The Best Light Perfumes For Summer (Or Any Other Season, Really)

The right perfume can make all the difference to an outfit and your mood. But there are so many options out there – and most of them smell so good – that it can be hard to decide which. Perhaps we can help though. From department store favorites to indie darlings and everything in between, these are the best light perfumes that will have you smelling like a summer (or springtime) dream.

Dive into the glistening Mediterranean with Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue Eau de Toilette, a sparkling, floral-fruity concoction that beautifully encapsulates all the splendor of a Sicilian summer. Top notes are lemon and apple, followed by bamboo, jasmine, and white rose, culminating in musky cedar, musk, and amber at the base. More oceanic adventures await with Maison Margiela’s Replica Beach Walk. A base of musk, cedar, and benzoin comes together with bergamot, pink pepper, and lemon to deliver a scent infused with sunny, maritime notes. Prefer a touch more fruit in your scent? Try Yves Saint Laurent’s Yvresse, a sweet mixture of nectarine, lychee, lily of the valley, and violet. Combined with elements of patchouli and cedarwood woven throughout, this is a soothing perfume for women like no other, capable of transporting its wearer into a blissful state of zen.

Other light perfumes that deserve special mention are Jo Malone London’s Blackberry & Bay Cologne, Victor & Rolf Bonbon Eau de Parfum, and Diptyque Do Son Eau de Toilette. These light perfumes are not only wonderfully aromatic, but also soft and subtle, making them perfect for everyday use.

Choosing the Best Light Perfume: Knowing the Scents

Traditional fragrances can be pretty heavy and complex. As intense as they are, they’re not always easy to wear for extended periods of time. Plus, it’s not easy layering them with other fragrances since their strong scent can easily overpower any lighter scents. In contrast, a light perfume’s secret weapon lies in its careful, measured combination of notes that add depth, nuance, and beauty without ever getting too heavy or complex.

When looking for the best light perfumes, search for perfumes containing citrus notes like lemon, mandarin, orange blossom, and bergamot – as well as floral notes like neroli, tuberose, jasmine, lavender, geranium, and rose. Aromas made from citrus fruits are often refreshing and bubbly, while those made from flowers are typically romantic and feminine. As an added bonus, these lighter fragrance profiles are also suitable for everyday wear throughout the year.
