5 Dreamy Summer Fragrances To Try Right Now

Best Summer Fragrance 2023 | Space NK
We have a summer skincare routine and tweak our makeup bags, so it makes sense that we’d also change our perfume. Some people have fragrance wardrobes so they can switch up their scent depending on the occasion, season or mood. Floral Street founder Michelle Feeney is an advocate for this. “Fragrance plays a major part in my everyday life. From burning a clean, grapefruit bloom candle while I do early morning yoga to create optimistic energy to matching my scent to my mood and what I’m wearing each day,” she tells us.

Whether you want to find a summer perfume or extend your fragrance wardrobe, there are plenty of scents dedicated to the warmer months. Diptyque releases a limited-edition collection every year, while Tom Ford has a handful of luxury scents inspired by the Italian Riviera.

How To Find Your Perfect Summer Fragrance

Choosing a fragrance at any time of the year is always a personal decision. Some of us gravitate towards bright, cheery floral perfumes, while others like to live in holiday-mode permanently from May to September with the help of coconut and musk notes. Knowing which fragrance notes you like will go a long way with helping you find the best summer scent.

If you’re not sure which fragrance family or notes you like, shopping for a summer perfume online might be tricky. We have created helpful guides to the Best Byredo Fragrances and What Every Floral Street Fragrance Smells Like, but we highly recommend popping into your local Space NK store to have a spritz and a sniff. Our beauty advisors are on hand to help guide you through our fragrance brands, which include Boy Smells, Jo Loves, Maison Margiela Replica and many more.

In the meantime, here are some of the scents we’re enjoying right now – from the summer classics to the newly launched.

Our Favourite Summer Fragrances For 2023


Tory Burch

Divine Moon Eau de Parfum, € 86,00

The perfect summer scent to ease you into autumn, Tory Burch Divine Moon gives you an uplifting zesty hit when you spritz, but on the dry down it’s super smooth and creamy. The calming blend of almond milk, white florals and sandalwood feels fresh, clean and comforting.


Sol de Janeiro

Cheirosa '62 Perfume Mist, € 19,00

Sol de Janeiro Cheirosa 62 Perfume Mist is an iconic summer fragrance – a quick look at your TikTok newsfeed will confirm this. If you use the brand’s Bum Bum Cream you’ll be au fait with the gourmand scent and its blend of pistachio, vanilla, salted caramel and sandalwood. It’s inspired by Brazilian summers and gives you all the post-beach vibes. If you like your fragrance on the sweeter side, this is definitely a potential summer perfume for you.


Floral Street

Sweet Almond Blossom Eau de Parfum, € 32,00

If you know floral scents are your vibe, Floral Street is a brand to seek out. The latest offering, Sweet Almond Blossom Eau de Parfum has a spring-like freshness with green matcha and blossom, but the creaminess of vanilla and a hint of almond provides warm nuttiness that lingers.



llio Eau de Toilette Limited Edition, € 144,00

Bergamot, jasmine, iris and prickly pear are the key notes in Diptyque’s summer perfume, Ilio Eau de Toilette. The delicate scent is perfect for those warm, balmy days when you’re looking for something fresh and light. Every year the Parisian fragrance brand collaborates with a different artist for its summer collection and this year the colourful packaging is courtesy of Erik Winkowski.


Tom Ford

Costa Azzurra Eau de Parfum, € 36,00

Looking for the best men’s summer fragrance? Let us introduce you to Tom Ford’s Costa Azzurra. Inspired by the French Rivera, the blend of seaweed, ambrette and oud intertwines with zesty lemon and mandarin conjures up memories of the sea air against a sun-soaked backdrop. There’s a clever hint of lavender that is distinctly French. This scent is luxuriously relaxing and transports you almost instantly to sunnier climes.
