Hermes Un Jardin apres le Mousson

Here at Beautyandthedirt.co.uk we love our summer fragrances light and bright. Sparkling notes that are zesty and exotic at the same time are what makes our day shine, no matter what the weather is doing.

Just Juicy
We’re besotted by the woody, fruity notes of Marc Jacobs Splash Summer, Pear, £39. Fresh, juicy pear is followed by lemon zest and bergamot with a bottom note hint of gin and freesias. If anything’s going to make you feel transported to sun-drenched Nice, eating a sharply delicious sorbet while the beautiful people meander by, this is it. Available nationwide

Sunshine After The Rain
Designed to emulate Indian landscapes after the rain, Hermes Un Jardin apres le Mousson, £42, actually smells of crisp melon with a backdrop of spicy cardamom, ginger and coriander. After the spice dries down, what remains is a delicately green fruit/floral fusion that will see you through summer smelling utterly delicious. Available nationwide

Wave Hello
Blend Jamaican limes, Sicilian bergamot and mandarins with tropical woods, tiare flower and coconut, and what do you have? Perfume perfection in the form of Creed Virgin Island Water, £105. This simple, stunning and utterly sexy fragrance is dreamily evocative of the ultimate paradise island. Available nationwide
