The Best Summer Fragrances For 2021

Choosing a scent that isn’t too overpowering or strong for summer can be tricky. Something light. Something airy – perhaps, fresh and floral but defiantly not woody. We’ve rounded up eight of the best scents for summer. Here is our comprehensive list.

TOM FORD Bitter Peach

Tom Ford Bitter Peach is a part of the collection Private Blend, officially released in early October 2020. Inspired by fresh, ripe fruits filled with sweet nectar, Tom Ford blends intoxicating Pêche de Vigne with Sicilian Blood Orange Oil to create the Bitter Peach Eau de parfum. Dubbed by the house’s eponymous founder as “explicitly sweet and dangerously voluptuous”, it marries rum-infused Davana Oil, Cognac Oil and Jasmin Absolute Sambac at the heart while the base smoulders with notes of sandalwood, Cashmeran, Vanilla, Tonka Bean and Indonesian Patchouli.

Gucci, A Song for the Rose

Gucci fragrances open a new story of magic and imagination in Luxury Collection: The Alchemist’s Garden.

Alberto Morillas worked with Alessandro Michele’s vision on a collection using pure natural plants and flowers layered with modern molecules. Blended through rediscovery, a hero ingredient is magnified for each scent: Oud, Amber, Violet, Iris, Mimosa, Rose and Woods. Every fragrance and every formula are created as a unicum, telling the story of a place, a moment, a season, and a smell of memory.

Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait de Parfum Maison Francis

Born from the encounter between Maison Francis Kurkdjian and Baccarat, as a celebration of the 250th anniversary of the iconic crystal house, Baccarat Rouge 540 is a unique oriental floral fragrance suitable for both men and women. The Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait de parfum augments the strength and radiance of the fragrance’s amber woody floral aura. Top notes of jasmine grandiflorum and saffron from Egypt delicately accentuate the powdery, gourmand facets of bitter almonds from Morocco, extracted as an essential oil using an ancestral process. Lastly, the breath of minerals built around ambergris softens on contact with a woody musk accord. A profusion and fusion of the elements that can only be tamed by the art of the perfumer and time-tested wisdom.
