From sweet vanilla tones to zesty lemon notes, we round up the best summery scents to get you instantly into holiday mode.
One whiff of a [fragrance]( reminiscent of summer immediately switches our minds onto holiday mode, and once we've spritzed it on, we instantaneously feel like we’ve become the best version of ourselves. It’s a particular scent for all of us and from the aroma of freshly trimmed grass to the sweet smell of scooped ice cream, a deeply nostalgic experience of our happiest memories. Summer calls for a lighter take on perfume, and we want to embrace scents that embody the season of relaxation and radiance. Fragrances tend to evaporate in hotter weather due to the peak in temperature, so we tend to learn for smells that are easier to wear throughout the entirety of a day. Regardless of what your scent is, spritzing on perfume is an act that captures the sensation of happiness and uplifts our mood, which essentially is the most important part of the whole process. From zesty notes to floral tones, we round up our favourite [fragrances]( for the summer season.

Summer is a period where we enjoy taking time out to sight-see, even if it’s just within our own whereabouts, and Moresque’s Seta encapsulates the feeling of excitement with a warm, spicy aroma.
