Do summer heat and intense sun deter you from wearing perfume?
Are you sensitive to the potentially skin-irritating combination of sun and fragrance?
Do you get a headache from too much sun and a heady perfume?
Do you wear perfume on the beach?
Do you abstain from scented delights when the heat is on?
I definitely have to watch what I’m wearing when it gets really hot.
I have very sensitive skin that reacts to perfume often at the best of times and this is unfortunately exacerbated by heat.
I am not that easily deterred though, I wear fragrance on more hidden spots (also to avoid hyperpigmentation that can be triggered by some naturals like lavender or citrus oils), and stick to lighter fragrances – my Hermès collection in its entirety is what gets me through hot spells.
My new best friend Roger&Gallet Fleur d’Osmanthus is also great for muggy days and for evenings I trust in Vero Profumo Mito or So Oud Ouris Eau Fine.
So far I’ve tolerated these well, plus minus a few itchy spots.
What about you? Is heat and wearing perfume in combination a concern for you?
