The Two Best Scents Of Summer 2017 ft Marc Jacobs & MissGuided

3 September 2017

Hey Everyone! Hope you are well. So I am finally back from my holiday in France after a ridiculously long drive from where we were staying to Calais and then from Dover back home to where I live. I think all together it took us around 13 hours to get home. Most of which was spent in the car. It definitely wasn't fun but never mind because I am back home. I've just been spending the majority of today unpacking, eating and drinking as for some reason I am extremely warm and dehydrated. I have also just had my adorable 6 year old twin cousins come round to my house as well which was a lot of fun as they are just so cute and energetic. We bought them a lot of presents back from France so it was fun to see their faces as they opened them as it was quite unusual things that you don't get in the UK. I will be doing a couple of posts on my holiday to France and France in general as it is a place I have been quite a lot so make sure you keep an eye on my blog and other forms of social media to know when they go up. Anyway, I am rambling on way too much so let me get back to the point of this post.

Today I thought that I would speak to you about two of my favorite summer perfumes this year. Perfumes are the one thing I always spend a huge chunk of my money on. I always have one in my bag and take one everywhere with me. I know it's normal to do that but it is something I\have done for ever since I was a little girl. I would always take my Mum's perfumes (oops) and stick them in bag and just use them as and when I needed to. This summer two perfumes I have absolutely been loving have been the Miss Guided 'Babe Power' and the Marc Jacobs 'Daisy Dream Kiss'. Keep reading to find out more below.

Miss Guided's 'Babe Power'

Now I'm not going to lie here, I definitely judged a book by it's cover when I heard Miss Guided were bringing out a perfume. I thought it was going to be rubbish, but the more I heard people talk about it the more intrigued I was. I was shopping in Westfields in Stratford a few months ago and went into Miss Guided as I was birthday outfit shopping with a friend for her birthday. I saw 'Babe Power' on display and went to give it a sniff and I absolutely loved it. It wasn't at all what I expected and I was very impressed.

First thing I absolutely loved was obviously the packaging. I mean...are you even a blogger if you don't buy something just for the fact it's rose gold/copper colored?! I also love the fact that it looks like a can of red bull as well. I've never really seen another perfume with packaging like this so I do think it was rather clever of Miss Guided to do this as it's very intriguing. You just push on the ring at the top to release the product which I love as like I've said already I do think it's very clever. 

The next thing that surprised me about the perfume was actually the scent itself. Like I said at the beginning I was judging a book by it's cover so I wasn't really expecting much but I think the scent is amazing. It's very summery and fruity which I love. The top notes of the fragrance consist of grapefruit zest, sour cherry, pink pepper, crisp apple, pineapple and rhubarb. The middle or heart notes contain hints of orange blossom, peony and jasmine, whilst the bottom notes of the scent consist of vanilla, candy floss, sensual musk and amber crystals. 

I just love how sweet smelling it is. Normally perfumes that contain this many sweet notes tend to be a little overpowering but I don't feel that way about this scent at all. I think even those of you who don't like sweet scents would like this as it's also very floral. I think this is the perfect every day scent and it's definitely a perfume that smells like it should be more expensive than it actually is. 

Marc Jacobs' 'Daisy Dream Kiss' 

I absolutely adore Marc Jacobs perfumes. I have tried three of the perfumes in the 'Daisy Dream' series and have absolutely loved all of them so I was very excited when I saw they were releasing a new limited edition scent called 'Daisy Dream Kiss' and it definitely hasn't disappointed. Daisy Dream kiss has been developed by the perfumer Amandine Marie.

The first thing I absolutely love about this perfume is the packaging. I know it's no different from the other scents in the 'Daisy Dream' series but I just love the hot pink shade of it. It's just a perfect shade for the summer months and definitely a bottle that will stick out and look amazing just sat on your dressing table.

The actual scent of the perfume is also just amazing. It's described as having a bit of a floral fruity musky scent which I love. I'm not a huge fan of stand alone floral scents and I love the fact that this has got the fruity element combined into this fragrance as personally that's what I prefer in perfumes. It contains notes top notes of blackcurrent, pineapple and grapefuit. The middle notes consist of white freesia, jasmine and rhubarb and the fragrance closes on ceder, musk, and ambrox.

Overall I absolutely adore this fragrance as it's not sickly sweet and is a perfume that is perfect of all ages and is also one that you can wear for all occasions. If you haven't tried any of the scents from Marc Jacobs 'Daisy Dream' range I'd highly recommend making this your first purchase especially as it is limited edition. It has been my absolutely go to scent for the warmer summer days when I want to make a little bit more of an effort.

So there we have it. Just two of my absolutely favorite scents of summer 2017. I know we are now coming towards the end of the Summer season now but perfumes are something that can definitely be worn all year round and I'd highly recommend getting your hands on these fragrances if you are currently on the hunt for a new scent. If you would like the 'Babe Power' from MissGuided then this is retailed at £28 HERE. If you would like to try the 'Daisy Dream Kiss' then this is retailed at Debenhams from £55 HERE. Let me know in the comments what your favorite summer 2017 perfumes were and if you've tried the perfumes mentioned in this post be sure to let me know your thoughts. I'll speak to you all in my next post.

  1. Oh well, I know exactly how you feel. Me and my family we all live in Switzerland but I have a lot of relatives in Italy (since I'm Italian) & every year (beside this one) I drive to Italy for more or less 15 hours and yes it really makes you soooo tired. But I imagine you still had a great time there right? So it was worth it. :3

    The perfumes look great! I've never tried them. At the moment I'm trying out the one from Rihanna "Nude", which I like a lot already. :)
