When you think of summer, you probably think of trips abroad, warm evenings sat in the garden, beach days, weddings, and pool parties. So when it comes to choosing a summer fragrance, keep your favourite summer memories in mind. The best summer perfumes will transport you straight to the beach or to a day spent sunbathing. Citrus notes, plus coconut, musk, and warm florals like jasmine, magnolia, and rose are popular favourites in summer fragrances – they’re the perfect accompaniment to sunny days and hot weather, since they’re so fresh, vibrant, and uplifting.

2. Maison Matine Bain de Midi
Inspired by the nostalgia of summer and the warmth of a day spent at the beach, this is the kind of scent you’ll want to pack in your holiday bag.

11. Estee Lauder Beautiful Magnolia
Floral fragrances are typically more associated with spring rather than summer, but this features notes of summer-blooming flowers like magnolia, lotus, gardenia, and rose. Spritz it and you’ll feel like you’re spending a warm summer’s evening relaxing in a flower garden.
