11 Perfumes That Smell Like Summer

When it comes to finding the perfect summertime fragrance, choose a scent that's going to bring a smile to your face and leave you with a sense of summer ease. Whether it's fresh and fruity or warm and earthy, sweet smelling perfumes are a perfect way to get yourself ready for bright sunny days and warm summer nights.

I love how personal fragrances can be. A light, citrus scent may take you back to childhood lemonade stand, while a earthy, coconut smell may remind you gritty sand and sunscreen. No matter what you choose, pick a fragrance that reminds you of your favorite summer memories. Each whiff will take you back to a time that meant the most to you.

Personally, I love reaching for perfumes that are a colorful mixture of scents. For instance, my current fragrance obsession, Vince Camuto Bella, features a gorgeous mix of jasmine and amber. This pairing of floral and earthy tones reminds me of sunny days and grass stains. I absolutely love it. Wondering what summertime fragrances you should be reaching for?
