I love a good perfume. Even when you’re feeling a little blah a couple spritzes of your favorite scent can instantly boost your mood. I tend to gravitate towards scents that are floral, warm, and depending on the time of year citrus and fresh. I’m a big fan of rose, but not like grandma smelling rose, and most of the perfumes I mention contain rose scent. Here are some of my favorite scents for spring and summer.

Giorgio Armani Si Passione
I’m starting off with my absolute favorite perfume! I wear this all year round because I love it so much, but it definitely works as a spring/summer scent. The notes: Top – sparkling pear, Middle – rose, and Base – woody vanilla. Since this is a little more sensual of a fragrance, you can really pick up on the vanilla notes. I think it would work perfectly for a date night when you want something a little deeper and warm.
Oscar de la Renta Bella Blanca
This is a newer perfume for me but one I reach for during the day often. The notes: Top – wet freesia, green pear, cassis, Middle – jasmine sambac, violet leaves, white rose, and Base – creamy sandalwood, peach skin musk. I like how this one is lighter smelling, the florals are much more pronounced and are sweeter in scent. A bonus for this perfume is how gorgeous the bottle is!!
Marc Jacobs Daisy
An OG favorite! I’ve had this perfume in my collection longer than any other and I still love it. Daisy is such a light and fresh fragrance. The floral notes are subdued by the musk and vanilla so it’s not too overwhelmingly floral. The notes: Top – violet leaves, wild strawberries, Middle – violet petals, jasmine bouquet, and Base – musk, vanilla infusion. The perfect wear everyday perfume.
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue
This is another great evening choice. The musk and citrus work really well together to give this perfume a warm inviting scent. If you’re someone who prefers a little more masculine fragrances, this is for you. The florals notes are very subtle but are present enough to keep it a little more feminine than your boyfriend’s cologne. The notes: Top – Sicilian cedar, apple, bluebell, Middle – bamboo, jasmine, white rose, and Base – citron wood, amber, musk.
These are my must have spring and summer perfumes. Let me know if you’ve tried any of these or if you have any scents you love that are similar!

Cleaning makeup brushes. We all dread it, waiting far longer in between than we should. If I’m being completely honest, I can’t remember the last time I gave my brushes a good deep clean. I actively put it off because it takes a long time and I just can’t be bothered. Even now while in quarantine, with nothing else to do, I’ve managed to avoid washing my makeup brushes.Read more
