Fresh! Bright! Juicy! I'm Ditching My Signature Scent for These Summer-Specific Perfumes

If I had to deem one fragrance as my signature scent, it would definitely be Phlur Missing Person Eau de Parfum. With notes of skin musk, bergamot nectar, sheer jasmine, and Australian sandalwood, it's a beautiful, barely there perfume that envelops the skin. I love it. But that doesn't mean I wear it every single day. It's actually quite the opposite. As a beauty editor, and someone who collects perfumes, I love switching up my scent depending on the day, my mood, and the season. And come summer, I bring out the freshest, brightest, juiciest scents.

I'm talking about sparkling citrus notes, soft florals, warm bergamot, creamy sandalwood, and beyond. They're so good that they're pushing my beloved Phlur signature scent out of rotation (well, temporarily, at least). So without further ado, scroll to see the 20 best summer scents to spritz throughout the season!
