We’re sharing tips and tricks on how to make your scent last all day, no matter the heat. Discover the secrets to layering fragrances, choosing the perfect application spots, and maintaining a Summer glow while on the go.
Choose your signature scent for Summer
When Summer comes along, reach for lightweight, fresh, and vibrant fragrances. Our signature Honey Infused Fragrance ticks all of these boxes.
All of our Honey Infused products contain our signature Honey Infused Fragrance. This fragrance can be described as a delicate, sweet scent of lush, dewy honey blending into a heart of spring florals inspired by the Mirsalehi Bee Garden whilst citrus notes of apricot and mandarin bring a playful twist to an incredibly nourishing and luxurious aroma.
This is the perfect fresh, feminine fragrance for the Summer. By layering our products you can ensure you’ll smell like you’ve just left the Mirsalehi Bee Garden wherever you go.
Layering fragrances for longevity
Fragrance layering is a technique that allows you to enhance and extend the longevity of your favorite scent by incorporating it into different aspects of your beauty routine. By using products from the same fragrance family, such as skincare, haircare, and perfume, you can ensure your fragrance lingers throughout the day (even in hot Summer weather!).
Boosting scent longevity with body care
When it comes to fragrance layering, consistency is key. Begin with Gisou’s Honey Infused Body Oil as your base layer.
Unlike heavy lotions or creams, our body oil is incredibly lightweight and easily absorbed, making it ideal for hot and humid weather. This product will provide intense hydration, replenishing the skin's moisture barrier and preventing dryness and flakiness. Our ultra-nourishing formula is an antioxidant powerhouse rich in Omegas 3, 6 & 9 to deeply nourish, strengthen the skin’s surface, and provide long-lasting moisture, promoting a healthy Gisou glow.
An additional benefit is that moisturized and hydrated skin is better at retaining fragrances as compared to dry skin. This means that all of your perfumes and fresh fragrances will last longer during Summer if you apply them to moisturized skin.
How to Use
- After bathing or showering, apply the Honey Infused Body Oil to damp skin, this will leave your skin feeling silky soft and hydrated, and provide a perfect base layer for any fragrance.
Incorporating hair care into your fragrance profile
Next, use our Honey Infused Hair Wash & Conditioner in your haircare routine, to infuse your locks with the same delightful aroma. This step not only enhances the overall fragrance experience but also leaves a subtle trail of scent as you move. Keeping your hair clean during the summer is important because hot weather can increase sweat and oil production.
Next, reach for our Honey Infused Hair Perfume. Enriched with the natural goodness of the Mirsalehi Honey from the Mirsalehi Bee Garden, this hair perfume not only refreshes and scents your hair but also offers a number of essential benefits for the Summer season
Formulated with Gisou's signature fragrance, which beautifully captures the floral notes from the Mirsalehi Bee Garden, our Hair Perfume leaves behind an irresistible trail of aroma wherever you go.
One of the standout features of our Hair Perfume is its nourishing and hydrating properties, thanks to the inclusion of Mirsalehi Honey and Argan Oil. These precious ingredients work wonders by smoothing the hair, enhancing its shine, and taming frizz. So while you enjoy the Summer sun, your hair stays hydrated, frizz-free, and beautifully scented.
The difference between hair perfume and traditional perfume
Unlike traditional fragrances for the skin that contain high levels of ethyl alcohol, which can be drying to the hair and scalp, our Hair Perfume contains only a trace amount of alcohol, making it much safer for your hair. This means you can spritz it throughout your hair without worrying about any unwanted dryness or damage.
One of our favorite features of this product is that it contains a UV filter, meaning it will also keep your locks protected from the sun when you’re out and about! If you’ll be in the sun for an extended period of time - don’t forget to cover up.
How to use:
- Simply divide your hair into layers and apply 1 to 3 sprays per layer, spraying from an arm's length distance to ensure even distribution.
- It can be used as the finishing touch to your hair care or styling routine or as a quick refresher throughout the day.
The delicious scent of the Hair Perfume lingers all day long, ensuring that you stay fresh and beautifully fragranced, even on the hottest of Summer days.
Finish up your fragrance layering with a regular perfume or eau de toilette. To compliment our Honey Infused Fragrance, opt for something with Floral or Citrus notes.
The base notes of a fragrance are intensified in the warmest places of your body. For the most long-lasting results spritz the pulse points on your wrists, behind your knees (yes, really), onto your chest, and behind your ears.
Extra tips to smell good all summer
Stay fresh on the go
Take our pocket-sized Honey Infused Hair Perfume with you wherever you go for a quick refresh whenever needed.
We have also recently launched our Honey Infused Beauty Balm Travel Size, the perfect travel-sized alternative to the Honey Infused Beauty Balm. Use the beauty balm as a treatment product for any problem in dry areas such as your cuticles, knees, and elbows. You can also apply this ultra nourishing balm to your pulse points to give you a subtle Honey Infused aroma.
Wear breathable fabrics
Your skin needs to breathe during the Summer and synthetic fabrics like polyester and nylon, which are commonly used in Summery clothes, suffocate the skin and can leave you feeling sticky and sweaty (no thanks!). Stick to natural fabrics like cotton, linens, and silks as they absorb sweat, allowing the heat to escape from your body faster.
Skincare and hygiene
This may seem like an obvious one, but take your time to keep your hair, skin, and body clean and hydrated during the Summer months to help you feel and smell your freshest!
Keep your Fragrances Cool
Store your cosmetic products in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. All of our Honey and Propolis Infused Products need to be stored this way for preservation.
