People tend to fall into two categories: those who wear their "signature scent" all year round or those who change theirs to match the season. Switching scents seasonally is very common, especially in the UK where seasons are very defined.
When selecting a seasonal scent, it's important to think about how you feel and what you do during this time. For example, Winter months tend to be cold so typically you would want a warming, spicy scent and for Summer you would look for lighter, fresh scents that keep you energised during the longer days.
What is a Fresh Scent?
Fragrance notes can be separated into 4 sections based on the fragrance wheel: Floral, Fresh, Ambery and Woody notes. Most popular in Summer months for their uplifting and light fragrance, Fresh scents can be described as fruity, citrusy, green and watery.
Discover Your New Scent For Summer
Bright and clean, or fruity and sweet - ARRAN Sense of Scotland have the perfect Fresh Summer scents for you to try.
Kildonan - Violet Leaf & Orris
Instantly transport yourself to warm, sunny beaches, lined with silver sand all through the power of smell. Our first new fragrance in 10 years, Kildonan's top notes of violet leaf and lily-of-the-valley create a fresh, 'green', ozonic scent. Interestingly, violet leaf differs greatly from the sweet, powdery scent associated with violets. Violet leaf has fresh, cucumber-like scent which is often found in Men's fragrances, making Kildonan the perfect unisex scent.
Glen Rosa - Fig & Ylang Ylang
Undoubtedly the most exotic of our scents, Glen Rosa blends fig, ylang ylang and coconut to create this fruity, warming aroma. Inspired by the vibrant summer sunsets on the Isle of Arran, Glen Rosa captures the essence of a moment in nature.
Glenashdale - Grapefruit & Green Leaf
Inspired by the invigorating falls on the Island, Glenashdale blends zesty grapefruit and warm green leaf to create this mood-boosting scent. If you enjoy a fruity scent however find they can be too sweet, Glenashdale has a fruity scent with a sharp twist - making it refreshing during the Summer heat.
Machrie - Sea Salt & Rock Rose
The epitome of fresh - ozonic sea salt, rock rose and clary sage create this Men's fragrance. The typical fresh ozonic, marine notes from sea salt and green scent of clary sage blend well together, creating an aroma that's reminiscent of walks along beaches and rockpools.
