Extend the spirit of summer with fragrances that capture the breezy lightness of the warm weather months.
Jour d’Hermes (1.6 oz. EDT, $108) is a literal tribute to the earth mother in all of us as well as our liberated sophisticated sides. Created by Hermes perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena, Jour d’Hermes is a joyful sun dappled bouquet of summer flowers. You’ll catch notes of jasmine, gardenia, sweet pea, and my all time favorite summer aroma, orange blossom. It’s a carefully crafted fragrance that features just a twist of citrus in its top notes, and an overall grounding but fresh greenness, just like summer grass.
For water babies and beach lovers, nothing embodies the Margaritavi

Narciso Rodriguez For Her – If sugar and spice is what little girls are made of, this grown-up version of the female scent is definitely something to look forward to. I am always exhilarated by the mystery of a new parfum, because the components listed on the bottle can’t quite capture the aroma. So, make what you will of the ingredients – including Honey Flower, Orange Blossom, Vanilla, and Tactile Musk – but it’s worthwhile to pop by your local beauty retailer and take a whiff of this spicy-sweet mix for yourself.
FINAL VERDICT – GGI (GOTTA GET IT) – A signature scent is overrated. A woman can never really have to much parfum, can she?
