  • What does a European summer smell like?

While this can be subjective, when we think about a European summer and the scents of summer, we are reminded of the fresh and light smells in the air around beach towns and villages. From the fresh fruit of the local markets to the hints of coconut from sun creams, light, fresh and fruity scents epitomise the Euro summer.


  • Do these fragrances have long-lasting staying power?

Designer scents particularly those that are labelled as ‘Eau de parfum’ have a strong lasting power. Those mentioned above are well-known for providing a long-lasting scent even on the hottest of summer days.


  • Is it possible to capture the scent of a specific location in a fragrance?

Perfume and fragrances certainly have the powerful ability to evoke emotions and memories. To capture the essence of a place in a bottle of perfume many designers will consider local ingredients such as the lemon trees of Sicily or the fresh fruit and figs of the Mediterranean coastline. Incorporating scents such as these into a bottle of fragrance is the perfect way to capture the scent of a specific location. You will notice some of the most famous summer perfumes give a nod to summer destinations such as Portofino and Sicily.


  • How can I choose the right fragrance for my summer adventures?

There's no doubt that fragrances have the ability to transport us to different places and evoke certain feelings and memories. That's why choosing the perfect scent for your summer adventures is important – it will not only make you smell amazing, but it will also enhance your overall experience. While we recommend a range of summer scents, after all the decision is yours. Taking into consideration summer notes such as citrus, vanilla, coconut and light florals is a good place to start when buying a summer fragrance.
