Video: The Smell of Vacation: The Best Fragrances for Summer 2017
The long-awaited summer slowly comes into its own. Of course, this is the brightest season of the year, when every girl seeks to create a particularly spectacular image.
Hot beaches, the sea, long walks, bright greenery - all this requires a special mood, for which an appropriate aroma is absolutely necessary.
What perfume is ideal for summer, our author Anna Sizonenko will tell.
Ambergris, spices, musk and woody notes in perfumes undoubtedly create a seductive image, warm their wearer and envelop them in a veil of mystery, but it is better to postpone these scents until winter, as hot weather significantly increases their volume.
Wearing a sweet and heavy oriental perfume in a warm season is like coming to the beach in a chic mink coat: hot and out of place. Something that captivates with luxury in cold weather may seem unbearably stifling in summer, both to you and to those around you.
For the heat, fresh and weightless compositions are much better suited, which, believe me, can be no less bright and beautiful.

A rich and thick perfume in the summer is appropriate to apply only in the evening.
1. Florabellio Diptyque
An incredible and memorable scent that takes you to exotic countries. This perfume is very fresh and light, but at the same time it has an outstanding and intriguing composition.
Top notes: aquatic notes, sea salt and fennel.
Heart notes: apple blossom and osmanthus.
Base notes: roasted coffee and sesame seeds.
The scent of a romantic adventure by the sea. Oceanic breeze, juicy fruit washed with dew, and invigorating notes of morning coffee brought to bed by a seductive stranger yesterday - you will hear all this when you breathe in the aroma of Florabellio. Do not be intimidated by its complex opening in the top notes, let it "sit" better on your skin, and then you will appreciate all its piercing beauty.
2. Un Jardin Sur Le Toit
Impeccable taste - all couturiers and perfumers strive for this definition. This is an unshakable reputation in the fashion world that is very difficult to earn. Jean-Claude Ellena, now the leading perfumer of the Hermes fashion house, is universally recognized as the owner of a flawless nose … sorry, taste. Several years ago, he created the Jardin perfume collection ("Garden" - translated from French), which includes four fresh summer scents that personify the exotic gardens of the world.
It is worth paying special attention to the sunniest, in my opinion, specimen of the collection - Un Jardin Sur Le Toit ("Roof Garden").
The composition of the fragrance includes notes of herb, red apple, pear, rose, magnolia and rosemary.
Ellena himself called this perfume "a fun garden of pleasure that makes us love life." Un Jardin Sur Le Toit is a very atmospheric fragrance. You will love its refreshing relaxation, reminiscent of cool apple lemonade on a sultry afternoon. A light herbal bitterness gives the perfume composition completeness, and floral notes - secular sophistication, which is so appreciated by admirers of the house of Hermes.
The hotter the weather, the brighter the rose accord sounds.

3. Earl Gray & Cucumber
Nothing sounds so beautiful in summer as tea notes … and if you are already tired of the timeless classic Green Tea by Elizabeth Arden, but you still want a tea, I advise you to pay attention to Earl Gray & Cucumber by Jo Malone.
Top notes: jasmine, bergamot, red apple and aquatic notes.
Heart notes: angelica and cucumber.
Base notes: musk, Virginia cedar, beeswax and vanilla.
This is the scent of cheerfulness and coolness. If the above perfumes carried us to the shores and gardens on the roofs, then this one will give associations with a charming cottage away from the bustle of the city.
The freshness of a walk in a shady garden, a lulling swing of a hammock under the branches of jasmine, iced tea with bergamot, seasoned with a spoonful of honey … wake me up with a kiss …

To whom Malon's prices for tea and other colonial goods seem shameless, I advise you to pay attention to the Demeter tea collection. In any corner of the brand you will be offered green, Earl Gray, spicy and two types of white teas, which can be mixed well and like a hooligan. Although these fragrances are inferior in durability to Jo Malone, the tea notes in them sound great.
5. Eau de Campagne
Being in the asphalt jungle, you really want to feel the melody of forest smells … You can feel the special magic of the mysterious forest with Sisley's Eau de Campagne.
The composition of the fragrance features notes: bergamot, plum, patchouli, musk, galbanum, basil, jasmine, oakmoss, vetiver, lily of the valley, tomato leaf, geranium and lemon.
This is the green freshness of a summer forest, where you can get lost in the intoxicating magic of the aromas of flowers and herbs. You will not get tired of listening to this song and taking it apart.
6. Mojave Ghost
Continuing our fragrant journey through hot places, one cannot but visit the sultry deserts … This is where the sun rules the ball: you feel it as an eternal companion on a walk along the hot dunes, you even see the edge of its shadow … you will not find anyone but scorching rays and a light scent … This is exactly the feeling that Mojave Ghost by Byredo gives.
Top notes: ambrette and sapodilla.
Heart notes: violet, sandalwood and magnolia.
Base notes: ambergris and white cedar.
The scent is dry and moist at the same time, rich and weightless. Many people note that the volume of its sound changes during the day, having died down at noon, it can envelop you again in the evening. The feeling of mysticism is guaranteed.

Perfume is always emotions. The right summer scent will associate with the sunny memories of your vacation. Thanks to this, even on dark winter evenings, you can return to summer.
