Top 5 Summer Fragrances ❥ 2016

Top 5 Summer Fragrances (2016)

The sweet smell of summer is right around the corner and when I say sweet, I mean it literally. I don’t know about you, but for me, summer months mean glowy makeup looks, summer dresses and light, fun scents!

Here are my “Top Five Fragrances” that make a rainy day feels like a day at the pool …


Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanilla Ambre

Top 5 Summer Fragrances (2016) Comptoir Sud Pacifique

Top note, heart note and base note : Vanilla, Amber, Patchouly, Musk.

Not only is it by far my favorite summer scent but this one is right there on my lifetime favorite perfume list. What’s not to adore: the sweetest bouquet of vanilla mixed with some mystery oriental aromas. Totally unique and the “yumminess” stays all day long. LOVE

Demeter Fragrance Library Raspberry mixed with Blood Lime

Top 5 Summer Fragrances (2016) Comptoir Sud Pacifique

Raspberry: Bright, fresh, tangy citrus is the dominant sensation.


Blood Lime: A citrus hybrid, a balanced scent of Blood Orange and Lime.

Individually, these two are refreshing but mixed together, I smell like a paradise cocktail. My love for Demeter products have been displayed over and over on this blog so it’s not a surprise that their fragrances are part of my daily (and nightly) summer routine. Vacation in a bottle!

Bath and Body Works Waikiki Beach Coconut 

Top 5 Summer Fragrances (2016) Waikiki Beach Coconut

Top Notes: Fresh Bamboo, Coral Berry Mid Notes: Pink Passionflower, Hawaiian Frangipani, Coconut Jasmine, Saltwater Breeze Dry Notes: Beach Coconut, Sun-bleached Woods, Forest Sandalwood

My friend Stashy deserves a big “Thank You” for this sublime beach-like scent. At my first snif, I knew this was my kind of fragrance! It’s not as sweet or sugary as my other favorites but it reminds me so much of my tropical vacations. Probably the closest I will ever be to sunny Hawaii (since BeardMan will never pop up the big question and my Dream Honeymoon is just a fictional scenario)!

Lavanila Vanilla Coconut

Top 5 Summer Fragrances (2016) Lavanila Vani

Notes: Creamy Coconut, Tahitian Tiare Flower, Madagascar Vanilla.

This is possibly my most repurchase perfume! I can’t get enough and Lavanila is one of the few brands with BBW that are Cruelty-Free. I could have easily included Vanilla Grapefruit too in my choices. I hope you start to see a trend in my personal preferences: vanilla, coconut & sweet stuff.

Philosophy Love Sweet Love & Unconditional Love

Top 5 Summer Fragrances (2016) Philosophy Love Sweet love & Unconditional Love

Love Sweet Love:  Fruity fragrance infused with sparkling pink grapefruit with its flirtatious effervescence, juicy mango essence to inspire a lively happiness and irresistibly warm, comforting vanilla to wrap you in love that makes a woman feel smitten and irresistibly pretty.


Unconditional Love: An expressive fragrance infused with black raspberry speaks of soulful love, peaceful white lily makes you feel cherished and cashmere vanilla shares affectionate warmth.

With names like these, what’s not to “LOVE”! Again, great perfumes on their own but mix these two and you end up stalked by strangers who want to whiff you (exaggerating just a tiny bit). I’m not a big fan of the brand’s other fragrances but boy, these two smell like heaven.


Thanks for stopping by my beautiful friends xxx

  1. I love vanilla and coconut and vanilla coconut scents too. Despite that I haven’t tried any of these! I’ll have to add these to my list – I love collecting and trying new fragrances. Fantastic post!


  2. I think our noses must be identical, because everything you listed, I would definitely wear as well!
    And so timely you listed the Philosophy perfumes – I bought a few at Winners recently. I LOVE “Love Sweet Love”! Such a nice citrus scent, and it lasts so well on me too!
    And PS. BeardMan absolutely needs to take you to Hawaii, even if not to propose, but to simply enjoy the experience! ❤ (I've not been there personally but it is on my list! A bunch of my friends visited last year and they all loved it)
