When the temperature rises, our hemlines get shorter, our necklines lower, and our beauty routine simplified as moisturizers are traded in for serums and body creams for spray-on sunscreen. But as for the perfect scent to pair with our crisp button-down and bermuda shorts get-up, we turn to these fresh fragrances to keep us cool this summer.
