What perfume or aftershave should I wear in the summer?

Summer Scents: The summer season is when the sky is bright, the weather is warm and we are full of energy. Going on Holiday? Going on that summer vacation to the med? Whether you're heading to the beach, attending a garden party, or enjoying a casual day out, a summery perfume is great to get you in the mood or to make a memory. We have created a guide to explain what notes to be considered when finding your new summer favourite.

What does the temperature have to do with what type of fragrance you’re wearing?

The summer's heat and humidity can intensify the fragrance aroma chemicals used to compose the formula, making scents overwhelming. Light, fresh, and airy fragrances are better suited for warmer months, as the aroma chemicals blend well with the heat. These scents not only complement the season but also provide a refreshing and uplifting effect.
