Summer is a great season for renewal! Sure, you could renovate your house or finally dump your boyfriend—but why not try something a little less drastic and switch up your scent? Fall/winter fragrances tend to be a bit strong (think heavy orientals and musks), so in the summertime, it’s fun to try lighter, brighter scents (like citruses and subtle florals). From Mariah Carey’s new fragrance trio, Lollipop Bling (debuting in July), to Gwen Stefani’s adorable Harajuki Lovers Sunshine Cutie Baby scent, we’ve compiled the best summer 2010 perfumes under the sun.
A sparkly blend of Sea Spray Accord, Rose Passion and Frangipani Flower, Givenchy Very Irresistible Summer Vibrations ($54) smells like a tropical beach vacation, bottled.
Marc Jacobs Daisy in the Air ($57) is a limited edition, summer 2010 version of the best-selling Daisy fragrance. Blended with Violet Leaves, Ruby Red Grapefruit and Gardenia, the ultra-light perfume comes with a scented string of blue daisies to hang in your boudoir, office, or any room you want to freshen up.
Burberry for Women Summer 2010 ($65) is a super-luxe scent spiked with Black Currant, Mint, Mandarin and White Peach. Somehow, it just smells rich!
Harajuku Lovers Sunshine Cutie Baby ($30) makes us so happy! Not only is the bottle simply adorable (check out her teeny bikini!), the neroli and musk-blended scent is sweet, crisp, and totally addictive.
Fresh Strawberry Flowers ($24.50) is a luscious fruity floral spiked with mandarin, yuzu and fresh mountain strawberries. Yum…almost edible!
Sparkly, sunny and sensual, CK One Summer 2010 Limited Edition Eau de Toilette ($44) is blend with essences of watermelon, pear, water lily and lime. The best part? It smells equally as sexy on your man is it does on you.
Having a scandalous summer fling? Spritz on Ralph Lauren Summer Romance ($78) before meeting your lover—the mix of passion fruit, hibiscus and tiare flowers is absolutely irresistible.
