Fragrances to Add to Your Spring-Summer Scent Rotation

With the cool months firmly behind us here in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s time to pack away the coats, scarves and your wintery fragrances. Just like seasonally appropriate clothes and shoes, your fragrance selection will differ depending on the weather.

Spritzing on a rich, musky scent is perfect for the colder seasons, but doesn’t quite match the vibe when it’s warm and sunny outside. Instead, it’s time to incorporate scents that are fresh and airy to compliment the seasons of spring and summer. Here are some of our faves…

Recreation Beauty Sun-Kissed Eau De Parfum

Recreation Beauty founder Nedahl Stelio worked meticulously with her perfumers to nail the scent of summer and this was most definitely achieved with Sun-Kissed. Starting with a burst of citrus, notes of fig, pear and lemon myrtle, the fragrance then moves into a heart of jasmine and violet and is balanced with cedarwood and sandalwood. This fragrance is also vegan and cruelty-free, as well as chemical-free. Shop for $109 via Recreation.

Versace Dylan Turquoise Pour Femme

While you might not be able to holiday in Europe, you can be aromatically transported there with the newest fragrance from Versace. With the addition of mandarin, primofiore lemon, blackcurrant, guava, jasmine and freesia, the scent is fresh, bright and frankly, smells like a summer holiday. Shop via Myer for $94.
