Spring has been in the air for some time, which means it is time for men to change to a lighter scent for the season if they have not already. Personally, in warm weather I wear Acqua di Parma Colonia, a lemony scent with a floral undertone that hasn't changed since its origination in 1916.
I wear the stuff because it stays on the skin for a while. I no longer wear the scent I best like to sniff, Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet, a delicate combination of pine and floral notes. Unfortunately, Blenheim Bouquet dissipates in an hour, leaving me wondering why I bothered.
By the way, I cannot say enough good things about the ladies at The Perfumed Court, who specialize in offering decants of virtually every fragrance under the sun so a man can try fragrances before buying a full bottle. I went through dozens of them before settling on the ones that work for me.
And in spring, that is Acqua di Parma Colonia.
