The warm weather hasn't quite arrived to my part of the universe, but my mind is already thinking: mojitos on the patio, shimmery tank tops and light, frilly dresses and spending long evenings outside in the warm air.
So I've brought summer to me in the way of French Connection's NEW LIMITED-EDITION fragrance, FCUK Summer For Her (pictured above).
It's fruity and floral, playful and light. Which is exactly what you want at this time of year. Mango and apple tart add vibrancy while freesia and mimosa makes you feel like you're in the middle of a garden. Sheer patchouli, amber and musk mimic the sun's warmth, so that summer feeling stays with you, no matter what the temperature outside.
I like this scent because it is so many things at once - just like you and me. It's sharp and sexy without being too cloying or invasive. It's just the right amount of oomph. Know what I mean? And the bottle is fantastic - firey orange and yellow just ooze the summer heat.
There is also a matching FCUK Summer for Him that is a super sexy concoction of sea spray accord, warm sage and drift wood, amongst other invigorating ingredients. It's super manly without being heavy in the least. And the bottle's the same as the ladies', but in a cool water blue mix. Mmm...
Long hot summer? It will be now that we've got the FCUK Summer Collection!
