There are smells that evoke memories. Aromas that we associate with a home, a person, a stage of life, a particular place, a time. The smell of the salty sea, of tropical suntan oil, of nature, of flowers, of sensual nights… Scents that transport us to summer, to a time of the year when citrus and bergamot notes are there in the fresh, cheerful, and intense – but not cloying – creations from the major perfume brands.
Many of these are exclusive to summer ranges, while others are variations of flagship perfumes, adapted to the season while retaining their characteristic structure. Examples are Calvin Klein with Summer, Escada with Flor del Sol, Atelier Cologne with Love Osmanthus, Giorgio Armani with Ocean di Gioia, Dolce & Gabbana and the classic Light Blue. Some are based on the freshness of ginger root mixed with citrus notes, or the evocative aromes of dahlias, jasmine and other Asian flowers, and some recall the Mediterranean.
At illa Carlemany – the centre of Andorra – you’ll find the perfect summer scent. On the 1st floor you have the Júlia perfumery, a temple of cosmetics and perfumes and a classic in Andorra. There are also great options at L’Occitane en Provence, which, in addition to perfumes, also offers different types of air fresheners for the home, as well as creams, soaps, shower gels, shampoos, and so on.
Undoubtedly, there are many scents of summer, but it also true that there is a perfume for everyone that is sure to evoke good memories.
