The warm weather is calling, and hopefully that means cool breezes, warm sun, and digging your toes in the sand. But if you’re stuck indoors and you need to mentally transport yourself to a seaside retreat, look no further than a fresh and airy summer scent that channels afternoons spent at the beach. Featuring notes of coconut, tropical flowers, and sandalwood, these perfumes all have a calming feeling that makes us want to lay down with a good book and toss back a summer cocktail.
1. Pinrose Sun Saint Eau de Parfum ($65): A beautiful combination of lime, sea salt, cashmere, and coconut wood, this summery spritz gives off seriously relaxed, hypnotic, and serene vibes with each use.
