If you live in the UK, likelihood is that you live for the summer, or in many cases, really, really look forward to it — even if we are going to spend the majority of it indoors this year. And being beauty lovers, we also live for the summer because it means we get to whip out our favourite summer perfumes to accompany a season of sipping on Aperol spritzes.
Along with switching up our makeup and digging the fake tan out from our bottom drawer, the new season is also an excuse to change up our everyday fragrance.
New and old, brands have treated us to a variety of scents for every summer occasion. If you prefer nothing more than a sweet floral scent, there are plenty to choose from, and if you’re drawn to citrus smells, we have lots of those, too. And these fragrances don’t just smell good, they look just as good. Because let’s be honest, we all want our perfumes to line up beautifully in our bathroom or bedroom. In more ways than one, these fragrances will perk you up, and in the words of Roald Dahl, will “shine out of your face like sunbeams.”
If you’re looking for a new summer fragrance for the upcoming warmer months, we asked eight POPSUGAR editors what their favourites are, so you can pluck some inspiration for your own collection to spritz all summer long — come rain or shine, indoors or outdoors.
