The dry summer heat gets to the best of us, and nothing feels better than a spritz of a perfume with notes sweet as honey. Okay, I’m instantly feeling cooler in this sweltering heat as I write about this! While sweet smelling floral perfumes do a good job of keeping you fresh and any body odour at bay (given all the sweating and all), they can sometimes be overwhelming. One spritz can trigger sneezing and sometimes even a headache. This is exactly why we came up with this list, especially for those with a heightened sense of smell. They’re both mild and long-lasting. Take your pick ladies, and indulge in some floral freshness.
