Summer in a bottle: 3 sunny fragrances
Chanel’s Les Exclusifs Eau de Cologne blends sharp citrus fruits and neroli for a fresh, elegant scent that includes just the right amount of floral notes without being overpowering. This is what we imagine chic Parisian ladies shopping Saint-Honoré must smell like.
It wasn’t the typical beach vacay Fresh co-founder Lev Glazman was inspired by for the brand’s new fragrance. He created a scent reminiscent of the lake he and wife/co-founder Alina Roytberg vacation at in Vermont. Their new blend, Fresh Life includes notes of earth (bergamot, vanilla grass and cypress), air (grapefruit, lilac leaves and magnolia), sun (amber, orange and tonka flowers) and water (sweet cucumber and moss).Peace and quiet, not included.
If it’s not the sunny-yellow, polka-dot-and-bee-adorned bottle of the new Marc Jacobs Honey that puts a smile on your face, it’s the happy scent. Pear and mandarin mingle with orange blossom, peach, vanilla and,of course, honey, to create a bright floral scent that pairs perfectly well will popsicles and roof-top parties.
