Perfumes serve as one of the first things people notice about each other, so finding the right fragrance is key.
The new year is the perfect opportunity to discover your signature scent. It becomes a reflective undertaking too as you may stumble upon something new about yourself.
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.
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.
St. Rose French Poetry is “truly poetry for the senses.” It contains top notes of pink peppercorn, bergamot and pear skin. Its middle notes are jasmine, gardenia, freesia and lily of the valley, and its base has vanilla, amber, sandalwood, and tonka bean.
Burberry Her’s Petals enjoins crushed berries, violet, jasmine, combined with wood and creamy amber. It features a unique element: floating decorative pink petals.
Go-to fragrances for men in 2024
Ralph Lauren’s Polo Black contains sophistication in a bottle as it is a “bold fusion of iced mango, silver armoise and patchouli noir.”
Dior’s Sauvage Elixir focuses one’s olfactories with “tailor-made” lavender essences with hints of spices and a blend of rich, woody notes.
Calvin Klein’s Eternity proves its classic and timeless fragrance as it perfectly meshes florals, green botanicals, and woody amber really well.
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!
