A guide to clean fragrance for all your Summer getawaysSummer is the time of year when we kick back, relax, and enjoy life a little more than usual—that might mean Friday afternoons off, strappy sundresses, rosé on the rooftop, and a lighter, fresher fragrance.
But what we’re really looking forward to is traveling again; there’s something about summer vacation and scent that’s inexplicably linked in our memories. So with that in mind, here are our favorite summer fragrances and the ideal getaways to wear them on.
