Summer hits differently than any other season, don’t you think? The longer days feel more special; the warmer weather lifts our spirits, and who could say no to an alfresco dinner date or two in the sunshine? Here at The Perfume Shop, we love when summer rolls around as the light, bright fragrances effortlessly evoke images of sun-soaked happy times! And this season, we’re sharing that feeling with you with our top 10 summer fragrances – seaside strolls, summer love, and poolside cocktails here we come!
Not many things beat that ‘out of office’ feeling. Whether your idea of the perfect summer holiday is lazing on a beach with a book or hitting the hiking trails in search of adventure, taking a fragrance that you can associate those memories with means you can enjoy that holiday feeling long after you’re home! Estee Lauder’s Golden Goddess has summer vibes written all over it with mandarin, coconut, and frangipani notes, whilst Acqua Di Gio by Armani is as refreshing as a sea breeze on a hot summer day! And with just one spray of Be Delicious Coconut About Summer by DKNY, you’ll want to pack your bags and head to the nearest sunny shore ASAP!
A Summer Breeze
Summer was made for picnics in the park, lazy strolls along the seafront and BBQs with loved ones, but when the sun has its hat on – there’s no denying a light, a cool breeze is more than welcome from time to time! Enjoy that blissful feeling with a spritz or two of a scent like Splash Rain by Marc Jacobs or the classic Cool Water by Davidoff. Both aquatic fragrances take inspiration from crisp, fresh water and bottle up the essence of summer!
A Summer Romance
Sunset strolls hand in hand along the beach, dinner dates with a cocktail or two and making memories of a lifetime – ah, summer romances are like no other! That energetic, sensual, and uplifting feeling is captured perfectly in the Light Blue and Light Blue Pour Homme by Dolce & Gabbana. Crisp notes perfectly combine with undertones of sensuality that offer a sunny, sexy and utterly memorable moment for both wearers. If you want to experience everything summer has to offer in perfume, then these should both make your list!
Delectable, refreshing and utterly divine – the aroma and taste of summer fruits are just so much better when experienced when the sun is shining, and the weather is warm! For a vibrant and vivid take on your summer experience, enjoy the juicy notes of mango and sensuality of vanilla in the exotic aromas of Sexy Rio De Janeiro by Michael Kors. While, with Polo Deep Blue by Ralph Lauren, you’ll experience a more intense and mysterious take on summer fruits with notes of Hawaiian green mango and grapefruit oil perfectly intertwined with crystal fizz, patchouli and a deep ocean accord.
Light & Bright Moments
For a softer take on summer scents, have you thought about body mists? Their lower concentration of essential oils means they’re ideal for everyday wear, throwing in your beach bag, for a poolside top-up, or even to keep you feeling fresh on a camping trip. They’re available in a range of fruity, flirtatious, and fun scents from bestselling brands.
We think they’re a true summer staple, and you can find out more about them here in our dedicated body mist blog post.
