We usher in our summer season with our 2021 SUMMER EscENTIALS: The sky is blue, the grass is green, the sun is yellow. This may sound like the perfect summer day and probably makes sense when you pick your colors from a children’s paintbox. But what about all the subtle tones and delicate shades that add detail, depth and sentiment to summer sason?
It’s the almost imperceptibly nuanced gradient from navy blue to turquoise to emerald green that makes us marvel at the vastness of the ocean. And it’s that magic moment when the almost whitish southern skies opalescent into a rainbow of buttery yellow, carnation, amethyst and finally a hazy prussian blue, that leaves us speechless at the end of a hot summer day.
Enjoy our pick of six substantial summer scents, brought to you in an breathtakingly beautiful photo series by Paris photographer Marie Flores that capture the many colors of summer.
