We’ve curated our top picks for fresh, long-lasting, sweat-proof fragrances that will transport you to your happy place in Aruba… St. Tropez… Bali… Well, you get the idea. Summer is more than a season – it’s a state of mind, of romantic wanderlust and wishful thinking. Wherever you are, watch out – these scents are comin’ in hot, hot, hot!
1. Eau d’Italie Shower Gel
Refresh your showers with the smell of Positano in the evening. Inspired by the glamorous guests of Hotel Le Sirenuse in the Amalfi Coast, Eau d’Italie’s Signature Collection shower gel is infused with bergamot, incense and blackcurrant buds. Bring out your inner Elizabeth Taylor and lounge in a dreamy bubble bath for instantly smoother skin.
2. Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Cipresso di Toscana
Take a walk among the nature reserves of Tuscany with Acqua di Parma’s newest addition to its Blu Mediterraneo collection: Cipresso di Toscana. A leitmotif in Renaissance art, the cypress tree is the humble muse for this fragrance. Orange and petitgrain are layered under star anise and elemi, and further complemented by sage and lavandin to put you into a total state of tranquility.
3. AERIN Aegea Blossom Eau de Parfum Rollerball
For our floral gals, we’ve selected AERIN’s Aegea Blossom. This light and breezy scent is crafted with notes of Sicilian bergamot, mandarin, and verbena to carry you along the coast of a glittering ocean. Paired together with jasmine, neroli, vetiver and sandalwood, Aegea Blossom lingers on the skin like sunlight on a warm day. The rollerball is also the perfect size and jet-set ready for your next tropical getaway!
4. Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil
Sparkle like golden sand with Tom Ford’s Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil. Perfect for those days when you’re lounging on the beach, working on your tan (with SPF of course!), and lusting after that magazine-worthy shine. Upon application, you’ll immediately fall in love with the sensual combination of bergamot, cardamom, pistachio, ylang-ylang, benzoin, and coco de mer. Sun-kissed skin never smelled so good.
5. Captain Blankenship Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray
If you’re a mermaid, I’m a mermaid. The Captain Blankenship Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray is a quick and easy way to achieve perfectly tousled beach waves. Even if you weren’t able to spend the whole day playing in the ocean because you have a 9 to 5 job, no one will be able to tell the difference. Organic sea kelp extract and aloe vera nourish and moisturize, while Atlantic sea salt works to give you that sexy, boho texture. Topped off with rose geranium and palmarosa, Captain Blankenship brings you one step closer to your fantastical life in the sea.
6. Corpus Santalum Natural Deodorant
Summertime dreaming doesn’t always take place by a salty ocean. For some of us, summer lovin’ happens on the cusp of a tranquil lake, surrounded by the towering trees of a woodsy forest. Stay fresh during your rustic adventures with this all-natural, vegan, paraben-free, and aluminum-free deodorant. The Santalum fragrance is naturally derived from sandalwood root, Texas cedar wood, and amber to mimic the aroma of a lush forest – a scent that will actually last all day long.
Don’t miss out on the BWB Buzz and keep the sun-kissed scents of summer in tow all year round.
