8 Signature Summer Fragrances that are perfect for warm weather

As the warm weather finally arrives, we are all starting to think about beach holidays, summer staycations and soaking up the sun in our local surroundings. If you are looking for the perfect signature summer fragrances, we’ve found eight of the absolute best!

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Nuit

A luxurious amber floral fragrance that evokes Bronze Goddess’ signature feminine sensuality with luxurious warmth and sultry sophistication. This one of the best summer fragrances that we’ve discovered so far for 2022 and it’s an absolute must have when it comes to signature summer scents.

Dazzling reflections of Bergamot Essence dance across the delicate petals of Ylang Ylang – their spicy floral facets enhanced with smoldering Pepper. Bronze Goddess’ signature feminine sensuality emanates from the heart as rich and exotic Jasmine Sambac is met with the splendor of Night Blooming Orchid notes.

Together they form an exquisite moonlit bouquet – blossoming boldly in the heat of the night. Salted Coconut notes further evoke the essence of the original Bronze Goddess fragrance. Notes of magnetic Dark Tonka and creamy Cashmere Woods impart a deep, textural appeal at the base of the fragrance. Luxurious, sparkling Ambrox® sets it all aglow.

£50ml RRP £60. Available from esteelauder.co.uk boots.com and more.

AERIN Fleur de Peony is a fresh fruity floral that uplifts and delights the senses. Note by note, explore a joyful world of fresh citrus, tantalizing florals, and elusive woods. Reminiscent of the peony’s endless layers of chiffon petals, this distinctive, floral fragrance was created to bring beauty to any celebration.

Top notes: Mandarin, Pomelo, Lychee. Heart notes: Peony, Jasmine Petals, Cyclamen. Base notes: Sri Lankan Sandalwood, Ambrox, Musk. The gorgeous AERIN bottles would also add a touch of glamour to your vanity this summer, making it one of our essential summer scents.

Oui La Vie est Belle

Discover Oui La Vie est Belle, a luxury women’s fragrance encapsulating La Vie est Belle’s signature gourmand trail now wrapped in an exceptional and luminous floral bouquet. The iconic fragrance for women with an empowering message of joy. Today, Lancôme writes a new manifesto of joy by adding “OUI” (Yes) in front of its iconic name “La Vie est Belle”. It’s time to celebrate the beauty of life, say yes to every opportunity and appreciate being in the moment. This new Eau de Parfum is a luminous floral scent storifying the most precious flowers in perfumery: the rose centifolia and the Iris Pallida. 

This new chapter of La Vie est Belle keeps a zesty and colourful top of fruity notes. Bergamot sparkles under the fusing notes of Pink Pepper and combines with the Raspberry accord for an explosion of juicy freshness. In the heart, the petal-like floral bouquet, generous and faceted, is sublimated by the rich notes of centifolia rose and sunny ylang ylang. In the base, patchouli, gourmand accord and iris are used in overdose to intensify the addictive and sensual signature of La Vie est Belle.

Merchant of Venice Andalusian Soul

Luxury fragrance house The Merchant of Venice has launched a new scent within its Murano Collection line, Andalusian Soul. The fragrance is inspired by the mude, the ancient maritime trade routes of the Venetian merchants, which connected Venice to the fascinating cities of the East, enabling the exchange of raw materials, customs, and traditions.

Andalusian Soul is an audacious fragrance characterised by refined and fresh acacia, elegant and sensual vanilla, and intense amber, further enriched by touches of cistus and rum. The sublime mix of precious raw materials is made even more fascinating by balsamic accords and aromatic sage. The elegant bottle, in shades of yellow and orange, is also reminiscent of the warm atmosphere of Morocco and Southern Spain.

RRP £80 (50ml) Available at Harvey Nichols, House of Fraser and Selfridges.

Idôle Nectar Eau de Parfum

Shyamala Maisondieu, Nadège Le Garlantezec and Adriana Medina, the perfumers behind the original Idôle, collaborated once again on its latest interpretation, coming together to break with traditional perfumery codes and create a new avant-garde fragrance experience. The trio pushed creative boundaries to concoct a popcorn accord with accents of cereal and caramel. Textured and addictive, this delicious blend takes Idôle Nectar Eau de Parfum into neo-gourmand territory, a futuristic spin on the traditional gourmand classification.

Top – Idôle Nectar Eau de Parfum opens with Blooming Rose Soufflé Accord, a decadent bouquet of hand-harvested Isparta Rose, notes of Centifolia roses and Rose Absolute, which together form an enveloping rose-filled breeze. Heart –  Alluring Popcorn Accord’s notes of caramel and cereal fuse and linger on skin. Base – As Idôle Nectar Eau de Parfum dries down, Irresistible Bourbon Vanilla Infusion unleashes its addictive magnetic charm to create an exquisitely sweet yet sophisticated sensation. Futuristic while also incorporating familiar leitmotifs, Idôle Nectar Eau de Parfum explores new olfactory possibilities.

RRP: 25ml: £52.00 50ml: £80.00 100ml: £102.00. Stockist: Available on Lancome.co.uk

Floral Street electric rhubarb eau de parfum

An unexpected and bubbly vegan perfume. White florals, Island Gardenia, and powdery Sandalwood are combined with the scent of English Rhubarb and a blast of salty sea air.

Miller Harris Lumière Dorée Eau de Parfum

Summer is the perfect time to switch up your fragrance as the warmer weather lends itself to lighter, more floral scents.  Miller Harris Lumière Dorée Eau de Parfum (£115 for 100ml) is intoxicatingly fresh, balancing both sides of neroli: zingy floralcy with the intensity of the white blossom.  The luminous backdrop of soft amber and clean musks carries the freshness throughout the day making it the perfect summer fragrance.

Priced at £99 for 50ml. Available from www.millerharris.com

diptyque Ilio

diptyque pays tribute to Mediterranean nature by dedicating its entire summer collection to its inexhaustible source of inspiration. A nature that is simple and authentic and opens onto the sea: the Mediterranean landscapes where Yves Coueslant and Desmond Knox-Leet, two members of the trio who founded diptyque, loved to recharge their batteries and from 1960 onwards, brought back plenty of materials and memories for the creations and perfumes to come.

The sun lies at the very heart of Ilio, the eau de toilette of the summer collection, also available as a hair mist. Taking its name from ilios (the Greek word for “sun”), Ilio is a concentrate of summer itself, captured in a bottle – a breath of warm air cut across with addictive fragrances from flowers and fruit trees. Characterised by prickly pear – an emblematic, unconventional fruit from the Mediterranean basin – Ilio will both brighten and freshen up the summer, adding notes that blend bergamot, iris and jasmine.

Priced at £107 for 100ml. Available from: www.diptyqueparis.com
