The burning question we ask ourselves this week is ‘Do fragrances come in and out of fashion, like a trend, at certain times of the year’? In other words, are there sometimes ‘Trending Fragrances’, and if so, what are the current fragrance trends of right now?
Well the answer is sort of. It’s not a definite yes or no, so let us explore and explain further…
OK, so there is an element of various fragrances having their moment of enormous popularity at a certain time of the year, for example our Christmas scents, which include notes of cinnamon, home baked cookies and sweet candy, or the rich and ripe Black Cherry are all favoured as the must-have fragrances in the depths of winter due to their warming, indulgent scents that evoke the spirit of Christmas. These festive inspired scents simply wouldn’t have quite the same effect in the height of hot summers when our thoughts predominately turn to the need for more invigorating, uplifting and refreshing aromas instead.
Also fruity, summer scents such as our Sweet Pea and Lilac Blossom are truly reminiscent of the start of spring, as flowers are getting into full bloom, the days are getting longer and the evenings become lighter.
So in this sense, yes certain fragrances will certainly trend at different times of the year.
However there will always be staple scents that are powerful at healing, uplifting or de-stressing at any time, such as vanilla and white tea, so these are always going to be required and lusted after all throughout the year. See below for our favourite anytime, always on trend fragrances.
