ELLIS BROOKLYN
SUN FRUIT


1. First up we’ve got Ellis Brooklyn’s SUN FRUIT. The newest addition to Bee Shapiro’s line up, the chartreuse bottle screams summer holiday before you’ve even popped off the lid. Think tan lines and sun warmed bare skin. This is the way your suitcase will smell when you open it that first moment of arrival and the days of your vacation are stretching ahead of you. It’s a fruity floral, but unexpected. The fresh fig, bergamot, cyclamen and vanilla are creamy, but addictive. If you regularly daydream about being abroad while you’re sitting at your stuffy desk, this is undoubtedly a no brainer pick for you

D.S. & DURGA
JAZMIN YUCATAN


2. For the explorer in you, our second summer fling scent has got to be Jazmín Yucatan from D.S. & DURGA. This one will take you deep into the Mexican jungle. It invokes the freshness of the cenotes and the sweetness of the jungle flowers, but most importantly it nudges towards limestone ruins hidden in overgrown trees and an animalic quality which is quintessentially D.S. & DURGA. One sniff of this and you’ll instantly feel the humidity on your skin and hear insects buzzing around your head. It holds its own in the heat and will be your companion all day long

27 87 PERFUMES
HAMACA


3. 27 87 Perfume’s Hamaca is an understated salty scent ideal for those of you who want to unapologetically lounge on the sand all day. This one is for breathing in deeply and letting go. The marine accords are cool and fresh but grounded by the Tonka bean and coconut notes. This scent is for being present in the moment, and for forging memories of mindfulness as the warm breeze plays on your skin. The no-fuss minimalist in you will no doubt appreciate the waft of Hamaca every now and again, as you turn over on your towel

TOM DAXON
LACONIA


4. If you’re a citrus lover, Tom Daxon’s Laconia will hit the spot. Inspired by fresh lemonade, this scent transports you to Grecian groves hanging heavy with plump lemons, waxy skins warm from the sun. A vibrant sea breeze of a citrus scent, there’s also hints of water mint and violet leaf which give the citrus an aquatic edge, alongside an elegant base of vetiver and, unusually, cardamom for a little hint of spice. This is THE scent for wandering ancient, cobbled streets for the day. Even in the heat, it has surprising longevity

CARTHUSIA
ARIA DI CAPRI


5. Our last pick is Carthusia’s Aria di Capri. Carthusia’s perfumes are full to bursting with the smells and invocations of Capri Island, but for us this scent captures something truly special for wearing on your skin in warmer weather. Subtle yet imposing at the same time, this scent smells like sea breeze, blue skies and fresh Mediterranean flowers. It’s for spritzing first thing in the morning while your skin is still cool, before heading out into the sun to soak up all that stunning island life can offer
