With the changing of the seasons comes the swapping of our fragrances, and as summer is just around the corner (June 21, to be exact), that means notes of neroli, citrus, and coconut will soon take over our senses. In preparation for the sunny days and weekend getaways that will soon be upon us, we’ve compiled the summer scents you should add to your warm-weather beauty routine.
Whether you prefer oils or perfumes or an all-in-one scented moisturizer, you can acquire the best scents of summer in just about any formula. Looking for a sultry summer scent? Tom Ford’s shimmery body oil will illuminate your soon-to-be-tan skin while giving off notes of white florals and amber. Oil not your thing? Try Replica’s orange and ylang-ylang perfume with just a hint of musk. Or, better yet, opt for a sea salt spray that adds texture to your hair while simultaneously transporting you to the Italian Riviera with notes of citrus and almond.

The perfect fragrance for coconut purists. This perfume is coconut at its finest, with no notes of citrus or musk to take away from the summer scent that we all know and love.
With Memorial Day weekend around the corner, we have one thing on our minds: summer—which inevitably has us thinking about SPF. But not just any sunscreen: We’re talking a formula that’s lightweight, non-greasy, and won’t clog pores. Something like Hawaiian Tropic’s hibiscus- and coconut-scented Island Sport Sunscreen, which will instantly transport you to a tropical island and also protect you from damaging UV rays.
This tiny little bottle houses a candlelit glow as well as the most sensual summer scent on our list: a mix of white florals, amber, and sandalwood.
