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.
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.
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.
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.
