best summer fragrancesHere comes summer! That season when it’s so easy to look pulled together: sundress, sandals, bronzer, ponytail, and you’re done!

Besides a great bag and necklace, I think that perfume is one of the most important summer accessories, so I thought I would share a weeks’ worth of my favorites with you.

Tip: I keep my best summer fragrance in the fridge so it is cool and refreshing! It’s supposed to last longer that way too!

Ralph Lauren Summer Blossom

So many flowery fragrances can be, you know, TOO flowery! I love this because it’s so light! Smell like a garden party!

Jo Malone Lime, Basil & Mandarin

No. But this lime basil and mandarin cologne is one of my favorites. And they had me at the name! Doesn’t it sound like it would be a delicious summery cocktail?

D&G Light Blue 

This name just screams summer to me and part of the reason is I love the magazine ad with the model in the most amazing white swim suit. Of course, anything named Light Blue is going to sweep you away to the beach in your mind, am I right?

Take me out to the ballgame! I love the pink pinstripes on the bottle and the scent is a summer-savvy fruit salad with a hint of musk and vanilla. You will definitely get to first base wearing this one!

Valentina by Valentino

I like the perfume but I LOVE the bottle! It is a light, delicate fragrance, not overpowering or cloying.

Another LOVE bottle. Of course Jimmy Choo makes an amazing bottle! I just wish I could wear this bottle as a bauble around my neck, but it smells really yummy too!

And to wrap up, here’s my FAVORITE perfume for summer. It is limited edition so buy it now!

Guess what it smells like? Yep! Coconutty yumminess, thanks to coconut milk, but with some hints of sandalwood, vanilla, amber, lemon and more. Get some while you can!

Oooh love the tip on Jo Malone’s Lime Basil and Mandarin! Really adore her line. My summer faves are Philosophy Pure Grace and Benefit’s Maybe Baby.
