The Fragrance Shop is supporting Rays of Sunshine’s #WhatIWouldGive campaign this weekend and want to help you spray a little happiness with some of our favourite summer fragrances for everyone.
For 36 hours, from 10am on Sunday 18th April until 10pm on Monday 19th, all donations made to Rays of Sunshine’s fundraising campaign will be DOUBLED! This means any in-store donation made through your transaction or any online customer donation will automatically be doubled and donated to the children’s charity.
We have worked with Rays of Sunshine to help the wonderful team brighten the lives of seriously ill young people across the UK aged three to 18. From meeting idols like One Direction’s Niall Horan or Olly Murs to being James Bond for the day, Rays of Sunshine makes the impossible possible. That’s why we have already donated £25,000 to the fundraiser and are donating 5p from every in-store and online transaction in these 36 hours to Rays of Sunshine!
That means any purchase you make online or in-store from Sunday at 10am ’til Monday at 10pm, you’ll be donating to Rays of Sunshine. So, we thought, what better time to get you shopping for a new summer fragrance, eh?
You can choose to donate 25p with your in-store transaction during these 36 hours or donate online via our fundraising page HERE. Please donate if you can as it will make a huge difference to the children and their families!
Now, let’s get you a new summer fragrance! With 2021 being the year of reclaimed freedom, we thought we’d ditch gendered fragrance this time around to spotlight some of our favourite unisex summer fragrances, both new and old, that would make the perfect signature scent for this summer.
Starting with a summertime classic, Acqua di Parma’s Mandorlo Di Sicilia Eau De Toilette joined the legendary Blu Mediterraneo family in 1999. The Amber-Floral unisex fragrance brings touches of Sicily with the sweet freshness of Bergamot, which opens into a blend of White Peach, Ylang-Ylang and Jasmine. Its velvety, woody base is made up of powdery Bourbon Vanilla, White Musk, and Tolu Balsam, making for a fresh and airy scent for the summer.
Calvin Klein’s 2021 edition of CK One Summer is the 18th iteration of the iconic seasonal scent. This year, it’s an aquatic-citrus scent featuring an effervescent mix of fruity notes from top to base. Top notes of Meyer Lemon and Grapefruit are paired with a sparkling water accord. The woody base is sweetened by Peach Skin, Watermelon and Rhubarb, ensuring its burst of freshness lingers around into the warm summer’s night.
Costa Azzurra is as fresh a fragrance as they come. A new edition of Tom Ford’s Signature Collection scent, the new Costa Azzurra is crafted with complementary accords suited to all. The original’s aromatic Mediterranean essence is given a new crisp freshness with the addition of citrus notes, but its long-lasting base medley of oaks and aromatics stays true to form to capture the easy sensuality of sunkissed escapism.
When it comes to summer fragrances for anyone, Gucci Mémoire D’Une Odeur is a no-brainer. This unisex Eau De Parfum is so unique that a novel fragrance family was established: Mineral Aromatic. Its essence is a combination of airy and musky accords, creating a fragrance equal parts sensual and mysterious with its signature Roman Chamomile. Jasmine Petals, Sandalwood, Cedarwood and Vanilla meet here to create a warm and enticing fresh fragrance with depth. If you haven’t yet been introduced to Mémoire, it’s currently on offer at The Fragrance Shop in all three sizes – 40ml (usually £55.00, now 48.00), 60ml (now £55.00) and 100ml (normally £97.00 now £87.00).
Knowing that we are donating 5p (which will be doubled!) from every online transaction to Rays of Sunshine from 10am on Sunday until 10pm on Monday, now is the perfect time to get ready for summer with one of our selected summer fragrances.
