Summer - the most beautiful time of the year. The trees and flowers are in bloom, sharing with us their colors, life and beautiful aromas. Luckily for us, this season of perfume is inspired by these luscious scents of rose, lavender and sweet vanilla. So whether you prefer something spiced, sweet, or fresh, we've got you covered with MIM's summer fragrance obsessions.
Sweet & Floral: Chloé LOVE STORY
This perfume is a perfect blend of sexy and sweet. The floral combination of jasmine and neroli - scents used throughout history as aphrodisiacs - is perfect for date night or special occasions. The sweetness of this perfume is also light enough for daytime wear.
Fruity: Atelier Cologne ORANGE SANGUINE
Orange you glad it's finally summer? Us too! Orange Sanguine is the perfect scent to slip into when you've been invited to an outdoor celebration or Sunday brunch. You'll be as sweet as the mimosas you're sipping but with the bitter orange, blood orange and sandalwood, you'll be energized, zesty and down for anything!
Fresh: Maison Margiela REPLICA
So fresh and so clean is exactly how you'll be feeling! With a cool tone that will remind you of days spent by the ocean, the coriander and red seaweed essence is absolutely perfect to liven your summer time wardrobe.

Spiced: Tom Ford FUCKING FABULOUS
Let's be honest, the name says it all. This is for the hustlers, the girl bosses. A scent that takes charge just like you do. You'll detect notes of fresh lavender, bitter almond and worn leather that tease the senses and keep you utterly motivated.

The Cherry On Top: Glossier YOU
More of a scent enhancer than a perfume, the undertones and overtones of YOU bring out your personal scent, making it as unique as the person wearing it. You'll find a mix of pink pepper, iris root, musk and more, creating a perfect cherry on top of your natural scent.
