If you started writing down everything you love about summer, you will likely have a hard time stopping. The reason is quite simple: there is hardly anything not to love about summer! You must agree that even the intense heat and the sweat it brings are delightful. They’re so characteristically summer that the season would be less than bewitching if it weren’t for the gigantic sun and all the little things happening under it which, together, make summer what it is.
The Lovely Smells Of Summer.
Wouldn’t it be an enchanting experience if you could wear the fragrant rose petals in full bloom or, the uplifting scent of freesia on wrists and at the back of your ears all day long? Summer perfumes let you experience summer wherever you are in the world. Here are 10 scents that will imprint this season’s unforgettable memories:
Chanel Gardenia (US $200 for 15 ml).
From the fashion icon and brand creator who once said, “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future,” Coco Chanel, comes this classic favorite. The original scent was first launched in 1925 with Gardenia as the central focus of the scent. When a product reformulation was achieved in the 1980s, the evidently more subtle scent of the perfume was achieved by blending orange, jasmine, musk and patchouli.
Miu Miu’s First Fragrance (US $90 for 1.7 oz.).
Young and timeless — Two adjectives that oddly go together to describe this scent from Miu Miu, the brand that understands youth and femininity. At the heart of this scent is Lily of the Valley, which is blended with jasmine, green notes and rose with a hint of Akigalawood.
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea (US $29.50 for 1.7 fl. oz.)
The perfect example of subtle woman power, this perfume gives your senses an energizing scent made from a combination of extracts led by green tea, jasmine, amber and cloves. The resulting scent is a wonderful blend of deep citrus with a lingering woody scent as if you are walking in the middle of pine trees in cold climate.
Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia (US $72 for 50 ml).
This is the scent that supermodel, Gigi Hadid confessed to love lingering about her. The name literally means, “water of joy” and depicts exactly that by combining mint, lemon and brown sugar, with hints of pink pepper and jasmine. Feel closer to the clear blue ocean with every spray.
Tom Ford Velvet Orchid (US $120 for 50 ml).
The sensual, intensely floral scent of orchid in this perfume is mixed with deep scents of vanilla and the contrasting citrus scent of an orange blossom. This is the scent for the 20-something-year-old woman who is daring and who wants to be leave an unforgettable impression.
Byredo Gypsy Water (US $230 for 100 ml).
Whereas countless summer perfumes made for the warmer months are made with the ocean and seaside scenes as the central inspiration, this is a scent that is specifically inspired by the lifestyle of gypsies. With a blend of bergamot, juniper berries, lemon and pepper, the resulting scent reminds you of pitching fire in the woods and exchanging stories by the bonfire.
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle (US $94 for 50 ml).
This scent was inspired by no other than Coco Chanel in her youth — sophisticated, smart, ready to conquer the world. For a scent that evokes summer that rather than simply being straightforward floral or citrusy, leaves a deeper, warmer scent that lingers and pleasantly fills your senses.
Victoria’s Secret Love Is Heavenly (US $200 for 1.7 fl. oz.).
Made with lily and mandarin, the sugary musk smell leaves you with a more sensual feeling. It evokes a feeling of a woman who is ready to grow up, afraid but will not be held back.
Aerin Linen Rose Eau de Cologne (US $165 for 200 ml).
Made with the easily diffused citrusy scents of orange and lemon, mixed with the denser and more subtle scents topped by rose and coconut water. This fragrance best fits a woman who knows herself well but who does not crave the spotlight.
Charlotte Ronson Rollerball Oil (US $20).
Combines coconut, sea salt and citrusy scents with mandarin, jasmine and oranges. It leaves a reminder of summer sand and the beach without going overboard.
Scents add personality to your overall image and outfit. No summer can be complete with a perfume in your purse.
