Smells Like Summer

Last week, I had the privilege of writing a guest post for Stacey’s blog, Expat Make-Up Addict. Stacey has a fantastic blog and writes some fantastic reviews of all the latest products, so please go and check out her blog if you are not already following! In the mean time though, here is the post I wrote incase you missed it! 

Everyone dreams of summer days, fun in the sun, days at the beach, eating meals outside and even though there are probably only a few weeks of summer left, there are some products that can make you feel summery all year round and will remind you of warmer climates and happy times, so stock up now! 

Suntan cream is the ultimate summer smell and the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration combines the tropical smell of cococnut, mango and papya together and one sniff of this literally transports you to the beach. It is extremely moisturising on the skin to giving you that dose of hydration as well as your SPF.

A product that I have been using more of since moving to New York is hand sanitiser. The Island Margarita scent from Bath & Body Works is like a cocktail in your handbag! It does the job of sanitising your hands and leaving you with a delicious fruity scent of limes! It is also a really small bottle so does not take up too much room in your bag.

Next onto the most perfect summer fragrance, Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess. This is literally summer in a bottle and combines the scents of coconut, vanilla, tiare flower, bergamot and amber which makes you smell just like a summer holiday. Imagine sun cream, pina coladas and balmy summer evenings all rolled into one. I cannot get enough and the beautiful gold bottle is just to die for too.

The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter is a product that I am no stranger too, and one that I use year round. Nothing screams summer like coconuts and this thick butter, melts easily into the skin leaving your limbs so moisturised and nourished that there is not a dry patch to be seen! I could not be without this!

Finally, one of the nicest ways to get the smell of summer in your home is by lighting a candle. This Bath & Body Works Watermelon Lemonade one is just the ticket, and smells exactly as your would expect, juicy watermelons combined with a hit of citrus. Very fresh and summery! Bath & Body Works candles are some of the best I have tried, they burn cleanly and literally fill up the whole house with the beautiful fragrance!

Have you tried any of these amazing summer scents? What is your favourite product that reminds you of summer?
