10 Sexy Fragrances to Wear This Summer
Living in New York, one of my top summer beauty concerns is making sure I don’t smell like a hot, sweaty, humid subway platform. That's where one hard-working deodorant stick and a bottle of perfume come in handy.
Fragrance is all about portraying a mood or a vibe, and in the summer, I want that to be sexy, fresh, and as carefree as possible. I don't want a scent that sits too heavy on my skin when the weather hits over 70 degrees, which means my warm, vanilla musks just aren't going to cut it. I know I'm not alone in that request either, so I rounded up 10 of the sexiest fragrance that are worthy of your summer vacation.

What does endless summer smell like? According to Philosophy, a combination of lychee, pomelo, and warm and sunny musk.
Fresh Sugar Lychee Eau de Parfum
Sweet and fruity lychee is rounded out with citrus, bright florals, and warm amber. It's the adult take on a traditional fruity summer fragrance.
Cartier La Panthère Eau de Toilette
Gardenia is what's responsible for making this new, ultra-feminine fragrance from Cartier so radiant and bright. The soft floral is combined with musk, making it delicate and sexy.
Jo Malone London Jasmine Sambac & Marigold Cologne Intense
Made with notes like marigold, jasmine sambac, and amber, this newly launched fragrance was inspired by the flower markets of Southern India. If you prefer a summer fragrance that's more spicy than sweet, this one is for you.
Krigler Parfum VILLA BORDIGHERA 20
It's definitely a splurge, but also one of the best citrus-based scents I've ever smelled. This ultra-luxe, limited-edition fragrance was inspired by the lemon trees that populate the area of Bordighera, Italy. The crisp, invigorating scent of lemon is paired with bergamot, rose, grapefruit, and kashmir wood.
TOM FORD BEAUTY Neroli Portofino Eau de Parfum
Use this tribute to an Italian escape as your final excuse for booking that June vacation. It's light and fresh, but sticks around thanks to the standout notes of neroli and Sicilian lemon.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar Eau de Parfum Spray
Viktor & Rolf has mastered the art of making a floral fragrance incredible sexy. "Nectar" is a deeper, more sensual take on the Flowerbomb original, thanks to powerful notes like orange flower and tonka bean.
RALPH LAUREN Romance Rosé
It's rosé season, even for fragrance. Like a fine wine, this new edition of Ralph Lauren romance concentrates on the floral rose de Mai, along with fruity notes of lychee and red apple.
DOLCE & GABBANA Dolce Garden
So maybe your morning routine doesn't always allow for a walk along a flower-lined path. Your solution is Dolce & Gabbana's newest floral fragrance, designed to envelop you like a blooming summer garden.
Calvin Klein Eternity Air for Women Eau de Parfum
It's easy to find a pretty floral or fruity fragrance. "Fresh" is a little harder to achieve. Calvin Klein mastered the category with Eternity Air, though. True to its name, it's airy and awakening, all due to the perfect combination of peony, pear accord, skin musk, and black currant absolute. It's hard to pinpoint the exact notes when you smell it on your skin. It's simply pleasing.
