Summer is the perfect time to buy yourself a new fragrance. We change up our wardrobes and our skincare, so it only makes sense to switch to a fresh new juice too. Plus, our sense of smell is inextricably linked to memory, so a fresh perfume for the season ahead might just save you next winter (one mist will take you right back to sun-drenched days at the beach).
Whether you're a sticky-dessert smelling kind of person, or a bright fig scent is more your jam, there's bound to be something that lights you up below. Keep scrolling to shop.
A dreamy mix of fig, jasmine, and pink pepper, the first of two scents from jewelry label Sarah and Sebastian is nothing short of incredible. Hand-blended right here in Australia by Samuel Gravan, it smells like a lazy, sun-drenched afternoon in Mykonos.
If you prefer your summer scents warm and dark, Tonka 25 will delight all of the right senses. It's damp and thick, like a summer storm, but notes of tonka and musk keep it extremely wearable.
Syrupy and feminine, the latest from Dolce and Gabbana smells like a caramel sundae. Wear it with Zimmerman and nude block heels.
Floral Street is an incredibly cool British brand that just launched in Mecca Cosmetica. Wonderland Peony is a delicate but heavenly blend of floral notes, with a splash of cedarwood to balance it out. It's sweet, vibrant, and perfect for long days in the sun.
Whilst not summery in the traditional sense, this fragrance is too special not to mention. Aptly titled, "Flash Back in New York", it's a warm, spicy smell that conjures an image of dark liquor, leather books, and a roaring fire.
As vibrant and sparkling as the yellow flacon it's housed in, Gorgeous Gardenia is a universally appealing floral scent. One mist is like inhaling a huge white bouquet—divine.
Sweet, like vanilla sugar and popcorn, this fragrance is best worn with sequins and your fanciest party shoes.
Laced with hints of vanilla and rose, this decadent scent is amazing for those who love a fragrance that draws compliments. It's loud and punchy in all the right ways. What's more, the bottle is refillable, so it's also an A+ choice for the environment.
