6 Summer Fragrances That Are Eau So Pretty for a Bride
When winter ends, we strip off layers of heavy clothes and opt for perfumes that are light and airy (and with good reason -- heat intensifies fragrance). But that doesn’t mean the season’s newest offerings all smell the same. These perfumes hit the high notes for us, from a romantic gentle beach breeze and freshly cut flowers to an exotic citrus.
Terry de Gunzburg Bleu Paradis is a tropical blend of litchi, rose, and cedar.

With hints of bergamot, lemon zest, and mimosa, this fragrance channels a clothesline with laundry flapping in the warm air.
