We are in the throws of summer, and many of you guys don't realize you're still wearing your winter fragrance - yes fragrances should be worn by season. When the weather warms up, it's time to put away those musk scents and pull out your sweet citrus filled scents. There are many options out there right now, and below I'm listing some of my favorite scents to wear during the warmer months.
The pioneer of fragrances is Chanel, and their Bleu parfume lives up to their reputation. Infused with crisp citrus notes and slight wood undertones (to keep it masculine), this scent is vibrant and fresh. If you splurge on any fragrance, this should be your go-to. (1.7 oz $90 @nordstorm)

A classic and one scent every man should own is Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana, and this summer edition Swimming In Lipari takes their original citrus notes and amps it up with a burst of grapefruit and rosemary. This scent will have you wanting to swim in the Aeolian Islands. (2.5 oz $68 @sephora)

Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Cologne
Jo Malone is one of my favorite fragrance brands, their scents are fresh and elegant, and you have the ability to wear them solo or layered for a truly individual experience. The Lime Basil and Mandarin scent is a part of their signature collection; while it may sound feminine, us guys are able to pull this one off. (30ml $65 @jomalone)
Jean Paul Gaultier LE MALE
An oldie but goodie and one of my go-to fragrances is LE MALE by JPG. One of the most sensual sexy fragrances is filled with warm vanilla and refreshing notes of lavender, fern, and menthol. While some may disagree - this is a fragrance you can wear year-round. (2.5 oz $71 @nordstom)
