Seasonal scents are a great way for you to keep up with the current trends and can help you to smell great all the time. So, how do you choose the right fragrances of the season and not smell like you are trying too hard? First things first – unless you’re wearing a perfume that is old and has “turned”, it’s pretty likely that you get points for putting forth the effort, so congratulations. Since it’s getting close to fall, however, you might want to start thinking about what you’re going to wear with that great new cashmere sweater you just bought. Looks like it’s time to go fragrance shopping.

Cooler Days Can Handle Spicy Fragrances
The cool days of fall and cold winters can handle a fragrance that’s heavier and spicier for a number of reasons. Remember that cold dehydrates the skin, and fragrances depend on the moisture in your skin to have staying power. A heavier perfume often has more oils in it, which will give it more lasting time on your skin.
The other reason that your perfume can be heavier and more seasonal is because cold weather makes us think of warm, spicy and hearty scents. Just as a wholesome, home cooked meal will drive many men crazy, the right perfume will do the same. So, when it comes to seasonal scents, you have some flexibility. Think of cozy, warm and seductive when you’re choosing seasonal fragrances.
When The Weather Warms Up, Lighten Up The Scent
As the weather gets warmer, you might find that you need to choose a lighter scent. Lighter clothes, open toed shoes and no more jackets invoke a feeling of freedom and lightness. Since perfumes are heavier in high heat environments, consider choosing fragrances that are more floral and light. You may also want to go with something that is a little bit cleaner too.
This doesn’t mean that you have to give up your signature scent, but it might be a good time to find a lighter cousin of your favorite, which has been specially made for the summer months. During the warmer seasons, you might want to think about sparkle, like in champagne and fragrances that feel clean and fresh.
When you’re looking for seasonal perfumes and scents that meet all of your needs, you might think that you don’t want to break away from what you usually wear, but you should remember that the changing seasons offer you an opportunity to try new fragrances and change things up a little bit. If you’re worried about the expense, you should know that many fragrances which you would wear in the autumn can also be worn in the winter and the seasonal scents of spring and summer are often the same.
In the end, it’s important to change your perfumes like you would your clothes and choosing seasonal fragrances can help you to smell your very best all the time.
