Warmer weather and fruity, floral fragrances go hand in hand, but there are just so many to choose from.
We’ve saved you the effort by selecting the best floral fragrances of 2014. A single spritz is guaranteed to get you in that summer mood:
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh (from R780 for 30ml at Red Square)
A fragrance that is just as gorgeously quirky as its bottle, Eau So Fresh opens with grapefruit, raspberry and pear. These fruity top notes are followed by jasmine, rose, violet, litchi and apple blossom. Rich base notes of musk, Virginia cedar and plum add an earthy edge to this otherwise sweet fragrance.
This whimsical, bubbly fragrance is the perfect companion for a summer Sunday picnic.
Lancôme La Vie Est Belle L’Absolu (from R1050 for 40ml at Woolworths)
The third installment in the La Vie Est Belle collection, La Vie Est Belle L’Absolu opens on a rich, fruity note with black current and pear, followed by orange blossom, sweet iris and jasmine. The fragrance finishes with delectable praline and vanilla, while Tonka bean and cashmere add warmth and depth.
This breezy, carefree fragrance is best-suited to laid back events like a beach party or summer braai.
My Burberry by Burberry (from R700 for 30ml at Red Square)
Although it’s inspired by the classic Burberry trench coat, this fresh, breezy floral is simply perfect for summer. A true floral fragrance, My Burberry opens with citrusy bergamot and sweet pea, followed by geranium, freesia flowers and golden quince. The fragrance ends off with base notes of patchouli and Damascus and Centifolia rose.
This timeless scent oozes effortless elegance and is the ideal choice for the annual office party.
Dolce by Dolce & Gabbana (from R780 for 30ml at Red Square)
A breezy summer fragrance in a breathtakingly beautiful bottle, Dolce opens with vibrant Neroli and papaya flower. The fragrance has white florals at its heart and a sensual Musky background that adds complexity and depth.
This delicate yet daring fragrance is your new best friend for a summer night on the town.
