Because People Like Lists: The Best Summer Perfumes

I know you like lists.

I live where it’s hot and very humid, so unlike the rest of the year, I lean towards light, airy florals, green fragrances, dry spices and energizing citrus scents during summer.

Without further adieu, here are my 28 favorite fragrances for summer in alphabetical order:

Diptyque Oyedo
Frederic Malle Carnal Flower (note: love this in summer but I wear it all year long)
Frederic Malle Le Parfum de Therese (note: love this in summer but I wear it all year long)

Hermes 24 Faubourg Eau Delicate
Hermes Eau des Merveilles

How about DKNY (in the tall bottle)? I find that cool and summery.
In hot weather (not that we get a whole lot of that, here!) I also like Sage Machado's 'Sage' oil, or Jo Malone's White Jasmine & Mint.

Thanks for the suggestions. I haven't tried DKNY and will now do so! I love Sage's "Sage" oil, too, but have never tried Jo Malone's White Jasmine and Mint, it sounds like an intriguing combination and especially good for hot weather.
