My Favorite Fragrances for Spring/Summer

My Favorite Fragrances for Spring/Summer

.I have never been a “signature scent” kind of girl. I have always liked to have a handful (or more) of fragrances that I can reach for depending on my mood, or, the season. Over the years, my taste in fragrances and perfumes have changed. And so I have been slowly re-doing my entire perfume collection. I started in the fall./winter of last year and am continuing into the spring/summer seasons.

My current taste in perfume are lighter, slightly floral, a bit musky and earthy. Nothing too sweet or cloying. For years during the warmer months I actually hated wearing perfumes and would stick with body mists. But I have found a few really great perfumes that I have actually really enjoyed wearing that I wanted to share with you.

I was reticent about this one because although it’s a floral, it’s actually a rather heavy scent. Which is usually a no-no for me this time of year. But what can I say, I really love this fragrance. With notes of Tuberose, Jasmine and the addition of Rangoon Creeper, it is a white floral scent that lingers nicely on the skin and while when initially applied smells heavy it settles into this really sift sensual scent. It would make a great evening fragrance - though I wear mine’s during the day as well.

I first discovered this fragrance a few years ago and kept getting samples of it included in various Sephora orders. I finally bit the bullet this month and ordered a bottle. It is a truly perfect Spring/Summer fragrance. And it includes notes of my favorite flower, Gardenia. This one also has notes of tuberose (do I now have a thing for Tuberose?), along with Iris. This is a surprisingly light and uplifting perfume. It immediately makes me think of Paris in the springtime when I wear it.

Withe notes of musk (a fave), bluebell and lily of the valley this fragrance became a go-to for me immediately. The best way to describe is just…lovely. It gives you vibes of being outdoors among fresh flowers right after it’s rained. Light, fresh, and floral.

This one is a great transition fragrance. I wore it a ton during the winter months but I’ve also been wearing it during this current spring season. And it works. It’s neither too heavy or too light and if florals aren’t your thing this is a great alternative. It has notes of vanilla bean, sandalwood, musk and tangerine. It has a soft, sensual vibe to it that works day or night and isn’t over-powering or cloying or too earthy. It’s just the right amount of everything. Think “a cozy spring night with a lightweight sweater” vibes.


What are some of your go-to fragrances for the warmer months? Let me know in the comments!
