Though a constant during this time of year, rain often spurs you to rethink your wardrobe with clothes with little weight and pieces with water resistance. It is also advisable to switch up your fragrance lineup to one that is heavier and spicy. In summer, fresh, floral perfumes can stir the senses, but as the weather turns rainy, perfumes that share some ingredients with hearty, hot soups and baked goods will feel more like monsoon-weather companions. Check out this list of perfumes that are perfect for rainy days. When it comes to a date, go vanilla, but for meetings or nights out, try black pepper or ginger.

“The scent of flowers after nightfall” in Night Veils Reine de Nuit’s description is enough to make you want to hoard it.

The Swedish brand recently opened its first store in India at Jio World Drive, Mumbai.

Hermès Twilly d’Hermès Eau Ginger
The third type to join the Twilly d’Hermès tribe, this one is sweet and spicy at the same time. It starts with peony, which is fresh and energetic.
