With beer gardens back open, lockdown easing and a random mini heatwave in April, it feels like summer has come early here in the UK. While we can’t go abroad just yet, it hasn’t stopped us manifesting with summer 2021 perfumes that transport us to tropical destinations.
Nothing takes you back to a summer holiday quite like a fragrance does. Whether it’s a limited summer edition like the new CK One Summer or Pepe Jeans Cocktail (so dreamy) or a fragrance with citrus and aquatic notes, refreshing summer scents are powerful in how they invoke memories and uplift your mood.
So, with summer firmly on our minds, we thought we’d showcase some fragrances we believe are the epitome of summer holiday vibes to take you on an olfactory journey to the places you love! Follow us to discover the summer 2021 perfumes you need…
Fragrance doesn’t have to always come from an Eau De Parfum or Eau De Toilette (what’s the difference? Let us explain) when your hair can carry it for you. The chic Givenchy L’interdit Hair Mist spritzes white notes of Orange Blossom, Jasmine and Tuberose, refreshing your vibe with its uplifting scent, while its lightweight texture leaves hair shiny, soft and radiant.
Michael Kors Turquoise is a naturally fresh scent will transport you to Ibiza before you can say Café Del Mar. Top notes of Water Lily, Cucumber and Lime open to reveal a smooth and opulent blend of Jasmine and Wild Orchid florals, which are sunkissed by a sensual ‘Fleur de Sel’ accord. If you want bright, breezy and versatile, Turquoise is the one for you.
‘The life of the beautiful sun crystal’ is what Lancôme want us to have this summer, so let’s take it. La Vie Est Belle Soleil Cristal bursts with an opening of sparkling Mandarin from its suitably iridescent bottle, before enlightening your aura with its warm golden heart and delicious base of Madagascar Vanilla and Patchouli.
IKON 910 is a bold unisex fragrance fit for a sensual summer’s day. Pink Pepper leads the way for this spirited scent, where earthy natural notes reach new levels of vibrancy thanks to citrus touches. Musk and Moss lay an enticing foundation for the alluring and fresh top notes of Bergamot, Lemon, Clary Sage and Kaffir Lime Leaf to reach new exciting potential.
For a classic summer moment, turn to the Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess EDP. Its sensuous, sun-soaked blend of Coconut, Tiare Flower and Vanilla create the most addictive olfactory experience reminiscent of endless, hedonistic summer days. Its powdery floral heart balances the sweet invitation of Coconut before settling into the amber-woody base. Exquisite.
