With summer fast approaching, it’s time to carefully store those heavier cold weather fragrances away and unleash the feel-good aromas of summer. The best frangipani perfumes offer a dazzling feast of tropical floral and fruity notes.

Frangipani is a fragrant flower that adds a tropical sweet summertime vibe to any perfume. Although frangipani is indeed a sweet floral scent, it also brings the tropical fruitiness of pineapple, citrus and coconut, all wrapped in delicate sweet spices.

The frangipani tree (Plumeria) is small in stature and native to the warmer parts of South America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Pacific Islands. In the summer months, the tree produces magnificent fragrant blooms of frangipani flowers that are harvested and used in perfume, scented candles and beauty products.

Jo Malone Frangipani Flower Cologne

Review

Released in 2021, Jo Malone Frangipani Flower Cologne is a summer fresh frangipani fragrance that smells light and easy-going yet exotic and expensive.

A deliciously creamy, lemony opening is soon overtaken by the sweet tropical scent of frangipani. Delicate jasmine and buttery ylang-ylang in the heart gives an almost Chanel vibe in the heart, leading to a sensual base of sandalwood.

Settles to a beautiful spring/summer feminine frangipani scent with creamy, lemony edges but only lasted 2+ hours on me. You may find my 10 Jo Malone Perfumes That Last The Longest article helpful if you want a better performing JM fragrance.

Conclusion

Each of these beautiful fragrances uses the magical powers of the frangipani flower to maximum effect. My personal favourite from this list is Parfums de Marly Cassili Eau de Parfum, as its combination of frangipani, plum, berries, and rose are exquisite.

Aerin Lauder Hibiscus Palm Eau de Parfum was a very close second. Considering it’s half the price of Cassili makes it incredible value for how expensive it smells.
