    The best summer fragrances for women

    Summer is finally here so if you’re looking for a fragrance, what are the best summer fragrances for women?

    The hot season, whether its’s here in the UK or abroad, requires a more subtle fragrance on the skin.

     

    The best summer fragrances for women

     

    Any scent that is too strong or heavy in fragrance notes won’t sit nicely on the skin and will most certainly be off-putting for you as well as those around you.

    All the above fragrance notes speak ‘summer’ and ‘delicate scents’.

    During the heat, we wear lighter clothing so it makes sense to wear a lighter fragrance.

    There are lots of options to wearing a lighter scent when it comes to perfumes and fragrances.

     

    Body sprays for a lighter option

    Body sprays as we have previously discussed work very well when it’s hot. They instantly cool the skin down as well with their delicate mist.

    I have reached for my FM no.20 body mist over the past few weeks when we have seen temperatures read as high as 32 degrees.

    It felt far too hot to be wearing a perfume, especially as our own brand contain 20% pure perfume oil for a longer lasting fragrance.

    EDT is a great option too as these will give off just as good a fragrance but without so much longevity.

    Some women don’t feel fully dressed without a spritz of their favourite scent so having other options is of great benefit.

    If you’re a lover of fragrances, then you will already know just how many there are to choose from.

    It can be very overwhelming, especially if you usually purchase your favourite bottle from the perfume department stores.

    An overlay of scent whilst you try on several brands can give headaches and put you off from buying any.

    We like to have the option to try before we buy, especially if we’re looking for something new and different to our usual smell.

     

    Samples are available to try

    You can try samples before you make a purchase at FM World. Check out our shop here.

    The perfect scents to choose are those that have base notes of the summer scents.

    You don’t want to choose one that smells like summer with its first spray and then has heavy notes as the day goes on.

    By choosing perfumes and scents that have delicate base notes allows for that scent to stay subtle and soft throughout the day without feeling overpowering for you or anyone who walks past.

     

    Let’s take a look at some of the popular fragrance scents that are suitable for the hotter weather.

    1. Crystal Noir- Versace

    Versace launched this fragrance in 2004 with many saying that it was the perfect scent for strolls along the beach.

    Sitting nicely in the flower family of scents, Versace has created the perfect perfume to compliment summer with some of its delicate notes including coconut, orange blossom and musk.

    We automatically feel a summer vibe whenever we smell coconut.

    2. Coco Mademoiselle-Chanel

    It goes without saying that Chanel certainly creates some of the best fragrances that we see online and in the stores today.

    Already sitting in the fruit and floral fragrance family, you will get an instant whiff of fruits, vanilla, white floral and citrus notes. Have you tried FM World’s body spray no 20 that has similar fragrance notes ? Take a look here.

    3. Daisy-Marc Jacobs

     

    Another popular scent that I feel it suitable for all year round and has the most delightful design of bottle is Daisy.

    This perfume was launched in 2007 and has been popular ever since.

    You really do get a feel of fruit and summer with its combination of strawberry, jasmine, vanilla, musk and ruby red grapefruit notes.

    Pop those notes into a bowl and they would make the perfect fruit salad I’m sure!

    It is a perfume that instantly gives a feminine and romantic vibe that can be worn with confidence all year round.

    The wonderful bottle design fits in perfectly with a summer holiday and is a real head turner.

    4. La Vie Est Belle-Lancôme

     

     

    There won’t be many women that haven’t hard of this beautiful scent. With the ever so beautiful Julia Roberts fore fronting such a fragrance since its release in 2012.

    The TV advert reaches our screens every Christmas and certainly makes this scent and bottle memorable.

    A wonderful combination of fragrance notes that no one can resist.

    Black current, pear, orange blossom, vanilla, patchouli and tonka bean notes give this delightful perfume its huge popularity.

    Based on the concept of natural beauty and charm, with another bottle showing off a classy and elegant design bottle.

    5. Flower bomb -Victor & Rolf

     

    Another beautiful scent that is suitable for summer is the wonderful Flower Bomb. Launched in 2005, this distinguished bottle and scent will be found on many women’s dressing tables.

