Fragrance has the power to transform, transport and transcend. Scent can evoke emotion, offer a fleeting moment of joy or leave a lasting impression. It somehow manages to share a piece of your character with the world be it whimsical, serious, determined, romantic or mysterious. The addition of the perfect perfume to your outfit is like a must-have accessory to create the finishing touch. Much like accessories that change depending on the season, so too does our preferred perfume so with warmer days ahead, I’ve chosen to share my top three scents for summer.

-Jade Tierney

Gucci Bamboo – (€90.00)

This stunning perfume is my favourite fragrance from Gucci. It has a woody floral scent that is extremely calming and light, making it a perfect scent for summer. If you lean more towards floral scents but like an element of musk, then this is for you. I love to wear this in the daytime as it oozes class and sophistication.

Daisy Dream – (€74.00)

Made from ”unusual floral and fruity aromas’’, this perfume smells like summer in a bottle and is a dream for those of you that love all things sugar and spice. I find this perfume is perfectly balanced, not too overpowering but leaves a lasting effect. The floral undertones are light and airy, perfect for every day.

Maison Margiela – Beach Walk (€98.00)

This offering from Replica is designed to evoke “the carefree bliss of a summers day on the beach”. The combination of bergamot, coconut milk, musk, pink pepper and ylang-ylang create a fresh, beachy scent, perfect for summer days and balmy evenings. Although this perfume is the most expensive of the three, I found it lasted the longest on the skin justifying the price point.
