If your vacation does not fall on the summer season, you should definitely treat yourself to one of these summer fragrances. We have put together a selection specifically for those who stay in the city for the summer.
Paris-Riviera by Chanel
This summer fragrance is a continuation of the fresh and elegant Les Eaux de Chanel collection. This time, perfumer Olivier Polge takes us to the Cote d’Azur of the 1920s, where creative people from all over the world came to relax, including Coco Chanel herself. The atmosphere of the sunlit seacoast and unhurried holiday rhythm is transmitted by a combination of citruses with a mix of jasmine, neroli and sandalwood base. Olivier bought raw materials for the fragrance on a French farm in Vallauris, located near the Cote d’Azur, where the locals bring orange-coloured petals for sale.
Omnia Crystalline by Bvlgari
This composition is one of the timeless summer fragrances classic. Cool aroma tones like an icy shower, setting up a working mood. Lotus, bamboo, tea and a leaf of black currant are responsible for the cooling effect, while green moss is responsible for the long-lasting effect. In May 2019 in Düsseldorf, Omnia Crystalline won the Dufstars Award for best female fragrance. The author is perfumer Alberto Morillas.

Aenotus by Puredistance
The name of the fragrance is a non-existent concept word with a Latin ending, which was invented by Jan Evud Vos, the founder and artistic director of Puredistance. The composition is an attempt to convey the feeling of a cool wind gliding over the delicate skin. This is possible thanks to the abundance of fresh citrus fruits – orange, mandarin, lemon, yuzu, cool mint, greens and bitterness of black currant, petitgrain and oak moss, soft musk and velvety patchouli. The aroma contains an unprecedentedly high content of perfume oils – it reaches 48%.
Figues & Agrumes by Maison Lancôme
The fragrance is a part of the Grand Crus collection, which in French means “harvest from an excellent piece of land.” Each of the summer fragrances in the collection is created just like the wine of the highest class, as a combination of different types of raw materials, from different regions, specially selected according to strict criteria.
The Figues & Agrumes fragrance is dedicated to Mediterranean gardens. It is simple and straightforward. And very suitable for lovers of minimalism. The composition is based on the appetizing freshness of green figs and citrus peel in combination with the softness of grandiflorum grandiflora jasmine, which is especially appreciated by perfumers for its fresh and slightly honey aroma.
