Scents of the Season – What Makes Summer Smell So Good

Scents of the Season – What Makes Summer Smell So Good

Thursday, May 16th, 2024

As we indulge in sips of Aperol Spritz, and our arms adorned with farmers’ tans, a familiar scent fills the air – the unmistakable essence of summer. But it’s hard to define the summer with just a single scent. Much like fashion trends ebb and flow with the seasons, our olfactory preferences also shift, embracing a diverse range of aromas to capture the essence of the season. It can be hard to know where to start when choosing your summer scent. That’s why we’re going to guide you through some of the iconic summer scents that perfectly capture the season’s energy.

Floral Bouquets

In the garden of summer scents, florals reign supreme, offering a large selection of aromas that captivate the senses. Delicate jasmine, ethereal lily-of-the-valley, and enchanting neroli take centre stage, weaving a tapestry of romance and elegance. Whether it’s strolling through a garden party or unwinding in a hammock beneath a canopy of blooms, floral fragrances possess the remarkable ability to whisk you away to your desired summer sanctuary of serenity and relaxation.

Eau de Veggies 

As the days lengthen, our yearning to reconnect with nature intensifies. Refreshing vegetable scents are swiftly rising in popularity, capturing the vitality of summer living. With notes of tarragon, basil, and black pepper, these fragrances evoke the ambiance of a leisurely dinner in the Sicilian countryside. 

Citrus Aromas 

Oceanic Scents 

For those seeking a refreshing escape from the summer heat, oceanic fragrances offer a welcome respite. Inspired by the cool waters of the ocean, these scents transport you to sandy shores and crystal-clear seas. With notes of sea salt, driftwood, and marine accords, oceanic fragrances capture the essence of summer holidays and seaside getaways. Fresh and calming, these scents are perfect for days spent lounging by the pool or reading on the beach.  

Sugary Scents 

For those yearning for the nostalgic scents of carefree, childhood summers, sugary fragrances serve as a potent reminder of those cherished memories. Infused with notes of bubblegum, cotton candy, and vanilla, these fragrances gently coax us to relish the sweeter moments in life and embark on more lighthearted adventures.
