Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream


This fragrance literally has the smell of carefree good times – it smells like youth (if that’s even possible?!).

I’ve said it before, but I love anything with the addition of jasmine – it’s my favourite flower aside from peonies and roses.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream features rich feminine top notes of jasmine as well as dreamy base notes of musk and wood.

As much as it’s girly, it’s not sugary or sickly sweet. It’s a winner in my mind!

Shop it: Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream 50ml, $90

Flora by Gucci Glorious Mandarin


To be honest, this is my favourite fragrance of all time. It can’t be beaten in my opinion! Light, zingy, fizzy, florally – it’s what I can imagine heaven smelling like.

It has tops notes of mandarin married with peony, and base notes of amber and musk. It’s a young and sexy scent.

If I’m ever in a bad mood, this is the perfume I reach for to make me happy again.

If Gucci discontinues this perfume in the future, I might actually die.

Shop it: Flora by Gucci Glorious Mandarin 50ml, $77

Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia


Another fizzy and uplifting perfume (I think it’s quickly becoming obvious the types of fragrances I like!).

Jo Malone is the master of fragrance – from their exquisite candles to their perfect perfumes – everything she makes is divine.

Jo Malone’s English Pear & Freesia is no different. With top notes of fizzy King William pear, heart notes of freesia and earthy base notes of patchouli, I can’t imagine anyone not liking this scent!

Shop it: Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia 100ml, $185

Issey Miyake Pleats Please


Out my top five summer fragrances, this is probably the most sugary. Luckily the top notes of sweet pea and pear are balanced with a floral kick of peony to make it completely wearable and worthy of so many compliments.

In a way it’s very similar to Jo Malone’s English Pear & Freesia with the exception of hearty peony notes which is actually present in Flora by Gucci – it’s as if my two favourite fragrances had a baby and named it Pleats Please!

Shop it: Issey Miyake Pleats Please 50ml, $105

See By Chloé Si Belle

See By Chloé Si Belle is super pretty and feminine.

With top notes of refreshing cucumber, neroli and birch leaf – this perfume is as uplifting as a jug of Pimms!

The heart notes are equally gorgeous with fizzy apple and sensual gardenia taking over and the lasting lingering notes of coconut can’t get much more summery!

This is a great summer fragrance to spoil yourself with.

Shop it: See by Chloe Si Belle 75ml, $140
