A few years ago, I wrote about Maison Margiela's perfect summery candle. And now that we're finally, officially in the throes of the season, I thought I'd revisit this scent in wearable perfume form. The candle version fills any space with a happy, seasonal aroma of sunscreen, sea air and just a hint of coconutty sweetness, and in fragrance form, it envelops its wearer in those same notes and ~vibes~.

It's definitely not a subtle scent, like my go-to Glossier You, but it's perfectly festive for any warm-weather occasion. I love that although it's overtly sweet, any saccharine effect is cut with notes of citrus and a hint of salt — you know, pretty much like any ideal summertime cocktail. This fragrance is definitely going to be in heavy rotation for me over the next few months.
