Smells like Summer
Dolce&Gabbana - 3 L'Imperatrice: Oh my God, I love this smell so so much. I bought it last summer and as you can see the bottle is almost empty by now. Luckily I have a full, 100 ml bottle waiting for me in the bathroom.
D&G came out with this fragrance in 2009, but I didn't discover it until last year. It smells really fresh and fruity, but also sweet. D&G describes it as a blend of cyclamen, kiwi, musk and watermelon. On me it smells straight up like sweet and juicy pears - and I love it and I just can't get enough of it.
Escada - Taj Sunset: As far as I know, Escada brings out a summer perfume every year - in 2011 it was Taj Sunset and I've been longing for bottle of this little wonder ever since. The top notes are mango, blood orange and nectarine, the heart notes are raspberry, lotus, star apple and waterlily. The base notes are coconut, musk and sandalwood. Well, that sounds like a wild fruit and flower bouquet, doesn't it?
On me, the sweetness of the fruity components is definitely dominant - as soon as I spray it on it smells like two things: Red Bull and gummi bears. Sound weird, but is really amazing. For me Escada's Taj Sunset perfectly captures the essence of a hot, joyful summer evening.
What does summer smell like for you and what is your favorite summer perfume?
