Summer 2012 Feminine Fragrances

Summer Fragrances for 2012


Scents for summer that are anything but heavy on the nose

Sporting a summer scent can be tricky, we often want to smell great but not over power anyone who is within a three-foot radius of our person. And while lighter and fresher scents saturate the summer cosmetics shelves, they may not be for everyone. What we do like from the latest batch of fragrances is the emphasis of femininity in the notes, whether it’s sweet like Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noir, or a bouquet of flowers found in Viva la Juicy La Fleur. Pair one of our favourite summer scents with a cherished frock or summer ensemble while there’s still sunshine to go around.
