Just like seasons, your wardrobe essentials must change too. So, monsoon is a good time to invest in some new fragrances that suit the rainy days ahead.

•Chic for her All Good Scents –This one features notes of green apple, hyacinth, cedar infused with bamboo and white rose. It will bring the much-needed warmth to a cold rainy day.

•Chloe Fleur Eau De Parfum – This delicate fragrance has notes of rose and cherry blossom. Perfect to cheer you up on a dull day.

•Yves Saint Laurent L’Homme – Enjoy the edgy grey and blue feel with cardamom and ginger essence. If this doesn’t remind you of monsoon, then nothing will.

•Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio – This scent for men is a tribute to the Mediterranean Sea with its marine notes and scent of patchouli.

•Vetiver by All Good Scents – This fragrance evokes earthy notes and scent and will remind you of the onset of monsoon with its petrichor notes.

Here are some tips to remember while picking the right fragrance:

Pick fragrances that have citrus, fresh floral, marine, woody and musky notes. These will leave a better sillage (the degree to which a perfume lingers) in hot and humid weather.

•Spray fragrance on pulse points such as inside of the wrists, behind the ears, on the neck and chest. This will help the fragrance bloom better.

•Opt for lighter body mist to go with your perfume. These contain more water and are refreshing without leaving the skin dry.

•Avoid heavy amber, oriental and leather-based scents.
