    The best summer fragrances for men

    Men love a fragrance just as much as the women, so what are the best summer fragrances for men?

    It’s not surprising why many women prefer to wear a male fragrance.

    There is such a great range in gorgeous male scents available and popular summer scents are full of fresh, aquatic and citrus vibes.

    The males take just as much care in their appearance as women and some of the fragrance notes in male products are real head turners.

     

    The best summer fragrances for men

    Travelling light

    Men prefer to travel light when going on their holidays. Much more than the women. We feel the need to take most of the wardrobe and every pair of shoes we own, to match our evening outfits.

    A couple of pairs of shorts, a few tops and one pair of shoes seems to suit the men perfectly. Having a partner who travels light certainly has it’s advantages. More space in the suitcase for us ladies to fill those gaps with even more outfits and shoes!

    We do leave a small space for their favourite fragrance though and it’s usually one that the woman has chosen!

    Well, if we are spending a 2-week holiday together it’s important to make sure that our fellas have the best smelling fragrance to wear.

    Men are more likely to buy a fragrance last minute at the Duty Free. This inevitably leads to them purchasing a female one for their partner too. There’s no escape lads!

    The best summer fragrances for men

    When we think of fragrance notes for men for summer wear, similar to females scents, we think of delicate aquatic notes.

    A touch of citrus such as oranges, lemons or lime.

    The same rule applies so nothing too heavy for the hot weather. Anything that reminds us of sandy beaches, cocktails and crashing waves are perfect.

    Let’s take a look at some of the best summer fragrances for men.

    Dior Savage has become very popular over the last few years and is another fragrance that suits most seasons.

    4. Kenzo- Pour Homme

    5. Dolce & Gabbana- Light Blue

    If you love strong fruit flavours then D&C Light Blue is a great choice this summer. There’s a wonderful scent on holidays with the fragrance notes as we smell grapefruit, Sicilian mandarin, rosemary, rosewood and musk.

    Any fragrance that contains musk has my vote. It’s such a light and delicate scent that really works well for summer as it’s not too powerful or heavy.

     

    It has a sharpness to it that works so well during the hot months. If you’re buying this fragrance for your holidays, it’s worth noting that it can wear off fairly quickly so may not be suitable for a lasting scent during the evening.

    Perfect for a spritz by the pool or dipping in and out of the sea.

    6. Giorgio Armani-Aqua Di Gio

    The name alone screams out class and coolness.

    If you’re looking for a scent that has a bit more longevity, then Giorgio Armani-Aqua Di Gio is the perfect match.

    Full of summer notes such as lime, neroli, jasmine, peach and rose, this fragrance will certainty fit the bill. With base notes of ambergris, cedar and oak moss, this gives the scent a longer lasting aroma and both middle and base notes keep the scent long-lasting.

    The female version of this fragrance is refreshing and Davidoff’s Cool Water is no exception. Beautiful top notes of lavender, peppermint, rosemary and orange blossom make this scent one of the favourites for men.

    We do think of summer and holidays with the title alone and with a reasonable price, it’s a popular fragrance to wear all year round.

    This fragrance is unisex so it makes the perfect scent to take away for a holiday, when both you and your partner can use it.

    A refreshing and typical summer scent with its mixture of cedarwood, guava and mojito, ( a cocktail of flavours consisting of lime or lemon juice, mint and white rum).

    Citrus scents are hugely popular during the summer and as soon as you open this fragrance, there is an instant whiff of citrus, followed by the coconut.

    The best summer fragrances for women

    Summer is finally here so if you’re looking for a fragrance, what are the best summer fragrances for women?

    The hot season, whether its’s here in the UK or abroad, requires a more subtle fragrance on the skin.

     

    The best summer fragrances for women

     

    Any scent that is too strong or heavy in fragrance notes won’t sit nicely on the skin and will most certainly be off-putting for you as well as those around you.

    The best summer fragrances for women

     

    All the above fragrance notes speak ‘summer’ and ‘delicate scents’.

    During the heat, we wear lighter clothing so it makes sense to wear a lighter fragrance.

    There are lots of options to wearing a lighter scent when it comes to perfumes and fragrances.

     

    Body sprays for a lighter option

    Body sprays as we have previously discussed work very well when it’s hot. They instantly cool the skin down as well with their delicate mist.

    I have reached for my FM no.20 body mist over the past few weeks when we have seen temperatures read as high as 32 degrees.

    It felt far too hot to be wearing a perfume, especially as our own brand contain 20% pure perfume oil for a longer lasting fragrance.

    EDT is a great option too as these will give off just as good a fragrance but without so much longevity.

    Some women don’t feel fully dressed without a spritz of their favourite scent so having other options is of great benefit.

    If you’re a lover of fragrances, then you will already know just how many there are to choose from.

    It can be very overwhelming, especially if you usually purchase your favourite bottle from the perfume department stores.

    An overlay of scent whilst you try on several brands can give headaches and put you off from buying any.

    We like to have the option to try before we buy, especially if we’re looking for something new and different to our usual smell.

     

    Samples are available to try

    You can try samples before you make a purchase at FM World. Check out our shop here.

    The perfect scents to choose are those that have base notes of the summer scents.

    You don’t want to choose one that smells like summer with its first spray and then has heavy notes as the day goes on.

    By choosing perfumes and scents that have delicate base notes allows for that scent to stay subtle and soft throughout the day without feeling overpowering for you or anyone who walks past.

     

    Let’s take a look at some of the popular fragrance scents that are suitable for the hotter weather.

    This bottle oozes a freshness of lemons, citrus vibes and fruit to give a wonderful scent of nature and beauty.

    Created in 2018, it’s perhaps one of those perfumes that has gone unnoticed in the past and there may be many women who have yet to try it.

    Once the initial top notes have settled down, you are left with a familiar scent of the male version Cool Water. I was very much a fan of the male scent as it wasn’t heavy and had a masculine approach, whilst keeping its scent delicate and clean.
