Isn’t it hot this summer? Indeed, it is. Wherever we go we see everyone struggling to wipe off sweat and its bad smell by using perfumes. No doubt that there are many products available in the market that are floral, woody, herbal, etc but not all are strong to deal with summer. We need something that should smell strong and also make us feel refreshing throughout the day.
Mint and heat makes the great combo. Mint is a herb that has a natural refreshing scent. It not only smell great, but also triggers cold receptors in our brain.
Mint is the only note in the perfumery world that has suffered for its associations. There are many perfumes that smell the burning dust or old lying clothes in the chests, which are quite popular and are priced high too. But when it comes to the mint, people hesitate to opt for it as they feel that it reminds of toothpaste or a mouthwash. This is true too, as mint has been commonly used for such purposes due to its refreshing tastes.
Nowadays, the tastes and preferences of people are changing. They want to experiment new and lively. On the same ground, mint is not left behind and is now gaining prominence in perfumery sector too. When dusky-woods, lime, sandalwood, etc can be used alternatively for soaps as well as perfumes, then mint is also acceptable as a perfumery product. Mint is soft in fragrance and leaves a soothing effect on the mind. Mint oils and mint fragrances are now liked by many, especially, during summer and spring seasons. This is the time we want to feel freshness within ourselves to keep charged throughout the day. Mint can do this task perfectly.
