As we enter the warmer summer months, now is the perfect time to switch up your fragrance. Summer cries out for a lighter take on perfume with winter’s musks, ambers and ouds being replaced with bright and fresh citrus scents. Brands such as Tom Ford and Acqua di Parma have become synonymous with the scents of the Mediterranean, and notes of mandarin, lemon and neroli all feature heavily in their fragrance line-up. For summer 2019 Acqua di Parma evokes the vitality of a walk in Tuscany’s natural parks with a scent based around Cypress trees, a fixture of the Tuscan landscape. For many brands their summer releases aim to capture the smell of sun on the skin, mixing sparkling citrus notes with soft musks for the perfect summer fragrance combination. Here we take a look at the best new perfumes for summer 2019 including offerings from Diptyque, Dolce & Gabbana and Floris.
