Five Must-Have Summer Scents

Must-Have Summer Scents

Hit refresh on your scent wardrobe this season with notes of sea salt, lemon, cherry or rose.

Some people believe in having a signature scent, while others rotate through any number of favourite fragrances so their nose never tires of one bouquet of notes. To each their own! But with summer upon us, perhaps it’s worth a refresh for your olfactory senses?

Each of the following eaus will evoke sun-drenched memories while you work hard and play hard to create new ones.

Sun & Sand
This vacation in a bottle features notes of jasmine, sea spray and honeysuckle.

Bobbi Brown Beach Fragrance, $88

Glow On
A cheeky new twist on the Valentina collection of scents, Valentina Blush mischievously pairs orange blossom with praline, and an added hit of cherry as a top note.

Valentino Valentina Blush Eau de Parfum, $132

Get Floral
For someone who still prefers a dark summer romance, the latest from the Nirvana line of juices comes Rose, a slightly lighter version of the previous three iterations, combining dark rose, vetiver and geranium for a confident and sexy spritz.

Elizabeth & James Nirvana Rose Eau De Parfum, $138

Turkish Delight
An enchanting eau filled with early summer’s roses (think Turkish and Bulgarian varieties), neroli and mandarin add a grounded hit of green to this airy scent to evokes memories of the most splendid gardens in bloom.

Prada Les Infusions de Prada Rose, $175

Natural Wonder
Wonder Woman is arguably the biggest smash flick of the summer. Get in on the action with a revamped look at Jean Paul Gaultier’s classic femme fragrance, this time containing a spicy note of ginger, along with the sweetness of sugarcane, vanilla and lemon.
