It’s that one rainy day of spring. Your crush from high school/college just asked you out for a cute ice-cream date. You pulled the most beautiful floral skirt out of that one forbidden corner of your closet. You are now feeling like that lost princess with that beautiful bright pink lipstick.
Something’s missing! Maybe the fragrance of romantic flowers to make you feel like a daisy and bloom like an orchid.
Not to worry, how about you consider these three beauties:
1) Dior J'Adore
The classic Dior J’Adore leads the list. In existence since 1999, this beauty is one of the most sold perfumes from Dior. Dior is always known for their delicacy and class and this princess is no exception.
Magnolia, melon, peach, pear, bergamot, and mandarin orange form its top note. Middle notes are dominated by two Burroughs plums, violet orchid, jasmine, freesia, lily, and rose. While the base note has musk, vanilla, cedar, and blackberry.
This has a very fruity and flowery smell that is very youthful. This immediately reminds you of that old-school love. The smell is very subtle and not overpowering at all. So, it can be easily worn on any occasion.
With a very beautiful and elegant Egyptian design, we recommend you trying this for that immediate Cleopatra vibes.
The stay is good, it stays until washed off. It has very spring and summer vibes. Overall a must-have for this spring and summer season. Get your hands on one asap if not already.
2) Carolina Herrera 212 Sexy
Carolina Herrera 212 Sexy makes second to the list this summer. This beauty has been there for quite a while now. Launched in 2005, it still manages to keep up its charm in the fragrance market.
The main accords of this oriental floral perfume are sweet, musky, powdery, vanilla, and soft-spicy. Overall a very mature scent. The top notes of this perfume are pink pepper, orange, and Bergamo. This is followed by gardenia, rose, candy, musk, and vanilla as the middle ones. While sandalwood, caramel, patchouli, and violet dominate the bottom notes.
It has that hint of sexiness as it has predominant notes of rose and soft-spice.
It lasts well for 6–8 hours if worn moderately. It’s a decent perfume for the price range that it fits in. It has a very versatile scent and people often say that this perfume wears you and not vice-versa really.
3) Twilly d'Hermes Eau Poivree
Twilly d’Hermes Eau Poivree makes it third to the list of summer must haves.
The notes here are dominated by soft-spice, rose, patchouli, wood, and it gives a hint of ginger but it doesn’t have ginger really.
The scent is generally defined as floral & woody. The components are really simple yet so rich. This can be a good pick if you love the vibe of having a quiet summer evening by the beach. This perfume gives you that sense of calmness.
This can be added to your bucket list if you are looking for those carefree vibes this spring and summer. What else to say, it’s that one scent that liberates your soul!
