I have been searching for my summer scent the last few days but in the end I knew where to go, the Jo Malone counter.
I had visited the JM counter a few months ago to & while there I was lucky enough to be given a handful of samples, and fell in love...
Don't these look lovely in the sun?
Ugh I always want to put my perfumes in the sun to reflect light, too bad it alters the scent!
I had so much trouble deciding between two scents Nectarine Blossom and Honey, and Orange Blossom
The SA told me they were both top sellers, and many people would buy both in conjunction, when I asked why she had informed that when layered together, they create an amazing scent. Out of curiosity I layered on the two and indeed "pretty" is how I would describe it
I walked in with the intent of buying one small perfume but left the two with two full sizes! (typical)
I had compensated myself with the belief I had actually bought three scents. Alone they are both lovely, but together create a beautiful combo, best of all, they are all reminiscent of summer!
The more subtle of the two

The scent of clementine leaves in the morning dew sparkles above a heart of orange blossom and water lily, transporting the wearer to a garden oasis.
When I tried this scent I was immediately wifted away to my childhood in our family garden with the wall of honey suckles we had growing. My brother and I spent many summers sipping on the natural honey from the flowers. I am sucker for anything that is reminiscent of those honeysuckles in the garden
Nectarine Blossom and Honey:
This one is brighter and fresher
Desc from the website:
A youthful and fruity fragrance, Nectarine Blossom & Honey is inspired by the delicious scent of just-ripening nectarines and a taste of refreshing peach sorbet. Mouthwatering nectarine and peach with hints of plum, blackcurrant and vetiver are combined with the sweet warmth of acacia honey in this truly seductive combination.
I just cannot describe it better than that!
If anyone is looking for a summer scent, I recommend trying out this counter
