It’s not too late to experience summer’s latest fragrances that evoke the relaxed escapism of the kick-back season. Below are our favorite olfactory delights with links to buy so you can feel summer—all year long.
“Turquoise Summer” by Escada is a limited-edition scent— you can call it a joyful cocktail of berries. Notes of strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant remind one of enjoying summer’s bounty of produce. The sleek turquoise bottle is filled with Escada’s 23rd fragrance. The silk butterfly sails over the cap and makes for playful presentation on a dresser. If you love tutti-frutti you’ll love this! Eau de Toilette, 50ML $60 Buy here.
Men’s fragrances are usually heavy on the musk and sandalwood but Lacoste’s “Jaune” has a zingy punch but remains light and fresh. Jaune translates to yellow in French— thus the sunny colored bottle and lemony fragrance profile. But although its a pop of bright in more ways than one, its not too overpowering. We recommend that women give it a whiff. 3.3 oz. of “Eau de Lacoste” will set you back, $70. Buy it here.
Hermes unisex fragrance “Le Jardin De Monsieur Li” launched in April. The scent’s top notes are a melange of jasmine, kumquat and grassy notes. The bottle’s gold liquid fragrance casts a pale yellow tint that works nicely with the sleek bottle design— you’ll love to show it off on a dressing table or shelf. Although it is meant for men and women the scent has a distinctly masculine aroma. 3.3 oz will run you $135. Buy it here.
Bond No.9’s “Sag Harbor” fragrance takes you to the Hamptons if only with one of your senses. It’s notes mimic the fresh salty air that gently wafts over you as you take a morning walk on the beach. It also comes in a candle which will envelope your home with the light fragrance. Shelter Island, Coney Island and Fire Island are other summery destination based scents from this prolific perfumery. Eau de Parfum 3.3 oz is $275 at Saks Fifth Avenue. Buy here.
Distillery General’s Artisanal small batch fragrance “Sea Salt” smells just like a spray of the sea splashed on you as a wave hits the shore. Its fresh oceanic floral beginnings with top notes of Italian bergamot and ocean salt are just the beginning. Peach, melon and mandarin are part of this super light scent. The vintage bottle has an apothecary feel with a burnished cap and burlap tie. Spray-it for a beach-y feel all year long. 1.7 oz $25 Buy it here.
