Summer’s here and what better way to beat the heat than with some chic summer perfumes? A chat with some young girls revealed that the youth has eclectic tastes in the perfumes they use. What was interesting to note was that these girls didn’t just pick a perfume, but made it a point to know more about the brand they used.

College student Natasha, for example, prefers the good old Davidoff Cool Water. “I use it throughout the year,” she says.

On the other hand, Urvashi Singh, a lawyer with UTV, loves collecting perfumes and has over 20 in her collection. “I love all of Elizabeth Arden’s creations, and my favourite is Sunflowers, primarily because it’s summery and feminine.”

Model Carina Chhetri swears by Hugo Boss Femme and Burberry, as their scents are floral and sweet-smelling — perfect to wear on a hot summer day.

For 25-year-old Ramola Joshi, it is a mix of perfumes depending on her mood. “For a casual date, I use Tommy Girl. However, if I’m all dressed up, I either use Chanel No. 5 or John Galliano. And for those special occasions, I use Cacharel’s Anais Anais or Cashmere Mist by Donna Karan.”

However, some others, like journalist Divya Dandona, like to stick to just one perfume. Her choice is Calvin Klein’s Escape. “I’m a complete evening person and Escape perfectly complements my personality.”

From flowery to sweet to musky to sporty, the city’s girls definitely seem to have a penchant for fragrances.
