I am doing a small but very fun project on my blog, called Perfume Stars: Summer Favorites, in which I ask some of the most interesting people in the perfume industry about the fragrances they prefer to wear in warm weather and about their preferred holiday destinations. I decided to cross-post Nobi’s, Clement’s and Laurent’s answers here, with some additional pictures kindly provided by Clement.

Laurent Le Guernec

What are you favorite summer fragrances? What are the characteristics of your ideal summer scent?

“My summer fragrance is the same as my regular fragrance, because I wear a lot of fresh fragrances. For me it is more a mood thing rather than a season thing.”

What is your favorite holiday destination?

“I love to go places where you can relax and visit at the same time, and Mexico is great for that. But my best vacations still is 3 weeks in the south of France. I’m sure there are many places like that but I haven’t been there yet.”

Nobi Shioya

What are you favorite summer fragrances? What are the characteristics of your ideal summer scent?

“Why would I want to spoil my BO with men’s fragrances? Here’s how to make the ultimate men’s scent for summer. Go to a boxing gym on a sizzling hot day. Inside the above-90-degree gym with closed windows, do the two-hour routine including sparing with black, Puerto Rican, and red-haired white fighters. Get the sparring partners’ sweat, saliva, and blood over your body. You will feel and look like you swam in olive oil after that. Don’t take a shower after, in stead, pour 2 to 3 oz. of the 2005 version of 100% Love all over yourself. You will feel sexier than Brad Pitt in Fight Club.”

What is your favorite holiday destination?

“I cannot decide on one destination… my favorite destinations will vary depending on the season, my mood, and the length of the vacation. If I have two to three weeks around Christmas and New Year’s, I will stay in Big Island and hop to the other islands. If it’s one week around Thanks Giving, I will go somewhere on the Atlantic coast in Mexico or Belize. For summer, two weeks in the South of France will be perfect.”
