Summer is on the way!  Feel fresh and sexy this summer with a beautiful fragrance -you can buy all of these from Fragrance Direct in various sizes – here’s our thoughts on them!  L-R in images Saharienne, Daisy Sushine Eau so Fresh! D&G Light Blue.

YSL Saharienne – a gorgeous, lightly spiced warm breath of air…couldn’t be more perfect for a balmy summer night eating tapas by the beach.  Top note on first spritz is a juicy fresh sicilian lemon which then develops into gentle warm heart of blackcurrant buds, jasmine and solar flower accord.  The dry down of this fragrance is a sweet amber and pine needles.   I love the gentle spiciness of this fragrance, it smells like warm baklava on a balmy summer breeze.  Amazing and 4 stars out of 5 for this wonderful fragrance!

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue – in my opinion, one of the best summer fragrances ever made.  Fresh crisp juicy lemons and crunchy granny smith apples open the fragrance before white linen blowing in an ocean breeze develops – carrying through some cedar notes, a few gentle white flowers and dries down into a soft amber and musk.  Fresh, crisp, bright and breezy – it’s the ultimate day time summer holiday fragrance and we give it 4.5 out of 5!

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau so Fresh Sunshine – get this one quick, it’s a new release and bound to be very popular with its gorgeous opening notes of juicy strawberries, pink grapefruit and apple blossoms.  It’s not overly sweet which is fantastic as sickly summer fragrances can be overpowering and you get a lovely development of pretty floral notes after the fruitiness has dried away.  There’s a very subtle amber in the base but as with all Eau de Toilettes, the longevity is always an issue.  Because the top notes and the pretty florals of this fragrance are so amazing you can almost forgive that but the gorgeous bottle makes it all worthwhile with the pretty pink juice adding colour and the amazing plastic daisies on the lid a huge shot of vibrancy for your dressing table.  Another one to love all summer long!  4 out of 5 stars.

We loved the bottle of Eau so Fresh so much that we took some extra lifestyle shots of it to show you how pretty the colours are.

Daisy Eau so Fresh was sent by Fragrance Direct for our consideration, the other two are from my own private collection 😉
