In warmer cli­mates like Malaysia, re­fresh­ing scents wear beau­ti­fully with­out over­pow­er­ing the senses. What ex­actly is a re­fresh­ing scent? “Univer­sally, that trans­lates to cit­rus,” says Olivier Cresp, the mas­ter per­fumer at fra­grance com­pany Fir­menich. But if you think that this also means “fleet­ing”, don’t worry. The unique com­bi­na­tion of cit­rus with other notes (like woods, musks and flow­ers) in th­ese picks am­pli­fies their longevity in a sub­tle, el­e­gant man­ner.

Clock­wise from top: Eau de Givenchy (price un­avail­able) con­tains or­ange and musk notes. Ralph Lau­ren Ro­mance Rosé ( RM382) blends berg­amot with patchouli. Louis Vuit­ton Le Jour Se Lève ( RM990) has man­darin and jas­mine. Vince Ca­muto Div­ina EDP ( RM369, per­fume­store. my) pairs grape­fruit and san­dal­wood.
