5 fresh and light fragrances to wear all summer


Looking for a fragrance that takes you on a journey? Here’s a look at five of the hottest suntan fragrances of the moment, to be worn all summer long and more if you like.

Rozu, by Aesop: destination Tokyo

Do you want to discover a new facet of the rose, as opposed to the old school classics of the genre dear to our grandmothers? We’ve fallen for Rōzu, an olfactory tribute to the French architect and designer Charlotte Perriand. A transposition of the Japanese gardens she was so fond of, where Japanese rose rubs shoulders with vetiver and patchouli as well as shizo, also known as “Japanese basil”.

Rōzu by Aesop, 170 euros per 50ml

Atelier des Fleurs Néroli, by Chloé: Seville in a bottle

In the same way that you choose your favourite flowers at your florist, you can choose your favourite plant from the latest collection from Chloé. This green bouquet of orange blossom with honeyed notes is the olfactory transposition of an escapade in Seville imagined by perfumer Sidonie Lancesseur, and brings us the shot of sunlight that is so cruelly missing in Paris.

Chloé Atelier des Fleurs Néroli, 117 euros per 50ml

Arancia di Capri, by Acqua di Parma: made in Italia

Nomadic and easy to carry around with us, the roll on is the ideal format for globe trotters. A concentrate of citrus, this fragrance captures the essence of Italy’s most glamorous island through notes of orange, lemon, mandarin and cardamom, a floral-fruity accord with a hint of sexy musk.

Acqua di Parma Arancia di Capri roll on, 29.90 euros per 10ml

Light Blue Forever for women, by Dolce & Gabbana: for the doce vita

A single ticket to the Mediterranean, this sunny and ultra-fresh mix of green apple, Calabrian lemon and a bright bouquet of white flowers is an invitation to dive into the translucent waters of the big blue, from the French Riviera to the coasts of Italy and Spain.

Dolce & Gabbana Light blue Forever for women, 96 euros per 50ml

Terra di Gioia, by Armani: between land and sea

Another homage to the Mediterranean, a European summer is in order; inspired by sunny lands where dunes mingle with rocks and sea, this sensual cocktail of pear, citrus, jasmine and amber woods is the ideal option for aficionados of sensual and enveloping fragrances.

Armani Terra di Gioia, 90 euros per 50ml
