It’s hard to admit that summer will eventually come to an end. Between finding the time to squeeze in one more beach trip and spending as much time by the pool as possible, don’t forget to enjoy the little details that make summer truly special.
Life is built around experiences, and we use each and every one of our senses to interact with the world around us. Scent is surprisingly powerful when it comes to cultivating a feeling or an ambiance. It can transport you to another place entirely or bring you right back home.
As the summer gives way to fall, keep your favorite summer scents close so you can capture every single second this magical season has to offer.
