(All prices are based on Ici Paris XL prices because it's my favorite cosmetics & perfume store! (except for Jo Malone and étoile de Rem)
Reminiscence - Étoile de rem
This was the first real summer fragrance I ever bought. I am still madly in love with this scent! It's so fresh and really makes you feel like you're on vacation :)
It's an aquatic scent with a touch of vanilla and coconut. It's a very special scent, when someone is wearing it, you will notice it immediately.
You can find it in local stores that sell the Reminiscence jewellery or at the Reminiscence store.
PRICE: € 69 (100 ml)
Estée Lauder - Bronze Goddess
A few of my friends always wear Bronze Goddess during the summer and I always love the scent :) It's a bit more "heavy" than the étoile de rem, but it really smells like you've been at the beach with a cocktail in the sun!
Sometimes, you can smell a little touch of coconut between the orangy and lemon scents, it really makes the scent complete.
PRICE: € 63 (100 ml)
Sisley - Eau tropicale
Of course, this perfume has a tropical touch. It has a creamy, floral scent with a touch of violet.
Next to the flowery touch, I can also recognise a fruity touch. At first I smelled banana :D but it fades very fast afterwards.
It does smell a lot like other spring/summer fragrances though...
PRICE: € 106 (100 ml)
Jo Malone - Rain & Angelica
I totally fell in love with the Jo Malone fragrances when I received my english pear & freesia cologne :) It's such a fresh scent and it really stays all day long! So this summer scent is a good variation on that one.
Jo Malone has so many good fragrances that can be used during summertime, so it really depends on what fragrances you prefer.
PRICE: € 97 (100 ml)
Prada - Infusion d'Iris
Infusion d'Iris is my favorite scent. I've been using it for years now and I wear it all year long. So this is sort of my "basic" perfume, though it really suits the best during summer.
It's really a different scent and I don't know many people using it (and that's what I like about it :) )
It's soft though strong, has a sweet character though it is adventurous... Woody, powdery scent.
PRICE: € 90 (100 ml)
Balenciaga - Rosabotanica
This perfume really smells like a garden full of flowers/roses. This fragrance is woody (spicy) at first with a citrus touch and roses/flowers.
You can also recognise a touch of fig scent. It's a very deep and heavy scent.
It smells A LOT like the "un jardin en mediterrannée" from Hermès!
PRICE: € 98 (100 ml)
Marc Jacobs - Oh Lola!
I do love the original Lola fragrance by Marc Jacobs. My sister always uses it, so when I bought some mini-bottles at the airport, there were 2 mini Oh-Lola! bottles included in the package :)
Although you do recognise the Lola fragrance, the Oh Lola is totally different! This fragrance is very sweet, it makes me think of candy. After the candy part, I smell fruit and a little bit of flowers.
I do love this fragrance, though I'm not a huge fan of sweet fragrances for myself.
PRICE: € 94 (100 ml)
Hermes - Un jardin en méditerranée
This perfume is my second summer perfume next to the étoile de rem from Reminiscence. When I first tried it out, I thought it had something mysterious.
It really makes me think of a lake somewhere abroad in Tunesia or Morocco where the birds are relaxing and fuchsia flowers are blooming :) It also stays very long.
PRICE: € 83 (100 ml)
Dolce & Gabbana - Dolce
Dolce is a more floral and musky scent. I do prefer this fragrance during spring. It's just not summer-ish enough :) Though I do love the scent! It's fresh and new.
I would call it "the new Light Blue" from Dolce & Gabbana. I always loved that scent, but this one is fresher and trendier.
I am not the kind of person that would buy the perfume because of the cute bottle, but this bottle could do the trick :)
PRICE: € 96 (75ml)
Lancaster - Sol Da Bahia
This is my newest summer spray, I totally love it!
At first, it really smells like melons :) after that you get the coconut, fruity scent every summer spray has. I do love it because it's different from the Hermès and Reminiscence summer perfume.
It would recommend this spray because it's worth its price. It's very cheap for a summer fragrance compared to all the other scents and it offers the same qualities!
PRICE: € 32 (100 ml)
