3 incredibly good summer perfumes

We asked the fragrance expert for the three best summer perfumes on the market.



Arielle, owner of Arielle Shoshana, dishes to Glass Alley on her go-to summer scents. Because no matter what’s on your summer calendar, smelling good is always in the plans.


My summer vacation plans? I’m so glad you asked. First class tickets to glamorous, exclusive My Apartment. Amenities include complimentary foot massages from the cat. (Please note: masseuse may use claws.) My only chance for jet-setting this summer is through the transportive power of perfume. Think of these fragrances as a quick getaway to your dream destination.

1. Saint-Tropez

With notes of coconut, jasmine, and aloe vera, Smell Bent St. Tropez-Dispenser smells like the chicest sunscreen you’ve ever slathered on. 

2. Waikiki

Childhood memories of Hawaii are the inspiration behind Kai‘s lush bouquet of gardenia, plumeria, and pikake. 

3. Calabria

Calabria is the world’s largest producer of bergamot, including the vividly tart bergamot used in Atelier Cologne Bergamote Soleil
