Where do you want to escape to this summer? Maybe Mexico City, with its bustling streets and the smell of citrus heavy in the air? Perhaps the Vietnamese coastline, the sea breeze carrying the slightly spicy scent of orange blossom? Or would you rather stay closer to home: a sun-dappled English rose garden in late August? Even if you’re not jetting off this summer, the season’s best new scents are ready to transport you. 
From light, airy and fresh to warm, spicy and heady, for daytime and for evening, we’ve covered them all in our roundup of summer 2022's top new perfumes. Best enjoyed in your favourite sundress, with a new beach read and fresh fruit in hand — whether that’s poolside or parkside.
