Summer Fragrance Guide

Some women have a signature fragrance that they wear year-round and you recognize them by their scent. I, however, change my fragrance with the time of year. In the summer I look for a light scent that isn’t too strong and has an airy feel to it. In my search for a summer fragrance I decided to share my top five picks of the best fragrances for summer.

Burberry Summer – A light, crisp and clean scent with a citrusy scent of orange, lily and green leaf.  $65

Philosphy Summer Grace – If you are a fan of Philosophy Grace, then you may want to switch to this one for the summer. While it still has the signature aroma, it has lighter floral notes which makes the scent a little lighter. $42

Tocca Eau de parfun Giulietta – Scents of green apple, tulips and amber waft from the sweet scent. If that does not get you, then the fact that this fragrance is based on a love story between Italian director Frederico Fellini and his romance with his actress wife Guilletta Masina will. $68
