Are you looking for a fragrance that’s uplifting, energetic and powerful? If so, it’s a shrewd move to consider a lemon perfume.
Lemon is a fresh, tangy ingredient that works well in a variety of different fragrances. If you’re considering a lemon-scented perfume, here’s some more information to help you.
Lemon fragrance perfume – what makes it special?
Lemon has been used in perfumes and colognes for centuries. It’s a potent, slightly sharp aroma, which blends excellently with other ingredients.
If you’re looking for an example of lemon perfume in action, our ‘inspired by’ version of Neroli Portofino is the ideal choice. It uses lemon with bitter orange, myrtle and lavender to recreate a summer’s day on the Italian Riviera – which is wonderfully evocative.
Viking is another lemon fragrance perfume that’s worth taking notice of. It combines the citrus fruit with sandalwood, patchouli and vetiver – an effect that’s completely different to Neroli Portofino, while offering the same freshness and zest. This one’s the more rugged, masculine option.
Lemon scented perfume – what to look for
Lemon is a great fragrance for those who like their scents to be elevating, fun and noticeable. Perfumes with lemon in them tend to generate attention, as it’s such a distinctive, appealing aroma. Its connections with the Mediterranean make it ideal for wearing on holiday too.
When you’re browsing online for perfumes with lemon in them, consider the following:
- When will you be wearing it? Some lemon fragrances are fruity and energetic, which makes them perfect for the workplace. Other perfumes use exotic ingredients like amber and oud with the lemon, which turns it into an evening scent.
- How dominant do you want the lemon to be? If you’re looking for something to wake you up, a strong, citrus-dominated fragrance is ideal. However, you might prefer something more subtle, with just a hint of lemon coming through in the top notes.
- What to match it with? Lemon pairs wonderfully with other citrus fruits, such as bergamot, lime and grapefruit. It’s also a good match for coconut and various woods, such as cedar and rose. Some flowers combine successfully with it, such as jasmine blossom and ylang ylang.
If you’re not sure which lemon-based fragrance is right for you, it’s a good idea to test a few out. At Copycat Fragrances, you can find sample 5ml bottles of most of our scents, which provides the ideal opportunity to spray the citrus fragrances in a variety of different situations, both evening and daytime.
