Snag Martha Stewart’s Best Scents for Summer


While we have signature scents that we can’t live without, many forget that (just like your wardrobe) perfumes are meant to change with the seasons. The latest issue of Martha Stewart Living touches on transitional scents as our favorite fragrances always receive a citrus, marine, fruity, or green twist to their signature notes during this time of year.

Sugary sweet and spicy scents have the staying power to last throughout a blustery day or blizzard, but the heavy aromas can weigh you down and even attract bugs during the warmer months. Plus citrus notes can repel any ankle-biting mosquitos that may show up to your summer soiree uninvited.

The glossy recommends Ralph Lauren’s Romance Summer Blossom during office hours with Dior’s J’adore Voile de Parfum for summer nights, and Coach’s Signature Summer Legacy for your weekends escapades. We’d also like to add Givenchy’s Dahlia Noir L’Eau provide a sweet escape from your 9-to-5, while Issey Miyake’s L’Eau de Issey is a sultry scent for date night and Marc Jacobs’ Daisy Eau so Fresh will put a pep in your step on weekends. Happy spritzing!
