Scented oils and fragrances have been used throughout human civilisation, and in modern times they are still an essential part of every woman’s beauty routine. Choosing the right fragrance can alter your mood, trigger memories and enhance your individuality, but you can’t wear the same scent all year round (no matter how much you love it). While your fashion and beauty routine is important and it changes from winter to summer, so should your choice of fragrance.
What is the Difference Between Summer and Winter Fragrances
Summer is a time for outdoor adventures, barbecues, cocktail parties and beach activities and your perfume needs to compliment your lifestyle. It’s also important to change perfumes depending on the season since fragrances are greatly influenced by temperature. Heat causes a fragrance to evaporate faster and project further, this is why summer and winter scents differ.
If a scent is too powerful it can become overwhelming in summer, so warmer months’ fragrances tend to be lighter and more refreshing, as opposed to winter fragrances which are rich and warm. This season it’s all about fragrances that are feminine and airy, like crisp citrus, green teas, and florals like jasmine, tuberose and frangipani.
