Best Back to School Perfumes and Colognes
Summer is winding down, and there is a few more trips to the beach before you head to the hallowed halls or dorm. Back to school is a start of a new year filled with new friends, new clothes, and new books and of course new fragrances. These seven scents go to the head of the class (and won’t break the bank, so you’ll have plenty of allowance left for concerts).
Start a new semester with a new scent that does double duty. Calvin Klein Euphoria for women is a beautiful balance of ripe summer fruits and lush green accords. Pomegranate and persimmons meld into a creamy base of amber and sandalwood as the last gasp of summer meets autumn. We think he’ll be tapping on your shoulder for a different set of notes. For him, the symbol of fall is a wool scarf; he will be cool but cozy in Burberry for him with top notes of lavender and cooling mint resting on a smoky base of amber and sandalwood. Study Hall never smelled this good.
Katy Perry Killer Queen is a new take on floral with notes of dark plum, berries and praline. Hand that girl a crown and scepter as she rocks Home Coming.
It smells like School Spirit !!! For him take a page from Antonio Banderas’ woody oriental for men that is a s cozy and comfy as a varsity jacket, with notes of amber, incense, spices and apple…for teacher of course.
Reach for Dolce Gabbana for Her, a grown up gourmand with hints of marshmallow, raspberry and vanilla. Soft enough for study hall, with a lingering trail of musk; this is one scent that is sure to catch his attention. For him, keep it cool with Davidoff Cool Water fresh, clean cologne for every day and a great scent for sports. No sitting on the bench wearing this marine scent with masculine woody notes. If you think vanilla is for your little sister, think again. Studies show that young men are attracted by its scent. Skip the candy and go flirtynot foody. Coty Vanilla Musk is a not TOO sweet perfume with a hint of musk that strikes the right balance between “I am yours” and “I’m hard to get”.
