Best summer perfumes 2022: Our favourite seasonal spritzes starting from £28

Ah, summer. The days are longer, the weather is warmer, and we’re all generally in a better mood. That mood boost is only, er, boosted with the help of one or two of the best summer perfumes.

Of course, there are no hard or fast rules as to what perfume you wear all year round; fragrance is very personal. But the seasonal spritzers that we tend to lean towards at this time of year are often lighter with citrus, fruity and floral notes, while heavier spicy and woody concoctions take a back seat.

Let us tell you, there are some corkers that have launched recently, so we decided to round up a few new summer perfumes that’d pair perfectly with an outdoor picnic or a glass of Pimms. Right this way for your new signature scent…

5 of the best summer perfumes for 2022

Caudalie Eau Fraiche Thé Des Vignes, £28 for 50ml here

This floral number is one of five vineyard-inspired fragrances on offer from Caudalie, with notes of jasmine, white musk, orange blossom and neroli. It’s a lovely floral and slightly fruity fragrance, but not too sickly sweet. Although it’s only 50ml it’s still one of the more affordable perfumes out there, so a great choice if you don’t want to spend too much.

Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraîche Sunburst Bottle, £67 for 100ml here

OK, OK, *technically* this classic fragrance has been around for a long time now but the bottle is limited edition, which is good enough for us. This scent is probably one of the best-loved holiday perfumes of all time among beauty editors and influencers alike, all creamy coconut, vanilla and sandalwood. And who wouldn’t love this cheerful sunshine design? Nobody we know…

Ariana Grande God Is A Woman Eau de Parfum, £28 for 30ml here

Long before she was making great makeup (read deputy beauty editor Zoe’s r.e.m. beauty chapter 2 review to see what we mean), Ariana Grande has blessed us with several affordable fragrances over the years. The new addition named after one of her most recognisable hits is a fruity floral scent that’s a cool mix of ambrette, pear, Turkish rose petals, vanilla and creamy cedar – all for less than £30.

Diptyque Ilio Eau de Toilette, £107 for 100ml here

French perfume house Diptyque’s limited edition Summer Essentials collection is all inspired by the Mediterranean, so naturally the Ilio fragrance is very much a holiday vibe. Think bergamot, prickly pear, jasmine and iris. Beautifully illustrated bottle aside it’s a gorgeous summer scent and despite being an EDT, we found it lasted pretty well. It’s fresh and sweet and smells like sunshine – perfect for any upcoming holidays to Greece or Italy.

MCM Collector’s Edition Eau de Parfum, £69.50 for 50ml here

Raspberry, apricot, peony and jasmine are the key players in this fresh unisex fragrance, wearing down to a woods and vanilla base that’s not too heavy for this time of year. And if you like fun packaging, this new bottle, created in collaboration with Korean street artist SAMBYPEN, will make a great addition to your fragrance collection.
