Best Scents for the Summer

As we all know, being inside the house for a long period of time can be a little draining. We oftentimes use great scents as a tool to adjust our moods like candles, incents and more. Nothing can get rid of the quarantine blues like the smell of a great fragrance. Here are a few spring and summertime fragrances that are sure to brighten your mood.

Versace’s Bright Crystal is a sweet and fresh scent that is perfect for both the spring and summertime. This fragrance includes notes of musk, iced accord, yuzu, pomegranate, peony, magnolia, lotus flower, acajou, and vegetal amber. Bright Crystal contains a light fruity scent that gives the fragrance a very youthful vibe. The wear-time on this fragrance is about 5 hours with 4-5 sprays. This is the perfect daytime scent for those warm summer months.

Amazing Grace Magnolia by Philosophy is a beautiful floral scent with a mix of sweet and woody notes. This fragrance is light enough for the day time but still deep enough for nighttime wear. The notes in this scent include bergamot, nectarine, sweet magnolia, violet, warm musk, solar amber, and driftwood. This fragrance has a wear-time of about 6 hours with 7-8 sprays.

Escada’s Miami Blossom is a fun and flirty fragrance that is guaranteed to capture everyone’s attention. This tropical scent will have you feeling like you’re on an island vacation even if you’re just sitting in your living room. Miami Blossom contains notes of watermelon, orange, blueberry, pineapple, tiare flower, sandalwood, jasmine, tuberose, and musk. This fragrance has a wear time of 6 hours with 5-6 sprays.

Burberry Her is a sophisticated floral perfume that is perfect for the office, church or any type of social event. It is a luxuriously bold fragrance but not overbearing.

This Winter’s Must-Have Fragrances for Women

Nothing brightens up a cold and gloomy day like the sweet smell of your favorite fragrance. Here are a few must-have scents that will last through the rain, sleet, and snow.

1.) Alien by Thierry Mugler is a dark yet sensual scent that is perfect for a night out on the town. It is a floral woody fragrance that encompasses notes of jasmine, amber, and cashmere wood. This fragrance is both unique and alluring with a wear time of about 10 – 12 hours with 2-3 sprays.

2.) Dylan Blue by Versace is a fruity yet floral fragrance with top notes of black currant, granny smith apple, and clover. This is one of those scents that can be worn anywhere, at any time. While the fruity notes make this fragrance soft enough for day time wear, the musky notes make it strong enough to last up to 8-10 hours with 4-5 sprays.

3.) Fever by Jimmy Choo is a warm and spicy scent with a hint of fruitiness that makes it the perfect fragrance for both work and date night. This perfume has top notes of black plum, litchi, grapefruit, sandalwood, and tonka bean. This is another sensual scent that will last up to 10-12 with 3-4 sprays.

4.) Marc Jacobs Decadence is a sexy and sophisticated perfume with notes of plum, Bulgarian rose, jasmine, and amber. This floral- woody fragrance is great for both day and night wear. The eye-catching bottle is just as beautiful and luxurious as the fragrance inside. This scent has a wear time of 9-10 hours with 4-5 sprays.

5.) Baccarat Rouge 540 by Maison Francis Kurkdjian is the top of the line when it comes to long-lasting scents. This floral-woody fragrance will have a trail of people following behind you asking “what’s that scent?”  Baccarat Rouge 540 is filled with notes of jasmine, saffron, cedarwood, and ambergris. Unlike the previous scents, Baccarat is a unisex fragrance with a wear time of 13+ hours.

All of the fragrances that were mentioned above are Eau de parfums. Eau de parfums have a fragrance concentration between 15-20%, which makes them last longer than any Eau de Toilette, Eau de Cologne, and body spray. So before you bundle up and run out the door, spray a little of your favorite winter fragrance and watch it brighten up your whole day.
