Scents, no matter how soft or strong they may be, possess an unnerving magic that brings us back to the fondest or just plain particular moments in our lives. Like how we know the lyrics to a beloved song frequently listened to so long ago, our hearts know exactly where we spent summer 12 years ago with a single sniff of gardenia or that first picnic you had with your sweetheart when you spritz on your signature notes. Whatever they may be, heavenly scents are key to preserving the best memories, even more so than a photograph. You may see the moment, but with the right scent, you can feel everything all at once. Give these classics a try for your warm days ahead, varying in floral to fruity, but all fresh and best of all, romantic for the memories ahead that you won’t be forgetting.
