Let’s face it, the best part of summer can also be the worst. On one hand, the sun’s heat can be therapeutic and calming. On the other hand, it can make you feel, well, kind of like a wilted flower—not so fresh.
As I walked back to the office after lunch, perspiring (okay, sweating) in the midday heat, it got me thinking about some good, get-fresh fragrance trends to help you smell pretty all summer long:
Rose fragrance has really been popping up as a hot trend for spring and summer. Recently featured in the June issue of InStyle Magazine, our Rosewood Citron is a fresh take on the romantic classic. The citrus notes make it fresh and uplifting, but there’s also a soulful touch of warm rosewood and beautiful modern rose notes. It’s a lovely way to start your summer day.
If you prefer a more traditionally-floral scent, our Kimono Rose delivers a bouquet of rose along with peony and jasmine. But with the notes of sweet clementine, black currant and vanilla, you still get a little intrigue and uniqueness.
Another big trend in summertime fresh is the whole on-the-go concept. We love that we’re seeing our rollerball fragrances featured in a lot of blogs lately. What’s great about the rollerball fragrances is that you can carry them with you for fast touch-ups. Just throw them in your bag and go! They’re also a fun way to try new fragrances without a big commitment—or big price tag. In fact, many of our fragrances are now available in a rollerball, so if there’s one you’ve been curious to try, I highly recommend this option.
Why wear a scent that just makes you smell good when you can wear one that makes you feel good too? For me, the right fragrance is like everyday aromatherapy! Our Jade Matcha was recently featured in Dr. Oz’s new magazine, The Good Life, for its calming lemongrass notes. Wearing it can make you feel not only pretty, but peaceful too.
Speaking of the feel-goodness of lemongrass, I’m also really excited about our newest fragrance, Tupelo Lemongrass that’s launching. This is a fragrance that tested really well with our panel. Not only is it a perfect pick-me-up, it gives you a sunny, easy-going, laid-back feel for those barefoot summer days.

Kimono Rose is my absolute favorite. It feels so refreshing and light for summer. I'll have to try the rollerball for those humid nights out! - Stephanie, Candles Off Main | BonBougie.com
