The 6 best fragrances to wear this summer
Because who needs clothes?

Considering the lack of clothing synonymous with the summer months, we think it’s the perfect time to stock up on all the scents we can get our hands on.
We’ve crammed about as many mini perfumes into our handbag as we can muster, and even forced a few colognes onto the men in our lives too, but now we think it’s time to go all in and top up our own collections with a few summer-centric investments.
From citrus-laden olfactory cocktails to fresh, floral fragrances, we’ve collated six standout seasonal spritzes for you to enjoy through summer…
Santa Maria Novella Angeli di Firenze
Juicy, sweet, musky and with touches of sea salt, this peach, jasmine and vanilla fragrance is grounded by the familiar scent of sandalwood. The refreshing and tarte burst of blackcurrant and citrus at the heart add a distinct brightness to the bouquet.
$198 at MYER
Dolce & Gabbana Fragrance The One Gold EDP Intense
Fuel the main character narrative with this intensified version of Dolce & Gabbana’s ‘The One’. Luminescent fruits and florals tango together in this unique fragrance, combining juicy, moreish gold plum with the essence of rose. While smoky aromatics such as patchouli and musk settle the scent into skin.
$144 at MYER
GOLDFIELD & BANKS Sunset Hour Perfume Concentrate
A distinctly Australian summer lies in every bottle of the Sunset Hour, with Broome-native quandong adding a peachy sweetness to each spritz. Pear, mandarin, mango and rhubarb round out this veritable fruit salad of sorts, with ginger and coconut lending aromatic spice and a tropical air to the mix.
$229 at Sephora
OUAI Dean Street EDP
An ode to summers spent in the urban thrawl of London, this fragrance is an olfactory poem to Dean Street. The result? Effervescent, light-filled notes of citrus fruits, apricot and white florals enveloped in a rich, warm dry-down of amber, musk and honeyed linden petals.
$86 at Sephora
GUERLAIN Aqua Allegoria Flora Salvaggia EDT
A bottled conception of Callabrian bergamot and the spirit of wildflowers, this fragrance is marked by a signature musk base. Fresh and floral coupled with the mystery of nature’s expanse, this is a summer scent with depth.
$165 at David Jones
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Cheirosa '40 Fragrance Mist
We think a beach bag-friendly fragrance is a must in summer. Boasting a fruity plum scent mingled with creamy, warm vanilla woods, intoxicating jasmine blooms and musk, it’ll be hard to stop yourself from dousing your salt-soaked limbs in the entire bottle.
$46 at MECCA
