Perfume_girl Nothing says summer like sun-kissed skin, sandals, swimsuits and shades. But what good would all of those be without a sexy, refreshing summer fragrance to complete your look. From the latest concoctions to the irreplaceable classics, here are our favorite perfumes for the season.

CK One Summer 2009 by Calvin Klein
A lighter, breezier version of the classic unisex scent by Calvin Klein, the 2009 CK One Summer edition delights the senses with top notes of mint, cucumber, lime and bergamot. Middle notes are sea water, green apple, rosemary and lotus, and base notes are rum, sandalwood, and oakmoss. This aromatic, aquatic fragrance is great for a day at the beach or pool.

Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue
This Allure Best of Beauty Award winner is clean, fresh and lighthearted, just like a summer perfume should be. It’s floral, fruity scent is lively and captivating, without being over the top. Jasmine, amber, citrus, white rose, bamboo and musk balance perfectly, making this a great fragrance to wear on those sultry summer nights

Burberry Summer
A fresh and sparkling take on the original Burberry scent, summer is a radiant green fruity floral with mandarin, lemon, grapefruit, apple, vanilla and moss; however, it’s the notes of red currant and Riesling that give this dazzling fragrance its unique edge. This scent is made for summer travel and scenic day trips—just one spritz and you’ll feel refreshed and beautiful all day long.

Marc Jacobs Splash Collection
The Marc Jacobs Splash series includes three adorable, summery scents. I love each one equally; hence, I can’t write about just one. The collection is made up of Rain, Cucumber and Lemon Ea de Toilette Sprays. Each one captures the spirit of the season, evoking happy summer memories with a cool, bright feel. These are good for any time and any occasion, and the best part is that it’s a body splash, so you can spray liberally without smelling like you’ve been shopping at the fragrance counter all day.
