Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer is quickly approaching. Pack away those heavy colognes and choose a perfume perfecto to wear in summer as the temperature soars. The experts at FragranceX.com have curated our favorite warm-weather fragrances to enjoy all summer long.
Since its launch in 1996, Acqua di Gio has been a best seller and for good reason…it is a crowd pleaser especially during the summer months. This clean fresh aquatic scent by Giorgio Armani opens with a brisk bergamot and green tangerine before settling into a warm woody drydown.
Are the beaches beautiful on the French Riviera? Mais Oui! O de Lancome captures ocean breezes wafting freesia and water lily in the 1978 classic composed by Serge Mansau. We detect notes of vodka and Clementine, so wear it don’t drink it “Sur la Plage”.
Carefree, uncomplicated fragrances are perfect for summer. Try one that leaves you feeling as fresh as a Daisy. Marc Jacobs Daisy Sunshine is a bright fruity floral scent that opens with a sweet bite of red currant and candied apricot before blooming into a summer garden of lily and gardenia. We love Marc Jacobs signature l bottle with daisies adorning the stopper.
What to wear on a sultry summer night? We suggest the luxurious Versace Eros with notes of lemon, peony and creamy sandalwood. This is a fragrance that softly shimmers, but stays sophisticated and sensuous until dawn. For him try Eros Cologne by Versace for men. Warm woody notes and citruses meld in this aromatic fragrance with hints of crisp green apple, herbaceous geranium and clean, cooling mint.
Jaune is the French word for yellow and the bright effervescent citrus cocktail for men, Lacoste Eau De Lacoste L.12.12 Jaune is a great scent to wear outdoors on sunny days and for sport. With juicy apple and grapefruit it is as classic as the alligator logo on the iconic Lacoste polo shirt.
While we may dream of a vacation to an exotic isle, the closest most of us will get to the sun and surf of the coast of Italy is the fluorescent lights in our office and a postcard from Sicily over our desk. To capture the essence of the dolce vita, we enjoy spritzing Dolce Gabbana Light Blue Escape To Panarea a woody citrus scent bursting with Bergamot, orange blossom, heady jasmine and pear which dries down to sexy patchouli and musk base.
