Summer Breeze, Perfumes and Fragrances

Source: beautypress.com

There’s nothing that leaves a lasting impression the way a powerful scent does. Everyone wants to be remembered for all the right reasons and a captivating fragrance can do just that. Men and women equally appreciate the value of smelling irresistible. Each individual has their favorite notes they prefer whether it’s a musky or sweet scent that draws them. As much as we may have our favorites, it’s a great idea to switch up your fragrances at the start of a new season.

There are many fragrance aficionados who describe their spritz of perfume or cologne as the final touch to their outfit. Which, otherwise, without it they would feel naked or as if they weren’t fully dressed. When deciding on what fragrance to choose for what season, think of fragrance as the fabric you would wear.

In the summer, we wear airy, light fabrics to allow the breeze to flow easily in the heat. Just like your clothes, a fragrance to match will have light notes, smell clean and fresh- not heavy and overwhelming. In the winter we bundle up with scarves and jackets, we sip apple cider and enjoy gingerbread cookies during the holidays. The colder months call for a heavier fragrance, one with musky, wooden and amber undertones. A fragrance that warms you up, figuratively speaking.

The Anatomy of a Fragrance:

Creating a perfume can be easily compared to composing music. Perfumes contain notes that linger to last and move you to feel something much like music.

Top Notes: Commonly referred to as the head fragrance of a perfume. These are the scents you experience first when trying a scent. They tend to be the lighter scent like of citrus or fruit.

Middle Notes: Commonly referred to as the heart of a perfume. The rich, heavy scents of a perfume are situated here. These are the scents that are most prominent.

Bottom Notes: These are the scents that will linger the most on the skin. The bottom notes are meant to be noticed some time after applying the fragrance. These will ensure everyone smells your scent.
