Types of Summer Perfume Scents
Ah, the joys of summer! As the world breathes a collective sigh of relief, it's also a time to celebrate. Because almost always, we are offered new surprises, scents, and sometimes even new emotions inspired by the warmth and noble beauty of summer nature.
Whether you’re looking for a cool spritz or a fun beachy scent, we have the perfect summer perfume for you. Experience the summer warmth with our exotic summer perfumes.
A summer scent can be fresh, light, fruity, or citrusy, and can be worn by itself or layered with other fragrances. Generally, the summer scents we enjoy are outdoorsy, and reminds us of the sun, sea, and grassy plains. Occasionally, we also find an urban quality to the scents — one of freshly cut grass, blossoming backyards, and a fresh breeze.
For sunny days, we love perfume notes that are bright and crisp. Think crushed mint leaves and orange blossoms. As the sun goes down, we gravitate towards more sensual scents such as bergamot, rose, and mimosa.
Choosing the Best Summer Perfume
We sweat more when it's hot. As a result, perfume scents fade faster, which calls for longer-lasting summer perfumes. The next time you're at the beach, you might want to put on something more concentrated, like an eau de parfum rather than an eau de toilette.
Hot weather can also mess with your perfume's scent. When it's hot out, you’ll notice more intense notes. For this reason, we suggest going for lighter scents in warmer weather.
What are the best summer perfumes for 2022?
The warmer weather has us looking for lighter, fresher smells to replace the cozier, woodsy notes we've enjoyed all winter. Summer brings new fragrances, and this year with Dossier, you can smell even better than ever.
