Our sense of smell has the strongest connection to memories. Certain aromas can bring you back to a phase in your life while others might remind you of a specific person. Fragrances allow for particular incidents or memories to stay longer in our mind. Choosing your personal fragrance is indicative of how you wish others to remember you, with your signature scent being the final touch to complete your look. Throughout our lives, this signature scent can change and when a new season arrives, it is a great time to change your fragrance to compliment.
As the summer heat bears down on us, it’s time to indulge in a longer lasting scent to help keep you energized and smelling fresh throughout the day. Here, Ebraheem Al Samadi, Founder of Forever Rose, provides his top tips for updating your summer scent to keep you feeling fresh and ready for the day:
Going local and strong
Stronger notes tend to stay for longer and overpower the humid feeling without overwhelming your senses. The Taif rose is renowned for producing the most fragrant blossoms, used to create aroma. The blossoms are exclusively grown in the south-west of Saudi Arabia and represent the essence of the region. Incorporate the scent to your fragrance repertoire with the beautiful Desert Rose Oud from Forever Rose. The fragrance combines fresh, balsamic notes and is perfect for a feminine touch to the season.
Infused with oils
A great way to incorporate long lasting scents are by using fragrances that are infused with oil. These types of fragrances stay longer when in contact with your skin. Opt for a scent that strikes a balance between floral, woody with an essential oil combined to give you the perfect concoction, such as with London Rose. This distinctive and spicy scent embodies the spirit of a city with a blend of the most luxurious and long-lasting raw essential oils.
Fragrance your surroundings
The fragrance of a room can be just as powerful as that on the skin. Oud sticks are an easy yet effective option for creating an energising atmosphere that is fragrant and fresh. The incense sticks fill your senses and uplift your soul after a hot day. Alternatively, burning oud sticks within the vicinity of your wardrobe can add a subtle fragrance to your clothes. The Luxury Oud Set from Forever Rose is both stylish and perfectly scented to suit your summer needs.
