Scents for Spring/Summer For All Budgets

Here’s my pick of the latest scents that have been tantalising my senses over the past weeks:

Big Budget:

YSL Opium Vapeurs de Parfum

Opium scents are seriously seductive and glamorous so I was intrigued to try their brand new offering that promises to be a light and fresh interpretation of the scent. In the iconic bottle there’s a beautiful mix of orange flower, jasmine, and notes of vanilla and nutmeg oil. To be honest, it just smells lovely! This 50ml size bottle is €57 euro and can be bought in department stores and pharmacies nationwide or online!

Mid Budget:

Burberry London for Women

I’ve never tried ANYTHING Burberry up until now, but was pleasantly surprised by the deep scent of this perfume. It would make a perfect gift for any lady in your life who likes a strong, floral scent with deeper notes of musk and sandalwood. This can be bought online through Amazon for just over €30 if you’re looking for a good deal!

Low Budget

Zara Woman Fruity:

I was mooching through Zara as I often do when I decided to get a whiff of their perfume selection and instantly fell in love with this big bottle of fruity perfume. For an incredible €9.95 you get a whopping 100ml of scent to keep you happy and honestly, it’s gorgeous for Spring and Summer. Check it out the next time you’re passing the store!

So what’s your favourite scents for the warmer months? Let me know!
