As far as we’re concerned, summer holidays should last for ever. That’s why we’re bringing you four perfume hacks to keep your summer holiday going WAY after your flight lands back home….
1. WEAR ONE PERFUME ON YOUR HOLIDAY
Yep, we know it’s super-hard, but when the holiday packing list looms, it’s time to choose your main summer holiday scent. Pick a perfume you can wear from sunrise to sunset, like Paco Rabanne Olympéa Legend – a perfect blend of palm flowers, plum and ginger lily.
For guys, there’s the matching scent Invictus Legend, which oozes grapefruit and solar salty accord (the smell of salty sea air). Our top tip? Opt for a perfume you’ve not worn before, and when you smell it once you’re home, you’ll again be reminded of those incredible memories.
2. SPRAY YOUR CLOTHES WHEN YOU GET BACK HOME
You heard us! One of the best ways to keep your summer holiday lasting for ever is to spray your clothes when you’re back home (after washing them, of course). Every time you wear them you’ll be reminded of the memories of exploring local towns, strolling along the beach or lounging by the pool. Blissful, eh? Remember to spritz your clothes from an arm’s length away for maximum effect. Your clothes (and you) have never smelled so good…
3. …AND YOUR SUITCASE!
It may sound strange, but make sure you spray the suitcase you brought on your summer vacay, too. Why? Well, even if you’re packing for a different holiday, you’ll always be reminded of your incredible time away. Plus, you’re practically winning at life when your suitcase smells lush.
4. BUY A MINI 30ML BOTTLE OF YOUR SUMMER HOLIDAY SCENT
Grab a mini, travel-sized perfume of your summer holiday scent to REALLY raise your game. Ideal for carrying in your day bag, your new little bestie is there not only when you want to smell insane, but also when you want to relive all the fun you had abroad. We’re digging YSL Mon Paris Florale in 30ml at the moment, which smells of orange flower, magnolia and jasmine (along with fruity accords of peach and pear, too). And for guys, you’ll want nothing other than Versace Eros Flame in 30ml to up the heat, with its fiery smells of lemon, pepper and rosemary.
