With the official start to summer only two days away, it’s only getting hotter, and decidedly sweatier, from here on out.

And since no doubt you’ve already transitioned your closet to lighter fabrics for the impending dog days of July and August, it’s time to focus on summer-izing your scent.

And we’re not just talking about deodorant.

It’s time for some fresh summer updates to your everyday grooming arsenal. Fact is, a light fragrance in all your primping products can really help keep the stench at bay. (Yes, even in your soap.) And when nature’s cranking the dial on the thermostat, we like to use the same rule of thumb with our grooming as we do our beverages: always better with a hint of citrus and herb.

Now, for a few of the best options to keep you smelling your freshest this summer…