    Popular fragrance notes of jasmine, rose, musk, vanilla and patchouli, gives this scent a real feel for summer and the warmer weather.

    As soon as the top notes hit your nose, there is an instant whiff of sweetness and the vanilla scent pops through alongside the musk and rose.

    Pretty summer dresses and a glass of bubbly set the perfect mood with a touch of this spray on the skin.

    6. Good Girl Gone Bad- Killian

    With an instant smell of rose and amber, this popular fragrance is the perfect fit for a summer holiday. It boosts fruits and a touch of spice to give a real sense of the summer holiday season.

    Another scent to be launched in 2012, Killian has created a fruity and floral gem and as the top notes leave you, there is a wonderful scent of freshness and beach wave memories.

    A popular scent for many women with its feminine and elegant notes. Definitely one to try.

    7. Cool Water Woman-Davidoff

    If you love the smell of fresh air, a summer breeze and the saltiness of the waves crashing over your toes then Davidoff has created the perfect scent to transport you to your next destination abroad.

    This bottle oozes a freshness of lemons, citrus vibes and fruit to give a wonderful scent of nature and beauty.

    Created in 2018, it’s perhaps one of those perfumes that has gone unnoticed in the past and there may be many women who have yet to try it.

    Once the initial top notes have settled down, you are left with a familiar scent of the male version Cool Water. I was very much a fan of the male scent as it wasn’t heavy and had a masculine approach, whilst keeping its scent delicate and clean.

    8. Orange Blossom-Jo Malone

     

     

    This 2003 scent is suitable for both men and women even though it sits in the floral family.

    Being a light fragrance, it is suitable for any occasion with its great balance of fragrance to suit as a gender neutral scent.

    Fragrances notes of mandarin, jasmine, rose, lily and neroli see this perfume gives an instant burst of freshly squeezed clementine oranges.

    A real sense of summer pops through and after the orange has subsided, there is a hint of lemon mixed with flowers to keep the summer feel going.

    It smells of romance and dusky nights sitting by the water watching the sun set.

    9. J’adore -Dior

    If you’re looking for a perfume that instantly smells like the fresh fruit you have bought from the supermarket, Dior’s fragrance is packed with summer fruits.

    Launched in 1999, J’adore boosts fragrance notes of melon, pear, peach, mandarin, orange, bergamot, vanilla, blackberry, plum and violet.

    Perhaps too sweet for some with such a combination of fruits in one bottle but definitely worth a try.

    French for “I love”, this perfume sees Charlize Theron advertising its beauty since its launch.

    10. So Scandal!-Jean Paul Gaultier

     

    This perfume has a wonderfully designed bottle with a slender pair of women’s legs showing on the perfume cap as if she has fallen in to this beautiful scent. Sexual, feminine and a touch of mystery.

    Sitting in the floral/fruity fragrance family, Jean Paul Gaultier has created a scent that is packed with white floral, tuberose, orange blossom and jasmine.

    Captivating the female world with its addictive scent and the kind of bottle that you would want on show off to your partner on your bedside cabinet.

  • Father’s Day,  Gifts

    Father’s Day gifts

    It’s not just mums who have a special day to celebrate. What about Father’s Day?

    It’s just as important a day for many to celebrate and a day for children to show their love for their dad. Also a day for partners to celebrate the father to their children and appreciate them for all that they do.

    Father’s Day gifts
    Dad loves to be spoilt too

     

     

    Fathers carry a very different role when it comes to parenting. Whist the mothers are seen as the first connection and admiration from day one, the men will be the pillar of strength and the disciplinary figure when they come home from work.

    Sometimes fathers don’t get so much of a look in as much as the mums so it’s important to show them just as much love.

    All fathers deserve a celebration of fatherhood and the unique bond they have with their children.

    The commercial side of such celebrations sees companies looking for any excuse to push sales.

    They will always find a reason to give gifts not just for birthdays, Valentine’s and Christmas. It gives the card and gift shops a major boom.

     

    In the UK, Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June and begun back in the early 20th century.

    Founded in the USA, many countries, including the UK, now celebrate this day as they do Mother’s Day.

