Bright and Airy Personal Fragrances for Sunny Seasons
Sweet Anthem (OR)
Maker: Marisa Borrevik
Each award-winning clean, vegan perfume from Sweet Anthem brings together traditional scents with a dash of Pacific Northwest character. Like Noémie, a take on the classic French floral with a hint of Oregon’s verdant forests. Combining light, sweet flowers like Hyacinth, Lilac, and Rose with the fragrances of towering trees, this scent delivers the promise of growth and new beginnings like no other.
Maker: Bree and Megan Elliott
In Greek mythology, Eos is the goddess of dawn. With one stroke of her rosy fingers, she paints the morning sky with the radiant colors of dawn. Tart lemonade, fresh raspberries, and candied rose petals capture the vivaciousness of sunrise, crystallizing the pink and gold of daybreak into this dewy rollerball.
BIOS APOTHECARY (NY)
Gem Story Oil – Calm
Maker: Michelle O'Carroll
Breathe in a zesty sprinkle of grapefruit entwined with the romantic musk of ylang ylang for a calming blend. BIOS APOTHECARY infuses this meditative roll-on with crystals and quartzes carefully curated for their aura-healing properties. Like a salve for the soul, the soothing scent dances with peridot and Egyptian opal to break up energy stagnation and debut a new season of life.
Providence Perfume Co (RI)
Jadeite Eau de Cologne
Maker: Charna Ethier
Nothing announces summertime like long, lazy afternoons on a sun-splashed patio where daytime stretches out for hours. In Jadeite, Providence Perfume bottles up the relaxing vibes, calling on chilled glasses of iced green tea with sparkling notes of citrus, mint, and lime kissing the tip of your nose.
Shu Ritual Fragrance
Maker: Rebecca Guenther
Warm summer weekends can make you feel like you’re floating amongst the clouds. With this fragrance, the Egyptian god of the sky, Shu, is here to gently lift you upwards. Peaceful lavender, chamomile, and oakmoss are the notes that support this airy scent, perfect for a sweet afternoon slumber.
Maker: Katja Schmolka
Malibu-based SCENTCLOUDS knows a thing or two about fresh summer days basking in the sun—and they bottle up their know-how into this fruity and beachy blend. One spritz of this citrus-drizzled mist will whisk you away to a carefree SoCal afternoon by the ocean.
Coyote Wild (AZ)
Fragrance 03 “Eclipse”
Maker: Victoria Bradely
Sunny seasons are a welcome time of year for the adventurer, who is supercharged with a winter surplus of wanderlust. Eclipse is the magnetic scent for the storyteller and the sun wanderer, igniting the freeness of your spirit that warmer weather brings.
Modern Peasant (CA)
Orisha Huile de Parfum
Maker: Lakenda Wallace
This sun-kissed huile de parfum vibrates with the joie de vivre of summer. Deep, resinous patchouli tangos with sparks of citrus and sweet, hypnotic oud. The energetic yet sensuous notes signal good times, like the first sip of an Old Fashioned cocktail.
Lamalama Perfumes (CA)
Maker: April Espaniola
This earthy, intoxicating scent showers over your body like the electric brio of petrichor. Pert mandarin meanders with enchanting jasmine, like the cooling yet soul-stirring deluge of a Hawaiian rainstorm.
