While there are some fragrances that wear well year round, there are those few scents that are distinctly for a specific season. And when it comes to summer - I think fresh, fruity, floral, citrus, tropical notes. Basically anything that reminds me of being on vacation or at a beach is how I would prefer to smell from May - September. Here are a few that are worth checking out:
1. Laura Mercier Verbena Infusion - While I live for a lemon or citrus scent, I was pleasantly surprised when this did not smell as strongly verbena-like as I thought. I had anticipated tart and citrus notes, but instead this fragrance is reminscent of the most refreshing shower you could ever take. It has a fresh, vibrant and clean scent with notes of green citrus, spearmint and cedarwood. This is a quintessential summer fragrance because it's easy to wear, does not change in the heat and does not overpower those around you.
2. Escada Turquoise Summer - Every year Escada makes a limited edition fragrance that has a sweet and fruity, tropical vibe. I look out for it every year because I adore those types of scents, and look out for the newest one from Escada every single year. This one does not disappoint and has notes of Raspberries, Blackcurrant and Violet. It's basically a vacation in a bottle. Put a little umbrella in your drink and sit around in a caftan if you feel so inclined. I am not here to judge.
3. mark Buenos Aires Vibe - The name and bottle should already get you in the mood for this fragrance. Like the Escada one mentioned above, it's tropical and vibrant, but has a much warmer feel with the addition of musk. Along with notes of passionfruit and violet, this is a nice balance of both fruity and rich and wears well for both day and evening. And an added bonus - the ridiculously affordable price point!
