How to pick your fragrance to avoid the onslaught of the weather.
They say a fragrance is all about its notes, and they couldn’t be more right. The summer is also the best time to put this theory to the test, because the combined onslaught of heat and humidity need your fragrance to work hard for you.
That said, there are some scents that will announce your presence and perk up your mood. Skinn by Titan – India’s largest French fragrance brand, suggests some essential masculine scents to elevate your summer perfume game.
This subtropical citrus fruit has an uplifting and refreshing quality, and is used for its unique sweet yet bitter mix. Being from the citrus family gives it an immediate freshness which, when combined with other smells as bergamot and green apple, enhances the feeling of a pick-me-up. This is a top note in zesty Mediterranean Grove from the house of Skinn.
A surprisingly masculine undertone marks the scent of this temperate flower, which is used for its bold floral imprint. It can be combined with woody or fruity scents to create an elegant fragrance. More than anything, it stays on you longer, and that makes it perfect for the season. This excellent scent also forms the heart of Raw from the house of Skinn.
This and other herbs have an earthy profile, and also essential oils that boost the skin’s response to the heat. With a soothing and comfortable touch, this herb adheres to your pressure points and goes very well with citrus notes. In fact, it is well used to good effect as a top note in Verge from the house of Skinn.
This powerful mineral–or resin –musk has been used to create the right scent for millennia. Its undeniable masculinity makes it a favourite, and it lingers on your skin in the hot weather for hours. Plus, it tends to mask unpleasant smells because of its warm and rich tones. Fitting that it is the base note in Mediterranean Grove.
You don’t really need to say too much about this, except that it is as fresh as you can get. It is also very versatile, and works with any skin or season. It’s perfect for the summer. Lemon oil is a prominent top note in Verge, where it merges well with Spearmint oil.
For a lasting impression that lingers like the outdoors, there’s nothing like wood–be it coniferous such as thuja, cedar or juniper; or timeless like oak and guaiac. These form the base notes of a perfume and are expressive on every man. Raw, in fact, has an enduring base note that merges guaiac wood with Indonesian Patchouli and musky cashmeran.
