Fresh and sunny: 5 new scents and perfumes we can't wait to wear this summer

Want to smell amazing this summer?

The evenings are getting brighter, the days sunnier, and soon – so soon – we'll finally be able to head out for brunch and dinners with friends again. Catch up with family or colleagues in sunny beer gardens or charming streetside cafés. The joy!

We can't wait to ditch lockdown sweats for summery dresses, brighter colours and – of course – a brand new scent! I mean; I don't know about you, but I have barely worn perfume at all these past 18 months, and I cannot wait to update my smell to something new and happy and summery. This year, more so than ever, I feel like my summer scent should brim with life, light, and effervescence.

And so whether you fancy something fruity, beachy or slightly more exotic, here are five gorgeous new scents for summer 2021:

1. Maison Lancôme Jasmin d'Eau Floral Perfume

Perfect for summer, this delightfully fresh floral perfume is built with a heart of jasmine tea and white peach, topped with a bouquet of bergamot team and plum blossom. In other words, summer in a bottle.

The beautiful glass bottle is embossed with the fragrance’s ingredients on the golden plaque, meaning it will not only smell good, but look equally well on your bathroom counter.

€184, Brown Thomas

2. Angel Iced Star Eau de Toilette

Fans of Mugler's Angel will love this new limited-edition scent.

Angel Iced Star is an irresistible Fruity Oriental Eau de Toilette that exudes freshness. The exotic notes of coconut water mixed with the energetic scent of pineapple make the fragrance composition wonderfully refreshing and, we think, perfect for summer.

€56, Arnotts

5. Valentino Voce Viva Eau de Parfum

We predict that this is a new cult classic in the making. Valentino Voce Viva Eau de Parfum blends vanilla, tonka bean, white flowers and citrus, and feels both exotic and alluring.

It evokes memories of far-flung travel, sun-kissed beaches, exotic fruits, and we love the unique and very sexy bottle – perfect for when you are feeling sassy and sexy!
