Five fragrances inspired by nature to give you the perfect summer scent

In partnership with Notino.

By Will Stroude

This season, fragrances are taking a walk on the wild side.

Invigorate the senses and immerse yourself in the aromas of the forest, or be swept away by the ocean…

Armani Acqua di Gio – 125ml

With Acqua di Giò Profumo, a scent inspired by volcanic rock and deep ocean waters, Armani has created the perfect storm.

Incense, sweet bergamot, sage and rosemary blend with marine accords to make a perfume that has all the exhilarating power of ocean waves crashing onto the rocks. We’re here for the drama.

Green Irish Tweed – 100ml

You can’t beat a classic, which is what Creed do with aplomb. Blending lemon, Indian verbena and a touch of mint, Green Irish Tweed is forest freshness in a bottle.

Escape to the lush Irish countryside through its aromas of freshly cut grass, summer flowers and herbs swaying in the breeze. In lieu of being able to go anywhere right now, we’re ready to be transported through scent alone.

Versace Dylan Blue – 100ml

You’ll make waves with a splash of Versace’s Dylan Blue Pour Homme perfume.

The distinctive fougère (fern-like) fragrance combines grapefruit, bergamot and woody fig leaf with aquatic notes to whisk you from the forest to the sea and back again. As fresh as an ocean breeze.

Abercrombie and Fitch Fierce – 50ml

Abercrombie & Fitch’s Fierce cologne has stood the test of time since its launch in 2002. Even the fragrance’s bottle evokes memories of the topless male models that greeted you at the entrance of the store (we bet you got a picture with them, back in the day).

Perfect for summer, Fierce is super fresh, with notes of spicy cardamon, fir, orange and invigorating lemon blended with petitgrain essential oil to add a bittersweet twist.

Bryedo Bal D’Afrique – 100ml

Byredo is having a moment in the beauty world, dazzling us with exciting collaborations and innovative new products — and their fragrances are no different.

Their unisex scent Bal d’Afrique Eau de Parfum combines slightly sweet notes of citrus and wood that intensify in the heat, making it a go-to for those hazy summer nights… all we need is a glass of pinot.
