Five Summer Fragrances and Scents to Match Your Every Mood

Whether you’re partial to floral scents or spiced blends, you too can feel fresh and breezy even in the summer heat with these fragrances.

The heat is on! With temperatures of 35 to 36 degrees Celsius in the past few weeks—forecasted to stay this way in the days to come—summer is definitely not canceled. This warm weather, paired with cabin fever, is definitely not a good combo. Especially since most of us have been constrained to working, studying, or simply living in the comfort of our own homes because of current restrictions.

And that is why using fragrances and scents to uplift one’s mood is of the essence. Pun intended.

Out of the 5 senses, your sense of smell is the strongest. In fact, scents have the ability to influence brain activity. Even more so, since our olfactory response is directly linked to the emotional responses of our brain. This is why we associate certain memories with a particular smell—the Proust effect, so to speak.

Aside from inducing heartwarming feelings from the past, scents can also do amazing things for the mind and the body, especially in this scorching heat. Here are some new fragrances (which you can buy from Rustans.com) to try for the summer to get you in the mood for your next work meeting or online get-together with friends:

5. Jo Malone Yellow Hibiscus (100ml, PHP 8,650)

As part of Jo Malone’s newest Brilliant Blossoms collection, the Yellow Hibiscus is a beaming and juicy light floral scent that’s ideal for summer. It has notes of lime, rose and white musk, and as always, it can be layered with other Jo Malone scents. True to its name, the Yellow Hibiscus also comes in a new yellow bottle design that is both colorful and playful.

If you’re partial to fruity and floral scents, then this light cologne is definitely for you.

4. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau (100ml, PHP 5,650)

Coco Mademoiselle switches to summer mode with its Collection Été—a fresher and fruitier take on their classic fragrance. The Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau is a limited edition release in a handy 100ml travel bottle. Created by In-House Perfumer-Creator Olivier Polge, this citrusy fragrance has notes of bergamot, orange, and jasmine.

This light and generous mist can be sprayed on both the body and the hair! You can even layer this fragrance by first bathing with their limited edition Coco Mademoiselle Le Gel wash.

3. Issey Miyake A Drop d’Issey (90ml, PHP 6,450)

Perfumer Ane Ayo, an avid traveller and a native of Grasse, France, recounts her inspiration for A Drop D’Issey: “To reveal that which is invisible to the naked eye, to craft every detail of the fragrance, as if to conceal surprises at its heart.”

For the Issey Miyake A Drop d’Issey, Ayo chose lilac and recomposed it as if the flower had been picked apart to deliver its subtle secrets. Lilac is then combined with almond milk, star anise, and vanilla to create a musky floral scent for summer. And the result is a surprisingly luxurious creamy floral that isn’t too overpowering.

2. Tom Ford Rose Prick (30ml, PHP 11,070)

One of my favorites from the summer of 2020 and a Tom Ford bestseller, Rose Prick is now being relaunched. But this time, it comes with a matching makeup collection in a limited edition pink packaging. It also includes their iconic Casablanca lipstick—a real stunner!

Tom Ford describes the fragrance as: “The prick of a rose. The slight pain that yields such sensual pleasure. A trilogy of Rose de Mai, Turkish and Bulgarian roses. Sharp and pristine. Warm and sensual.” Overall, it’s a spicy rose Eau De Parfum with notes of Sichuan pepper and turmeric extract—perfect for these hot summer evenings.

1. Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Flora Salvaggia (125ml, PHP 6,850)

If you’re a fan of powdery scents to help you feel fresh when it’s warm, then you’re in for a treat with this newest fragrance from Guerlain’s Aqua Allegoria collection.

Thierry Wasser, Guerlain’s Master Perfumer, and Delphine Jelk harness the power of violets, iris, and white musk to create a powder-scented base for Flora Salvaggia. Top notes of watermelon and other wildflowers lend an air of freshness to the Eau De Toilette, making it an ideal fragrance to start the day with.
