Let’s face it, not all of us have the time (or the funds!) to take a lavish summer vacation. However, you can at least smell like you just took the tropical trip of your dreams. I’ve rounded up five of the best summer fragrances in a range of prices that bottle up scents of the sunny season, so you feel like you’ve landed in a blue-skied paradise.

R+Co Relative Paradise Fragrance Spray, $20

Spray on this exotic blend of sensuous scents and be whisked away to a tropical paradise. Infused with an earthy blend of eucalyptus, tree moss, tangerine and lemon, Paradise Fragrance Spray delivers a fresh, woody scent that resembles what you might smell after a tropical rainstorm.

TOM FORD Soleil Blanc, $55-$605

This one’s for you, sun-chasers! Complete with an addictive solar amber scent and a splurge-worthy price tag, TOM FORD’s Soleil Blanc takes wearers on a luxurious trip to a sun-soaked private island. Notes of pistachio, bergamont, cardamom oil, and a hint of saltiness bring summer to life.


Jo Malone London Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne, $68-$136

Biting into a ripened nectarine gives me true summer vibes. Nectarines, peaches, and currants thrive during sunny seasons and their sweet taste is a refreshing warm weather treat. Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne merges the succulent scent of juicy summer fruit with a luscious acacia honey scent for a delicious fragrance that follows your every move.

Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist , $19-$32

A couple spritzes of this intoxicating body mist will transport your senses to the balmy beaches of Brazil. Infused with Sol De Janeiro’s signature scents of pistachio and salted caramel along with tantalizing notes of vanilla and sandalwood, Brazillian Crush bottles up the summer smells of Rio de Janeiro so you always feel like you’re on vacation.


Caudalie Fleur De Vigne Fresh Fragrance, $39

Caudalie Fleur De Vigne Fresh is your summer trip to Napa, California in fragrance form. Blooming for a short time in June, Fleur De Vigne (grape flowers) let off a refreshing smell that signifies the coming of the vineyard harvest. Along with white rose, watermelon, and pink peppercorn scents, this lightweight fragrance delivers a cool, energizing mist effectively capturing the delicate aroma of grape blossoms.
