The sun is out, the skies are blue and the cold winter is hopefully becoming nothing more than a distant memory here in the Algarve, so it’s time to put away those opaque tights and furry boots and pull your sandals and shorts to the front of the wardrobe (hands up those who have already had their flip flops on already!).
If you are not quite ready to give up your winter wardrobe, then to get into the spring and summer mood why not spritz on one of the latest fresh summer fragrances now hitting the shops across the region?
There are plenty of new fragrances for the Spring/Summer 2011 season, with choices for men, women and even unisex scents that cover both options.
A long time summer favourite is the Davidoff Cool Water range and this year a limited edition summer fragrance has been released for men and for women.
The Davidoff Cool Water Man Summer Dive fragrance has been blended to recreate that feeling of just coming out of the sea with aquatic notes and citrus scents for a vibrant, energising, masculine scent.
A more heady choice for men is the new Eau de Parfum Intense Collector Pininfarina. With a sleek and bold red bottle evoking thoughts of Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Maserati, it comes as no surprise that this scent has been born of a collaboration between
Guerlain and the sports design studio of Pininfarina and is the epitome of all things masculine.
Nothing screams spring more than a floral fragrance and Chloé have come up with the perfect spring scent with their limited edition, Chloé Rose Edition.
This fragrance is a variation of the Chloé Eau de Parfum released in 2008 and is a fresh, feminine perfume with a strong nod in the direction of a bouquet of roses – hence the name.
A lighter summer choice for ladies is the newly released Eternity Summer perfume from Calvin Klein, with top notes of violets combined with jasmine, mimosa and lotus.
As fresh as a summer meadow this is a great one to get you in the mood for the new season and comes complete with a stylish pink bottle.
If you are torn as to whether to indulge yourself or your loved one to a new fragrance then why not go for the best of both worlds with a unisex choice that you both can use and Calvin Klein are masters in this area.
The CK One brand has been an international best seller for years now and their CK One Summer limited edition looks to be just as popular as this refreshing, cool and vibrant scent aims to reflect the intensity of the summer sun and manages to be appealing for both sexes.
If you still can’t make up your mind then pay a visit to one of the many perfume stores in the region and take your time to pick out your perfect new summer fragrance.
It´s a new season so why not treat yourself!
