Go-to fragrances women will love

Women’s preferred scents vary due to individual tastes. Some prefer musky florals, some citrus florals, others love the powdery dry downs, while others prefer gourmands. Maybe these are worth a try.

Flowery scents have always been people’s classic in go-to fragrances. They evolved into exciting combinations nowadays, from floral gourmands, warm florals, fruity florals, and more. Who What Wear mentioned that this year, however, warm florals will take center stage in trends.

Floral with a twist

Lancome mentioned warm floral perfumes contain flowery scents combined with spicy, woody, and gourmand notes.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540, Dior’s J’adore L’Or Eau de Parfum, St. Rose French Poetry eau de parfum, Burberry Her Petals, and Tom Ford’s Rose Prick are great choices for floral scents with a warm twist. 

InStyle reported that Baccarat Rouge 540 possesses gourmand top notes of cotton candy. It also contains floral and woody notes like jasmine, saffron, ambergris, and cedar.

Dior’s J’Adore L’Or comes off more floral at first. Cosmopolitan reported that the major sweetness of its jasmine notes pull off the scents of almond, mango, and banana.

The best of both worlds

The lovers of both feminine and masculine scents will love the selections Elle curated as you claim the best of both worlds.

Jo Malone London Ginger Biscuit Cologne, Parfums de Marly Althair, Van Cleef & Arpels Moonlight Rose, Diptyque Eau de Minthe (Mint), and BYREDO Rouge Chaotique made the list of the top unisex scents worthy of keeping in one’s rotation. 

Whether or not you’ve found the perfect scent for this year or you’re looking into adding another perfume in your collection, owning these fragrances is worth it. Being loyal to one is okay, but so is equally loving them all at once! 

The era of bolder fragrances

Fragrance expert Tynan Sinks said through People that we are now making their way into louder, sweeter, and more fun fragrances. This is opposed to the former trends which feature light and “barely perceptible scents.”

We can’t wait to see the go-to fragrances which could land in most people’s scents closets this year!
