It’s beyond question that it’s been, safe to say, a tough year for many. We’ve experienced the sights, smells and emotions of freedom, and had them taken away, more times than we should have to count. But with each new dawn, and the warmer months, comes the hope that we’ll be back in the beer gardens and bustling restaurants we know and love before we know it. And given a good fragrance’s power to evoke positivity and optimistic emotions, it’s worth getting each and every day off to a good start by adjusting your grooming and homewares. These are the scents that not only fit the warmer months, but hopefully a new mood around the nation.
It’s a classic one for spring, sure, but citrusy scents remain, and always will remain, the backbone of some iconic spring/summer fragrances. They can range from the sweet, luxurious tones of bergamot to more tangy scents like lemon and lime, and are almost endless in their versatility when combining with spice and wood. Hunter Candles’ Australia Candle nails the brief by combining lemon myrtle with blue gum and wattle, both staple scents of the Australian Spring beginning to bloom, while Aesop’s Citrus Melange body care range remains an icon that everyone in your household will love.
With the scents of blooming florals inland also come the warmth of sand and the ocean breeze, and there remains something timeless and charming about a fragrance that refreshes and awakens the senses with a maritime feel. Not too keen on aquatic colognes? Take a more subtle approach by incorporating sea salt into your grooming routine. Modern Pirate’s sea salt hair/body combo is a great place to start.
The rise of the unisex cologne has proven to us all that floral scents don’t have to be exclusively feminine – and in fact will often turn more heads and draw more compliments than your standard summer-aligned fragrances. Opt for a cologne that errs more towards the unisex than the straight-up masculine, and you’ll be surprised where it takes you. In fact, Aussie brand Who Is Elijah makes an Eau de Parfum for that very reason.
Spice is typically associated with leathery, musky, wintery scents, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way. In fact, some companies are having fantastic luck combining peppery, fresh spices with florals to create invigorating, luxurious medleys of scent. Try Bondi Wash’s hand wash, which combines Tasmanian pepper and Lavender to create a springtime scent that has a bit of edge.
