With the summer season, what better way to transition your scent wardrobe than with a seasonal fragrance that perfectly pairs with the balmy summer air?
Fresh, fruity and citrus notes can be both uplifting & energising in nature – making them the perfect choice for lifting your mood and complimenting the heat. Much like food and wine pairings, certain fragrances suit certain surroundings and lifestyles more than others. Take your style, for example: The summer season lends itself well to lighter, more breathable fabrics like linen, cotton & silk. Spritzing these lighter fabrics with heavier “evening” or “wintery” scents can seem counter intuitive. Instead, opting for a lighter fragrance will not only match your look but also your change in lifestyle, mood and the varying aromas that the summer season brings us.
We’ve rounded up a collection of our favourite fresh, fruity & citrus fragrances for men, that can be liberally spritzed all day long.
NEROLI SAUVAGE BY CREED
Néroli Sauvage celebrates the 17th century Duchess of Nerola (a small city near Rome), whose castle and gardens were famous for jubilant summer parties. Taking its inspiration from the French word for "wild," this invigorating blend captures the luxuriant atmosphere of the Duchess' gatherings during which guests would crush neroli flowers against their skin to release the bittersweet yet invigorating floral essence. Anchored by the warmth of ambergris and spiked with verbena, Néroli Sauvage is appropriate for men and women who appreciate a crisp citrus fragrance with smooth depth.
