The Scent of Summer

It is officially Summer, even though it’s felt like it for the last month! If you know me you know that I'm all about scents I can never have enough cologne. Its like I hoard them and I can never have less than five at a time. I know I'm crazy right?! When it's warmer we tend to lean towards scents that are fresher, lighter, cleaner in hopes that maybe it'll cool us down, much like during the colder months we lean towards scents that are warm and richer. Wearing a fragrance seems like a simple task but there is a fine line between being effortlessly spritzed with cologne and doused in fumes, and the latter is never good. One of the things that makes a great summer fragrance is you want it to be versatile, something that can be worn both day and night. Below are my top summer fragrances.  

 

 

ARAMANI CODE COLONGIA by GIORGIO ARMANI 

 

This is the newest edition to my collection. I have always been a fan of Armani Code, it’s a classic, so when I heard they were coming out with a new fragrance I knew I had to check it out. Armani Code Colongia is reminiscent of Armani Code but lighter and with notes of orange blossom and lavender.

L’HOMME YSL 

 

L’Homme has continuously been a staple of the colognes I rotate through for years now. It is luscious and delicate, which makes it a perfect and one of the most versatile colognes. It contains notes of cedar, white ginger, basil flower, and white pepper.

VERSACE EAU FRAICHE

 

Versace Eau Fraiche is one of the lightest colognes I own. I tend to lean towards this one when I know I’m going to be out all day meeting up with friends and running errands. It is a more subtle sexy fragrance with notes of amber, white lemon, sage and cedar leaves.

MONT BLANC LEGEND SPIRIT 

 

Legend Spirit is another one of those classically versatile colognes. This is a cool and confident fragrance is light enough for those hot summer days and warm enough the nighttime. It is combined with notes of lavender, cardamom, grapefruit and bergamot.

MR. BURBERRY by BURBERRY 

 

Mr. Burberry is a great summer night fragrance, perfect for those rooftop parties, movies in the park and bonfires. This cologne has a warm and sensual feeling about it because of the amber and spicy cinnamon but what keeps it fresh is the mix of lavender.
