Update Your Signature Scent With One Of These Summer Perfumes

Perfume is a special item for everybody. A quick spritz can express an entire mood for the wearer, in the same way an outfit can. People often choose one signature scent and stick to it, making that fragrance synonymous with the person, and recognizable even before they enter the room. But not all perfumes are suited to every season. In the fall, you'll want something smoky and musty that warms you up and creates a cozy atmosphere, but that same scent would be too heavy for summer. As the days get brighter and warmer, a change is in order. 

Selecting a perfume for summer is no difficult task, at least, not on paper. But when you hit the stores there are thousands of bottles to choose from and you can quickly become overwhelmed. To better suit the season, you want something light and fresh for day time, and a second, more sensual option for evening ensembles. 

Spray on sea salt and fresh green leaves during the day to instantly transport yourself to the beach, and pair your perfume with a patterned romper to complete the summer vibe. To compliment your sun-kissed skin, opt for a more elaborate floral and fruit fragrance to turn heads as you walk by, or choose fresh citrus notes to invigorate your look. As the night falls, think fun and flirty to go with a floaty, ruffled dress – there's nothing like a hint of fig to transport you to the Mediterranean on warm nights.
