As we enjoy the summer months we tend to reach for an entirely different wardrobe of fragrance. Those heavy ambers and comforting gourmands are pushed to the back of the closet in favour of light colognes, sparkling citruses and solar florals. But a change in wardrobe for summer doesn’t have to be predictable, in fact, there are loads of fragrances out there that, whilst not being marketed for summer, suit the season perfectly. You don’t have to wear cologne, or citrus, or flowers, no, you can wear something a little bit more substantial and entirely unique.
For my Escentual column this week I have put together a list of subversive summer scents – fragrances that suit the summer season but in an unexpected way. They range from the good, clean fun of a scent inspired by homoerotic artwork to an essay in decaying flowers, with some couture and pancakes thrown in for good measure. So, if you’re looking to stand out this summer, click here to head on over to Escentual and read all about my subversive scent picks for the sunny season.
