It’s good to think about your perfume choice in the summer. Your favorite scent from the colder months may come across as heavy and cloying in the warmer months. For summer, you want to think light and fresh – scents that hint to the smells of the season. You can still pick heady and exotic, but those are best for the evening. Enliven your senses with these perfumes perfect for balmy days.

4 Turquoise Summer by Escada
This irresistible fragrance from Escada was inspired by the crystal clear, turquoise ocean waters of Caicos and Turks, and whilst the color may evoke the clear saltiness of the sea, the perfume itself is jam packed with floral, fruit tones that will conjure images of summer days in fields picking luscious, juicy berries. Turquoise Summer is certain to send you into a warm daydream.
5 Aerin Rose De Grasse
Do you want the waft of summer roses to follow you about the room? Roses are feminine and sophisticated. Romantic and fresh, Aerin’s charming summer scent is made from roses hand-picked in Grasse – the center of the French perfume flower industry. Trouble is, that hand-picked aspect gives the perfume a hefty price tag. If you can afford a bottle you’ll be getting the Grasse roses complemented with violet wood, musk and ambrox.

Evoking the sharp summer freshness of a perfectly refreshing weekend mimosa, this fragrance by Calypso St. Barth elegantly captures the enticing aromas of a summer brunch with wonderful tropical notes.

7 Florabellio by Diptyque
Florabellio is the perfect perfume for anybody who has an adventurous travelling spirit during the summer months. Unlike many of the safer, more straightforward scents that attempt to define summer, Florabellio gives a different attitude, capturing the essences of coffee, fresh apples, sea fennel and even oriental sesame. Inspiration has been taken from all over the globe to create a scent that is as unlikely as it is amazing. The perfect choice for somebody who wants something a little different.
8 Clean Summer Sun
Think crisp white cotton, bare toes wriggling in the sand and a sundowner on the patio. Like a flowing gossamer scarf or top rustling in a summer breeze, this fragrance is fresh and light. Its crispness comes from the citrus, sandalwood and apples that make up the fragrance.
