We thought that it would be really interesting to ask some perfume experts who are trendsetters within the world of fragrances and amongst perfumistas to tell us what had been the bestsellers of the summer of 2007 in their boutiques.Thanks to their constant quest for new perfume creations and their vast collections of fragrances and beauty products, they influence people's tastes, but at the same time, trends and patterns emerge that through a mysterious alchemy reveal that certain products will meet the favor of the public more than others. So what happened in the summer of 2007? Any further tips for easing the crossing of the dog days (in principle from July 24th to August 24th)?
We also asked for further recommendations of summer perfumes that they do not carry and also for some celebrities' favorites, if any.We hope that you will enjoy their answers and find them a source of inspiration for your purchases and own personal quest for some very special fragrances.
