    Default Summer Fragrances for My Lovely Wife.

    Just hoping for a bit of feedback on some summer scents for my wife.

    I have some ideas but want to narrow the field.

    This past autumn she bought Chanel Cuir de Russie and she wears it so well.

    I'm wondering if something like Silver Mountain Water or Royal Water by Creed is something worth trying.
    It's not easy to come by in Spain and don't know if it's worth the effort to track it down to try.

    Also, since these are considered unisex (at least on the Creed website) maybe i can use it as well!

    What about Chanel Eau de Cologne or Chanel Beige for a lighter Chanel Exclusif? I don't wear Creed, what I've tested doesn't have what I look for at that price point.

    Saying that, if she wears Cuir de Russie so well, it's bitter enough for hot weather. Why not buy her more? Or even buy her the extrait!

    If my husband bought me CdR I'd be delighted! Then I'd wonder why

    Awww, 'my lovely wife', I like that. Anyway, Chanel Beige is a nice one, great for summer with that honey note in there. Chanel Beige is summer! I want a bottle of that one, eventually.

    I didn't think of Beige. Thanks for the tip. Perhaps we'll try it today!

    The thing is that here in Spain it is REALLY HOT during the summer....40 degrees isn't uncommon. That animal thing about Cuir de Russie becomes a bit cloying at those temps.

    "Lovely Wife"-too cute!
    I did not try Beige but 31 Rue Cambon and No. 22 would work well in the heat in my opinion.

    How difficult are the offerings from L'Artisan Parfumeur and Annick Goutal to find in Spain? Both of these houses sport some very interesting fragrances done with light hand and pretty overall. I would recommend, however, not to buy anything blind without prior testing. I am sure Ausliebe zum Duft (Germany) can accomodate you and your lovely wife with sample packs for a reasonable cost.
