One way to capture the essence of summer in the bathroom is to introduce bathroom scents. During this season, aromas should be invigorating, and promote a good sense of well-being. Your choices should also set you up for a great day ahead while helping you capture the best of those lighter nights. The Bathroom Showroom suggests several summer scents for bathroom inspiration for this fabulous season.

Recreating the Scents of Summer

Summer scents are zesty, citrusy, fizzy, and fresh. They’re floral and infused with delicate aromas. Soft and inspired by nature, they can be relaxed and calm. Yet, fruity and tropical, they can be vibrant and reminiscent.
Think newly washed linen and flowers that emit powerful scents as you pass by. Think warm summer breezes, and that fresh air after a good rainstorm. 
Whether boasting energy, lifting the spirits, or bringing balance, summer scents promote happiness while aiding sleep after long busy summer days.
