You’ve got your vacation wardrobe sorted, but what fragrance will you be wearing with your sunhats and linen pants?  In addition to adding extra dimension to your ‘fits, a vacation fragrance can help you remember your travels by connecting your nose to the summer memories made — even if a few of your days end in a blurry night out. 

We’ve curated our favorite vacation fragrances. Ahead, these scents embody the different types of travelers you might come across — or embody yourself — this summer.

L'Artisan Parfumeur - À Fleur de Pêche 

Notes: peach, jasmine, patchouli 

The persona: The TravelTok Influencer 

The Perfume: À Fleur de Pêche is an on-trend perfume for equally trendy travelers. If your summer calendar is filled with TikTok’s hottest FYP-friendly vacation spots, you’ll love L'Artisan Parfumeur's room-filling, fruity fragrance — it’s a scent that other people will notice and compliment you on.   

Amouage - Enclave

Notes: peppermint, cardamom, cinnamon, pink pepper, olibanum, patchouli, vetiver, rose, amber extreme, leather, Labdanum 

The persona: Mr. Carpe Diem

The Perfume: Amouage’s Enclave for those of you who wake up as early on vacation as you do on a work day. You’re up at dawn,  not to secure a place by the pool but to knock out a five-mile hike before breakfast. Enclave is an invigorating vacation perfume that will keep you smelling fresh and sophisticated,  no matter how actively adventurous you are this summer.  

Krigler - Monsieur Dada 18

Notes: green orange, black pepper, cardamom, cedarwood, musk, nutmeg, patchouli 

The persona: The Rich Friend

The Perfume: Very much giving “main character vibes”, the posts of your lavish friends and family trips end up on people’s mood boards. No one pays for anything around you, with “I gotchu”, becoming your signature saying, while you and your bestie turn the Arabian Gulf into your playground. You’ve put in the work to build yourself a little empire but understand deeply that it’s no fun if you can’t share the wealth with the people you care about. 

LOEWE - Paula's Ibiza Cosmic

Notes: amber, cedarwood, coconut, cypress resin, mango, pear, sandalwood, Spanish cistus 

The persona: The Festival-Goer 

The Perfume: Paula’s Ibiza Cosmic is as vibrant as the scene at your favorite DJ’s festival set. Think: sun, sprawling crowds, and tropical drinks. This is one of those vacation perfumes that will linger longer after the festival season is over. 

Dolce Melodia - Sospiro 

Notes: mandarin orange, orange, saffron, jasmine, pear, gardenia, rose, blackcurrant, sandalwood, white musk, vanilla

The persona: The Foodie 

The Perfume: You’re cosplaying as The Bear’s Carmy or the legendary Anthony Bourdain, dining everywhere from Michelin-starred establishments to hole-in-the-wall hidden gems. You want to smell just as delicious as your meal, so a summer gourmand like Sospiro is just what the chef ordered.

Fragrance Du Bois - Santal Complet 

The persona: The Parental Figure 

Notes: coconut, lemon, violet, black pepper, sandalwood, vanilla, musk, amber  

The Perfume: There is a quiet confidence about Fragrance Du Bois’ Santal Complet. This is a vacation fragrance for the person acting as the unofficial travel agent, parent, driver, and occasional therapist on your friend group’s summer getaway. If that’s you, you already know you’re a pro at planning, from organizing outings to purchasing tickets. You make sure everyone has the best experience. Your reward? A scent that smells good in every setting, whether you’re TK or TK. 

Zoologist Perfumes - Seahorse 

The persona: The Risk-Taker

Notes: fennel, guatemalan cardamon, ambrette (musk mallow), tuberose, clary sage, neroli, algae, ambergris, vetiver
