If pink sunsets, boat trips and beach parties are on the agenda this summer, it would be rude not to wear one of these scents. So which party island perfume is your vibe?
IBIZA, BALEARIC ISLANDS = MARC JACOBS DAISY LOVE EAU SO SWEET
With its turquoise waters, laid-back beach clubs and party vibes 24/7, Ibiza is the party island where you can relax and rave. The Daisy Love Eau So Sweet campaign is set on a beach, so it’s the perfect match. The new, ultra-sweet scent is a dreamy blend of daisy tree petals, jasmine milk and white raspberries in the prettiest crystallised pink bottle. Could anything be more perfect?
PHUKET, THAILAND = TOM FORD COSTA AZZURRA ACQUA
One spritz of this and you’ll be transported to Phuket, where it’s party central, with vast nightclubs and glitzy beach parties. As the sea sparkles in front of you, you’ll realise this fragrance was made for partying in Thailand (its name means blue coast in Italian). The smells? Lemon, pine needles and juniper berries. Invigorating.
MYKONOS, GREECE = THE PERFUME EDIT CITRUS FRESCO
Is partying surrounded by whitewashed houses and pink bougainvillea up your street? Then Mykonos is for you, with its world-class DJs, pool parties and luxurious beach clubs. Keep the party going with The Perfume Edit Citrus Fresco, a new unisex scent just launched as part of The Perfume Shop’s first fragrance collection. Its hints of energising lemon, lavender and rosemary will give you the boost you need all through summer.
HVAR, CROATIA = PACO RABANNE INVICTUS LEGEND IN
Our paradise includes being on a sunset boat party in Hvar, smelling of Invictus Legend. This newbie from Paco Rabanne is everything you’re looking for in a summer scent, especially when you’re partying and want to stand out from the crowd. Cue fresh, zesty notes of grapefruit and solar salty accord, the smell of hot, salty sea air. Incredible!
