Speaking of affordable, for review today, I have FCUK Summer. After having a FCUK sample that was unlabelled, I started buying a few fragrances from this brand. Thankfully, I paid only around $15 for each. I finally did find it, but it wasn't this one, that will be for a future review. What I am relieved about is that I really like the 4 FCUK perfumes that I own.
Summer is the perfect name for this perfume. Just like the bottle, this perfume represents bright yellow, red and orange. Fruity, effervescent and light floral notes envelope me, especially as it is warmed by my skin. The perfume is grounded by musk, patchouli and amber, these add warmth to the fragrance.
The perfume is blended beautifully, no note outdoes the other, rather compliments.
I'm so glad that my search led me to this perfume. The only gripe I have is the packaging. Not only is it not a bottle that I like the look of, I prefer a styled bottle. I absolutely hate the spray, it can be difficult to depress the top which releases the perfume.
I would like to add some more luxe perfumes to my range, but at least it goes to show that a cheapie can be a winner, too! :)
