We’ve been having a real heat wave the last few days (ok, today is an exception but it won’t last).
So, I wanted to share the perfume that work for me when it’s so hot outside I need a perfume to cool me off.
My latest cooling discovery is Jardin du Poete by Eau d’Italie and I decided not to fight it anymore. 🙂 It should arrive at Flores by the end of the month so I’ll be giving one bottle a loving home. and if the heat persists quite a lot of sprays.
There’s already been much talk of Guerlain’s Vetiver (the masculine one). My boyfriend hates it, but I love it.
Here is a review from Perfume Shrine where both masculine and feminine versions are discussed.
One of the things I keep forgetting I have and forgetting I like amid everything else is Eau de Cartier. It’s a little sparkling gem that refreshes like the gin and tonic many compare it to.
Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune – Well, I have only a little bit left of this wonderful grapefruit scent and I really need a bottle of it but it doesn’t seem to be available here (or maybe I’m not looking right).
This seems to be a hit and miss as grapefruit is such a note.
Charmes et Feuilles by The Different Company has become a staple for me from spring all through summer. What better to cool you off but some mint?
And the last one, Mona di Orio Lux, the one that feels best in the languid heat of the evening as it doesn’t put a freshness into your step but instead make you enjoy yourself languidly in the evening.
Please, if you have some ideas of your own, I can always use more diversity and coolness in my perfume collection. 🙂
Pic is mine and that would work great in the way of cooling as well. 🙂
