While it's not exactly mandatory to switch up your fragrance with the season, these new perfumes will give you 5 reasons to do exactly that.
The idea of summertime brings to mind long, warm days; carefree, sun-baked holidays; the sound of crickets and sultry evenings spent al fresco. Summer changes the way we feel, often lighter and freer.
And although the current pandemic is doing everything in its power to take that feeling away, perfume holds the power to encapsulate summer like no other. As you're dusting off your espadrilles and shimmying into your favourite sundress, reach for fresh citruses, florals, and other sparkling, zesty notes to wear on your escapades in the sun, salt, and sand.
Ahead, shop 5 new fragrances that fit the bill.
A fresh blend to invigorate the senses, Illusione Pour Femme teams top notes of Italian citrus with a base of warm woods. There’s also bergamot and blackcurrant in there, with orange blossom and green fig at the heart of the fragrance.
A sun-drenched citrus aroma with notes of bitter orange, bergamot, neroli and a base of cedar, ambroxan and moss.
Fresh And Feminine
Musky chypre floral with notes of bergamot, accords of pear and India Jasmine grandiflorum as well as a sustainably sourced rose petal essence created for Lancôme. It will be available in refillable formats, with La Recharge perfume foundations in selected stockists.
A zesty fragrance with notes of bitter and blood orange, white freesia, spicy lily, sandalwood, and musk. The curved bottle is a vintage-inspired gem too.
