Citrus and berries, FTW!

The combination of citrus and berry notes is fool-proof and magical. The zest and energy of the citrus elements complement the light and feminine berry notes to create sunshine in a bottle! If you’re someone who isn’t sure of what summer scent would suit you best, blindly reach for a perfume with this combo and you’re good to go.

Keep it interesting

While citrus notes always add a burst of freshness (which we love), they’re also a tad bit overdone. Add layers and character to your scent by keeping an eye out for quirky notes; salt notes in particular add a wonderful depth to fragrances, while vetiver notes add mystique.

For those who like it sweet

Sweet fragrance lovers notoriously have a hard time during extra sunny months. Sweet fragrances smell even sweeter in hotter weather, making them too nauseating for some people to handle. You can still go for cozy vanilla notes, just make sure they have deeper base notes that help tone down the sweetness.

Why stop at body scents?

Hair mists are incredibly underrated! There are many alcohol-free hair mists that not only smell divine but also nourish your hair. Many of these fit right into the playful Summer mood and are instant mood-boosters.

Formulation matters

When it comes to Summer, any perfume you wear will come across more intensely. If you’re not going to be outside for long, reach for an eau de toilette that lasts for unto 4 hours. For days that are going to be more hectic, an eau de parfum would work best.
