Today I will be giving some suggestions for summer scents, but keep in mind; there are no real rules when it comes to choosing a fragrance.

This classification generally refers to a traditional fresh or floral composition that is enhanced by marine notes during the evaporation process. This particular group of scents offers a lot of excellent options for the warmer months as these marine notes tend to be quite complementary with the hot summer sun and long days at the beach.

Even if you do not like her music you have to admit country singer Taylor Swift is a talented songwriter whose sense of style is age appropriate and fashionable—for some reason, don’t ask me why, I am a fan of her sweet, cute, feminine and not over-the-top look. I guess it is only makes sense then that her first perfume, Wonderstruck, mirrors her style.
