Sexy Summer Scents

by Meredith Davis for BlushBox Beauty Guide

A change in seasons calls for a change in scents. Just like your wardrobe, you should adjust your aroma to match the season, and now that summer has arrived, the heat requires a much lighter fragrance. Skip the heavy perfumes and go straight for the fresh, fruity and floral scents.

A new fragrance can be alluring. After all, the power of aroma can influence sexual attraction, so why not woo your man with a new sensuous summer scent? Fragrance says a lot about your personality, so whether you’re more fun & flirty or soft & feminine, there is a bevvy of new perfumes to choose from. We hand-selected a few of our top picks for summer, including one of our favorite new scents that was recently featured in the spring BlushBox.

Top Picks for Summer Perfume

Oh, Lola! by Marc Jacobs

Flirtatious, charming, and sparkling with lighthearted personality, this fragrance leaves you flirting with your senses. It bursts open with a bright and whimsical effervescence that is a perfect addition to your summer scents. At the heart of the fragrance is the playful scent of peony. As the scent dries down, a flirty and elegant trail gives you an unexpected touch of fun that makes you smile.


Blushed by Ruddy Water

One of my latest obsessions and featured in the most recent Spring Fling BlushBox, this luxurious fragrance is both sweet and sexy with a delicate slice of romance. Featuring notes of bright red currant and rich vanilla wrapped around subtle sweet lemon, slightly spicy ginger, and kissed with a hint of sugar. Staying true to its name, this alluring fragrance will turn heads and have you blushing throughout the day.


L’Eau de Chloé by Chloé

L’Eau de Chloé is elegance injected with a modern twist. It’s an utterly innate sense of chic with the fresh feeling of springtime pastels, light dresses, and rose petals. This smooth and comfortable fragrance is a totally addictive floral mix. Made with 22 percent natural rose water, the scent is fresh, carefree, and feminine with a delicate and lively mix of rose, floral notes, and green outdoorsy notes.


Acqua di Gioia by Giorgio Armani

Off the coast of Italy, the island of Pantelleria is a place where the deep blue-green Mediterranean Sea meets the sun and earth, creating a sense of happiness, serenity, and optimism. This fresh, aquatic fragrance, whose name means, “water of joy,” captures the simple happiness one can experience at this extraordinary destination. The fragrance’s top notes rise like a soft sea breeze, bringing forward a sensual blend of cool mint, warm brown sugar, and the zest of Italian lemon.


Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana

Light Blue is a stunning perfume, overwhelming and irresistible like the joy of living. This scent is surprising and colored bringing out the liveliness of Sicilian citron, the happiness of Granny Smith apple and the spontaneity of bluebells. Also feminine and resolute with the intensity of jasmine, the freshness of bamboo and the charm of white rose. A fresh, crisp scent, this perfume is perfect for summer.


Poppy by Coach

A youthful and spirited fragrance, the initial spray of this fruity-floral scent delights with bright cucumber flower petals, juicy mandarin, and the sparkling freshness of bright baby freesia buds. In the heart notes, a lush bouquet comes forward, including petally jasmine, pink water lily, Southern gardenia, and the petals of red candied rose. A sweet depth wraps around these floral notes with a rich accord of crème brûlée. In the base, sensual and woody undertones create a lasting impression with notes of cedarwood, bleached sandalwood, lush vanilla, and whipped marshmallow.
