Over the past week or so, I feel like spring has finally sprung. It’s been gloriously sunny, and blossom is framing the sky. Although it’s still a bit cold, I definitely think this is my favourite time of year! Another plus is that summer seems like it’s this close, and let’s face it, that’s never a bad thing!
So, in the spirit of celebrating almost-summer, I thought I would share DKNY’s newest fragrance – DKNY Summer for Women. It’s described as being ‘inspired by the vivacious energy and intensity of the summer heat’ and it really is just summer in a bottle!
The perfume comes in a very generous 100ml glass bottle which is so pretty thanks to the pink and orange ombre effect which just feels like some exotic sunrise. Even the atomiser is pink! Aside from some glorious packaging, the fragrance inside is just perfect if you’re looking to inject a little zing into your routine! When I first apply the perfume, I get a strong whiff of grapefruit and orange – it’s super fresh and just perfect if you need a little pep in the morning! Then, once the fragrance warms up a little, the notes of iris and lily become more obvious. The whole thing is made to feel quite substantial by the base notes of vanilla and patchouli, which blend together to give the fragrance a depth which is sometimes lacking in citrus based perfumes. The wear time of DKNY Summer for women was impressive too – after applying a light mist of it in the morning, I was still getting the freshness of citrus well into the afternoon!
DKNY Summer for Women is priced at £40.00 and is available exclusively here.
