'Cool' as in cooling for hot weather - I'm loving today's mini heatwave!
I posted a feature last summer on perfumes for hot weather, you can read it Here
I don't have too many to add to those choices, they're still some of my favourites, and today I'm wearing Prada's Infusion de Fleur d'Oranger - an uplifting soapy, not too sweet orange blossom.
Other perfumes I'd add to those on last year's list are Kelly Caleche in edt by Hermes - a refreshing grapefruit/floral with underlying leather notes. I'm also finding some of the Middle East-inspired Oud perfumes appealing. That dry, smoky woodiness is also most refreshing in hot weather - not disimilar in effect to vetiver perfumes. One of my favourites is MFK's Silk Mood, which opens on a beautiful light, sweet rose and develops its more Oud-yness into drydown.
