    The UK is experiencing another pretty rubbish summer so I’m kinda sticking with my usual favourites – Ralph Lauren and Gucci II :/
    I’m off to Spain in a couple of weeks so I’ll buy something more fruity at the airport :)

  2. Avatar of Quynh Quynh

    Currently i’m rotating between baby phat(pink bottle) and lolita lempicka(purple bottle). LL is my main scent and bp is something fresh I use when i’m not going somewhere important.

  3. valentina

    Bronze Goddess EL is my favorite, but I’m using also Aloha Tiar√® Comptoir Sud Pacifique, Youth dew amber nude EL and Vanille coco Coudray

  4. marquita

    I am using D&G light blue, Pink suga uhhh….princess ralph rocks and wild. marc jacobs daisy…I use a lot of different ones everyday

  5. Eva

    My usual, Gucci Rush 2. Works well in warm weather, too. :o)
    Sometimes, if the mood strikes, I use Jil Sander Sun or White Musk from The Body Shop…

  6. Betts

    My summer perfume this year is Eternity Summer 2008, however on colder days, like the last couple of days, I prefer Jil Sander Style.

  7. I am using Chloe and Dior Addict Shine.

    Sometimes I use my Marc Jacobs Daisy.

  8. Kristen Elisabeth

    I’m never big into expensive fragrances. I usually just use body sprays like Victoria’s Secret Love Spell. I just picked up a body spray from Bath and Body Works that is pure coconut and it smells amazing. It’s perfect for summer.

  9. Tanya

    I like using michael by michael kors in summer (tho its winter here in AUS at the mo.)
    I also like anna sui secret wish (the one in the blue bottle w/the fairy on top) and I also like lancome tresor and vera wang princess (not usually cos its a pretty common scent). For special occasions i LOVE chanel coco madmoiselle.

  10. chuarmk

    FlowerBomb by Victor & Rolf

  11. kellie

    I pretty much use the same scent all year long. Chanel Chance. My boyfriend got it for me for my birthday. I love when I’ve just put it on and I go up to him and he says I smell nice.

  12. jesstooimpress

    idk if these are really summer scents, but ralph lauren lauren style & versace bright crystal.

  13. i usually stick to my norms, Dior’s Dunne or Lolita Lempicka…but the big hit i have is M by Mariah Carey. I swear if one more random person asks me what I have on…I am just going to have to do my own personal ad for Mariah. LOL

  14. von

    DKNY Red Delicious…I love fruity scents, especially in the spring and summer, so that one is my favorite right now

  15. Rubi

    I am wearing Lancome’s Benghal, got it in Mexico and also D&G One.

  16. Sadie

    Versace (the pink AND the yellow bottle are both delicious, my new FAVORITES!!) and Ralph Lauren (blue bottle).

  17. TUPRNUT

    I go between Marc Jacobs Grapefruit splash and Ralph Lauren Hot – love them!

  18. Fie

    I rotate between DKNY Be Delicious (the green one) and Thierry Mugler Innocent. :D I love both of them, they smell yummy. Malaysia is a tropical country so..it’s like summer all year round but with rain :/

  19. Kathleena

    I am using Victoria Secret body mist in Halo.

  20. lisa

    Dkny red delicious for sure.

  21. Laney

    DKNY Be Delicious (Green), Aquolina Pink Sugar, Valentino White, Clinique’s Happy, EL Pure White Linen Breeze, EL Beyond Paradise Blue, EL Pleasures (original), Lavender Essential Oil, Lucky No. 6… I used to work as an MA for Estee Lauder at Macy’s, so I snatched up a bunch of perfume with the employee holiday discounts : D

  22. HeavenLeiBlu

    I’ve laid off of my staple, Egyptian Musk oil for a bit, and have been alternating between Clean ( by D’Lish), B&BW Fresh Pineapple Splash, and VS Pure Sedcution Splash. I’m trying to lighten it up a bit because is soooooooo hot this summer.

  23. DevilishDoll

    I only use fruity scents, so my fave right now is Dessert Treats Banana Split. It’s discontinued, but I still have a couple bottles of it.

  24. kleri

    Beyond paradise – Estee lauder

  25. laura

    My staple is fcuk Her, but I’ve been on a perfume buying spree lately! I tested Marc Jacobs Daisy and loved it, but sadly it fades super fast :-( I’m currently testing a sample of Anna Sui Secret Wish. I also just bought Kenzo Amour because I fell in love at first wiff when I tried it by chance at the store :-)

    • Nice! It’s too bad Daisy faded on you. I recently purchased it, but I haven’t really worn it much yet… will have to note how it fades on me.

  26. Asta

    I’ve been wearing Bond No. 9 Chinatown because I finally picked up a decant. It’s not particularly summery but I looooove it. Unfortunately now I must have a bottle, which is going to kill my wallet. I wear Valentino Rock N Rose during the day since it’s light, and I’m testing Marc Jacobs Daisy and Stella right now. Thank god for samples at Sephora!

  27. Asta

    When I don’t wear perfume, I’ve actually been getting compliments on the scent from my new Lush products: Big shampoo and American Cream conditioner! I can’t smell it, but others can.

  28. Sandy

    Right now I’m using CK In2U.

  29. Light Blue, Tommy Girl 10, Bvlgari Rose Essentielle at nights, Miss Sixty =)

  30. Liz

    I’m a HUGE fan of Arrogance Mix (lime, sugar) which I picked up last year at Sephora – it’s my (almost) daily scent! Light, wearable and delicious… it’s an EDT so I can spritz directly without being overpoweringly scented. I’m also loving MAC Turquatic lately.

  31. Courtney

    I’ve been rotating through four: Sheer Stella (2007 version), D&G Light Blue, MJ Daisy, and Dior Addict Shine. Addict Shine is by far my favorite!

  32. Christie

    I’ve been using Marc Jacobs Daisy. I love it!

  33. Annie

    My Gucci Rush!

  34. April

    Escada Moon Sparkle. Yuuuum.

  35. amy

    It’s not quite a perfume, it’s more of a body spray. It’s Victoria’s Secret Sexy Little Things fragrance mist! It smells so fresh!

  36. cloudburst

    I bought MAC Turquatic Heat & am wearing it when I go out – it’s nice for warm nights.

  37. M1st4eva

    I mostly wear Burberry Weekend – an oldie, but a goodie- and Givenchy’s Very Irresistible. I want to get Marc Jacobs’s Daisy. I adore its fruity, flirty scent

  38. Selene

    Burberry Brit. my mom bought it for me for Christmas and it has become my signature scent. i love the vanilla notes. :D

  39. Latia

    I’ve just stumbled upon Fresh’s Limon and Honey scent..I love it, but the boyfriend hates it…

    The boyfriend got me some Ed Hardy-Love Kills Slowly and I Luuuurrrve it. It’s been my signature scent since.

    Also, at times I wear B-Spot by Benefit. It’s a nice change from the day to day floral of Ed Hardy. When I want something a little more clean and delicate, I wear this one.

  40. I’m actually falling in love with some classical and fresh scents:
    L’escale √† Portofino, Dior. It’s such a beautiful fresh eau de cologne with zesty lemon scent.
    Acqua di Parma “Iris nobile”, lightly and romantic, just for evening.

    Sometimes i use also Guerlain Aqua allegoria “Mandarine-Basilic”, i bought it last summer and the bottle is quite empty.

  41. I’m currently shifting back and forth between Kenzo Amour (my all-time HG for daytime wear) and DKNY Be Delicious.
