Fruity Fragrances for the Summer
While the British summer doesn’t always promise to be warm and sunny, you can certainly inject your own bit of summer to your days by buying a fruity, playful fragrance. After all, nothing says summer like the smell of fresh fruit, from crisp citrus to juicy berries.
Fruity fragrances previously had a bit of a reputation for being sweet and sickly, but now there are so many stylish and sophisticated scents to choose from. Here are just a few of our favourites that are perfect for the summer season.
Calvin Klein Eternity Moment for Her
Calvin Klein has an incredible reputation when it comes to fragrances, with many perfumes still being best-sellers decades later. Calvin Klein Eternity Moment was first launched in 2004, and perfectly combines fruity notes with a floral twist for a must-have summer fragrance.
Opening with notes of raspberry, melon and guava, it is a modern and sparkling perfume that follows with a floral heart of jasmine, pink peony and passionflower. With its truly feminine scent, it is a great summer scent to add to your seasonal collection.
Gucci Guilty for Her
An iconic perfume, Gucci Guilty is designed to evoke feelings of glamour and rebellion. It is a perfect evening perfume, combining fruity notes with a woody base for a long-lasting scent. For summer date nights, this is your go-to finishing touch.
Opening with a heart of mandarin and bergamot, fruity notes continue into the heart of the fragrance with peach and blackcurrant, surrounded by floral notes of jasmine and geranium. With a base of patchouli and vanilla, Gucci Guilty has a perfect balance of sweet notes without being overpowering.
Guerlain Champs Elysees for Her
A tribute to one of the most romantic cities in the world, Guerlain Champs Elysees was first launched in 1996. Housed in a glamorous bottle, it is a nod to Paris’ glamorous culture. The fragrance opens with notes of blackcurrant, melon and peach, with a heart of floral notes including peony and rose.
Reminiscent of walking down leafy avenues in the summer, this fragrance can be worn any time of day to any occasion. So, whether you’re staying in or going out, bring some Parisian summer to your day.
Acqua di Gio for Him
While fruity fragrances for men are a little different to their female counterparts, some aftershaves show off their citrus scents perfectly. Acqua di Gio is a fresh aftershave, inspired by the Mediterranean. This means a sharp, sweet opening of orange, lime, bergamot and lemon.
Harmonised with a heart of spicy, herby notes, Acqua di Gio offers a blend of sweet and salty with a woody base. Creating a classic men’s fragrance, Armani has captured the essence of summer freedom in a bottle.
Burberry Weekend for Him
For a fruity aftershave that creates the perfect accompaniment to a relaxing weekend, Burberry Weekend is the one to go for. Wear day or night and experience a burst of citrus fruits and a warming base, capturing the hazy feel of summer.
Opening with Mandarin orange, pineapple, lemon, grapefruit and melon, it is incredibly fresh, balancing tangy and sweet in ideal measures. A base of honey, sandalwood and amber is a great finish to round out the sweetness and ensure this remains a very masculine scent for the summer.
Hugo Boss Bottled Tonic
The Hugo Boss brand is arguably the epitome of sophistication and style, with a range of aftershaves to match. Hugo Boss Bottled Tonic offers a modern and invigorating fragrance that is ideal for everyday war, so make it your go-to this summer.
With an opening of citrus notes including grapefruit, orange, lemon and apple, Bottled Tonic has a spicier heart to balance it out, ensuring masculinity and intrigue. With ginger, cinnamon, cloves and vetiver, it is fresh yet bold.
