5 Fresh Fragrances to Make You Smell Like Summer

Scents influence your everyday life in so many different ways; they spark your memories, they affect your emotions and they can even improve your health. According to Ambius, studies reveal that people can remember a scent with “65 percent accuracy after one year, while visual memory sinks to 50 percent after only a few months.”

People associate smells with memories, people, places and brands. A fragrance is an experience—and an unforgettable one at that. So, make some memories and emotional connections this summer with these fresh, elegant and seasonal scents.
