hello! xox i'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to perfumes, and i'm wondering if you have any suggestions! i'm looking for some sort of light, possibly fruity, 'delicate' perfume. something with a summery, breezy kind of feel to it. preferably avoiding more citrusy tones (my best friend is allergic to citrus and i'm not sure how perfume would affect it but i'd like to avoid it, just incase!) thank you so much in advance. i love what you're doing xoxo

- Bright Crystal, Versace
- Oh, Lola, Marc Jacobs
- Be Delicious, DKNY
- Viva La Juicy, Juicy Couture

As far as I’m aware, these don’t have citrus tones. I hope you like them!


My Favorite Spring and Summer Fragrances

For years and years and years, I have worn one perfume. One perfume followed my transition from an awkward twelve year old to an even more awkward eighteen year old. Funny how that works. However, now that I work at Shoppers, I get exposed to a great deal more fragrances so I can’t be faithful to just a single perfume anymore. Here are some of my favorite scents for Spring and Summer! Spoiler: All of them are floral. Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking. 

Couture Couture by Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum- A sharp oriental floral fragrance

  • Top notes are mandarin orange, African orange flower and grapefruit
  • Middle notes are jasmine, honeysuckle and plum
  • Base notes are amber, vanilla and sandalwood

Vera Wang Be Jeweled Eau de Parfum- A fruity and sweet floral scent

  • Top notes: red currant, pomegranate and champagne
  • Middle notes: passion fruit, pink honeysuckle and pink peony. 
  • Base notes: pink crystal-sugar, musk and Australian sandalwood.

Valentino Valentina Eau de Toilette- An elegant floral with a hint of sweetness

  • Top notes: bergamot from Calabria and white truffles from Alba. 
  • Heart Notes: Amalfi orange blossoms, sweet jasmine, tuberose and wild strawberries
  • Base notes: cedar, vanilla and amber.

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Eau de Toilette- A citrus take on the original Miss Dior fragrance

  • Top notes: silican mandarin, Calabrian bergamot
  • Middle notes: peach and apricot zest, peony and damask rose

P.S. Brownie points to whoever knows what was the perfume I wore for years mentioned above. Everyone should know this.
