I am a firm believer that a scent can sum up a season. During winter I love notes of spice and in Autumn I crave subtle, sophisticated fragrances. Now we are in June (say what!) and summertime is upon us, meaning a new fragrance. Last year I bought Escada Sexy Graffiti at the airport on a whim and even now when I spray the perfume I'm filled with memories of lush, tropical beaches and the generous warmth of the Caribbean. And that's why I put a lot thought into my spring/summer fragrance, because for me it's as much about the memories it evokes as it is about the actual smell. Just as a summer soundtrack encompasses nostalgia, for me, a scent reacts in the same way. In other words, Harajuku Lovers will remind me of a secluded, Greek beach just as much as Katy Perry's song 'California Girls' will.
That was last summer though and now we're amongst this summer (although it really doesn't feel like summer with the sight of a downpour outside my window right now). New summer, new summer scent. Enter, well Escada again, but chapter two of my summer fling with Escada.
The brand's limited edition scent Cherry in the Air is a delectable concoction of fruity and sweet notes, perfect for summer and perfect for a summer of new memories and adventures. Whether it's far flung or a staycation, summer is a time of joy and experience. It's time to meet a new evoker of nostalgia.
So my question to you readers is what fragrance will be the scent of your summer?
