5 Summer Scents That Won't Make You Smell Like A Fruity Drink

July 12, 2010 by carla

We love the idea of changing your perfume to fit the season – it’s such an easy way to update your “look” – but so many summer fragrances are overwhelmingly sweet, and smell more like pina coladas than something we would want to wear. We’ve been on the hunt for delicious and sexy scents that don’t resemble a fruity beach-side drink in any way, and found some new favorites. Enjoy:

Bobbi Brown’s Beach ($55) is fresh and perfectly summery. It reminds us of sea spray and that natural smell of coming in from a long, sunny day at the beach.

This Gucci Flora Eau de Parfum spray ($80) is the ultimate summer nighttime fragrance – perfect whether you’re at a beach bonfire or crowded club. Plus the floral notes are subtle, not overwhelming.

Ralph

For a sweet floral scent that’s not too sweet or too floral, Ralph by Ralph Lauren ($50) is perfect. It’s an oldie, but a goody, with notes of green apple, freesia, pink magnolia and musk.

We love mix and matching Jo Malone’s fragrances ($55) and created the perfect summer scent with the Pomegranate Noir and the Sweet Lime and Cedar. The spicy, woody Pomegranate Noir has notes of raspberry, patchouli and pink pepper which are tempered by the Sweet Lime and Cedar’s zesty, aromatic blend. Trust us on this one.
