The summer is the time when space is given to fresh, light and inebriating notes; between citrus and floral notes, but also intense, accomplices musky, woody and vanilla accords.
Summer fragrances are light, fresh, lively and evoke feelings of joy, vitality and serenity. They are ideal to be worn during sunny days and summer evenings, when you want to feel a light breeze and a feeling of freshness on the skin.
They usually have bright and sparkling notes, inspired by elements such as citrus, fruit or delicate flowers. Among the most common ingredients used in summer fragrances are lemon, bergamot, orange, mandarin, peach, coconut, and flowers such as jasmine.
The choice is varied, both in terms of smell and with regard to the various price ranges. We have collected for you the best fragrances on the market for summer 2023.
