Melissa asks :

I'm on the look out for a new summer fragrance... Could you please give some suggestions for the best ones that are light and wearable day-to-night. Thanks.

Female First replies

Summer scents are all about light, fresh, fruity and floral, something that isn't going to feel too heavy on the skin. 

We've picked out some of our favourites below. 

The Marc Jacobs range are amazing, all of the Daisy ones, even Oh Lola or try the brand new Honey scent too. 

Stella McCartney summer fragrance is definitely a favourite, as is the L.I.L.Y scent. 

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb is a little stronger, so I'd save this one for summer evenings, but is definitely worth a spritz. 

And lastly, thanks to my mother Estee Lauder Beautiful will always remind me of summer. A classic scent that will stand the test of time. 

Hope this helps! And if you don't fancy a full perfume each day, just wear a scented body lotion like Jo Malone.
