Philosophy: Summer Grace

The amazing heat wave might have cooled down for a bit, but when it was on I discovered this gorgeous fragrance from Philosophy – Summer Grace. Firstly, how adorable is the name? It just conjures up images of skipping through meadows in floaty dresses without a care in the world. Not that I’m really the meadow skipping type (my hay-fever would go mental) but still… love it when a fragrance name or ad feels like it has a personality that goes with it.
To me, the description of this as a warm, bright floral is perfect. It feels like flowers that are warm from the sun. There’s something comforting and cosy about it, whilst still feeling very summery. Almost like the feeling of a Summer evening, when it’s starting to cool, but you’re still warm from the day of sun.
I can throw around as many summer fantasies as I like – at the end of the day it’s still best to check out a fragrance in person to see what you think. But personally, I’m loving this as an every day scent (especially with the moisturiser and fragrance layered)
The gift set is £42, the fragrance on it’s own is £32. For more info see the Philosophy website.
