What is the difference between summer and winter perfumes?

“One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.”


Henry David Thoreau


 


Can we apply this quote on perfume world?


The choice of a fragrance depends on multiple factors such as the season of the year, personal taste or culture.  However, keeping the happy feeling about wearing perfume is a must.  In that sense, perfumes give us many options.  So,  winter fragrances don´t certainly need a touch of summer to bring us wellness and joy.


It is certain that the temperatures, the atmosphere and the growth of flowers or fruits change with the seasons.  Heat versus cold, humidity versus wind or snow, dahlia versus poinsettia, or watermelon versus orange.


Do our feelings and emotions change too? It is common thinking that summer is the season of joy, fun, relax, light and good feelings.  On the other hand, winter is usually linked to grey days, sadness or melancholy.  Can we revert this? Can perfumes help us change our emotions? We firmly believe so, that is why our goal is capturing sensations, sensations that can bring us happiness.


In winters, we usually wear so many layers of clothes –plus a coat, a scarf and gloves- that a powerful and lasting perfume is the best option.  Intense scents like vanilla, rose, sandalwood or chocolate can do the job.


In summers, the heat can make evaporate the fragrance quickly and also we feel hot and, sometimes, even sticky, so the best choice is always a fresh scent with ingredients like lemon, strawberries, coconut, jasmine or pineapple.


Besides, the smell of the perfume on our skin will be the X factor that will help us decide what is the best fragrance for us.  Therefore, scents can –and must- be different in summer and in winter because they have to adapt to the temperature, to our skin and to our emotions in order to make us feel good, confident and relaxed.  Have you already thought about the perfume you will wear in the next season?


Eurofragance keeps Capturing Sensations…
