1. Passion by Beguile by Oma
Passion is one of the two fragrances by Nigerian brand, Beguile by Oma and my personal favourite. When I think of summer fragrance in my perfume collection, this can’t but be on the list. I have been using this perfume for some time now and I couldn’t recommend it enough. It’s a floral scent that is sweet and spicy at the same time.
Top notes: Jasmine, bergamot, pink pepper
Mid notes: Rose, violet, orange blossom, and peach/apple
Bottom notes: Cedarwood, vanilla/caramel, patchouli, fenugrec
It’s produced in the United Arab Emirates; if there’s one thing about Arab perfume, they are very long-lasting and are of outstanding quality. It’s definitely the most affordable on this list and dare I say, it’s worth a whole lot more than it costs.

When you think of summer, you also think of a nice tall glass of some lemon squeeze. The Eau de toilette is every bit as satisfying as a glass of lemon water on a hot summer day.

This fragrance is one of the few fragrances from this collection by Replica.
