The Sephora Glossy: Warm-Weather Scents

Read this post on The Sephora Glossy here.


Top tips to help you switch up your fragrance with the season.

“The best way to approach fragrance is to think of it as a wardrobe,” says Jared Kassof, Education Brand & Program Manager, Fragrance. “We should have different options to reflect who we are and how we’re feeling….just like you slip on tank tops and sandals, you should pull out a summertime scent.” Here, we get Kassof’s top tips on selecting your eau-so-perfect perfume for the season. RENEE TRILIVAS

What should you look for when picking a summer scent?
Fragrance is always a personal choice, but there are some general recommendations when looking for a summer scent. Go for something lighter since the heat and humidity increase your body temperature and intensify the scent, especially during the day.

Where can you find inspiration for a new perfume? 
Inspiration can come from anywhere! Ask yourself what you love about summer! If you love fresh fruit and juicy berries, go for that light, fruity floral. If you’re all about lounging by the pool, pick out a refreshing, marine fragrance.

Are there any particular notes we gravitate towards this time of year?
During summer, most of our clients lean towards fresh fragrances. These might have light, soft florals or bright, zesty citrus notes. They also include aquatic fragrances that evoke waterfalls and ocean breezes. Also, summer nights can be the perfect occasion for rich, romantic perfumes if you want a change.

What are your favorite fragrance formats?
Generally, products that provide a lighter application wear well in summer. Eau de toilette is probably the preferred concentration during this time of year since scents often become more intense and long-wearing with the weather. This is also a chance to wear your favorite scented body lotion on its own, or try small sizes and refillable atomizers for reapplying throughout the day.

What scents are you loving for summer?
The Issey Miyake Eau D’Issey Summer bottle is so cute, and I love how refreshing it is with light citrus notes. Bobbi Brown Beach is a light floral that keeps you coming back for more. I couldn’t stop smelling it! This is a great fragrance that lets you feel casual and sophisticated at the same time. Philosophy Sunshine Grace captures that happy feeling of skipping work or school to go lay out on the beach in the sun. Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue Escape to Panarea Pour Femme takes the original, iconic Light Blue and adds a little bit of sweetness. We all could use a fragrance that helps us escape.