    Although it wasn’t as popular as other dates, it soon became commercialized in the same way.

    Showing the love with a gift

    It’s just as important to show the dads how much they are appreciated and giving cards and gifts is now a tradition every year, even though it’s not classed as an official holiday.

    It can be more difficult to find something to buy for men and there never appears to be as large a choice on the market as there is for women.

    When children are small and attending school, their teachers will get them to make a special hand made gift to take home to dad. A card with their own writing inside and their own personal drawing to show how much they love their Fathers.

    Father’s Day gifts
    Dad’s play an important role in our lives

     

    Dads love to have something that they can keep.

    As we get older, we start to look further afield for gifts, whist still aiming for uniqueness.

    Every year, my step-dad had a new wallet or a packet of handkerchiefs with his initial embroidered into the corner of the material.

    He seemed to receive the same gift every year from me as I struggled to find something for a dad that had everything !

    Traditional gifts included socks and pants as well as something to go towards their favourite hobby such as golf.

    These days, there is such a variety of gifts suitable for men. Even the fussy ones!

    Father’s Day gifts

    Let’s break away from the traditional gifts and take a look at other, every day products that dads will love.

    Aftershave

    It goes without saying that most men love an aftershave.

    The fresh, crisp fragrance to start the working day or a spritz of their favourite cologne for a night out is a great gift to give dad.

    Men tend not to wear a scent as much as women due to their working environments but this makes it even more special to treat dad with his favourite spray and what better way than an affordable fragrance from FM World.

    Body wash

     

    Every dad loves body wash and when there is an option to buy one that compliments their aftershave, even better!

    Men like to layer their scents so a body wash that leaves the skin feeling fresh with a subtle scent works well with a spray of their favourite fragrance.

    Room diffuser

    If dad works at home or in the office, why not treat him to a scented room diffuser? These have become very popular over the past few years and what better way to say ‘I love you dad’ than with a sleek diffuser fragrance that matches his personality.

    Car freshener

    As we know, men love their cars far more than women!

    We see it as a means of getting from A to B but for the male motor enthusiast, it’s a whole new ballgame.

    Some car fragrances can be very overpowering as soon as you sit in the car so FM World have created ones that compliment a selection of the men fragrances to leave a subtle and comfortable scent in the car for approximately 2 months.

    Treat dad to an affordable car freshener to give a hint of fragrance as he drives to work.

    Wardrobe freshener

     

    Men love their clothes just as much as their cars and if your dad wears a suit or smart clothes to go to work, having a wardrobe freshener to keep their linen smelling fresh works a treat.

    These hangers are the perfect shape to hook over the wardrobe pole and there is also a unisex option if dad has to share wardrobe space with mum.
    Let’s face it ladies, we do need far more space for our clothes than the men! These little gems will last approximately 3 months and are unlimited to where you can hang them.
    Father’s Day gifts
    Every wardrobe deserves a fragrance

    Hair products

     

    Whilst it’s more often than not that women spend far more on their hair and hair products than the men, there are dads out there who still like to use great products too.

    No point in looking smart wearing a classic suit and dads hair is looking dry and unkempt.

    Treat dad to his very own hair products specifically designed for the males so he no longer has to share with the rest of the family.

    Father’s Day gifts

    Antiperspirant

    Alongside wearing aftershave or a perfume, antiperspirant is always a product that is worn and needed.
    This product has one fragrance for men and a unisex one to choose from. They effectively prevent excessive perspiration, perfectly neutralizes unpleasant odours and ensures long -lasting feeling of freshness.

    When dad needs to have guaranteed comfort in every situation and a gentle product for the delicate area of the underarm skin, we have the perfect solution.
    Father’s Day gifts

    Candles

    There are so many candles on the market today and it can be difficult to find one that is suitable.

    Some burn too quickly or unevenly and smoke after a time of being lit.
    When looking for a gift for dad, what better way to keep him feeling relaxed than with a beautiful unisex fragrance candle that both mum and dad can enjoy.
    With a burn time of 35-40 hours and immersed in an elegant glass, our fragrance candle makes the perfect gift for dad.

