What Does Summer Smell Like? Summer smells like beach baths, picnics in the park, and fresh fruit. It's the scent of endless sunsets and unforgettable trips that you want to relive again and again.
In essence, the scents of summer evoke those moments of relaxation and fun that we cherish during this season. Citrus notes take the spotlight with their light and refreshing qualities, like lemon, orange, and bergamot. You can also catch whiffs of tropical fruits such as coconut, mango, or pineapple. And, of course, the refreshing scents of the sea and the ocean are ever-present.
In today's blog, we bring you the perfect guide to infuse each summer occasion with delightful aromas. Let's embark on this aromatic journey together!
