How to choose the best perfume according to the season of the year
Choosing the right perfume for you, that personal scent that will distinguish you from the others and make you feel special and unique is not a simple job. Except for your personal taste, of course, there are several other things to consider, as well when choosing a perfume.
Season is one of them. You probably know that temperature has a big impact on the way a perfume is perceived. Hot weather, for example, intensifies the fragrance notes, while cold weather makes it more difficult for them to evaporate. This makes it very important for you to make the right decision when choosing a perfume to wear in the different seasons.
If you want to truly impress people around you, you should carefully choose your scents according to the season you are wearing them in. Just like you won’t look your best if you wear your summer clothes in winter, for example, wearing a perfume that’s more appropriate for a hot summer’s day on Christmas will most probably be considered bad taste for those around you. If you have a separate personally favorite perfume for each season, you’ll show both class and a sense of detail that will surely not go unnoticed.
Here are our tips and suggestions for perfumes to wear in the different seasons:
Fragrance family: greens
Spring is all about freshness, innocence, happiness, and blooms. It is a time when temperatures rise and the degree of your good mood rises as well with them. Enhance this feeling with the right fragrance! The perfume notes that go best with spring are crisp, light, and fresh – like mint, basil, orange blossom, etc.

Fragrance family: floral
Summer is the season of ripe fruits, vacations, and hot weather. It is a time we all think about the sea and the long hot summer nights out. Choose fresher and cooler fragrances to get the best contrast with the hot weather. Summer perfumes should also be applied lightly as their scent is much stronger due to the high temperatures. Famous summer notes are bergamot, rose, jasmine, mimosa, orange blossoms, etc.

With fall come the cooler temperatures and we finally have some time to take a rest from all the summer’s hustle and bustle. It brings with it the tranquility we need to prepare for the colder weather and the great holidays that are ahead of us. Just like fall is the season that’s best for an unpretentious walk in the park where you can enjoy the falling leaves, it is wood notes that make the best fragrance companion both for men and for women in this season. The notes that go best with our fall mood are warm and musky, like patchouli, vetiver, sandalwood, amber, oakmoss, etc.

Fragrance family: oriental
Winter is that time of the year that you either love or hate. No matter which type you are, you should know that winter is perfumes’ most favorite season. Why? Because the cold temperatures give all those delicate and sophisticated notes the necessary time they need in order to fully express themselves. The lack of colors and activities, on the other hand, let fragrances get the place they deserve as your olfaction is not distracted by the outside smells and can be concentrated on the fabulous exotic oriental scents that are both strong and warm. The best winter perfume notes are vanilla, cinnamon, incense, amber, spices, etc.
