Did you know that there are fragrances suitable for every season? Summer feminine perfumes are characterized by freshness, lightness, floral and fruity scents. Intoxicating and at the same time enveloping, these scents bring to mind the idea of travel, catapulting us to golden beaches and coasts, with all the typical smells of the Mediterranean scrub.
There are many news regarding women’s perfumery on Idea Beauty: let’s find out together how to choose the right ones to never go unnoticed, even during the hottest months of the year.
Women’s perfumes for summer: which ones to choose
First of all, put aside all those gourmand fragrances, rich and enveloping, with intense hints of chocolate, vanilla, cotton candy and caramel, suitable for the winter season. In summer it is time to opt for fresh notes, which help us face the sultry days with the right determination and give the sense of smell energizing, lively and sparkling.
Floral fragrances are among the most popular of all, especially by women, which is why every maison offers at least one perfume inspired by the world of flowers. Whether they are romantic, fresh, intense or delicate, perfumes of this type know how to be remembered without being too intrusive, perfect to be worn by enthusiastic and carefree women.
The queen of the flower world is undoubtedly the rose. Always linked to the planet Venus, she symbolizes and represents the most romantic and passionate femininity. The scents with hints of rose are a concentrate of sensuality, elegance and refinement. Those who choose peony, on the other hand, have a much more complex and decisive femininity. Peony flowers symbolize immortality and luck in the Eastern tradition, while in the Western one it changes its meaning depending on the color: the white ones are a symbol of purity, the red ones evoke passion.
Freesia is less popular, but much appreciated by those with a reserved and sensitive soul. For this reason, it is considered the flower of the unknown and of mystery, seductive and intriguing. On the other hand, jasmine is said to be the favorite flower of dreamers. Its scent is able to fight states of anxiety, stress and depression. The name derives from Yasmin, which in Persian means “gift of God”, precisely because of its very intense smell: it is by far the most used flower in perfumery, present in 83% of women’s fragrances.
Acqua di Parma – Noble Peony
Let’s start with a cologne that is light and delicate like a caress, but at the same time vital and exuberant. Peony, with its vibrant and sensual elegance, expresses a perfect symbiosis between opposite poles. Flower of the gods and protagonist of ancient myths, its name derives from Peone, physician of Olympus who cured Zeus with the root of this flower. The fragrance opens with refreshing and slightly fruity notes of Black Pepper and Raspberry. The Peony then joins the Geranium, the Turkish Rose and the freshness of Freesia, while the base is made up of accents of Amber, Patchouli and Musk.
Dolce & Gabbana – Light Blue Forever Pour Femme
Light Blue is a fragrance from the Floral Fruity group for women, with main accords of citrus and white flowers. An Eau de Parfum that captures the essence of eternal love, against the backdrop of the idyllic island of Capri. Top notes are lemon, blood orange and green apple; middle notes are orange blossom and white flowers; base notes are white musk, cedar wood and cashmeran.
Giorgio Armani – Water of Joy
Acqua di Gioia is a pure, transparent and essential fragrance, inspired by the clarity of water. The fragrance opens with sour and sparkling lemon and fresh mint, and then disappears in the transparent heart notes of aquatic jasmine. All the softness of Cedarwood, Ladano and Cane Sugar emerges from the base.
Notes of Jasmine, Tuberose and climbing Rangoon, enhanced by Neroli, characterize the Gucci Bloom floral fragrance. Imagined as a garden in bloom, it was born to exactly reflect her name. From the bottom emerge Solar Notes, Musk, Sandalwood, Benzoin, Iris and Woody Notes: ideal for sophisticated, inclusive and authentic women.
Hermès – Un Jardin sur le Nil
Un Jardin sur le Nil is an impressionist stroll through the Nile garden islands in Aswan. Green Mango, Lotus, Incense, Calamus and Sycamore Wood characterize the heart of this fragrance. The bottle is illuminated by the green and ocher reflections of the banks of the River Nile. Inside there is a rather unusual fragrance: with green and vegetable scents, of water and sand, it is fresh and sparkling on the skin, suitable to be worn by both sexes.
