Scents of Summer – The Season's Hottest Fragrances

With the Memorial Day weekend behind us, it’s time to kick it in high gear and get ready for the start of summer.  As we transition our closets to prepare for the heat, replacing our winter clothes with our fave shorts, tees and tanks we also take the time to update our fragrance wardrobe with our favorite seasonal scents.  You can’t go wrong when you spritz on any of our top picks.  One whiff and you’ll be instantly transported to the beach.
  

ck-one-summer.jpgCalvin Klein ck one summer
Watery, green and slightly earthy this light unisex scent is perfect for daytime when you want a hint of fragrance that isn’t too overpowering. $44, sephora.com

bbw-coconut-lime-verbena-edt.jpgBath and Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena EDT
Lime, lemon verbena and coconut water combine to create the quintessential summertime scent from Bath & Body Works.  Every time we sniff Coconut Lime Verbena we have an immediate need lay by the pool, sipping a fruity drink, slathered in suntan lotion. $26.50, bathandbodyworks.com

sula-sun-kissed-citrus.jpgSula by Susanne Lang Sun-kissed Citrus EDP
We were all swoony for Sun-kissed Citrus from the moment we sprayed it on our skin.  It’s a tart blend of grapefruit, lemon, orange and tangerine with a slight herbiness that smells sophisticated, not at all fruit salad. $32, apothica.com

escada-ocean-lounge.jpgEscada Ocean Lounge EDT Spray
If you gravitate towards sweet scents look no further than Ocean Lounge.  This year Escada eschewed their usual tropical summer fragrance and went for pure, yummy strawberry with a fizzy edge and warm vanilla base.  It’s utterly delicious like a strawberry shortcake ice cream bar. $37.50, fragrancenet.com

thymes-coco-monoi.jpgThymes Coco Monoi EDP
There’s something about this mixture of floral, citrus, vanilla and woods that’s intoxicating and addictive.  We seriously can’t get enough of it.  It dries down a bit powdery and fresh but with an underlying warmth that feels tropical and clean.  $76, neimanmarcus.com
