Sweet, sweet summertime. The sunshine season is finally upon us and in celebration, we’ve gathered a few of our favorite summer scents that truly mark the warmer months. From Gucci Bloom to Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Toit, you’ll want to spritz these 10 scents all summer long.


Candy Sugar Pop


This powdery floral fragrance by Prada is more crisp than sweet, comprising an unexpected scent. Both smooth and sparkling, key notes include green bergamot, apple, and vanilla. Plus, the beautiful pastel-colored bottle adds style to any countertop.


Coco Mademoiselle


A Chanel classic, Coco Mademoiselle speaks to the irrepressible spirit of the young Coco Chanel. Sexy and fresh, this luxurious scent highlights notes of bergamot, orange, jasmine, rose, patchouli, vetiver, white musks, and vanilla. P.S. If you like the perfume, we highly recommend trying the Coco Mademoiselle Moisturizing Body Lotion; it’s equally as amazing.


Gucci Bloom


Jasmine and tuberose really shine in this scent, which is familiar but totally unique in the latest iteration of Gucci Bloom. It’s really light but certainly a statement perfume, akin to walking through a garden in full bloom on a hot summer day.


Maison Margiela ‘Replica’ By the Fireplace


A lemon base with fresh notes of vanilla and musk make this citrus scent as close as you can get to the smell of having a basket of fresh lemons tucked under your arm as you peruse the farmer’s market.


Tom Ford White Suede Eau de Parfum


A warm and spicy blend of musk, velvety rose, and warm amber give this Tom Ford fragrance its powerfully addictive pull. Simply spray once or twice on desired areas, and let the fragrance develop over time.


Giorgio Armani Si


A tribute to modern femininity, Sì by Giorgio Armani is a fragrance fav throughout all seasons. Deep blackcurrant nectar softly lessens to airy florals, with an added lightness from the musky blond wood base.


Malin + Goetz Stem Eau de Parfum


For anyone who appreciates the smell of a lush garden, this Malin + Goetz fragrance is just for you. Top notes include mandarin leaves, wild freesia greens, and hyacinth florets.


Beach by Bobbi Brown


The name says it all: Beach is a perfect summer scent formulated with a blend of jasmine, seas spray, and mandarin.


Flowerbomb Midnight


A scent made for summer nights, this sexy perfume by Viktor&Rolf is a floral fave. Formulated using notes of black currant, night blooming jasmine, and musk, Flowerbomb Midnight creates the most mysterious floral sensation.


Un Jardin Sur Le Toit


This fragrance has notes that take you right back to summer mornings when the scent of fresh cut grass drifted into your bedroom window, but with a decidedly grown-up spin. It’s a fresh, green, slightly fruity fragrance with just a hint of rose and sweetness.

Rollerball + Travel Perfumes

If you truly are looking for a seasonal scent, we recommend opting for one of the rollerball or travel-sized options shown below. That way, you can make the most of it before fall is upon us in a few months. Bonus: they’re great for sticking in your bag for a weekend getaway!

Gucci’s Bloom is my go-to and signature scent :’)

The scent that, to me, encapsulates summer in a bottle is the one from the Huile Prodigieuse by Nuxe. It smells just like the French seaside in the summer time.
