Our favourite niche perfumes for this season!
Summer is here! Time to put aside your dark, wintery perfumes and make room for summery ones. Some fragrances are airy and can be worn all year round. However, most, like clothing, are seasonal. But how do you know which perfume is suitable for summer and which is not? There are several factors to consider. Think about the fragrance notes (are they typical for the summer), the composition (how is the perfume made up) and the scent family (does the scent family fit the summer). To make it easy for you, we've put together a list of our favourite summer fragrances.
How unique do you want to smell this summer?
In the world of perfumes, citrus is one of the most typical notes for summer perfumes. This fresh accord has many perfume ingredients derived from different fruits. Orange and mandarin have sweeter characters, bergamot smells elegant and bittersweet. Meanwhile, lemon smells fruity and fresh, obviously. A sparkling citrus-fresh perfume is indispensable in a summer perfume wardrobe.
Temperatures are rising, and that makes for sultry summer days. Do you want to stand out? Then wear a sensual perfume that smells elegant. Many people associate warm perfumes with winter, but nothing is less true! With the right composition, aromatic fragrances are actually refreshing on a hot summer day.
Romantic Orange Blossom
What could be more romantic than a picnic under a big orange blossom on a mild summer day? Orange blossom and neroli smell citrusy, warm, sunny and romantic. Both notes are made from the white blossom from the orange tree. Orange blossom is a little sweeter and more floral than neroli and has something similar to the rich scent of jasmine.
A day at the beach or by a large clear lake, enjoying the sun. The scent of sunshine - creamy, lactonic, sweet - evokes buttery and full accords of tuberose, wood notes, coconut and sandalwood. Heavy milky fragrance notes are often used to mimic the scent of sunscreens.
