We get it: The salty waves give you a glowing finish and fresh summer scent — but after heading home from the beach, you don’t always want to take that balmy smell with you. This is where rollerball perfumes come in. Not only are they great for adding whichever twang of scent you’re feeling, they’re also super compact and easy to carry, whether you’re coming from the sand and waves or you just hopped off a plane at your vacation locale. Ahead, find our seven favorites for the sunny season.
This “sun juice” is what summer perfume dreams are made of — Sun di Gioia by Armani is a super bright and warm — reminiscent of that “just left the beach” feeling without the excess salt.
Black Opium is one of the coolest YSL fragrances, simply because it wakes you up with just one whiff. A mix of vanilla, coffee and orange blossom, this scent is excellent for the much needed pick-me-up post sand and waves.
Byredo Gypsy Water tells a beautiful woody story — with lots of lemon and a little pepper. It will seamlessly complement your after-sun skin and will get you ready for rooftop happy hour in no time.
Maison Margiela Beach Walk is one of those fragrances our summer soul simply can’t live without — it’s extremely radiant, has zesty notes of bergamot and gives us nostalgic beach feeling of growing up by the water.
Berries and flowers define Diptyque Do Son perfectly, and we wouldn’t have this fragrance any other way. We love that this is an oil because it maximizes the scent in a compact package.
For a classic summer rollerball, we always find ourselves turning back to the OG La Vie Est Belle by Lancôme. With hints of jasmine and orange blossom, this fragrance makes us happy and ready for summer application in just one application.
Blood orange has a new definition thanks to the Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine rollerball — and we’re so here for it. We love how vibrant and exciting this scent is, and it instantly gives us a summer high — with just one spritz.
