I'm obsessed with fragrances, and this £31 perfume is my summer go-to

I've been wearing it non-stop

I'm not afraid to admit that collecting perfumes has become a bit of a hobby for me. I love trying out new fragrances, especially during the summer months. However, it's no secret that some of the best perfumes for women can set you back a small fortune.

That's why I was so intrigued when I came across Caudalie's affordable range of fragrances. I have been a fan of the French brand's skincare for years. From face serums to eye creams, their products are firm favourites in my beauty routine, so I knew I had to try a Caudalie perfume out.

The Fresh Fragrance collection features five scents that take you on a journey to the vineyards in Bordeaux where the brand began. My personal favourite? Thé des Vignes.

The scent has been created exclusively for the brand by master perfumer, Jacques Cavalier.

Not only is it beautiful to wear, but the bottle itself is a work of art. The slim shape makes it ideal for throwing into your handbag before heading out the door, and I love taking it on holiday with me as it's so easy to pack.

Although the scent is more on the subtle side, it has impressive lasting power, and if I wear it throughout the day, all I have to do is a quick top up before heading out in the evening. 

Although Thé des Vignes is my personal favourite, there are four other scents as part of the collection to suit everyone.

No matter whether you like fresh scents or floral scents, I guarantee that you will find one that you love.
