The best fruity perfumes to try this season
We love our florals, that’s for sure, but for a hit of freshness, there’s nothing quite like the spritz of a fruity fragrance. Citrus scents like lemon, lime and orange are known to boost energy levels and promote happiness, while notes of peach and raspberry are delectable summer choices.
If you’re in the market for an everyday perfume to spritz this summer, look no further than these juicy delights…
IF YOUR SUMMER FRUIT IS GRAPEFRUIT…
That perfect balance between sweet and sour is unmissable on hot, sticky summer days. Fresh, light and packed full of punch, this vibrant, tangy aroma begs to be worn.
Jo Malone London Grapefruit Cologne is the real deal. Combining top notes of grapefruit and tangerine with a spicy heart of rosemary and jasmine, the uplifting, zesty scent feels light enough to wear on the skin on even the hottest of summer days.
IF YOUR SUMMER FRUIT IS ORANGE…
Known to help with anxiety and depression by lifting your mood and energy levels, orange-based spritzes are topnotch for revitalising and awakening the senses…
Chloe L’Eau de Chloe Eau de Toilette is as inviting as an Aperol Spritz on a sunny day; it’s zingy, light, fresh and floral. Call it your new classic, this ultra-feminine and playful perfume has a carefree spirit. Spritz it on and bring to life notes of lemon, mandarin and orange, with a dash of grapefruit, along with cedarwood and grounding amber.

Unlike its former fruity counterparts which are traditionally sweet, fig lends itself well to floral and aromatic scents.
Calvin Klein CK One Gold EDT is loud for all the right reasons. Fig, bergamot, sage, violet, neroli, vetiver, wood and patchouli come together in this golden-glazed number that’s truly memorable. It’s one that you’ll love to keep spritzing, night and day, all season long.

IF YOUR SUMMER FRUIT IS WATERMELON…
The mouth-watering taste of watermelon is both delectable and undetectable – an ideal choice for those impartial to perfume but want a hit of freshness when the temperatures rise.
The enticing Shay & Blue Watermelons Fragrances is explosively fresh with quenching notes of watermelon and green mandarin. Like biting into a watery slice, this scent is an instant hit for the senses.
IF YOUR SUMMER FRUIT IS PEACH…
The aroma of peaches screams summer, so get your dose of the delicious fruit morning, noon and night.
The lush floral accords of Robert Piguet Fracas have powerful impact. This provocative beauty offers tuberose in such a dark guise it seems almost disconcerting, and yet, as the composition develops, a sweet glow of peach softens the effect. Together, they form the most elegant juice that’s sweet without being too sickly.

Discover notes of raspberry, red fruit, pomegranate and blackcurrant, along with a bold heart of rose for balance. It’s feminine, it’s sweet, but totally refreshing and wearable.
