As the mercury rises, a new spectrum of scents starts to delight our senses. The moody, cocooning perfumes that comfort us in the cold months suddenly seem a bit too heavy, while fragrances with lighter, brighter, more transparent notes feel just right. Now that you’ve swapped out cashmere for silk, find your perfect summer sillage with one of these warm-weather-worthy spritzes.

First, a hit of lemon, then you get the twist. As heart notes of neroli and mandarin melt into a base of sugar-sweet cotton candy, Sundazed radiates a nostalgic, fun-fair vibe. Something like remembering the joy of a childhood beach excursion during a very sophisticated, grown-up happy hour.

Though eau-de-cologne has historically been identified as masculine, these are different times—so here’s a heady-but-fresh scent that obeys no rules. Centered around citrus rinds—specifically blood orange, chinotto, cold-pressed lemon and green mandarin—this creation from Brooklyn-based niche perfumery is just about as cool as it gets.

The fragrances in Chanel’s Les Eaux de Chanel collection evoke the voyages taken by Mademoiselle Chanel throughout her life; this, the fourth installment, zooms in on the Cote D’Azur, where the designer spent time with friends such as Salvador Dali and Jean Cocteau. Its luminous blend orange peel, citrus, neroli and jasmine, anchored by creamy sandalwood, is like the sparkle of sun on blue water.

Looking for something completely different? Favor the Catskills over the Hamptons? Marrakesh over Miami? This one’s for you. Created by rebellious natural perfumer (and Goop collaborator) Douglas Little, Dirty Grass smells like freshly cut grass, vetiver, and honeyed hay, and delivers a dose of full-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD oil with every spritz.

Krigler Palm Dream

SHOP NOW: $475

Created in honor of the legendary brand’s new Four Seasons Palm Beach boutique, this fragrance is as elegant as it is completely unexpected. Orris, one of the priciest and rarest ingredients in perfumery, gives it an earthy, powdery effect; combined with raspberry, orange blossom, cedar, amber, and violet, the impression is vintage and ladylike, with a depth and sexiness that works mysterious magic on a sultry summer night.

Eau de Minthé Eau de Parfum

SHOP NOW: diptyque, diptyqueparis.com, $175.00

It’s hard not to fall for this unusual spritz, which was inspired by the Greek myth of the water nymph Minthe and the underworld god Hades (long story short: they had an affair, his wife found out, poor Minthe was turned into an aromatic herb). A fresh, unisex reinvention of the classic fougere accord, the composition is enlivened by Cascade Mint, a unique species that grows only in the Pacific Northwest, and deepened with patchouli.
