You can never underestimate the power of fragrance, it’s sweet, woody or zesty notes can transport any individual to a particular memory and boost any mood. The best fragrances linger on the skin and turns heads as you walk down the street. Whilst fragrances are trans-seasonal, there is something about a fragrance in the summer that makes an impact. Whether it’s inspired by the sweet yet sultry setting on the Mediterranean or boasting the zesty notes of citrus, summer fragrances add a little extra energy and vibrancy during the warmer months. And right now, the high street is delivering when it comes to fragrance. It used to be that the only decent scents were expensive but recently, that’s all changed. With the likes of Zara and & Other Stories offering up incredible fragrances, I often turn to the high street for perfume.
As the fragrance wardrobe is ever-changing, depending on mood, investing in lust-worthy expensive fragrances can seem quite daunting. Hence our edit of sultry, seductive and fresh scents that sustains it quality but are inexpensive and worth the investment. “Pretty florals always prove to be extremely popular especially with the sparkling notes of orange blossom, tuberose, jasmine and rose” says sustainable perfumer, Amy Christiansen, founder of Sana Jardin, exploring the notes that individuals reach for over the summer months. “If I had to choose notes which best evoke the feelings of summer, I would choose lemon, jasmine, ylang ylang and orange blossom, they will transport anyone to an exotic location”.
