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. It is easy when it comes to fragrance and style in general to feel locked in to a certain style cell. You may fit into none of these categories and you may fit into a different one any given the day of the week. Just remember to choose the fragrance that you are happy with and if you change your mind, you can always switch it up tomorrow!
Are you a tough, outdoorsy or fitness obsessed lady who spends her summers running marathons and pumping iron? Are you in the gym on a daily basis sculpting that perfect beach body? Superhuman fitness goddesses convey vitality and energy not only through their appearance but also through their scent. Adidas Pure Lightness is a clean and classic floral that is refreshing and won’t mix with your natural scent in a way that is unpleasant or overbearing. Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani is an invigorating and free spirited fresh floral that will cool you down and keep you smelling wonderful even as you’re running miles and scaling mountains with its excellent sillage and longevity.
Romantic hearts looking for summer loving may use their fragrance as a kind of love potion. Sweet, sultry scents are perfect picks to accompany you while you play the leading lady in your own love story. Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme is sensual, soft and creates an absolutely intoxicating aroma that might just captivate your very own prince charming. Pleats Please by Issey Miyake is a flirty and fun fragrance that makes for a great first impression and date night fragrance with its deeply feminine and inviting aroma.
Do you spend your summers at the yacht club sipping low calorie cocktails and fanning yourself absentmindedly as your jewels glisten in the sun? Or do you just wish you did? Invoke the essence of pearls and cashmere on the tennis court with sophisticated fragrances such as Ivoire De Balmain which is a luxuriant woody, green scent that oozes elegance and screams class. Mon Jasmin Noir by Bvlgari is another excellent choice to exude an air of class as well as a bit of sass.
Do you spend your summer nights dancing and partying and your days recovering from those nights? Well, why not?! It’s summer, after all which is the perfect excuse for living in excess and giving in to your hedonistic tendencies. You’ll want to smell like a million bucks while you party it up, no doubt. Express your lust for life with sexy, exciting scents like 212 VIP by Carolina Herrera which is a gorgeous blend of rum, vanilla and musk among other sexy notes. Bombshell by Victoria’s Secret is also a great pick when you want to exude sexuality and confidence and will transition well from day to night.
Polished and Posh
Are you ultra-glamorous and seemingly effortlessly put together even when the rest of us are sweaty and frizzy? A polished princess like you might enjoy Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker which is a unique blend of notes that come together to form an exquisite aromatic scent that will make the perfect accessory to your expertly curated outfit. White Patchouli by Tom Ford is a clean and refined scent that will complement nicely your impossibly impeccable style that makes the rest of us a bit jealous.
Summer isn’t all fun and games for everyone, of course. From powerful business women making moves in the boardroom to independent ladies who run their own show, these no nonsense business babes exude strong, powerful energy and need a fragrance to match. Eau Des Merveilles by Hermes is chic yet subtle enough for office wear. Boss Femme by Hugo Boss is not only an excellent play on words for a business lady’s fragrance, but genuinely a lovely scent to make a professional, yet approachable impression on those around you.
Are you a busy, on-the-go mama with your hair in a ponytail, flip flops flopping as you run from one activity to the next? Or maybe you just have that natural beauty and like to get up and go without putting much thought into your outer appearance. It only takes a spritz or two of an attractive and easy going fragrance to brighten your mood and add a little spring to your step. Keep it fresh and simple with Jovan White Musk. Giorgio by Giorgio Beverly Hills is great for a casual pick me up fragrance. If the classics feel a bit too matronly for you, you can’t go wrong with Burberry Brit Summer which is a refreshing, bright take on the classic. To put it simply; you will smell great!
For chilled out ladies who like to spend their summers soaking up the sun and getting their hands dirty creating life in the garden, wholesome naturalistic scents will go well with your gardening hat and crocs. Kenzo’s Parfum D’ete is a wonderfully bright, green scent with an artsy flair. Truth by Calvin Klein is composed of earthy elements such as bamboo, vetiver and clover which create a simple, natural summer scent.
