Smelling good all day long is the main motto during summers. Maintaining personal hygiene by bathing twice a day and applying perfumes or deodorants becomes the basic necessity of this hot season. As it is summer, the usage of perfumes and deodorants increase. To smell good and prevent body odour, you spray perfume all over your body and dress.
The most practical way to start describing a perfume is according to the elements of the fragrance notes of the scent or the "family" it belongs to, all of which affect the overall impression of a person from application to the last lingering hint of scent.
