Just as in the summer we change our wardrobe for light sundresses, putting away woolen sweaters, we need to take care of perfume sets. It is important that the fragrant “outfit” fits you well in the heat, does not cause a headache and does not irritate others.
What fragrances to choose in summer
In summer, under the influence of heat, our sense of smell becomes more sensitive, and we perceive all smells more sharply. Therefore, those compositions that went with a bang in the winter, in the warm season, literally begin to choke and cause a headache.
In summer, it is better to abandon warm fragrances and switch to light compositions. In the heat, “perfumery outfits” of citrus, aquatic, and floral notes are clearly visible. Best of all, the image is beaten with floral chords of jasmine, peony, magnolia, freesia.
Do not forget about the most summer theme – berries, fruits (passion fruit, watermelon) and freshly cut grass. So, take all the flavors with berry smoothies, cocktails, perfumes in the “only after the rain” style on a pencil.
Woody notes are also consonant with summer outfits, they can even head the fragrances, but it is better to act in tandem with floral bouquets. These perfumes imitate the smell of awakened nature.
But aromas with obvious confectionery notes, patchouli, oriental spices are best avoided, they are too warm and will suffocate in their arms.
How to tailor a winter fragrance for summer
If you can’t live without your favorite winter fragrance, then look for its relatives among the summer series. Luxury brands often make lighter versions of warm fragrances especially for hot seasons. They release limited editions marked – l’eau, fresh, cologne.
How to make fragrance last longer
All perfumes evaporate rather quickly in the summer, because the skin dries faster in the heat, and quenches thirst, literally, drinking aromatic oils from perfume. The biggest mistake you can make in this case is to pour toilet water from head to toe. You will smell from a kilometer away at first, which will scare others around, but this veil will quickly disappear.
To delay the perfume composition, it is better to do this: take a shower, apply a moisturizer (unscented or perfume-matched) to the body, and then perfume. Then the skin will restore its reserves due to the cream, not the perfume, and it will be with you all day.
What to do for those who can not wear perfume in the heat
There is such a state when even the lightest perfume causes a headache in the heat. For those who are familiar with these sensations, but feel naked without fragrance, here are a few options: use a perfume body cream, use perfume oil, sprinkle your hair with a special aromatic haze (there is no alcohol, so it will not harm the strands).
Another option is to still apply perfume, but not on the neck or bends of the elbows, but under the knees. You will not feel it, and the aromatic plume will follow you.
