Once in a while. I really want to smell like Summer. When I do, I go for a coconut scented one or sometimes a fragrance that includes fig. But there is one overall theme I really like… and that is the sun-tan-lotion-fragrance. So I made a list with my favorites. Because we all like a good list now and then right ;-)
Have a great day!
Sun-tan lotion perfumes the list by Fragrancy
(In no particular order).
*Keep in mind that not every fragrance can be worn in the sun.
The classic and affordable
Jil Sander Sun
The sun-tan-lotion fragrance with no coconut or tiare! This fragrance is a classic and I will always love this one since it also reminds me a lot of my mom. A very typical you hate it or love it fragrance, that is unique and very affordable. Hopefully this one will never be discontinued and if it will be, I’m sure the prices will be sky high on Ebay ….
Welcome to Miami
Kilian Love the way you feel
Tiare flower, coconut, and ylang-ylang. This is your typical Summer sun-tan-lotion fragrance with a price tag. Performance is really good. I get a lot of tiare flower with this one but it develops into a creamy skin-scent. Perfect for daytime.
A fresh breeze on a warm day
Maison Margiela Beach Walk
This is a fresh take on a warm Summery fragrance. On my skin it doesn’t work but I know it does on others and it’s getting very popular in Holland! I wish this fragrance would be a little more coco-nutty … and less fresh, but I do appreciate it. Would be great as a home fragrance or laundry detergent.
Warm afternoon on the boulevard
Montale Intense Tiare
If you are a big fan of tiare flower, and you want something very long-long lasting. Go for Intense tiare. I have fallen in love with this fragrance (and Montale perfumes in general). Besides the tiare, you also get hints of rose and jasmin mixed with some coconut. Very oily, seductive goodness.
Dry sand on warm skin
Estee Lauder Sensuous Nude
A woody, floral, creamy coconut fragrance. Every time I wear this people compliment me on it. It’s a very interesting woody tropical fragrance that I believe is going to be discontinued. Lasting power isn’t that great but I do love this fragrance that also contains a honey note.
Tom Ford eau de Soleil Blanc
The king of all the tropical fragrances is eau de Soleil Blanc by Tom Ford. Oriental, creamy, spicy goodness. With notes of pistachio, ylang ylang, tonka and tuberose + coconut. If you want to invest in something, buy this one.
A breezy morning on a hot day
Aerin Hibiscus palm
For the people that need a breath of fresh air. Palm leafs, lotus, ylang, coconut and vanilla!
Dinner at the seaside
Guerlain Terracotta Le Parfum
Are you a fan of Guerlain? Do you want a fragrance that smells like Summer? Terracotta Le Parfum is the one you should pick. I totally get the Guerlain DNA with this one, this one does last a long time on my skin. (But other people always complain to me because of performance….) Perfect for a dinner date or a night out.
A cocktail at 4
Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Coconut Fizz
It smells like a cocktail, it’s fresh like the sea, light and subtile. Really love this one but the performance is not perfume worthy. More a body mist. A pricy one.
Sunburn after sunbathing
Lancaster eau du soin (can be worn in the sun).
Smells like the classic Nivea cream in the blue jar, mixed with sun-tan-lotion. Nice to fresh yourself up with.
