For those aspiring towards a vaxxed, relaxed summer — maybe even a shot-girl-summer, if you will — we have the perfect roundup of perfumes that thrive in the face of heat, humidity, and long days of activity.
Since 1974, the South Pacific Ocean has been just a spritz away with Comptoir Sud Pacifique—perfect for a dreamy, vacation-forward Summer. Straight from paradise, Comptoir sud Pacifique has bottled the wind, sand, and sea in Aqua Motu for him. Transportive marine accords and light florals recreate the soft touch of the ocean breeze.
For her, Aloha Tiare spotlights the queen of tropical flowers on a bed of creamy notes. Coconut, vanilla, and musk are the hazy, sweet mélange upon which solar Tiare flower and complementary frangipani leaf and ylang-ylang take center stage.
The King of Class in the world of perfumery, Eight & Bob began with the meeting of two men in the French Riviera. Founder Albert Fouquet created Cap D’Antibes with this in mind, a where refined, aromatic essences are evenly matched with woody notes for a fragrance of balance and range, and one that will linger even through summertime heat and activity.
Fouquet's muse and love, Annicke, inspired the women’s Annicke line, and the chypre floral Annicke 3 captures refreshing citrus atop ultra-feminine white florals and a light woody base.
A brand that has captured the hearts of Billie Eilish and mere mortals alike, with Etat, there is never a dull moment or scent. Like it was made just for you, or someone like you… You or Someone Like You is an ode to Los Angeles and the energizing possibility of ‘what if?’ For a summer full of ‘what ifs’ and reduced restrictions, the uncompromising freshness and zingy green punch of You or Someone Like You is a staple in our summer fragrance wardrobes.
Lauded for its green chemistry, alcohol-free fragrances, moisturizing compositions, and clean rap, Hermetica is what’s next. Hermetica harkens back to ancient Florentine alchemy and medical texts [and] Just like Justin Bieber gets his Peaches down in Georgia and his ‘light right from the source, yeah,’ we rely on Source1, the fragrance from Hermetica to give us a light, bright and sunny scent this Summer. Considered the Prima Materia of the brand, Source1 is the beginning of everything. It is essential and sparkling. Bergamot, amber, woods… back to the basics—back to the source—never felt so good.
In his poem by the same name, surrealist Paul Éluard would have you believe that The World is Blue Like an Orange. With the message to set yourself free, Histoires de Parfums created This is Not a Blue Bottle 1/.6 with the aromatic orange as inspiration. This summer, as we enjoy newfound freedoms, consider 1/.6, with key notes mandarin, yuzu, neroli and white musks, as your olfactive comrade and confidante for all things Summer and all things free.
Made in Italy and inspired by music, with the heady and intermingling sensations of scent and sound, JusBox strikes a chord. Feel’n’Chill, made with lounge music and Ibiza nights in mind, captures cooling watermelon, green fig leaves, and white musks. Made for when you need to slow down and chill out, Feel’n’Chill is perfect for a summer of R&R.
Memo, just like memory, is all about destinations and their scent memories. Kedu, based upon the Indonesian tropics, is a unique, unisex scent with aromatic, citrusy notes of neroli and grapefruit, the distinctly nutty and earthy accords of sesame and maté, and finally the roundness of white musk. Kedu is perfect for the unafraid olfactive adventurer.
Eccentric and elegant, Vilhelm Parfumerie is a house of refined maximalism. With scents as narratives for all the senses, Vilhelm Parfumerie is a house not to be ignored—your nose and your sillage will be better for it. For the summer we must discuss bestseller Mango Skin. As if your epidermis were traded with that of the tart, juicy and sweet fruit, Mango Skin begins with a punch of mango, only to be mellowed out by other key notes of wild orris and pink sugar.
