The top two must have scents for summer are definitely Barbour for Her and Jo Malone’s Blue Agava & Cacao
Blue Agava & Cacao has a top note of lime, heart of blue agave flower and base note of cacao bean.
This is a fresh and flirty scent that literally screams beach and hot weather. It’s seductive without being heavy – the cacao bean is what brings the depth but is still sweet and carries that grapefruit and zesty lime on the body so well. There is nothing, honestly nothing, like this cologne at all. A unique thoughtful blend like all of Jo Malone’s scents it is young and evokes dreams of a vacation, very fun yet romantic. I think there’s nothing worse than wearing a cloying scent on a humid day so make sure you have something that was created with heat in mind a lot like this one.
Barbour for her has top notes of red currant blended seamlessly with pink pepper, rose, blush peony with a dash of musk and vanilla.
Brand new from Barbour, Barbour for Her still keeps with their countryside aesthetic. I see this worn on women at Wimbledon, lunch dates, Ascot, rural picnics- it’s very British and brilliantly so. It is soft and feminine with a kick (thanks to the pink pepper). The musk warms it up slightly so it can be worn throughout the day, it truly is like walking through a well kept garden of sweet smelling flowers on a warm summer’s afternoon. It’s light but lovely, one that can be smelt as someone brushes past but not at all overpowering. I think they have done well to venture into the fragrance world and can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
