This one’s for the scent-obsessed! We’ve gathered the top picks fragrances of the year. You’re welcome!
- Libre Eau De Parfum, Yves Saint Laurent
Said to be the brand’s “fragrance of freedom,” the combination of orange blossoms, lavender, neroli, mandarin, vanilla, and amber make for a reimagined take on florals.
Not only is this bottle an artistic masterpiece, but its burst of fresh florals is masterfully created by Dior perfumer François Demachy. Bergamot, mandarin, Rose Grasse absolute, jasmine, sandalwood, and musk work together for this scent that kindle pure joy.
When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing like spritzing your skin with a scent that’ll warm you up. Per Hermès’ description: “The vibrant and abundant heat of pink peppercorn, the teenage freshness of tender rose, and the captivating enchantment of patchouli” is merged to color all of your senses.
Nobody but Tom Ford could take lavender to the next level and remix its classic roots to make it smell brand-new. You can trust that this sparkling bottle will not do you wrong. 5-Into the Night, Bath & Body Works
This more affordable piece is a captivating blend of dark berries, midnight jasmine, and rich amber. Plus, it’s made with a concentrated amount of oil to prolong its staying power throughout the night.
If you could single handedly choose one flower as the focus of a fragrance, and a pretty white jasmine sambac from Bangkok feels right, you’ve met your match. This single-note scent, dreamed up by master perfumer Louise Turner, can stand alone or be layered into your ideal scent wardrobe.
7-Daisy Love Daze, Marc Jacobs
This bottle holds a charming scent of apricot, osmanthus, and golden amber.
8-Nightclubbing Eau De Parfum, Celine
Let’s take it back to Parisian nightclubs in the nostalgic eras of the ’60s and ’70s, which are evoked by this scent crafted by Celine’s creative director Hedi Slimane. Notes of white orris butter, patchouli, tree moss, vanilla, and musk work off of its top note, galbanum, to capture an “electric atmosphere,” as the description reads. In other words, spritz this on and then grab your dancing shoes.
9-La Panthère Eau de Parfum Spray, Cartier
This “feline fragrance,” made of musk and gardenia by Cartier’s in-house perfumer Mathilde Laurent, is reimagined in a top shelf-worthy, limited-edition bottle that’ll make you feel fancy and is practically calling your vanity’s name.
10- Les Eaux De Chanel Paris-Riviera Eau de Toilette Spray, Chanel
“Fresh, sunny, with a crispness reminiscent of the early morning air,” is how a reviewer described Chanel’s newest summer scent on their website, and I couldn’t agree more. It’s equal parts tangy and flowery thanks to Neroli and Sicilian Orange, and will make you want a book a trip to Paris (*looks up flights to Paris*).
