You already know how to choose your perfume and where to put it for the optimal sniffing purposes. But do you know which scents are best for each season? Whether you’re a professional perfumer or a rookie, there are tips for picking the best scent for this time of year.
Sweet, flowery scents are best for spring, since these perfumes evoke the smells of the blossoms and flowering plants you might see in nature around this time. In the summer, most people look for something light and refreshing, since the alternative can be a bit much when the weather is sweltering. Instead, just a few light citrus notes like grapefruit, mandarin or lime would do the trick.
Now that the weather has cooled down, you can wear more saturated scents with more body. Subtly musk, warm vanilla and woody notes are perfect for fall. Try Lancome’s Tresor in Love, which has fresh peach, tart nectarine on a base of woody cedar. Also great for fall is Miss Dior Cherie, which has a deep chypre, a fresh, citrusy note with jasmine and patchouli.
