Top 5: Summer Fragrances!

I have officially finished all my exams and I couldn't be happier. I haven't blogged in 2 months which is ridiculous but I'm back with my top 5 summer fragrances! Fragrances are definitely one of my favourite things to buy and receive. Fruity/sweet scents always jump out to me. I thought I'd share my top 5 with you all, if I was to chose to a top favourite it would probably have to be either Jimmy Choo perfume or Calvin Klein Forbidden Euphoria (I can't decide between the two, I love them both equally as much!)

Calvin Klein Forbidden Euphoria and Jimmy Choo Perfume

Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy: The scent is extremely sweet and I absolutely love it. The scent lingers on your skin for around 4-5 hours as it a Eau De Parfum. I think it's the cheapest perfume in my collection but the price does not reflect the quality. Britney is definitely known for her perfumes as they've been such a hit and I completely understand why. This is definitely an individual scent that you could recognise on anyone.

Marc Jacobs Cranberry: This fragrance has literally been my to-go perfume on a daily basis. It's very sweet and fruity and reminds of holidays; it definitely smells like sweet cranberries. You get a whooping 300ml in a bottle so you definitely get your money's worth. I've had this for almost a year now and I wear it probably everyday as it's now become such an everyday staple for me and I still have half the bottle leftover. Lasting power is average, I would say it lasts around 2-3 hours before the scent starts wearing off.

212 Carolina Herrera: I remember getting this perfume from my brother as he accidentally brought the female version and I completely fell in love with it from the moment I first wore it. I'm now on my second 100ml bottle. This fragrance definitely stands out in my collection because it's like nothing I own. The scent is very fresh, light and slightly floral without being sickly. I would say it's on the pricey side as it is around the £60 mark for a 100ml bottle but I would definitely recommend it to all age groups.

Calvin Klein Forbidden Euphoria: This is my newest addition to my fragrance collection and was very kindly gifted to me by my sis-in-law and brother and it's quickly become my favourite scent alongside Jimmy Choo Perfume. The scent is sweet without being sickly, it has a lot of berry notes to soften and sweeten it up. I find this perfume lasts the longest on me and I could easily wear it for a whole day and still smell it at the end of the night; the lasting power is phenomenal. I would definitely repurchase this perfume again but I'm trying to use it sparingly as I have a thing with buying perfumes, I always buy the biggest size it comes in (does anyone else do this?!) so it can be on the pricey side.

Jimmy Choo Perfume: This is my second bottle of this perfume, I first owned the Eau De Parfum version but I now own the Eau De Toilette so I can do a comparison. The Eau De Parfum version definitely lasts longer and has a stronger scent however the Eau De Toilette is great as its much more lighter and still lasts for a long time, I would say it lasts for at least 3-4 hours before the scent starts to wear off. The scent is very sweet and absolutely gorgeous, it's very feminine and definitely worth a sniff if you haven't done so already. The bottle is just gorgeous and it's very well suited to the perfume.
