Usually when one talks about rose based fragrances, one tends to assume it is a scent meant for ladies of a certain age. It couldn't be farther from the truth. A number of perfume houses have fragrances with the exquisite rose scent and these are gaining a lot of popularity with ladies of all ages. Goya's Black Rose is one such excellent rose based fragrance. Black Rose was first launched in 1955 and was very popular in the 50-80s. In 2014, the scent was recreated from the original archived formula and the classic was brought back! I had not used the original version so I could not compare the relaunched version to the older one but let me tell you straight up, the newer version is exquisite - very youthful and stylish - like a beautiful bouquet of fragrant roses.
I love the transition of seasons. It brings along with it changes in natural scenery, changes in our wardrobe and also changes in the fragrances we wear. While some people tend to stick to their signature scents others switch it up depending on the season. I belong to the latter category. You could call me a fragrance butterfly as I change my perfume frequently - it depends on the season, my mood, outfit etc. Heat causes fragrances to project farther afield while also evaporating faster. So, my pick for Summers are scents that are lighter and with citrus or floral notes because these project well in the summer heat. Although we have had the odd downpour over the last couple of days, warmer climes are still around with temperatures set to reach 28 deg C next week. To help you pick some Summer fragrances, I have rounded up five amazing scents that are perfect for the current season.
