Tom Ford

Tom Ford's Black Orchid Eau de Toilette is known as one of the most luxurious, decadent, fragrances of all time. A little goes a long way here. This fragrance is unisex and has notes of black truffle, bergamot, black orchid and black plum.


Guerlain

The fragrance has notes of jasmine, lavender, and vanilla.  Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum was inspired by Angelina Jolie so it is super sexy.


Marc Jacobs

You look good -- might as well smell good, too!

REGULARLY $82

Carolina Herrera
Carolina Herrera Good Girl
Nordstrom

The sweet-yet-sensual Good Girl from Carolina Herrera is an intoxicating blend of jasmine, cocoa, tonka bean, almond, coffee and tuberose, all wrapped up in a striking stiletto heel bottle.

Mugler

Quite possibly the most divisive perfume ever created, you either love Angel or you don’t -- there’s really no in between. It’s the epitome of a gourmand fragrance and is meant to remind you of childhood innocence with notes that mimic the scents of cotton candy and chocolates. Wrapped up amidst the jasmine, vanilla, caramel, berries and honey is an accord of patchouli that adds a grown-up edge to all that sweetness.


100BON

If you like your fragrances on the earth-friendly side, then you’ll love this surprisingly affordable unisex French import. With sustainable packaging, refillable bottles, natural ingredients and no petrochemicals, it’s the green way to go. Our favorite is this it-shouldn’t-work-but-it-so-does mix of ginger, green tea and jasmine sambac.


Marc Jacobs

This Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Eau de Toilette Spray is 56% off retail price, while supplies last.

REGULARLY $96

Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez Promise
Ulta
Jennifer Lopez

If there’s one thing J.Lo knows, it’s how to make a great scent. (Her Glow by J.Lo perfume started the celebrity fragrance craze way back in 2002.) Her latest perfume is a little more sophisticated -- think notes of tangerine, berries, pear, jasmine sambac, honeysuckle and wood. 


Chanel

If No. 5 is the essence of Chanel, Coco Mademoiselle is what she would have worn in her younger, more free-spirited years. Top notes of orange keep it fresh, while patchouli and bourbon vanilla give it a warm richness.


Tory Burch

Tory Burch Eau de Parfum Spray comes in 1.7 Fluid ounces and is the perfect summer perfume. It is filled with fiery spicy note of soft moss, sweet vanilla and milk. This perfume is also 60% off so get it while you can!

Floral Street
Floral Street Neon Rose
Sephora
Floral Street

Another eco-friendly fragrance line, this U.K.-born brand features compostable boxes, sustainably-sourced ingredients and some of the most spectacularly beautiful (and recyclable!) bottles we’ve ever laid eyes on. Our favorite, Neon Rose, blends rose and jasmine with bergamot, Sichuan pepper and pear for a fresh take on the classic fruity floral perfume.


Burberry
Burberry Her Eau de Parfum
Nordstrom
Burberry

Burberry's Her Eau de Parfum is a vibrant fruity fragrance with notes of blackcurrant, jasmine, violet and musk.

Marc Jacobs

This adorable eau de toilette from Marc Jacobs is as sweet as the name suggests thanks to raspberries, crystallized cloudberries, daisy tree petals, jasmine milk and sugar musk. Housed in a quirky flower flaçon, it will bring instant cheerfulness and positivity to any vanity.


Givenchy
Givenchy L'Interdit Eau de Parfum
Nordstrom
Givenchy

Givenchy L'Interdit Eau de Parfum by Givenchy is a bold and woody floral scent -- which a little goes a long way. The best part is that this Givenchy scent lasts for hours without having to reapply it.

Kayali
Kayali Musk 12
Huda Beauty
Kayali

Kayali Musk 12 contains notes of musk, lotus flower, freesia, and sheer jasmine. Perfume influencer Jeremy Fragrance said about Kayali, “[This scent makes me] want to have sex.” That is all we need to hear.


Nue Co.
Nue Co. Functional 
Net-a-Porter
Nue Co.

This stress-relieving fragrance was created by scientists and wellness experts to help you be calm and reset. And though it’s supposed to be therapeutic, it doesn’t smell like crunchy granola aromatherapy oils -- it’s composed of a delightful blend of iris, green cardamom and cilantro. It smells a lot better than any yoga class or meditation session we’ve been to, that’s for sure.


Kilian
Kilian Rolling in Love
Bloomingdale's
Kilian

This is a heady blend of layered white florals -- gardenia, tuberose, rose and orange blossom -- combined with almond milk, iris, musk and ambrette seeds. The result: an addictive unique eau de parfum that will have everyone asking, “What are you wearing?”


The Beautiful Mind Series
Beautiful Mind Series
Lucky Scent
The Beautiful Mind Series

The legendary perfumer behind this unique scent looked to famed ballet dancer Polina Semionova as his inspiration. Meant to evoke the precision, strength and grace required of a modern ballerina, it features fruity notes of pear, plum and mandarin, alongside lush florals jasmine, rose, violet and freesia -- plus sensuous sandalwood to add depth.
