Finally it’s Summer, we have waited all year for these long Sunny days and warm light evenings – wearing sandals instead of boots, wearing dresses with no jackets required, sipping Pimm’s instead of hot chocolate, Oh Summer you are so welcomed! One thing I love about Summer, infact any Season, is finding my Seasonal Scent. Smells such as spice and cinnamon for example make me think of Winter and I just love to fill my home with the fragrances that compliment the Seasonal weather, feel and aromas. I love to switch my perfume with each Season, and to me Summer is all about the smell of the beach, the fresh mornings and going on holiday, and this fragrance Eau Dynamisante by Clarins is Summer in a beautifully packaged red bottle. Whenever I spray Clarin’s Eau Dynamisante it just makes me think of everything that encapsulates my love of this longed for Season and it is so light and fresh that its not hard to instantly fall for it, infact whenever I wear it I often get complimented on it.
Originally released in 1987 this is more than just a fragrance it is also a skin treatment with a blend of 14 aromatherapeutic plant extracts and essential oils.
The Scent – I feel this is the perfect Summer fragrance and one that is ageless and timeless. A classic, light and fresh scent that’s long-lasting and easily wearable. An everyday scent that’s invigorating and one that works a treat in hot countries too, nothing to heavy or sweet.
- Op notes: Coriander, caraway, orange, petitgrain, Amalfi lemon
- Heart notes: Carnation, cardamom, rosemary, thyme
- Base notes: Patchouli
Insect Repellent? – I have read and heard on many occasions about this perfume being one that seems to repel mosquitoes, and after wearing this for some time this is something I can confirm too. I have worn this in the height of ‘mozzie season’ in Spain where I am normally the person who seems to be on a mosquitoes menu, particularly in the evening. Whenever I have worn this perfume I have to say it has worked a treat, whilst I have still suffered the odd bite I have been nowhere near as bitten as I have previously. I find the key is to spritz it all over and then rub a little round the ankle area and this sure smells an awful lot nicer than mosquito repellents. I find it reassuring knowing that whilst I enjoy my evening meal with a glass of red watching the sunset on the coast of Spain that atleast I won’t be attracting the mosquitoes like some fragrances can.
Eau Dynamisante Value Kit – The Value Kit is available from Clarins directly and is currently priced at £34.00 which I think really is fantastic value for money. The Value Kit includes the Eau Dynamisante Fragrance in a 100ml Spray with the beautiful Limited Edition print on the bottle, a 10ml Eau Dynamisante refillable spray (which is the perfect handbag size) and an equally beautiful Eau Dynamisante Purse which is an ideal toiletry bag for travel.
If you are on the look out for a new Summer Scent I highly recommend a spritz of this next time you pass a Clarins Counter. I would also love to know your Scents of the Summer x
