Summer fragrances should be easy, fresh, and simple. From coconut scents to light floral and citrus summer perfume, your fragrance should be just enough to make people stop and breath in the fresh air as you pass by them. Having a welcoming scent, to me, is a basic beauty essential. When you are in a time crunch (aka-absolute hot mess), and you need a quick pick-me-up, a light summer fragrance will be your safety net, at least when it comes to smelling delicious.
So, after testing out several summer fragrances for you, these are the 6 I have landed on for several reasons. Number one, they are all something I would wear and do wear…simple enough. Second, they are not going to blow up your senses and make each person around you feel like they are in your scent bubble in a bad way. And last they are all the perfect summer fragrance to wear at a fantastic price.
Coconut Scented Summer Fragrances
Right now, it’s coconut everything. Literally. And, I am fine with it. Coconut summer fragrances smell like Hawaii, and summer, and coconut ice-cream. All of which are really good things that I don’t mind smelling like regularly. Lavanilla is one of the best fragrance lines in my opinions (they also make a non-toxic deoderant..just sayin) as they combine a mixture of vanilla with all different types of fragrance notes. Another favorite is Pacifica; all of their perfumes entice you immediately because they are strong, but not overwhelming. They are also the perfect fragrance mix for summer every year.
LAVANILLA Vanilla Coconut Fragrance smells like Hawaii to me. It’s a blend of creamy coconut, Tahitian Tiare flower, and warm Madagascar Vanilla. So basically everything good. And, you can feel good about using this perfume because it is made with organic ingredients and free from harsh chemicals. (LAVANILLA Vanilla Coconut Fragrance for $58.00 at Sephora)
Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar Perfume Roll On has a coconut, honey fragrance. It’s also an easy roll-on that makes for the perfect travel beauty essential. For a lightweight summer fragrance, this one will capture you right away. (Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar Perfume Roll on Amazon or in-store at Target)
Citrus Scented Summer Fragrance
You can’t do Summer perfume without using citrus-scented fragrances! Why? I don’t know; you just can’t. I am obsessed with this Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Perfume Roll On for a lot of reasons, but mostly because it smells like candied oranges if that’s even a thing.

Just like flowers are a huge part of summer, it’s also a summer fragrance essential. We have light Rose, fresh Lotus Blossom, and some Tahitian Gardenia scents. All are incredibly lovely and perfect for your summer scent.
CLEAN Sunkissed Body Splash is a relaxed fragrance that captures the feeling and scent of a spa getaway with an oceanside view. Yeah, how relaxing is that? It’s the mingling of fresh ocean air with florals and that spa-Esq aroma that welcomes you to relax. This summer fragrance combines Lotus Blossom, Honeydew Melon, Aquatic Accord, Dewy Petals, Coconut, Amberwood, Sensual Musk, and Vanilla. (Clean Sunkissed Body Splash $59.00 at Sephora)
Here is another great summer perfume from Pacifica! It’s the Tahitian Gardenia Perfume Roll, and it’s everything you ever wanted if you are a Gardenia fragrance fan. This summer fragrance has notes of Gardenia, Jasmine, Orange Flowers, and Tea Leaves. (Tahitian Gardenia Perfume Roll on Amazon or in Target stores)
If you are a Rose fragrance fan, but like it to be light and fresh, check out the CLEAN Blonde Rose Travel Spray. This perfume is a modern, yet classic fragrance that is all types of feminine. It’s a unique blend of rose, jasmine, and peony that’s fresh and airy. (Clean Blonde Rose Travel Spray $25.00 at Sephora)
