Best Perfumes For Summer
1. Jo Malone Jo Loves Mandrine
It comes as no surprise that Jo Malone finds its place in this list. They have some of the best perfumes available in the market. This cologne has a citrus fragrance that will instantly remind you of the warmth of somewhere lovely.
2. Derek Lam 10 Crosby Silent St. Eau De Parfum
Derek Lam had a very specific image in mind. He pictured a girl walking down the street, looking ever so confident and in her element. He wanted to capture that feeling in a perfume, which is exactly what this perfume is. It has a floral and fresh scent that has a hint of pure musk. Perfect for a day out in the sun!
3. Atelier Cologne Clementine California Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume
This screams summer in the warm beaches of California. When you spray it, the first thing that will hit you is the citrusy burst along with hints of juniper and just the slight tanginess of mandarin. It is also blended with other explosive scents like star anise, sandalwood, and pepper. It’s the tropical vibe of this cologne that men and women will love since it’s gender neutral.
4. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Floral Shock Eau De Parfum
This one is for all the coffee lovers. Nothing better to jolt you awake than a strong cup of coffee right? Now imagine that coffee in the form of perfume. A shot of espresso is what everyone needs! The iconic scent of coffee beautifully blended with vanilla and hints of orange blossom and gardenias is what makes it so summery.
Think sultry summer nights. That’s exactly what you get in this bottle. The perfect blend of floral with the seductiveness of amber, this falls nothing short of creating that signature magnetic scent by Tom Ford that everyone ‘oh-so’ love so much!
6. Christian Dior Poison Girl Eau de Parfum
This list would not be complete till it has something by Dior, and here it is! When you get a whiff of this amazing scent, you’ll be entranced, as it personifies a confident bold and sexy woman who knows what she wants. In this perfume, you’d find traces of Venezuelan Tonka Bean with bursts of citrus orange combined with the elegance of Grasse Rose.
7. CK One Summer
When I think of summers, I think of hammock on the beach, a good book and sipping on a nice cold mojito. You may not be able to sip on a mojito always, but you can definitely embrace its scent in this lovely perfume. This fragrance is enough to transport you to a fabulous resort and if that’s not enough, wait till you get a whiff of lime mojito, ripe guavas and the coolness of cedarwood as soon you open the bottle.
8. Caudalie, Rose de Vigne
Picture a garden of roses in the early morning. They’re surrounded by other shrubbery and if you look further ahead, you can see the forest. Now, imagine all of this in a bottle, because that’s exactly what this perfume is.
9. Liz Earle, Botanical Essence
With hints of pink pepper, bergamot, the spice of cinnamon and cypriol combined with the enchanting fragrances of damask rose and sandalwood, this perfume has the perfect elements of elegance coupled with a fresh appeal. It’s a must try if you like spices and the earthy feel that it comes with.
10. Marc Jacobs, Daisy
If you’re into fruity, floral and sweet scents, then this one is for you. It’s a twist on the original Daisy by Marc Jacobs. The first thing you’d notice when you spray this is the burst of pomelo. You would also get a whiff of bright peonies and rustic cedar wood. All of this in a pretty pink bottle with the signature daisies on the cap.
11. Jo Malone Nashi Blossom
As the name suggests, this lovely fragrance by Jo Malone contains the beautiful scent of the Nashi blossoms in its heart. However, it’s probably not the first thing you’d smell when you open this bottle. At first, the citrus jumps right at you, followed by the Nashi blossoms and finally the subtle hints of white musk. All in all, a perfect cologne for the summers.
12. Marc Jacobs Rain
This scent from Marc Jacobs will remind you of the showers in the warm summer months. It’s a new take on the original Marc Jacobs collection in order to capture the essence of summer. If you like cool fresh aqua fragrances, then you should definitely give this one a spritz.
13. Gucci Flora Garden Collection
In order to encapture the essence of the flowers at their full bloom, Gucci has created a beautiful floral scent with the fragrance of magnolias at its heart. You will also smell notes of zesty citrus, captivating sandalwood with freesia and an accord of warm chocolate towards the end.
14. Victoria’s Secret Love Is Heavenly
As always, Victoria’s Secret always has something sexy in store, and this perfume is no exception. If the packaging doesn’t encourage you to buy the product, then I assure you that the scent will. You’ll be delighted to find a beautiful blend of florals with hints of sweet musk.
15. Dior La Colle Noire
The La Colle Noire rests its base in the signature flower, Rose de Mai as it pays homage to the origin of this flower in the land of Grasse. Christian Dior purchased the Chateau de la Colle Noire in 1951 and had always loved the serenity and peace that he felt from the garden where the Rose de Mai flowers grew. It’s no wonder that this signature scent made it to this perfume.
