The best 7 fragrances for a strawberry girl summer
Ultimate it-girl scents
BEAUTYcrew Beauty & Social Editor / October 23 2023
There’s nothing TikTok loves more than a food-centric beauty trend. What started with the glazed donut aesthetic has since transformed into latte makeup, tomato girl makeup, chocolate glaze hair and cherry mocha nails. And this summer is set to be the era of the strawberry girl.
So it’s time to break out your favourite blush sticks and freckle pens to channel Hailey Bieber’s latest aesthetic. And there’s no harm in adding a strawberry perfume or two to your collection – you know, to embrace the full strawberry girl experience.
Whilst strawberry-forward fragrances have long been a staple on the shelves of sweet scent lovers, strawberry doesn’t have to be sickly sweet. In fact, there are a plethora of strawberry perfumes that lean more towards fresh and green. And we’ve rounded up the best on the market for gourmands and soft girls alike.
MALIN+GOETZ Strawberry EDP
Strawberry, but not as you know it. This fragrance swaps candy-like strawberries for a fresh, green take on the fruit, with a subtle hint of sweetness that makes it perfect for layering. Sparkling bergamot, mara strawberry and woodland greens collide to create a bright, crisp fragrance that will become a mainstay in your summer scent rotation.
$148 at Selfridges
BDK Bouquet De Hongrie EDP
Forget the sweet strawberry spitzes you grew up on (ahem, VS Bombshell). This floral-forward scent is the it-girl staple you need this summer. Earthy notes of amber, cedar and musk wrap around the top notes of crisp pear and strawberry blend. Turkish rose adds a soft powdery heart to the fragrance without turning it into your grandma’s perfume.

Guerlain Insolence Eau de Parfum
If you’re looking for a strawberry perfume that embodies the warmth and vibrance of spring and summer days, this is it. Notes of violet accord and bright iris mingle with bright orange blossom and strawberry for an elegant, long-lasting scent that evokes a cottagecore fantasy.

Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris
Inspired by the vibrance of Paris, this fruity-floral scent is the perfect blend of sweet and earthy. Top notes of strawberry, raspberry and citrus are transformed by a heart of peony and orange blossom, and grounded by patchouli, vanilla and cedar.
