Make Perfume Your Number One Beach Accessory5 min read
If you’ve already started preparing for your vacation (at least in your mind and when the boss is not around), you are definitely thinking of all the things that you will bring with you to the beach, when the waves are calling your name.
When packing time finally comes, leave just a tiny bit of room in your suitcase (next to the swimsuit and the flipflops, because you know Scentbird’s case is travel-friendly), for your beach-perfect perfume. Apart from smelling really good at the beach, it’s an it ‘summer’ fashion detail. It will help you feel dressed to the nines even though you’re only wearing a teeny tiny bikini, and also feel stylish and unique on a place where everyone’s wearing the same thing.
Now, before I suggest a few beach vacation perfect perfumes for Summer 2017 and before you all scream at your screens that sun and perfume are a match made south of Eden, please let me remind you of this Right VS Wrong Application: How to Wear Perfume in the Summer Tutorial.
Summer perfume application 101
Every perfume contains a certain percentage of alcohol, and as you know, alcohol is photosensitive. When you apply perfume on your pulsating points, you risk turning into a leopard.
The sun could burn the skin in the spots where you have applied perfume, so you are risking developing a body covered in little dark circles.
Luscious scented hair
Wash your hair and while it is still wet, apply perfume on your hair ends. Every time you move your head, the hairs will be releasing thousands of olfactory molecules.
Spray a bit of your perfume deep in your cleavage and you are good to go. The heat of your body will make sure that you release those olfactory molecules and dazzle everyone around you. Still, if you are into topless sunbathing, skip this piece of advice to move onto the next one.
If a fedora is an essential part of your wardrobe, you will love this. Take a small cotton cloth, spray a generous amount of your perfume on it and stick it inside the fedora.
Leave the cloth there for a few days so that scent molecules can infiltrate your favorite accessory. Always remember to return the perfumed cloth back into the fedora when you are not wearing it to keep the scent fresh.
Attention grabbing fragrant bikini
You can highlight your beach sex appeal by scenting your bikini set. Due to the fact that bikinis are usually made of artificial fabrics, you must never apply the perfume straight onto the beachwear.
Instead, try the same trick as with the fedora. Wrap your bikini set in a heavily perfumed piece of cloth and keep it there for a day or so. You can do the same thing with your beach towel, or even better, use a few drops of lavender essential oil to turn your beach towel into a relaxing retreat for your body.
Now that you are fully trained on how to wear perfume under the blazing sun, it is just about time to learn which are the most popular summer perfumes and find out your definition of summer.
Peace, Love and Juicy Couture by Juicy Couture
With a hippie name and flower power combo, Juicy Couture will add instant summer to your tropi(cool) vacay outfit. One spray is all you need to get away from the sunscreen and generic fruit-cocktail scents and get permanent visa for the land of linden blossom befriends honeysuckle and lime.
Fiori Vince Camuto by Vince Camuto
Fiori Vince Camuto is a lovely peaches and citrus confection, begging to cling to your favorite dresses this summer. And your hair. And bikini. But most of all, it will love to cling to the skin of that cute surfer you’ve been eyeing from the moment your feet touched sand. And to be quite honest, it will help you win him over.
Tuscan Fig by Lisa Hoffman
Tuscan Fig is a very original and hearty gourmand perfume with incredibly rich earthiness. Those of you who expect a heavy, sweet scent will be surprised to discover the other end of the gourmand perfume category spectrum: pure, natural dolce indulgence, without synthetic, nose and brain irritating sweetness. Now, that’s what I call a real beach perfume.
Oxford Bleu Pour Femme by English Laundry
Presented in a translucent blue hued bottle, everything about the Oxford Bleu feminine edition screams sex in a perfume bottle. The tartness of the scent intercepts the sweetness of the fruity accord, welcoming the arrival of a unique olfactive sensation, celebrated the most by those who do not have a nose for synthetic and run of the mill citrus meets fruits type of fragrances.
