14 of the Best Summer Scents, From Classics to New Favorites

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Here now, the very Best In Beauty: Cosmetics, skin care, nail polish, and more tiny miracles personally vetted and loved by our editors.

Welp, if you can't conquer your own summer scent, you can always mask it (that's kinda French, right?) with a bottled scent. Find below our editors' favorite perfumes, roll-ons, and mists ranging from crisp, seaside spritzers to heady, masculine sprays, and the closest thing you can get to custom from the comfort of your own—hopefully air-conditioned—abode.
