1). Myrrhe & Délires by Guerlain

EDP 75ml, £154

This unisex scent exclusively available at Selfridges has an aroma of the East, labelled as Oriental Woody. Top notes including black and pink pepper and grapefruit, with a Somalian Myrrh heart on a base of incense and licorice, make it both fruity and intense for summer.

2). Chance Eau Fraîche by Chanel
EDT 50ml, £50

Fresher and more summery than the original, the Eau Fraîche is classified as Chypre Floral. Notes include citrus, over a jasmine and water hyacinth middle, on top of a vetiver and musk base. This scent is full of life and energy.

3). L.I.L.Y by Stella McCartney
EDP 50ml, £60

With a sharp note nostalgic of a spring morning, this perfume stands for Linda I Love You, a nick name for Stella’s mother from her father. With notes of truffle and Llily-of-the-Valley, the base note of oak moss gives it a masculine edge. One for the less girly-girls.

4). Body by Burberry
EDP 60ml, £55

Distinguished as Chypre Fruity, this a sexy smell for the hot days. Opening with youthful scents of freesia and peach, Body ends on musky sandalwood to control the sweetness.

5). J’adore by Dior
EDT 50ml, £51

Elegantly and traditionally floral for summer, this is a fresher take on the eau de parfum. With a top note of orange, and a heart of ylang-ylang sitting on a romantic rose base, this is perfect for a summer wedding.
