Beauty Saturday - My Top 3 Summer Scents

For the last round of summer favourites I want to share my favourite scents. Diana of I need sunshine is hosting this round of Top 3 with a final round for this summer. I have to admit that this was a difficult one for me. It seems that I am not the biggest collector of scents and I tend to wear the same ones a lot. It was easy to find two, but three favourites has been a bit more tricky as I normally just switch back and forth between one sweet and one fresh perfume during those hot months or skip it all together. Often I just feel fine with deodorant and my body mousse or body lotion.

The Body Splash "Plumeria" by Bath & Body Works has been a constant favourite for 10 years straight. I bought my first bottle during my Au Pair year in the USA and have been hooked ever since. It is fresh, but bloomy, light and smells awesome. Perfect for really hot days. Plumeria or Hawaiian Jasmin also happens to be my favourite flower ever since.


The second scent is "Fresh Woman" by Mexx. The name promises something fresh, with a sporty hint and that is exactly what you will get with this perfume. I love that it is light, smells almost like a day at the ocean. I normally switch back and forth between this and the Plumeria body splash during summer months as they are both light, fresh and give me an instant feel of vacation in the air!


As this is the Top 3, I needed to select another favourite. It wasn't an easy pick, as I really tend to switch just between two scents, but this one, the Mexx Original is probably in general use throughout the year. It stands in my first row of perfumes and is an easy choice should I want something different for a change.


I have recognized a change in my perfume collection over the last years. While I have had a soft spot for more expensive scents for some time, I have recently found a fable for more local brands that develope less costy, but still wonderful scents. My favourite brand would be Mexx for Women and Bruno Banani for Men, which is actually a local brand from my hometown. I still have a huge crush on most Hugo Boss and Hugo perfumes. I just got a trial pack for Boss Jour pour Femme and am loving it! But right now, I have my eye out for Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau so fresh even more. It's been on my wishlist for several months and I hope somebody will hear/read this. Christmas is right around the corner, right :)!?

Freut mich sehr, dass du wieder dabei bist und dich der schwierigen Aufgabe gestellt hast ;-) Das Plumera Bodyspray hört sich gut an. Bodysprays finde ich für den Sommer total klasse! Daisy finde ich übrigens auch toll. Drücke dir die Daumen, dass der Weihnachtsmann hier mitliest und dein Wunsch erfüllt wird ;-)

Liebe Grüße
