Faithful Four: Summer Scents


Over the past year, a huge number of brands have launched great summer scents, so it was time to let you in on my favourites. After all, if there is any season in which wearing a fragrance should be a legal requirement, it's the fucking summer....

My first favourite is the Michael Kors Sexy Blossom, a gorgeous eau de parfum contained in a seriously sexy bottle. Featuring top notes of litchi, rose petals, dew drop and green leaves, heart notes of peony, lily-of-the-valley, orchid and freesia and base notes of ambroxan, sandalwood and musk, Sexy Blossom carries a floral woody scent that is fresh and flirtatious. Only a couple of sprays are needed to make an impact, helping make this beauty last. It is available in a 50ml and 100ml size and, if you head over to, you can now get 25% off...making the 50ml just £41.00!


Next up is one of the most recent fragrance launches, the Ghost Sweetheart Forever. Inspired by a Parisian romance - Lord knows we all need one - Sweetheart Forever is a captivating floriental fragrance that really turns heads. It contains top notes of cassis, orange and litchi and heart notes of rose and white flowers. As for its base, it is made up of woody and oriental notes, helping set this fragrance apart from its competitors.

Sweetheart Forever has great lasting power for an eau de toilette and is surprisingly affordable, starting at £25.00! It is exclusively available at and comes in two sizes, 30ml and 50ml.


Next up is the YSL Black Opium Floral Shock, a new twist on the brand's much-loved Black Opium fragrance. The eau de parfum, which launched earlier this year, contains top notes of freesia, pear, bergamot and lemon, heart notes of gardenia and orange blossom and base notes of coffee and white musk. It has a sweet freshness that gets people going - I'm always asked what perfume I'm wearing whenever I apply this beauté.

The Black Opium Floral Shock has amazing lasting power and only requires a few sprays to make a big impact. It is available from in three sizes, 30ml, 50ml and 90ml, starting at £49.50!


My final summer fragrance favourite is the Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct. Inspired by the first moment of attraction, First Instinct is a captivating scent that launched earlier this year. It contains top notes of passion fruit, grapefruit zest and magnolia, heart notes of wild orange flower, butterfly orchid and water lily and base notes of tonka, amber and musk. It is a powerful floral fruity scent that is perfect for you younger girls out there.
