Trust, there is definitely a scent for everyone.

Best Fresh Floral Scent
Jo Malone London Orange Blossom Eau de Cologne
Jo Malone’s orange blossom was the signature scent of the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William at Westminster Abbey then you know it’s a good one. Clementine blossom, white lilac and vetiver come together to create a fresh floral scent that is truly one of a kind.
Best Floral Woody Scent
Tiffany & Co. Tiffany & Love Eau de Parfum For Her
There is nothing “sultry” or “fragrant” about this woody floral scent from Tiffany & Co. Top notes of basil, cassis and grapefruit layered with jasmine, neroli and cedarwood create a perfume that equally earthy and refreshing. And the chic blue bottle? Totally obsessed.
Best spicy scent
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau de Parfum
Whether you have your coffee black or with a small dose of something, you will love this spicy scent from YSL. Developed around notes of coffee, absinthe and orange blossom, this long-lasting fragrance is the perfect kind of indulgence and seduction for your Saturday night outing.
Best Fresh Scent
Christian Dior Eden Roc
I love absolutely everything about this scent. It is inspired by Eden-Roc, an ultra luxury resort in the south of France, and smells like a literal dream. The best way to sum up the atmosphere? Sunny day on a super yacht drinking Sancerre between two swims in the Mediterranean. You know everyone’s a normal summer, isn’t it?
Best Light Floral Scent
Floral Street Wonderland Peony Eau De Parfum
Selfishly, peonies are my all time favorite flower, so naturally I have no problem smelling like one. Yet even if flowers aren’t your thing, don’t be intimidatedâthis is not your typical stuffy, sultry, floral scent. It’s incredibly light and pretty, so you’ll only feel a peony whisper rather than a scream.
Best Classic Floral Scent
Giorgio Armani My Way Eau de Parfum
Describing a scent as “unpredictable” might sound a little light-hearted, but when it comes to that scent, I promise you it’s not. Inside this beautiful pink and blue bottle is a Flower combo of tuberose, jasmine and orange blossom, which all work together to give off a crispy feel without smelling powder.
Best tropical scent
Aerin hibiscus palm
If you’d rather take flights rather than feelings, this exotic and tropical fragrance with notes of lotus and hibiscus palm will get you at the first spray. Now imagine yourself sipping cocktails while watching the sun go down instead of to sip bad coffee sitting on your laptop.
Best warm floral scent
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle
Hot and sexy meets fresh and floral in this best-selling fragrance from Chanel. Notes of spicy patchouli, tangy orange and rose smell deliciously fresh and modern, without being too ~ girly ~.
Best Aquatic Scent
Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gioia
Fresh, airy and watery – a few sprays of this iconic Giorgio Armani scent are honestly the closest thing to a dip in the Mediterranean. I love wearing it as a summer scent, but TBH, it’s a winner all year round.
Best Gourmet Perfume
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb
If you were an early teenager like me, then Flowerbomb probably already holds a special place in your heart. I was my first perfume purchase in 2006, for example, and I still own it today. The sweet gourmet juice has notes of vanilla, patchouli and jasmine which are sweet, delicious and totally timeless.
Best Floral Fruity Perfume
Dolce & Gabbana Shine
If summer is already itching (uh, hey, same), try spraying this fruity floral scent from Dolce & Gabbana. The juicy mixture of mango and jasmine will make you dream of hot and sunny days at the beach or in the park.
Best woody scent
Tom Ford Oud Wood
This scent has a cult following for good reason. The smoky and woody blend of oud, sandalwood and vetiver directly feel sexy and mysterious. It’s the perfect scent for a date or for going out. Well done, Tom Ford.
Best sweet scent
Ariana Grande Cloud
You won’t want to say âthank you, nextâ to this sweet Ariana Grande scent. Inspired by the joint tattoo she shares with ex-Pete Davidson, the scent has a blend of lavender, pear, creamy coconut and vanilla orchid that makes it definitely sweet, but not at all cloying. Think of this as the nine cloud of celebrity scents.
Best citrus scent
Replica Maison Margiela Under The Lemon Trees
This unisex scent (although, to be fair, literally anything can be unisex if you want to) is the closest you can get for a stroll through Palermo, Italy when the lemon trees are in bloom. But you know, well, a lot cheaper than the plane ticket. Inspired by an old memory of perfumer Violaine Collas, the the bright and sparkling citrus scent has notes of coriander, tea leaves and white musk.
Best spicy floral scent
Gucci Guilty For Women
The iconic Italian house is going back to its roots with a modern take on its original Pour Femme fragrance, except this time it’s a little more intense and daring. Key notes like mandora–a Mediterranean fruit – are completed with touches of bergamot and pink pepper for a fun floral spice. A deep base of patchouli oil allows this sexy scent to stay put all day (or night) without fading into distant memory.
