Summer Scents

I am a firm believer that a scent can sum up a season. During winter I love notes of spice and in Autumn I crave subtle, sophisticated fragrances. Now we are in June (say what!) and summertime is upon us, meaning a new fragrance. Last year I bought Escada Sexy Graffiti at the airport on a whim and even now when I spray the perfume I'm filled with memories of lush, tropical beaches and the generous warmth of the Caribbean. And that's why I put a lot thought into my spring/summer fragrance, because for me it's as much about the memories it evokes as it is about the actual smell. Just as a summer soundtrack encompasses nostalgia, for me, a scent reacts in the same way. In other words, Harajuku Lovers will remind me of a secluded, Greek beach just as much as Katy Perry's song 'California Girls' will.

That was last summer though and now we're amongst this summer (although it really doesn't feel like summer with the sight of a downpour outside my window right now). New summer, new summer scent. Enter, well Escada again, but chapter two of my summer fling with Escada.

The brand's limited edition scent Cherry in the Air is a delectable concoction of fruity and sweet notes, perfect for summer and perfect for a summer of  new memories and adventures. Whether it's far flung or a staycation, summer is a time of joy and experience. It's time to meet a new evoker of nostalgia.
So my question to you readers is what fragrance will be the scent of your summer?

  1. Sounds lovely! I love Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau so Fresh! xx

  2. This definitely looks worth checking out! I am obsessed with Estee Lauder Bronze GOddess but the price tag hurts my sould a little bit!

  3. I will have to give this one a sniff ;) Sounds interesting :) I love J'adore eau de parfum great for every season :)

    Lots of love xo ♥ ♥ '' Think Pink | Beauty, Fashion & Lifestyle Blog " ♥ ♥

  4. Hello lovely, thank you so much for your comment & follow, I really appreciate it :) I loved reading this post, it's so true that certain scents evoke certain memories. It's often that I smell something and it feels like deja vu but I can't put my finger on where I know it from! My Summer scents this year are Daisy by Marc Jacobs and A Scent by Issey Miyake - both were gifts, one for Christmas, and one for being brave having a biopsy. They're both quite light but not too sweet - it's weird because last year all I wanted to wear was Babydoll by YSL, but I tried wearing it the other week and felt overwhelmed by the sweetness. I will definitely have to give the Escada Cherry a smell - I've never tried an Escada perfume xx

  5. I love this stuff! One of my favorites.

  6. This sounds so good. I found clinque's HAPPY on sale so I had to get it.

  7. Escada always gives me good memories from when I was younger!! I do agree with you though, scents are important when it comes to seasons! This was a good choice!

    lovely blog


  8. I'm very unadventurous when it comes to perfumes; I tend to stick to the same ones, years after years. I love the beach photo!


  9. I'm just starting to get really 'into' perfumes. I'm current on the hunt for my perfect signature fragrance! I'm really liking Prada Candy, just need to build up the courage to buy it! This perfume sounds gorgeous though :)

    ♥ fabuleuse, toujours ♥

  10. I always change perfumes with the seasons, something lighter for summer and something spicier for cold weather. I haven't tired this Escada one before, sounds divine!

  11. I love Benefit's Maybe Baby!

  12. I've never heard of Escada before! I really need to get myself a Summer scent, I'm boring and stick with the same 2 things all year round!

  13. I love a few scents, specially for summer, mostly gardenia and jasmine aromas. Beautiful image in the first shot. /Madison

  14. Hi.

    (sorry about the white boxes, my blog is having a little difficulty)



  15. Ohmigosh I love that box - the illustration is so cute! Must check out this fragrance! :)

  16. I am such a huge fan of Escada fragrances!
    Amazing blog :) I just followed you and I'm checking your older posts.
    It's so cool that you go to Nottingham Uni, my cousin goes there too and he says it's great!

    Beautiful blog! I am actually obsessed :)
    If you can, check out

    All the best,

  17. Ah, I was just thinking about this the other day! How a scent always reminds me of a specific memory! In fact, have you seen the original "The Parent Trap" movie? In the scene where Hayley Mills smells the grandfather's coat and he asks what she's doing and she says "I'm making a memory"... I ALWAYS do the same thing especially with my dog, I smell his ears or his feet because it's a funny little smell and I want to remember it forever. Okay, I'm crazy...haha. But anyway, I am definitely on the hunt for a new scent (the last one I used was Hilary Duff's "With love"- I usually don't like celebrity perfumes but this one was pretty good) so I hope to get a sample of this Escada one. I'm also eying the Juicy Couture Viva La Glam, I believe it's called. :)

    1. *Viva La Juicy ....where in the world did I get Viva La Glam from! haha

  18. love this escada perfume! <3 So fresh and girly!


  19. I haven't found my perfect summer scent yet, but you really made me want to try the first one now :)
