The Hottest Scents Your Need In Your Handbag This SS22

You’ll be getting Anthony Bridgerton-style sniffs all summer long

We are FINALLY seeing some good weather so you know what that means. Spring is here! I couldn’t be more excited to see the longer evenings and just to have a bit of sun. It’s beautiful even thinking about it. 

But now that sunshine is in our midst and I can stop wearing my fur coat, it’s that time of year to switch up your scent. 

You can’t beat a new perfume, it makes you feel like you’re changing your identity for a season. Well, to me anyway! It’s such a subtle way to shake things up in your life and transition into the new season. 

So without further adieu, here are 8 gorgeous Spring and Summer perfumes for 2022! 

Zara’s Cherry Smoothie 

Starting off with a stunningly affordable option. From their new Spring 22 scent collection, Cherry Smoothie is apparently the perfect dupe for Tom Ford’s Lost Cherry and for a crazy €15.95, you can’t go wrong! This perfume will give you the perfect transitional spring scent with hints of vanilla but the freshness of cherry AND on a budget? Please and thank you.

Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia

An oldie but a goodie. For spring, you can never go wrong with a floral scent, and what better floral scent than Flora? It may not meet a Zara price point but at €95 for 50ml from a designer brand like Gucci, we can’t resist. Coming into the spring months, it is the perfect mix of scents with notes of white gardenia, pear blossom and jasmine. A scent Harry Styles would approve of.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Skies 

Moving away from his classic Daisy, this limited edition Jacobs scent will have you so unbelievably ready for the later spring months. Staying on the theme of florals, this perfume not only has beautiful packaging but it’s also loaded with the best scents for spring! Daisy Skies will have you smelling of violets and lotus flowers, giving you a fresh kind of floral and is priced at €70 so it won’t hurt too much to buy!
