New Escentual Post: The Candy Perfume Boy’s Summer Scent Edit

The Candy Perfume Boy’s Summer Scent Edit

It may not look like summer outside but the perfume industry is certainly preparing for a long hot season of scented sunshine. When summer rolls around one takes the opportunity to dust the cobwebs off of those lighter, brighter and more citrus-centric fragrances that will cut through the unrelenting heat and will smell thoroughly alive under the gaze of the hot summer sun.

In preparation for summer my Escentual column this week takes a tour of some great summer fragrances. It covers some of my go-to summer scents (my ‘summer staples’, if you will) such as Mugler Cologne as well as some brand new perfumes launched for summer 2014. Click here to head on over to Escentual and read my ‘Summer Scent Edit’ and don’t forget to let me know what your summer staples are!
