Pina Coladas, salty sea water, and sun cream: these are the smells of summer we all will likely miss this year, if we choose to avoid air travel and forgo the yearly holiday. There’s nothing quite like that fresh, fruity, exotic scent that accompanies a beach trip, but luckily, Nivea has just what we all need if you’re feeling nostalgic for that smell.
Earlier this year, the brand launched their Nivea Sun fragrance, which fans have been praising for its incredible sun cream smell. One happy reviewer claimed it was ‘the best perfume I have ever bought.’
‘I usually only wear Chanel but this has converted me. So fresh and light…nothing cheap or artificial. Subtle and classy. I love it,’ they continued.
The little round yellow bottle was also given top marks for its purse-friendly price; at £25, it’s far cheaper than many of its high-end, designer alternatives.
Luckily, Nivea have now made it possible to smell this fragrance all-day long in your home, with the introduction of their Nivea Sun Diffuser. The home scent is available to buy on Amazon, where it is described in the following manner: ‘The oil diffuser with a fresh citrus cocktail, sunny floral notes and a velvety powder aroma creates an unmistakable summery scent experience.’
The product, which comes in a bright and happy orange container, is even cheaper than the EDT at £20, making it just as accessible. If you’re missing the beach-side feeling of summertime, this home scent will take you there in an instant.
And if you’re really enjoying the Nivea scent of the summer, the brand also has a shower gel so you can even incorporate it into your wash routine. The Sunshine Love Shower Gel has the original Nivea scent and is infused with aloe vera to keep skin soft and soothed. It already has a load of positive reviews, with one fan writing:
‘This has the most gorgeous scent when you use it in the shower. It doesn’t smell much when you smell it from the bottle but trust me it is really nice. It has summery feel to it but I can’t describe the fragrance. Also, it’s not drying on the skin & has some moisture to it.’
The shower gel is even more affordable than the other products too, at a mere £1 per bottle. Bargain!
