High Temps, Heavy Florals

pink yellow orange flower plumeria

Usually I avoid heavy florals in the hot summer months—in fact, I usually stay away from them all year round. But this year has been different. Suddenly the oppressive New York City heat and humidity has me reaching for heavy florals, even seeking them out.

Why the change of heart you ask? Think of your favorite tropical or beach destinations. I have family living in Hawaii and when I think of Hawaii one of the first things that comes to mind is the scent. Plumeria and lush florals fills the air and it’s not oppressive — it’s intoxicating.

There is something about this reaction between warm air and floral scents that I haven’t connected before now, but they almost seem meant for each other.

When the air is hot and thick, scent doesn’t travel freely as it would on a crisp, dry fall day. It sits on your skin and wraps you up. There is something about this reaction between warm air and floral scents that I haven’t connected before now, but they almost seem meant for each other. Try it yourself and you too might be pleasantly surprised.
