How to Pick your Summer Perfume

Hey what’s up, what’s up!?! So choosing your ideal summer perfume can be fun but challenging, as you want something that smells fresh and light but also lasts long in the heat. Fragrance is also personal so you want to make sure you pick something that works for you.

When choosing a summer fragrance, it’s important to consider your personal style and preferences. There are no right or wrong answers, so experiment until you find a scent that you love. Here are some easy tips for picking a summer perfume.

Tips for Choosing your Summer Perfume

  • Look for light and fresh scents: Summer perfumes should be lighter and fresher than your winter fragrances. Think of scents like citrus, floral, and aquatic notes.
  • Consider the occasion: The type of perfume you wear can depend on the occasion you’re wearing it for. For example, a light, citrusy scent may be perfect for a daytime brunch or picnic, while a floral or musky fragrance may be more suitable for a summer evening party.
  • Test the fragrance: It’s essential to test the fragrance on your skin before making a purchase. Scents can smell different on different people, and it’s important to ensure that the fragrance works well with your body chemistry.
  • Think about the lasting power: Summer perfumes should last long in the heat. Look for fragrances that have notes of musk, amber, or sandalwood, which tend to have a longer lasting scent.
  • Consider the season: Think about the climate you’ll be in during the summer months. If you’re in a humid climate, you may want to avoid heavy, overpowering scents. Similarly, if you’re in a dry climate, you may want to choose a perfume with more moisturizing properties.
  • Do Experiment: Summer is a great time to experiment with different scents. Don’t be afraid to try something new and see how it works for you!

Summer Fragrance Notes

In case you were wondering about specific notes that say Summer: the best summer fragrance notes are those that are light, fresh, and uplifting. They should evoke images of the beach, ocean, and sun. Some popular summer fragrance notes include:

  • Citrus: Citrus scents like lemon, lime, grapefruit, and orange are perfect for summer. They’re refreshing and invigorating, and they help to wake you up on a hot day.
  • Floral: Floral scents are another great choice for summer. They’re feminine and delicate, and they can add a touch of sophistication to your look. Some popular floral notes include jasmine, rose, lily of the valley, and honeysuckle.
  • Fruity: Fruity scents are also a good option for summer. They’re sweet and playful, and they can help to create a carefree and relaxed atmosphere. Some popular fruity notes include watermelon, pineapple, mango, and peach.
  • Green: Green scents are earthy and fresh, and they can help to ground you on a hot day. Some popular green notes include mint, rosemary, basil, and eucalyptus.
  • Aquatic: Aquatic scents are inspired by the ocean, and they’re perfect for days spent at the beach or by the pool. Some popular aquatic notes include sea salt, seaweed, and kelp.