  • Cologne,  Perfumes

    Where to buy cologne online

    Men rarely shop for their own fragrances so here we’ll show you where to buy cologne online.

     

    It’s very much a female thing, purchasing fragrances.

    Men just wait and see what they have been bought as a gift rather than going into the shops to look for themselves.

     

    Women enjoy browsing the stores as well as online. It’s like retail therapy.

    Retail therapy

    Even when women don’t purchase anything, it’s going out and mingling that is just as enjoyable.

    Men and shopping

    For men, shopping in general is often a quick dash into their chosen shop and if they are looking online, the last thing they’re looking at his cologne.

     

    Show them a website with work tools, golf gear or anything to do with football and they’ll certainly be interested.

     

    There will of course be some men who never wear cologne or aftershave.

    Working from home

    Especially of late, with so many lock downs. Many males are working from home with their office set up in the dining room or a spare bedroom.

     

    Where to buy cologne online

     

     

    The last thing they are looking for is a fragrance. Many didn’t bother wearing one as they weren’t visiting customers’ face to face or having meetings in the office.

    So what about the ones who do like to wear a cologne?

     

     

    Women will definitely have a better idea of how and where to shop for a fragrances and will review all the factors before making a purchase.

    Cost, fragrances notes and sustainability

     

    Men have a narrower idea of things to look out for so will often buy in haste.

    The trouble with buying fragrances quickly and in haste is that mistakes can be made.

    It’s not all about the price tag

    Many will see an expensive price tag and automatically assume that they are going to get a good quality fragrance.

    This isn’t necessarily the case. More affordable fragrances can often be of better quality and longer-lasting.

    Several companies out there have proved just that. One of them being FM Cosmetics.

    As we have covered previously, an expensive price tag is very often linked to the fancy packaging, fancy fragrance design and the celebrity endorser.

    All of these factors add up and can set you back a fair amount in price.

     

    Any Tom Ford fans I’m sure will have come across the range with their hefty price tags, especially when buying direct.

    It’s important not to shy away from the lower priced fragrances simply because they are cheaper.

     

    We already know that the first whiff of a fragrance is not the same notes that we smell by the end of the day.

    Many are led to believe that the first smell of a fragrance is how the bottle will smell during the day.

    This is why it is so important to try fragrance samples first if you can.

    Adding a scent to your skin and leaving it for a few hours will determine if the middle and base notes are just as suitable as the top notes.

    A more suitable option than using fragrance strips as all fragrances will smell completely different once they are on the skin.

    It’s a misconception that fragrances that have floral notes are simply just for women.

    There are lots of men’s aftershaves and colognes on the market that have a floral scent to them even though they are still classed as masculine.

     

    Several that are suitable for women even though they sit in a department store in the men’s section of fragrances.

    These days, we don’t need to be gender conscious.

    A lot of men will be very visual when buying a cologne. They’ll see a bottle that looks masculine, have a whiff of the spray in store and purchase without much hesitation.

    Where to buy cologne online

    They want to be in and out of the shop as quickly as possible.

    With the huge amount of selection that we find in the shops and online today, there are so many scents to choose from.

    Men don’t want to hang about sniffing five or six individual sprays at the perfume counter. Two or three will suffice.

    Typically, they will aim for a brand that they know and once this is in sight, they can then try two or three from that range.

    Men will use several other products before they add any cologne.

    Shower gels, hair gel, deodorant. Perhaps a body lotion too.

    This mixture will all impact the choice of fragrance and not just for the men.

     

    Ladies will also use shower gels, hairspray, hand creams and deodorant. The good news is that there are products on the market that will complement a fragrance.

    Matching deodorant, body sprays and hand cream will ensure that you smell of one fragrance instead of a concoction of scents.

    So let’s take a look at some stores online.

     

    Where to buy cologne online

     

    It goes without saying that FM Cosmetics have a great range of fragrances for men.

    All of their Pure and Pure Royal collection contain 20% perfume. There is also an intense range that contains 30% perfume if you prefer a scent will a bit more stability.

    Samples are available to purchase from Genericperfumes.com  so you can find the perfect scent before you commit to buy.
