Check out some of our favourite perfumes and aftershaves that are perfect for the summer season, whether you’re spending in the UK or not!
The best summer perfumes
Summery perfumes are a great mood-booster, especially if you are unable to jet off to your favourite destinations. Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers encapsulates this perfectly, with a fruity-floral scent for every occasion. It has been a firm favourite since its release back in 1993, and for good reason.
Created with bergamot, melon and peach, Sunflowers opens into a heart of jasmine and cyclamen for a delicate yet memorable smell. The fragrance finishes on a warming, smooth base of sandalwood. Working together, these notes result in a radiant and sparkling perfume that was made for summer.
For a romantic, feminine perfume that suits the summer season perfectly, look no further than Calvin Klein Eternity Moment. Created with floral notes combined with a fruity twist and woody base, this balanced fragrance has something for everyone to enjoy.
Opening with lychee, guava and raspberry, Eternity Moment has a heart of passionflower, Chinese pink peony and jasmine. It has a base of sandalwood, cashmere wood and Brazilian rosewood, making it a must-have for the upcoming season with a fresh and captivating scent.
To indulge yourself in something special, Gucci Bloom is a must-have for your summer perfume collection. Launched in 2017, it has a stunning rich, white floral scent that instantly transports you to a blossoming garden, conjuring an image of a flower-filled summer’s day.
Jasmine and tuberose come together with Rangoon creeper, an ingredient used for the first time in perfumery, to create a powdery, floral scent. Delicate yet powerful, Gucci Bloom unfolds into an exclusive fragrance that is an essential for a seasonal upgrade.
The best summer aftershaves
The ultimate men’s aftershaves for summer should be fresh and invigorating, created with unique compositions. Mont Blanc Legend Spirit does this perfectly, with a timeless yet modern scent.
Opening with refreshing notes of pink peppercorn, grapefruit and bergamot, the aftershave moves to an aquatic heart with lavender and cardamom for an energising scent that is perfect for a summer’s day. With a base of sandalwood, cashmere and musk, it is elegant yet fresh, making it wearable for any occasion.
You simply can’t talk about aftershaves without mentioning Hugo Boss; a timeless, masculine brand that gets it right every time. Hugo Boss Bottled Unlimited is designed to give you a boost, created with an inviting scent created from citrus, green and woody notes.
Opening with notes of mint, grapefruit and violet leaf, the aftershave moves into a heart of pineapple, cinnamon and rose for a unique combination. Finishing on a base of sandalwood and white musk, this is an incredibly wearable aftershave that will last you all summer.
The summer often conjures up the same image for many people, and it usually includes the Mediterranean. Versace Pour Homme blends all the right ingredients to conjure up that very image, with an exotic fragrance created in a unique composition of notes.
Versace Pour Homme opens with the recognisable citrus scents of bergamot, lemon and neroli before moving into a heart of geranium and sage. The fragrance finishes on a base of cedarwood, oud, amber and musk for a confident scent that will last all day and into the summer night.
