Help! Looking for my hot girl summer perfume

In desperate need of some good perfume recommendations for my hot girl summer! I’m looking for something fresh/citrusy that’s similar to Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette Spray but not quite as popular. Any recommendations or tips are very helpful!

Re: Help! Looking for my hot girl summer perfume



Some fresh or citrusy scents


  • Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune 2.5 oz  - the Guerlains are a little more old school traditional so test before buying but these two are great
  • Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca 2.5 oz/ 75 mL Eau de Toilette Spray 
  • Atelier Cologne Perfume Palette - modern and clean
  • HERMÈS Terre d’Hermès Eau de Toilette 3.3 oz/ 98 mL - hands down one of the best citruses
  • HERMÈS Un Jardin sur le Nil Eau de Toilette 1 oz/ 30 mL - there's a Jardin series set I tried to link to. These are pretty good, gender neutral, worth trying for sure, very summer appropriate
  • Jo Malone London Cologne Discovery Set - meant to be layered, these are very inoffensive, good for the office
  • PHLUR Olmsted & Vaux Eau de Parfum 1.7oz/ 50 mL - all natural option


For some more unusual ones, try

  • Frederic Malle Angeliques Sous La Pluie - gin and tonic
  • 4160 Tuesdays Ealing Green - herbaceous goodness
  • Di Ser Mizu - absolutely stunning and perfect for the summer heat but dreadfully expensive
  • Hiram Green Lustre - also quite pricey, a beautiful crisp morning rose
  • Parfums de Nicolai L'Eau Chic or any of the L'Eaus - like Guerlain these are a little more traditionally French

@hollaitsliz  Maison Margiela ’REPLICA’ Sailing Day  is a great summer scent, though maybe more aquatic than you're looking for. They also have a great discovery set Maison Margiela 'REPLICA' Discovery Set  if you want to try them out generally. Beach walk is another popular one from them though it never worked for my skin chemistry personally
