Change Your Fragrance To Match The Weather

Spring in Chicago is a fleeting two-day phenomena, meaning Windy City denizens go straight from bitter winter into summery heat. That quick switch also means it’s time for a complete– and quick!– overhaul of my beauty routine.

First up: perfume. In the winter I tend to prefer musky, warm scents, but once summer hits, I seek light, airy notes of citrus and floral like these:

White rose, granny smith apple, citrus and jasmine dance above cedarwood and musk, making D&G Light Blue ($44) my go-to summer scent. It lasts all day too, carrying me from the office into happy hour.


Juicy papaya, rich coconut and fresh pineapple flirt with a clean musk in Sharon Bolton Soul ($42), reminding me of long afternoons on the beach.

Fruity peach and freesia are balanced by peppery white hibiscus, white wood and orris, making Tommy Hilfiger Dreaming ($60) a very wearable, light scent even in the summer swelter.
