Worried about the body odour? Abdulla Ajmal, Consulting Perfumer at Ajmal Perfumes, tells how to keep the smell away.

“Summer perfumes usually are citrus-based that cool the skin and envelope the wearer in fresh uplifting aroma. The summer sun can agitate the fragrance, causing it to evaporate faster rather than sticking to your skin. Thus, it’s ideal to carry your summer fragrance in your bag and keep reapplying throughout the day.

“Mostly, men prefer citrus scents and in the summer months women tend to lean that way as well. Bear in mind, the best citrus-based fragrance choices are the ones that are reinforced with woody, floral and fruity notes to make the fragrance stay on you for longer.

“Choose fragrances that are a hallmark of freshness to get the best contrast with the hot weather,” Abdulla said.

* It’s a good idea to layer and look out for brands that sell the body lotion, deodorant, EDT and miniatures. Post-shower use the body lotion and deodorant, then target warm spots and pulse areas with EDT and carry the miniature in your bag for a backup spritz.

* It’s important to recognise what scents suit your PH. What may smell great on a friend may not work for you. Before purchasing, spray the scent you love on the wrist of your left hand and elbow of your right hand.
