Lean into the warm weather vibe with a fresh, fruity fragrance.
Picture this: It's prime summer, and instead of sweating out all the fluids in your pores in the middle of a concrete city, you're lounging by the Mediterranean, dipping your toes into the cool blue water of the sea. It smells fresh and clean and bright. And, of course, citrusy.
Even if you can't create that paradise for yourself this summer physically, you sure can try to evoke it in your everyday life with a citrusy fragrance. I'm talking a scent that'll make you smell the sea salt on your skin, the breeze in your hair, the sand between your toes. A cocktail with fresh oranges or lemons in hand, of course. You can get that feeling in a bottle!
So stash your earthy and woody and musky scents for the hottest months of the year, guys. This isn't the time for all that—instead, it's the time to romanticize the hell out of your summer, one citrusy spritz at a time.
