Over the past few weeks, I’ve reviewed a few summery fruity-floral fragrances, from Parfums de Nicolaï L’Eau à la Folie to Parfums DelRae Emotionnelle. As I was wearing these fun and bubbly perfumes, I realized that I’m enjoying them far more than I thought I would.
I love iris, woods and jasmine notes. Those scents are immediately appealing and don’t require me to try too hard. But I always think of fruity notes as difficult. Yet, when I examine some of my favorites closely, I realize that I have quite a few fruity scents that I love and wouldn’t give up for anything: Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune (my most recent rediscovery thanks to Suzanna’s review), Hermès Un Jardin Après La Mousson, Vero Profumo Rubj, Donna Karan Be Delicious, to name a few.
What about you? What are your favorite fruity or fruity floral perfumes? And feel free to say that you dislike all fruity fragrances!
By the way, you might have noticed that there is a clear summer theme on Bois de Jasmin this week. This is because even my rainy Northern city has finally received its share of sunshine!
