Best Choice for Compliments: Yves Saint Laurent Libre Eau de Parfum
Libre is a gender-bending riff on fougère, a typically masculine scent genre that is heavy on herbaceous lavender and earthy oakmoss. It is infused with lavender essence and Moroccan orange blossom. Though not quite a “unisex” scent, this opulent scent pays homage to Saint Laurent’s boldest designs’ sexy independent streak, allowing it to channel both masculine and feminine energy. Customers have used terms like “elegant,” “sexy,” “alluring,” and “long-lasting” in reviews of the best-selling fragrance, and we appear to agree. If you want to get a lot of compliments, this is the perfume for you.
Best Choice For Summer: Diptyque Eau des Sens Eau de Toilette
This citrusy perfume, which is part of Diptyque’s limited edition “Impossible Bouquets” line, is our absolute favorite for the summer months. This enchanting fragrance has notes of fresh orange blossom, juniper berry, and patchouli, and is described as “luminous and vibrant, like orange trees warmed by the last rays of sunlight.” Top notes of citrusy fruit arouse and delight the senses, with undertones of spices and wood, making it ideal for long days spent in the sun. Apply it to your pulse points to feel the layered composition intensify as you wear it.
Best Choice for Date Night: Kilian Good Girl Gone Bad Eau de Parfum
As the name implies, this scent has a dangerous and seductive quality to it, making it ideal for a romantic date night. Inspired by “a luscious floral whirlwind in the garden of good and evil,” this intoxicating scent is led by notes of orange blossom, osmanthus, and tuberose, which combine to create the perfect balance between sweet and sexy. This light, jasmine and narcissus-infused eau de parfum is often described as smelling “expensive” and “luxurious,” and it’s also extremely long-lasting, making it well worth the investment. Wear it with a bright red lip and barely-there heels on your next night out to channel your inner temptress.
Best choice for your Work/Office: Dior Miss Dior Rose n’ Roses
The newest addition to the beloved Miss Dior Collection, Dior Miss Dior Rose n’ Roses, offers a brighter reinterpretation of the classic fragrance while staying true to its original roots. A combination of Grasse and Damascus rose is at the core of the new Dior fragrance, imbuing it with its signature lovely floral aroma, while juicy notes of mandarin, bergamot, and white musk heighten the fragrance’s vivid, vibrant undertones. We like to think of it as the younger, more laid-back sibling of the classic rose perfume.
Best choice for Sophisticated and Elegant vibe: Louis Vuitton Heures d’Absence
Louis Vuitton introduced its first fragrance in 1927, at the height of the glamorous Roaring Twenties. Now, nearly a century later, the limited-edition scent (only 300 bottles were made) is set to make a comeback, although in a somewhat different form. After the original formula was lost, Louis Vuitton’s master perfumer Jacques Vavallier-Belletrud was given the special task of modernizing it. As a result, the fragrance is grand and luxurious, paying homage to the house’s opulent, globetrotting spirit. Grasse jasmine is combined with light May rose, powdery mimosa, raspberry, and Sri Lankan sandalwood to produce a memorable fragrance that will undoubtedly become one of the all-time best perfumes for women.
