So to celebrate were breaking out some lighter, brighter, fresher fragrances that mirror our sunnier moods.
First in line, LOccitanes Verbena Summer Secret Eau de Toilette, £34, which is so peppy we promise it will revive and refresh even the woefully tired, hot and deskbound snap it up when it hits shelves in July.
Diptyques new Vetyverio, from £45, is a great all-dayer, fresh vetiver tempered with a musky sandalwood makes it a classic - perfect when your usual scent just doesnt feel quite right.
Finally my summer evenings would not be complete without Jo Malones divine annual limited edition fragrance, Dark Amber and Ginger Lily cologne, £64. The musk warms gorgeously onto bare skin and if you wear it until September youll be reminded of warmer days for even longer.
