Liquid luxury, that’s what a fragrance is. The right perfume is a personal trademark that can start a journey,  awake a memory, make you feel more mysterious, sophisticated, or sexy. Your signature scent can tickle other’s fancy, stir up imagination, make you literally unforgettable. No surprise we can’t do without this invisible accessory (click to discover my absolute last year favourites)! However, whether you are faithful to a few or like me are a restless collector ( proof of my obsession to be found here), in summer we must be careful in choosing our scent. High temperatures can definitely affect a fragrance’s performance so it’s very important to pick one that’s going to last unmodified when the heat is unbearable,  so here are my top five choices tested and definitely approved  for this Summer. One for every nose !
