I don’t know about you, but I’m trying find my summer kicks wherever I can right now. Following last week’s heat wave, I’m ready to start embracing all things summer. I ordered some new sandals, hooked out my shorts and rejigged my beauty cabinets so that my most-loved SPFs sat front and centre. I have slotted so easily back into the summer way of life, in fact, that I often have to remind myself that, unfortunately, this summer will probably look a little different to normal.
You see, usually at around this time of year I am packing a suitcase with swimsuits and beach cover-ups, ready to hop on a plane to somewhere a bit more exotic than the puddle-filled streets of London. However, this year, the main event of so many people’s summer has been put on hold with travel bans. Naturally, as a result of this, I’m trying to find some escapism in other ways. The most obvious of which being through my daily perfume choice.
For me, selecting scents that smell reminiscent of summers gone by is the ultimate mood-booster and form of escapism. The minute I spritz my perfume first thing in the morning, I’m reminded of all of the wonderful feelings that come hand in hand with summer holidays. I’ve been loving my new summer perfume routine so much, that I’ve been recommending it to everyone I know. I feel calmer, more chilled out and, most importantly, happier with every single spritz. So, if you’re keen to give it a try yourself, keep scrolling for my pick of the most summery, spirit-lifting fragrances around.
