EauMG’s Most Worn Perfumes Summer 2012

Usually I get sad about summer ending. This summer, I’m opening my arms to autumn. This summer has kept me very busy and by my illogical logic, autumn will make things slow down. It will, right?

Even though I’ve been busy, I’ve managed to wear perfume. Here’s the perfumes that I wore the most of this summer:

12 – Moschino I Love Love – This is one that  I forget that I like. It’s a warm citrus woodsy fragrance. It’s very nice and you can find it for cheap at places like Fragrancenet.

11 – Lucy B. Royal Green Fig & Vanilla Woods – This is a coconut fig with warm woods. It’s simple and here’s my review. But, it smells good as a beach scent. When I went to L.A., this is the one that I wore. It retails for $24 at 

10 – Balenciaga L’Essence – My plan was to buy a bottle of this vetiver violet for summer, but I didn’t get around to it. I used up a few samples. I really should buy a bottle of this. It is very well-done. The 1.7 oz bottle retails for $100 at Sephora.

9 – Diptyque Philosykos EDT – It’s fig and I seem to wear this one every summer. Here’s my review. It retails for $120 at Nordstrom.

8 – Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine – I usually hate citrus but this year in the early summer I bought Orange Sanguine. This orange musk is great one for hot days. The gigantic bottle retails for $150 at

7 – Clarins Eau Dynamisante – When it’s really hot and I don’t want to wear perfume, I wear Dynamisante. It’s good stuff. It retails for $50 at Nordstrom.

6 – Narciso Rodriguez Eau Delicate EDT – This became more of my “evening” fragrance for the summer. Here’s my review. This rather large bottle retails for $102 at Nordstrom.

5 – Caron Infini EDT – Space dust. Love it. Here’s my review. It’s available at Caron boutiques.

4 – Hermes Un Jardin Après La Mousson – This one is is something that I wear every summer. I love it’s sheerness. I love how smells like melon and cardamom and Indian desserts. You can usually find it at a great price at Fragrancenet.

3 – DSH Perfumes La Vie en Rose – I had this in a rather large sample and used it up in a week. I sprayed myself like I just didn’t care. It’s a beautiful modern rose with linden. Gorgeous. It retails for $55 at DSH Perfumes.

2 – Heeley Hippie Rose – One of my favorites this summer. Hippie Rose is not a hippie but more boho like Nicole Ritche. It’s a fruity rose with this amazing musk base. It retails for $180 at MiN.

1 – Caron Narcisse Blanc – This orange blossom fragrance has stolen my heart. This is the fragrance that I’ve become. Little EauMG has grown up. This is also available at Caron boutiques.

  1. Love your list! With so many fragrances flooding the market, this gives me a baseline for my next new frag. Now I can print it off and go sniffing for my next smell-good. Thanks

    1. La Vie en Rose is gorgeous. And it is like Paris but better. I feel it’s more modern and the linden in this adds something special.

  2. I’ve bounced around a lot this summer. I don’t feel like in the end I’ve worn any one perfume more than others, but that could be just perception because I have also been testing a lot of new things. But like you, I’m surprisingly looking forward to fall (usually I don’t want summer to end.)

    1. Testing lots of things is fun 🙂
      I have always enjoyed fall but I’ve never really looked forward to it since it means short days and cold weather ahead. This year, I’m ready. I’m over summer 😉
