The Scents of Summer

Choosing a scent is a very personal thing, so while only you can figure out what your senses will adore, here we share some light, refreshing fragrances that are perfect for summertime.

Seductively warm, but refreshingly light, Tom Ford’s new Orchid Soleil Eau de Parfum is a great alternative to Ford’s popular Black Orchid. Orchid Soleil blends the best of Black Orchid’s richness yet offers a crisp, floral fragrance that is accented with tuberose and a hint of spice. And if the scent doesn't dazzle you, the rose gold metallic glass bottle with art deco-inspired lines is sure to delight.

Bursting with lemon, apple and green absinthe, Burberry's Body Tender is an uplifting take on the iconic Burberry Body. It is a lightweight and delicate blend that combines notes of English roses, white jasmine and sandalwood, to leave a lovely light scent that lingers on your skin.

Bright, floral, fruity and fun, everything about Marc Jacobs' Daisy Eau So Fresh is synonymous with summer. This flirty scent is packed with a dose of flower power and comes in a glass bottle that is covered in daises that are soft to the touch. 

When it’s unbearably hot or you’re looking for a clean and delightful — emphasis on the light — scent, Splash Cucumber will satisfy. Consider this summer captured in a bottle, the lightweight splash is blended with “Watery Cucumber, Lotus Leaf, Crisp Bamboo, Lily of the Valley, Linden Blossom, Dutch Freesia, Frosted Musk, Blonde Woods.”

Feminine, soft and fresh, Prada's Candy Kiss mixes white cotton, orange blossom and vanilla to create a subtly sweet and irresistible summer scent. With a name like Candy Kiss, who can resist?
