What’s On Your Spring/Summer Perfume Wishlist?

Marilyn Monroe birthday

Today is my birthday. For the past few weeks my husband has been nagging me about which fragrances I’d like. Many perfumistas go through funks. I’m in one right now πŸ™ I’m not really loving anything right now or lemming over anything. That being said, I did not request any perfumes. Shocking! But, not Schiaparelli Shocking πŸ˜‰

There are a few perfumes that I’mΒ interestedΒ but I haven’t parted with my cash yet. I’m at the stage where I’m trying to be really picky before bringing in any full-size bottle. I must finish samples and a decant before purchasing. New rules. I do love so many fragrances and I’m revisiting the classics. Oh, and I’m revisiting the beautiful perfumes that I already own πŸ˜‰ If I had to narrow it down to three perfumes at this time that I’m considering buying, it would be:

Tauer L’Air du Desert Morocain EDT – I am in love with this one. And I will purchase a full-size, but I think I’ll wait. This dreamy, perfect blend of spices and amber is so “me”, but I think I’ll wait until late fall to purchase. I see myself wearing it in the most then.

Ormonde Jayne Frangipani EDP – Here’s the deal: I love about 4 different Ormonde Jayne florals right now. I need to narrow it down to one for the summer. Today, I’m thinking Frangipani (my birthday SOTD), tomorrow I may be leaning towards Tiare. I need to spend more time sampling in different environments and weather conditions. The problem is the line is too good and I’m loving too many.

Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia – I need a beautiful gardenia. I love white florals in the summer. And this is a beautiful white floral.

This 3rd slot is really a tie for Frederic Malle En Passant but I need to sample that one much more before declaring my love and devotion.

If you could purchase any perfume to add to your spring or summer fragrance wardrobe, what would it be? I can use inspiration right now.

    1. Oh, have you tried Zeta? What do you think? I want to try it. I think I like linden.

  1. I’m a little weary of scent, but I think it’s just because we still have RAIN and it’s been raining for over a month, and yes there is a day or two without it, but I am so t i r e d of it, which makes me tired of everything.

    But I think if I had to choose, I would want a bottle of No. 19 and Mitsouko (since I’m almost done w/my current bottle of M.)

    I gave away the rest of my LdDM to a friend, so a bottle of that would be nice, as well! But it’s really not a spring/summer frangrance for me.

    Hmmm maybe a bottle of Eau de Merveilles?

    1. I feel your rain pain. It’s been unusually wet, even for here. It has messed with perfume choices and you know, maybe that is my rut that I’m in. It will start to work your nerves.

      One can never go wrong with a bottle of Mitsouko or No. 19. Or Eau de Merveilles. I love its saltiness.

  2. OOh, we’re in the same state of mind! I wore Frangipani last night, and Tiare today! I prefer Tiare, but when it comes down to it, I think I prefer Champaca over Tiare… LOL, it’s such a great line, I think that someday I’d like to own a full bottle of each of the fragrances! πŸ˜€

    My birthday is coming up too, but I don’t think I’m going to ask loved ones for perfume. I’ll probably buy myself the Bois des Iles parfum, now that it’s available in the US, and I’ve had my eye on a bottle of Silences for months now.

    Happy Birthday Victoria! I hope that you have a lovely day!!! πŸ˜‰

    1. Haha, that’s what I’m going through. One day my love is like 1. Frangipani 2. Tiare 3. Champaca and then it switches up the next. I would love to have a bottle of each, maybe one day…

      Silences is usually affordable on discount sites. Those Chanels are going to break me.

      Thank you and happy early birthday πŸ˜‰

  3. I didn’t know it was your birthday today, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Queen V! Now I’m for sure going to throw a few extras in with the package I’m sending you. One thing I need to know: are you interested in a sample of my original bottle of Dior Addict? Or Vivienne Westwood Boudoir?

    What I want more than anything at the moment is a bottle of Penhaligon’s Lily & Spice. I am obsessed with it and no other Lily scent comes close at the moment. Serge Lutens Un Lys was a bust for me.

    One thing I’m really glad I have is that Ormonde Jayne discovery set, because I will want to use all those florals this spring and summer for sure. Come Autumn, I will probably want a bottle of Tolu, and Orris Noir and Woman will need restocking too. Lucky for me, I got extra samples of Tiare, Orris Noir and Tolu thrown in when I ordered my FB of Woman.

    1. Yep, it’s my birthday. I am becoming one of those people that dreads birthdays πŸ™

      I’ll email you. Do you think I’ll like Boudoir?

      I really do like Lily & Spice. Forgot about that one. It’s nice to know that you get samples with purchase. I am loving Frangipani. It’s what I’m wearing today. It’s tiki in a bottle.

  4. Happy Birthday! I wish you to find your next perfume love and add it to your collection.
    As for my wishes… I would definitely buy OJ’s Ta’if Parfum (not EdP). Other than that, I’m not ready to make a FB commitment to any other scents now. But I would settle for several discovery sets from different brands.

    1. Thank you!

      I love Ta’if and I wouldn’t mind a bottle of it either.

      I love discovery sets. They are fun, especially when your hobby is sniffing.

  5. It’s my birthday, too! (5/4, though I’m just a wee bit older than you are…) I’ve gotten quite picky, too. I’m looking for the perfect orange blossom scent at the moment. And wanting a big (and expensive) bottle of Profumum Alba. Neither will be coming my way any time soon, however! No scented gifts from my lovely family and that’s fine! Hope you had a great day!

    1. Hope you had a wonderful day too!

      No, perfumed gifts and that is OK.

      I’m still looking for a perfect orange blossom too πŸ˜‰
