The best fragrances for a day out should be light, bright, and playful. Whether you’re enjoying a walk on the promenade, having a picnic date, or spending a day on the beach, you want to wear something relaxed and fun. 

Here are 5 of the best scents for a day out worth discovering!

Wanted by Azzaro

This citrus, spicy scent from Azzaro gets compliments left and right. The sweet lemon note from the opening is refined so you won’t have to worry about smelling like lemonade or pledge. Guatemalan cardamom and mint add a nice layer of spices to keep things interesting. While an argument can be made to wear this  fragrance at night, its light and bright accord makes this best suitable for a day out.

L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Fraiche by Issey Miyake

If you loved the classic original L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme, but would like a new take on it, then Fraiche achieves your desires. Whereas the classic original opens with a fizzy soda vibe, Fraiche opens with a sharp citrus note.  As Fraiche dries down, the famed fizzy accord begins to appear highlighted by bright bergamot and grapefruit notes. Finally as the scent settles down, the bright citrus once again takes over. While the original has freshness, Fraiche stays brighter and fresher for far longer.

Fiesta Carioca by Escada

Escada has long ruled the tropical fragrance space. That’s not to say others haven’t designed amazingly interesting and complex tropical fragrances, but for a simplistic and fun, let’s have a party by/on/near the beach take on fragrances — Escada takes the cake. Fiesta Carioca keeps the party going with passionfruit, raspberry and a light blend of exotic floral notes.

While fragrances are often advertised as for men or women, this is strictly an advertising gimmick that was created ages ago to sell fragrances to men that didn’t want to wear perfume as they thought that was something only women did. Scent doesn’t know gender. You determine what scents are most wearable for your lifestyle, not by how they’re advertised.
