As a beauty lover, I love to discover new products that I know will become a favorite. And I always share these finds with you!
Why You Need a Summer Perfume
A fabulous summer scent is fresh, bright, fruity, citrus, green and/or floral. And when I smell one of the fragrances below, it instantly lifts my mood!
But heat also affects how perfume behaves when we put it on. What was once subtle and lovely, can turn overpowering because of how it evaporates when the weather turns warm.
The scent notes I’ve noted above are included in the best summer perfumes for a reason. They tend to burn off faster than other muskier notes and they don’t become so pungent that you feel like you’re dragging a cloud around with you.
Fruity Floral Perfumes for Summer
These fruity scents and floral perfumes make the best summer fragrances. They'll instantly lift your mood. Not only are these great to wear on vacation but may just inspire you to book that next trip.
Vince Camuto Fiori Eau de Parfum
Fiori is a bright refreshing summery floral fragrance that was inspired by the blossoming delphiniums in Vince Camuto’s own personal garden. Fiori combines scents of pink grapefruit, ripened white nectarine, sheer iris and dewy freesia with a base of sandalwood and creamy blonde cedarwood.
I would describe Fiori as a flirty fresh feminine date night fragrance that puts you in a happy mood. I adore the bottle with the rose gold filigree cap = Stunning!
Mandarin Eau de Toilette Spray
I recently discovered the gorgeous fragrances from Zents and immediately fell in love with the fresh, spicy citrus scent of Mandarin.
It has a top note of succulent mandarin, a heart note of tropical ginger blossom and base notes of cardamom, nutmeg and saffron. I would describe this as a refreshing, bright, spicy, exotic citrus scent that totally wakes up the senses.
It’s the perfect summer fragrance to use in the morning to gorgeously jump-start your day.
Citrus Verbena Eau de Toilette
This is an invigorating, fresh, fruity summer fragrance that totally hits the spot during the warmer months.
It contains organic verbena from Corsica, lemon oil from Sicily and grapefruit extract from Italy and it totally transports you to a summer vacation in the Mediterranean.
This fragrance is fresh, clean, citrusy and perfect for when you step out of the shower and want to lightly scent your whole body.
Maison Margiela 'REPLICA' Beach Walk Travel Spray
This is the perfect summer vacation scent. And while this one is on the pricier side, it comes in a travel size making it more affordable and fantastic for taking with you on a trip. This fab rollerball has notes of Bergamot, Heliotrope and Coconut Milk.
It’s inspired by salty air and the warm sun and has a musky element to it that makes it sexy and easy to wear. It’s a great date night scent.
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Pear Blossom Eau de Toilette
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Pear Blossom is a light, fresh, flirty and floral scent. It has fresh top notes like bergamont, sparkling pear, and lemon; Middle notes of wild green tea vapor, jasmine and pear blossom and base notes of amber, white moss and musk.
This is medium-weight floral fragrance that you might wear to a summer soiree if you want to get noticed.
BYREDO Sundazed Eau de Parfum
This is a luxurious scent that is meant to evoke a mid-summer’s daydream. It’s citrus-forward with floral jasmine and a sweet muskiness that feels special and fresh.
Mandarin and lemon are the top notes of this gorgeous perfume. Neroli and jasmine are the middle notes. And the base notes of cotton candy and musk really elevate this blend. The packaging is exquisite and looks amazing on my vanity.
This is the type of fragrance that hooks you in, constantly evolves and keeps you guessing. I absolutely love it and can’t stop thinking about it.
Far Away Bali Eau de Parfum
AVON does it again with this fresh, fruity, oceanic summer vacation scent. The notes include sparkling blue lotus, pear nectar, tropical driftwood and sultry musk.
In my opinion, this is a woman’s version of man’s fragrance in the best possible way. It has the fresh, marine-like scent that I love in my man’s cologne with a sweet tropical sexy twist that makes it totally feminine. FAB!
Tips for Wearing Perfume in the Summer
- Wear less than you usually do. One spritz or a little dab will really be enough.
- Look for scents that include flowers or fruit that blooms in summer.
- Skip the vanilla and overly sweet scents. These can feel suffocating especially if the weather is humid.
- Make sure you keep your skin hydrated. Dry skin more quickly absorbs any moisture you put on it meaning that your perfume will evaporate fast and so will the fragrance.
- Oils are a little bit heavier and may stay on longer on a hot summer day.
- You can’t go wrong with citrus scents in the summer! When in doubt, search for simple, citrus fruit fragrances.
