From fresh florals to crisp citrus creations, these scents are the perfect picks to spray this summer. See below for Savoir Flair’s five favorite fragrances to take you from the sand to an evening soirée.
Parfums de la Bastide
Inspired by the smells and olfactory delights of the Provence region in the south of France, Parfums de la Bastide uses only the best raw, natural ingredients and shuns chemical nasties to create its stunning scents. The result? Some of the most perfect and pure perfumes you can imagine. ‘Insouciante’ is a light, sparkling scent that touches skin like a soft, summer breeze. With notes of freshly harvested rose petals, pink berries, jasmine, and a hint of black pepper, it’s light and fresh but fabulously feminine.
‘Vert de Fleur’
Oozing 70s glamour and chic sophistication, Tom Ford’s ‘Vert de Fluer’ is a floral fragrance like no other. Capturing the essence of the decadent and dreamy era, the velvety and petal-packed heart of jasmine sambac, rose, orange flower, and iris butter is brought to life with green top notes such as bergamot, basil, and neroli. At its base, meanwhile, lie warm woods, rich patchouli, and mysterious oakmoss. A spritz of this, and we guarantee you’ll be turning heads all summer.
'Pink Fresh Couture'
If you thought this product was for cleaning your bathroom, don’t be fooled – it’s actually one of the newest, freshest floral fragrances around. Sparkling top notes of zesty pink grapefruit and cassis are softened with lily of the valley, while the scent’s floral heart of refined wild rose and pink jacinth accord has a touch of sweetness thanks to a hint of pomegranate. Clear woods, ambrox, and musk form a sensual, sultry base.
'Star Magnolia Cologne'
Perhaps one of the prettiest perfumes we’ve ever seen, Jo Malone’s ‘Star Magnolia’ cologne is also one of the most sublime summer scents we’ve smelt this season. Delicate and oh-so-tantalizing, it sees white blooms of star magnolia and orange blossom blend beautifully with sparkling lemon, fiery ginger, and a sensual base of cedar and amber to make for a dreamy day or night fragrance. Make sure you get your hands on one quick as it’s limited edition, and we predict it will sell out fast!
'Tangier Vanille D'Or'
For the ultimate sultry and seductive summer’s evening scent, look no further than this olfactory offering from Aerin Lauder. Housed in a gleaming golden flacon with a stunning stone stopper, this perfume boasts both a stunning bottle and a beautiful fragrant boost. Transporting you straight to the streets of Morocco with just one spritz, it sees rich and creamy Madagscan vanilla, Bulgarian rose, and intoxicating saffron and myrrh given a crisp touch with sun-drenched Italian bergamot and black plum – all coming together to form one mysterious and addictive summer scent.
