How you choose to wear a summer scent is nearly as important as which one you choose to wear. When it’s rainy or humid, it’s best to spritz a bit of your perfume onto your clothing since damp skin won’t hold scent, explains the Paris-based perfumer Francis Kurkdjian. If a long, hot weekend in Marrakech is in the near future, on the other hand, you may want to apply an unscented moisturizer first to ensure that your skin doesn’t absorb too much fragrance in the dry desert heat.
“Fragrance is like a garment – it dresses you”, says the perfume whiz frederic Malle.
“If you’re partial to wintery spices or rich florals like tuberose, just mist some your hair for a lighter application or wear your fragrance in the evening when it’s cooler outside so the heat won’t intensify the experience,” suggests Malle.
