Sun. Sand. The glittering blue sea. If you've holidayed in the Italian coast, you'll know how breathtakingly beautiful it can be. The newest private blend fragrance from Tom Ford is Sole di Positano — a scent that is meant to capture the dream-like  beauty of the Italian coast. First up beauty junkies will love the bottle. Reminiscent of the packaging in the Neroli Portofino collection, the flaçon is a luminous, aqua tourmaline glass that recalls the calming hues of the sea and sky and will look entrancing on any #beautyshelfie.

But a scent is only as good as the juice inside, and you won't be disappointed by this sparkling, green citrus floral. One splash makes you feel transported to the vacay of your dreams — sitting on sunlit beaches. Described as a "luxurious mélange of sun-drenched citrus", the fragrance contains Italian bergamot, bitter orange, lemon, and mandarin as well as shiso leaf. Adding a more intoxicating twist is ylang ylang oil and sandalwood, while jasmine absolute, muguet and orange flower add floralcy for that depth. And what's a Tom Ford scent without the signature sexy twists of soft musk and green moss to give it that sophistication? The result is a summery scent worth splashing out on.

$330-$850. Available at Tom Ford Beauty counters
