This £19 Nivea sun perfume smells exactly like summer

While we might not be able to go anywhere hot or exotic this year (sob), that doesn’t mean we can’t bring the summer vibes to us instead. The smell is one of the most emotive senses, so if you want to feel like you’re on holiday, you’re going to need to smell like you are. From the salty sea to that instantly recognisable whiff of suncream, the power of smell can transport you and this £19 Nivea Sun Perfume will take you straight to the beach.

Thankfully, Nivea is making that easy to achieve with the release of its brand new summer-scented perfume. Evoking happy memories of ‘sunshine, love and pure joy’, Nivea Eau Du Toilette contains notes that echo the fragrance of the original Nivea Sun suncream.

Everyone knows that iconic unmistakable scent – the fragrance was developed in 1994 by the perfumer Jean-Paul Pons especially for the Nivea Sun skin protection line of products and has stayed unchanged ever since. With that same fragrance mixed into the perfume, Nivea Sun EDT can bring back wonderful memories of lazing on the beach with sun-kissed skin and not a care in the world (except for what ice cream flavour you’ll have that afternoon).

Capturing the essence of summer within a round yellow bottle (which looks like the sun itself), the perfume contains refreshing green top notes that mingle with notes of sparkling citrus and rich, sunny florals to truly invigorate the senses with every spritz. The velvety, powdery-warm base note blends perfectly to capture that feeling of warm, bronzed skin.

Available on Amazon, the 30ml perfume costs just £19.79 and has already earned itself a 4.2 star rating out of 5. One happy reviewer claimed it is ‘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.’

This is not the first time Nivea has infused new products with the recognisable scent of Nivea suncream – last year the brand released the Nivea Shower Gel with Aloe Vera in the scent ‘Sunshine Love’, and it too evokes memories of happy days at the beach. Use this in the shower, then spritz with the Nivea Sun perfume once dry and you’ll instantly feel like you’re on holiday (if you shut your eyes).
