Summer is here and it’s time to change up your fragrance! Try a lighter, fresher scent for summer. If you are determined to stick with your “signature” scent, check out a lighter version — many fragrances have a “lite” sister. Or, if you wear a perfume, you can opt to try wear an eau de toilette — a slightly less potent variety of the perfume.
Some new and notable scents for summer are on the market. And, with the wide variety of fragrances, there is one for every occasion!
1. At the Beach — Badgley Mischka Couture Parfum Elixir
Just slightly bigger than a tube of lipgloss, the Badgley Mischka Couture Parfum Elixir won’t interfere with your sunscreeen and can be easily taken anywhere — just toss it in your beach bag or purse for a day in the sun. No need to go back home for touch-ups, after a quick pump, you’ll be ready to take on the night. Badgley Mischka Couture is available at fine department stores nationwide. $48.
