I am a creature of habit when it comes to fragrance, I know what I like and I tend to not veer far from it. I love vanilla, sweet, fruity, tropical scents with a hint of sexiness. We’re nearing the end of Summer here in the UK but I’m not quite ready to give it up just yet… I wanted to share with you some of my most reached for scents that I’ve had on rotation over the past few months so we can cling onto that summer feeling a little longer!

NUXE | Delicious Fragrant Water

I was recently invited to Paris with NUXE to learn about their upcoming launches. Whilst I was there, we attended the NUXE Spa where we got to have a browse at the products. I was introduced to their Delicious Fragrant Water fragrance which smells like summer in a bottle.

Infused with a blend of ripe, exotic notes, including Sweet Orange, Petitgrain, Coconut, Tiare Flowers, Vanilla and Musk, it will forever remind me of my first time in Paris and be coming on every summer holiday with me.

TOM FORD | Soleil De Feu

I have spoke about this fragrance before in a previous blog post and has featured in plenty of my videos.

It’s amber woody scent with key notes of Tuberose, Sandalwood and Benzoin makes for a perfect fragrance this time of year. It has quickly become a daily favourite of mine and always receives compliments.

PHLUR | Tangerine Boy

A unisex fragrance that quickly made its way to my Fiancé’s side of the bathroom cabinet. A fresh, zesty scent that smells beautiful in the height of summer and equally on a crisp cold morning.

Top notes are Lemon, Ginger and Black Pepper; middle notes are Tangerine, Apple and Jasmine; base notes are Amber and Moss.


Penhaligons recently launched their Solaris Eau De Parfum as part of their celestial collection. The Amber Floral unisex fragrance encapsulates Blackcurrant, Lemon and Ylang-Ylang in ode to the sun that transports you to a hot beach on a summers day.

SOL DE JENIERO | Cheirosa Duo

Body sprays take me back to my high school says of vanilla ‘so…’ – anyone relate? That being said, I recently purchased the Sol De Jeneiro body spray duo and have been loving layering them with my body creams and fragrances. I love to layer 68 with Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarrat Rouge 540 and 62 with Penhaligons Changing Constance.

I’ve also been throwing them in my beach bag on my summer travels for a quick freshen up throughout the day.
