a heavier scent for Autumn, so will shop around next month-I'm still in love with my Dior scent though, I've never really found a scent before that I want permanently, its divine!

Ida said...

I haven't smelled either of them, unfortunately, but I like to get the Limited Editions by Estee Lauder for each season. Now everyone's talking about Vera Wang's Princess, no? Haven't tested it, either. I am so behind on scents *lol*

Have a lovely day, Sharon!

Sharon S said...

Hi ida-yes, its lovely to know what scents everyone likes, its inspiration for what I can try next!! Have a great day, Ida!

Charlotte said...

Hi Sharon! I did a little post about you and another girl. If you don't like anything I'm writing, just tell me.

Sharon S said...

Hi charlotte-this is so lovely of you-thanks ever so much for featuring me in your post!! have a wonderful day!!

I used to like Calvin Klein's Obsession for Men back in the day when fragrance didn't set my allergies off.

Sharon S said...

Hi wendy!! yes, a great classic fragrance. Thats a shame about how fragrances set off your
allergies:-(

Cate said...

Sharon, i love chanel chance eau fraiche too (and i have to admit i don't even know what original chance smells like...)!

Sal said...

I've always wanted to be a perfume girl, but just never found the right scent. I'm drawn to citrus, though, so perhaps I'll check out the Dior!

Sharon S said...

Hi cate-original Chance is just really more 'heavy' with the same trademark scent, both are gorgeous!!

Hi sal-oh, I do recommend the new Dior one-it makes you feel you are in Portofino, haha!!

MakeupByRenRen said...

sounds lovely! i want to try the dior because i love citrus smells

Reena Rai said...

I've got to say, I've never tried them! I love the Dior ad though. I usually wear Just Cavalli, J'adore, Be Delicious and Noa. I want Pear and Daisy by Marc Jacobs though they are yummy!

Wendy said...

I don't wear perfume but I want to find a place to start. I must try some at Macy's or Nordstrom.

i only recently began changing my perfumes based on the time of the year and it's one of my favorite traditions. i wear burberry brit for fall since it has a bit of a spice to it so i'll be busting it out in a few weeks :)

Always In Style said...

I noticed there are a lot of Italian Coast inspired scents out at the moment - that Dior one sounds delish, I'll have to try it!

Sharon S said...

Hi ren-yes, it is so lovely!!

Hi fashion dreamer-I love J'adore too! I've got grapefruit by marc jacobs, but the scent fades very quickly!

Hi wendy-there are soo many gorgeous scents out there to try!!

Hi cupcakes and cashmere-I'll have to try out Burberry Brit, it seems a popular choice!!

Hi always in style-it is totally gorgeous, I adore it!!

Reena Rai said...

Ohhh no I don't want the scent to fade quickly! I knew they were too good to be true. Gemma should sooo not retire, but the new movie looks very promising

Sharon S said...

hi fashion dreamer-yes, it is a shame about the marc jacobs lot, worth maybe picking something else? yes, I agree about Gemma too!

I use something from Mary Kay, but what I'm really craving for, and have been for ages, is DKNY be deilicious.

FASHION CHALET said...

Two very wonderful fragrances. My Mom adores CHANCE, I got her it for her Birthday and then again for Christmas. And her other favorite is Vera Wang. Thanks for your comment, you are always so upbeat. And I really like that! :)
