Vacations are coming; soft idleness in a postcard setting is on the horizon. Acumen offers you a summer selection, between colognes, solar and iodized notes, for a scent full of light and freshness. 

Bright and sparkling, colognes are unrivaled in their ability to bring lightness to summer.  For L’Eau de Basilic Pourpre, Hermès blends the planty breath of basil with citrus fruits, with an airy feel. The woody base adds tenacity to this joyful score, like a large summer table. Always fresh, Verbena Riviera by Patricia de Nicolaï takes us to the heart of the Mediterranean. A walk carried by the acidic green of verbena, the scent of maquis thyme, on a bed of musk and wood. A novelty with a thirst-quenching elegance. 

There is nothing like white flowers to enhance beautiful days. Their radiant notes embrace the summer light with sensuality, like tuberose, the sunny flower at the heart of French Flower, by Matière Première. Refreshed with ginger at the top, it exhales its creamy coconut nuances, softened with orange blossom, on a bed of amber woods, for an intense trail. 

Or des Iles de Cherigan, a recently relaunched sleeping beauty from the 1920s, also displays a sunny register. A marriage of white flowers – ylang-ylang, jasmine – and vanilla, which plays the vahines with refinement. The perfume cultivates a “monoï” side, that musks and rose dress a powdery softness. The voluptuousness of white flowers, nimbed with a touch of chic. 

Peau Salée, the result of the new collaboration between Téo Cabanel and the clothing brand Modetrotter, smells like summer and the beach. A cocktail of coconut water and solar flowers, refreshed with an iodine and mineral facet. Like the scent of sun-warmed skin, fresh from the ocean. 

A fresh, sexy, and luminous scent-list, to tint your vacations with a suave and summery trail.
