• Summer is no time for a heavy, musky perfume. Instead, you need light, refreshing scents that get you excited for the beach and days at the pool. A new body scrub from Bodycology in Coconut Lime Twist ($5.99, Target.com) will transform your shower into a tropical getaway.

    Get A Sheer Wash Of Color

  • Right after you get out of the shower is the best time to put on a nice smelling moisturizer, like Bath and Body Works Coconut Lime Breeze Body Lotion ($11, Bathandbodyworks.com). If a light floral scent is more to your liking, try Champneys Spa Indulgence Exotic Retreat Body Cream ($9.99, Target.com). Not only will you lock in moisture, but it will keep your skin smelling summery and sweet.

    Make Waves With Summer Color

  • Get a glow like Lauren Conrad with a self-tanner that doesn't smell like self-tanner. Jour Luminizing Body Glow ($36, Jouercosmetics.com) smells of jasmine and honeysuckle, while giving your skin a natural looking golden tint.

    Slimming Secrets Using Self-Tanner

  • Sunscreen is a real hit or miss, scent-wise. While some tend to smell like chemicals, there are some that are pleasantly surprising, like JASON Mineral Natural Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF30 ($12.49, Jason-natural.com). Not only is it all-natural, but it will smell sweet on your skin.

  • A woman should never forget about her hair when it comes to smelling good. While some products deliver great hair results without a good smell, there are those that offer the full package. Fekkai Beach Waves ($25, Fekkai.com) will give your hair luscious waves and leave you smelling perfectly peachy.

  • As much as we hate to think about it, the hot weather can bring the mosquitos out of hiding. While the smell of most insect repellents doesn't exactly scream sexy, Avon SKIN SO SOFT Bug Guard Plus Anti-Itch Spray ($10, Shop.avon.com) has an amazing smell that is perfect for summer.

    How To Go Bare...Everywhere

  • When going out for a hot date, a few drops of scented oil on your skin can make all the difference. Saffron James Monoi de Mo'orea Tahitian Vanille ($40, SaffronJames.com) smells of vanilla bean. You can put it directly onto your body or hair or soak in a tub with a few drops in it.
