If you’re in the mood to smell like pina coladas on the beach all summer, you’re in for a treat. We’ve put together a list of all the summer scents — from the classic go-tos to new-ins — that will have you smelling like a summer’s day on the beach.

Acqua de Parma Blu Mediterraneo Chinotto di Liguria

While the name is a mouthful, this scent is a classic that’s almost always recognizable. If you’re into citrusy scents, then this iconic blue-bottled perfume is the one for you. It gives major “taking a walk on an Italian beach drinking limoncello” vibes, no matter where you are.

Maison Margiela “REPLICA” Beach Walk

A scent inspired by the beach – literally. Close your eyes and spritz this scent to get transported to a summer beach day. The notes of lemon, coconut, and cedarwood make it warm and comforting, replicating the smell of an ocean stroll on a warm evening.

Byredo Velvet Haze

This scent is the perfection option if you’re not into the super sweet, typical “summer” perfumes. The combination of musk and patchouli makes it a go-to summer night option. It has a slight earthiness to it, which makes it super mysterious, while the coconut water makes it refreshing.

Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Spray

We already know and rave about the body cream and newly released shimmer lotion from Sol Janeiro, and the body spray is no different. It has that same pistachio and caramel scent that smells good enough to eat. Try layering the lotion and body spray (for ultimate staying power) for that tanning-oil-but-better scent that we all know and love.
