Having a signature fragrance is something that is not easy to find, but super rewarding once you do. Nothing is a better compliment than people telling you that you smell good. However, not all of us want to go from perfume to perfume spritzing samples at the mall. Here are some fragrances you’ll obsess over!
1. Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist
If you own any Sol de Janeiro products such as the Brazilian Bum Bum cream, then you know how amazing they smell. I seriously cannot get enough of how good the smell of the lotions are, so imagine putting that into a fragrance! I had no idea they created this, but now that I do I would put this at the top of your fragrance list. It has a predominately cocoa butter, beachy scent that is like summer in a bottle. While the mist can have a lighter scent, use it with the Bum Bum cream for a scent that lasts all day!
2. Cloud by Ariana Grande
Upon doing research for this fragrance, I was surprised to see the rave reviews it got by people who weren’t just fans of Ariana Grande. Normally, when a celebrity releases a fragrance, tons of fans of the person will just leave good reviews just because it’s their fave celebrity. If Harry Styles had his own, I would do the same thing. However, it is said to be a good dupe for MFK’s Baccarat Rouge, which goes for hundreds of dollars per bottle. With hints of coconut and vanilla, you’ll get a sweet smell with a lingering of warm and woodsy. It also lasts a very long time, so a little goes a long way.
Yves Saint Laurent creates some of the best fragrances money can buy. Whether you know the cult favorites such as Black Opium, or you’ve just heard about their collections of luxury perfumes, you need to try a YSL fragrance at least once in your lifetime. Libre is a great introduction fragrance with hints of orange, lavender, musk and some floral undertones. The floral mixed with musk scents allows for a bit of naughty and nice, the perfect perfume for day and night. It’s a fragrance filled with contrast: lavender and musk, day and night, sweet and sour.
4. Carolina Herrera Good Girl
First of all, this perfume comes in a bottle shaped like a stiletto heel which is totally hot. If that isn’t enough to sell you already, the whole campaign for the fragrance is based on the ever-changing views on modern femininity. While there are base notes of coffee, tonka and cocoa bean, the more top and middle notes of the perfume are jasmine and almond, so you get the best of both worlds. It’s a great fragrance to show the dimensionality of being a woman, having all sorts of scents come together to create one feminine scent.
5. Chanel No. 5
The classic. The most famous fragrance to grace this planet. Something generations have used time and time again and is showing no signs of slowing down. Chanel No. 5 is the original Hot Girl perfume. This strong scent is reminiscent of luxury, glamour and all things femininity represents. Women of all ages flock to the Chanel counter for one of their oldest, most trustworthy scents and you can’t blame them. It’s long-lasting and contains notes of jasmine and sandalwood to give you a classy scent that is guaranteed to wow everyone.
6. You by Glossier
I have worn this fragrance for a few months now and I love it. The best part about this perfume is that it caters to your pH levels, so it smells a little different for everyone. It’s a unique fragrance that blends into your skin and works best with your pheromones to create something that is fully you. People rave about this perfume because of how great it smells on everyone, so you don’t need to worry about it not mixing well with your natural scent. It’s the safest bet for someone who does not feel like picking out a fragrance and getting a headache.
7. Bright Crystal by Versace
This is another tried and true perfume, one of my old favorites. Versace has a ton of great fragrances that people are absolutely committed to using for the rest of their lives. You can trust anything Versace, really, because they rarely let you down. This fragrance in particular is especially delicious and lightly scented. With floral notes and an adorable crystal-esque, pink-toned bottle, you can’t go wrong with Bright Crystal. I wore this perfume for years and every time someone new would compliment the way I smelled. It’s long-lasting, but won’t overpower your senses with its floral notes.
8. Gucci Memoire d’une Odeur
This perfume was oddly hard to spell, but it smells delicious just trust me. I was a bit worried when the original peer reviews came out and saw that some people did not love it. However, my mother recently bought it for me because Harry Styles models in the campaign and how could I resist? This unisex fragrance is actually incredible! It has notes of cedarwood, chamomile, vanilla, and jasmine to give this a more light, lingering scent than anything else. You will feel like you just took a barefoot walk on the beach at sunset once you put this on.
9. Juliette Has a Gun Not A Perfume
Not a huge fragrance or perfume person but still want to smell good throughout the day? Here is the product for you: a clean, minimalistic fragrance that has woodsy scent used as the base of most fragrances. The only difference is is that this is the only ingredient within the whole “perfume.” It satisfies the needs of even the pickiest of noses without too much fuss, and leaves you smelling fresh throughout the entire day.
