Summer calls for light, fresh and fruity scents. Put away your deep, woody fragrances and warm musks until the cooler months roll back around, and instead embrace citrus and floral perfumes when the weather heats up. I've rounded up my favourite summer perfumes that are completely natural, helping you smell your best, wherever the season takes you, without the nasty ingredients found in mainstream perfumes.
