my 5 go-to summer fragrances

Here’s how evenings at my apartment usually go:

Me: (Settling into bed, closing laptop) What should we watch tonight?

Boyfriend: (Grabbing remote) There was that new documenta — AW man, there’s another one in the way again! (Now rolling his eyes at the collection of perfume bottles that have now migrated from the vanity side of my dresser to the TV side of the dresser, conveniently blocking the signal to the TV).

Both of us: (Waiting for the other person to get out of bed to move it. Spoiler alert: I can wait A LONG TIME usually in these cases. Boyfriend, not so much.)

Boyfriend: Do you really need ALL of these perfumes, anyway? (Moving perfume bottles in an annoyed huff.)

Me: I’m going to pretend like I didn’t hear that. They’re all beautiful and unique in their own way.

Boyfriend: Are we still talking about perfume here or some unborn children I don’t know about…?

Of course, as much as I hate to admit it — my boyfriend brings up a valid question. Does one REALLY need the vast amount of perfumes that I currently stock on my vanity (a quick count yielded 45)? The answer is NO. One doesn’t NEED them. But one could really like to have them on hand and I certainly love mixing up my fragrances from time to time, particularly with the season. You all know I have my tried and true favorites (like Diptyque’s Vetyverio and Le Labo’s Santal 33) but I usually try to mix in a few wild cards every few months for the sake of shaking things up.

Since I’ve developed quite the mini rotation of new favorites the past few summer months, I wanted to share some of my highlights with you all.


What are your favorite fragrances for the summer? Any must-haves I should check out?

  1. Wow! 45 is awesome. And here I was thinking that 12 was too many and I’m not going to buy any new ones till I finish what I already own :). I used to love Rose Essentielle by Bvlgari but they have stopped making it :(. Currently loving Love by Chloe!
