Beauty Buzz. Sweet Success: 5 Fresh Summer Fragrances. Second City Style Fashion Blog

Eau d’Hadrien Eau de Toilette from Annick Goutal, $250 from Neiman Marcus

Straight from Sicily is this sweet, citrus-cypress-lemon scent. Perfect to smell light and fresh during the day– won’t overwhelm at the office.

Another daytime pick, La Chasse aux Papillions has citrus undertones but really blossoms into a delightful, light bouquet of roses, but not too sweet and definately not your grandmother’s rose garden. L’Artisan Parfumeur’s La Chasse aux Papillons 50ML $85.00 @ Barneys


Missoni’s Missoni Parfum/0.5oz @ Saks is for the woman who wants to wear a scent that smells earthy and exotic but not overpowering. It’s a blend that still has a very, very light hint of oranges but it’s primary tones are of deep, rich floral bouquets of peony, mangolia and rose but also the bittersweet scent of chocolate. Sweet.

If citrus (even in tiny doses) doesn’t suit then your best bet for summer might be from Marc Jacobs. Great for the woman who usually goes for amber undertones and woodsy, muskier scents, Marc Jacobs’ Splash Cucumber $55 at Bergdorfgoodman is a must-have.




A score for the ladies who like spicy scents with a touch of exotic floral fragrance. Again, if you want to avoid the hardcore citrus undertones then opt for Santa Maria Novella’s Pomegranate $84 at Eluxury— Joanne Molina for Second City Style
