In the summer, the rules for wearing perfume are a little different. For example, you may want to stick to lighter scents and reapply occasionally to keep the scent during the hottest part of the day. Not all fragrances are suited to spending a day at the beach, which is why we have compiled a list of 4 of our top favorites here. At Awesome Perfumes, we also have a variety of other name brand perfumes you can use all summer long.
Stick to Lighter Scents
Scent can be intensified by heat, which is why it’s a good idea to stick to citrus, floral, or fruity notes with your summer perfume. Some heavy floral blends that include patchouli, vanilla, or other sweet aromas can be very intense for a hot summer day and may not be the best choice. Generally, you should be able to use any perfume that reminds you of summer, whether that’s berries, flowers, or green grass.
How to Apply at the Beach
When it’s hot outside, the fragrance of your favorite perfume can quickly evaporate. Therefore, it may be necessary to reapply the scent throughout the day. A water-based formula may last longer than an alcohol-based perfume, but neither can last through endless hours of sunbathing. We recommend taking your favorite fragrance with you and reapply as needed.
