For lasting impressions, try…

Kilian Love, Don't be Shy
Kilian
Love, Don’t be Shy
£185

Fragrance Family: Floral

Key Notes: Orange blossom, vanilla, luscious marshmallow

This scent seriously smells like candy. How that’s possible, I’m not so sure, but just know that Kilian is the Willy Wonka of the perfume game. This is Rihanna’s known favourite scent, and we all know our favourite bad gyal would not waste her time re-applying a short-lived scent.

Byredo Mojave Ghost Eau de Parfum
Byredo
Mojave Ghost Eau de Parfum
£122

Fragrance Family: Woody

Key Notes: Chantilly musk, crisp amber, cedarwood, violet, sandalwood, magnolia, ambrette, Jamaican nesberry

You don’t need to have spent time exploring the Mojave Desert to appreciate the sweet and woody aromatic throw of this scent. It’s not an overpowering fragrance, but it will live on the skin for hours.

Heretic Florgasm
Heretic
Florgasm
£150
£45

Fragrance Family: Floral

Key Notes: Jasmine, tuberose, orange blossom

Florals can read “grandma”, and although we’re big fans of matriarchs, we’re not so into the powdery, potpourri vibe in our fragrance. This flower-forward scent from Heretic just smells rich. Oh, and the name is really good.

D.S. & Durga Rose Atlantic
D.S. & Durga
Rose Atlantic
£148

Fragrance Family: Floral

Key Notes: Bergamot, petals, lemon oil, linden, rose accord, dune grass, muscone, saltwater, white moss

This zesty floral is so much more than your typical rose scent. It’s clean, spicy, and salty, too. It’ll absolutely leave an indelible impression on anyone who gets a whiff. 

Parfums de Marly Delina Eau de Parfum
Parfums de Marly
Delina Eau de Parfum
£230

Fragrance Family: Floral

Key Notes: Rhubarb, lychee, Turkish rose, vanilla, cashmere wood, musk

The only thing better than a bouquet of Turkish rose, lily of the valley and peony is a fragrance that encompasses all of those vibrant florals. Then consider the tangy fruit notes, woods and frankincense and you’ve got yourself a full-bodied, all day kind of fragrance.

This musky, vanilla accord-based scent is the kind of fragrance that completely envelops the senses and leaves everyone wondering about the woman wearing that gorgeous perfume. Be prepared for endless compliments.

Up next, every woman needs at least one Chanel perfume—these are the five best ever.
