We all know that on summertime we want to smell nicer than on any other season. Especially on those hot summer days when the temperature hits over 40 degrees. In my opinion, perfumes and body sprays are literally the best ways to keep yourself fresh. Nobody wants to be all sweaty on a hot summer day so body sprays are a must have. Now, I know that some spray can be really pricey, especially those from popular, well-known companies, such as Chanel, Dior and so on. However, you must not worry, as there are cheap body sprays that work just as well. Take Avon for example. It is definitely not a top quality company but it does its work. However, when it comes to body sprays, trust me, any spray will do its job. The difference between a high quality and a low quality body spray is that, just like perfumes, the high quality ones last longer. You will not need to re-apply a high quality body spray every two hours, as it will last for over 8 hours. Now, on most high quality body sprays and perfumes it says that they last for 24 hours but I think that is a little exaggerated.

When it comes to choosing a perfume, or a body spray, it really depends on your tastes. It depends on your looks, on your attitude. You can’t wear a sweet scented perfume if you are an edgy person, if you like extreme sports and so on. You definitely must find something that completes your look and your attitude. If, as I said, you are an edgy person, the best option for you is a bitter scented perfume. You want people to know you when they smell you. You want to remind them of something when they smell your scent. That something is your attitude, it is what you like, what you don’t and so on. Personally, when I smell a bitter scented perfume on summertime, I’m being reminded of summer clubbing, crazy night out. Well, it also depends on the other person’s interpretation, of course.
Now, summer has this power to change you attitude. Summer and the stores in the mall which, let’s face it, all sell cute clothes, usually dresses and skirts. This summer, combos of high-waisted shorts and skirts and crop tops were really in trend. In my opinion, summer is all about being cute, wavy and all that stuff. I think that if summer was a person, it would be a girl with long brown curly hair, wearing a high-waisted skirt with a flower pink-ish print and a white lace crop top, paired with a pair of white sneakers or sandals. That and a flower headpiece. Now, this requires a cute, girly attitude and a sweet scented perfume, and body spray, would complete the look.
However, attitude and looks are not the only things that can guide you upon choosing a perfume for summer. Your decision can be also influenced by other things you like. For example, flowers. If you like flowers, you can definitely go for a flower scented perfume, such as rose, lily and so on. You know, flowers can have both a bitter and a sweet scent so you can definitely get a flower scented perfume which fits your attitude and looks completely. Then again, maybe you are more into traveling. You can definitely look for a perfume whose scent reminds you of your favorite place. If your favorite place is the seaside, you can try a perfume with a sea-themed scent. On the other hand, if you prefer mountains, don’t worry, I am sure you can find a perfume which reminds you of fresh air, leaves, forest and so on. There are literally millions of perfume scents and they all differ. It would probably take you years to try all the perfumes from Sephora, trust me. You know, scents differ so much from one another, but they are also very similar. Their “base scent” is the same. It is either sweet or bitter, right? From that on, the scents divide into a million ways. Did you know that there is a perfume which actually smells like bacon? Did I get your attention now, food junkies? Well, yes, there is a bacon scented perfume. This is not even the worst. There is a perfume scent for literally everything. Now, my favorite scent is definitely the smell of new books. I’m a book enthusiast, yes, guilty! However, book scents are not really for summer so I guess I will go for something sweet as well. If you have a skin condition it is best to choose one of these deodorants for sensitive skin, so you don’t have to worry about rash or red areas.
Now, don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with wearing your favorite scent on summer, just like on any other season. At the end of the day, every season is special. Autumn for its leaves, winter for the snow, spring for the awakening and summer.. well, it’s summer! So why not use your favorite scent in the summer?
You know, there are people for whom summer is very special, especially for those still in school, because summer is the only time in the year when their school-break is longer than 2 weeks. Imagine you had a break from work for 3 months. I bet it would be special for you too.
All in all, I advise you to choose a perfume, not only for summer but for any season, that you like, one that represents you somehow. Remember that you define the scent, people will not remember the scent, they will remember the person whose scent mirrored his personality. Don’t let a scent define you. It is your story. It is your mark on the world. You are not just a scent traveling from one place to another, you are a person who wears a scent that completes him. Your scent is your stamp, be confident with it. Nothing is more powerful than confidence. Also, don’t forget that your perfume says a lot about you, but only those who are willing to get to know you, will understand.
