Just as you wear different outfits for different occasions, it’s only natural to create fragrance wardrobe to match your mood, style and schedule. Play it safe, experiment, take risks, plan for a special occasion – whatever, we’ve got you covered. Here’s our insider tips on how to build the ultimate fragrance wardrobe.


Seasonal scents:

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall  – add a scent that enriches the smell of whatever season you’re in.

Spring calls for light, citrusy, green and floral perfumes: Try Stella by ToccaEsprit d’Oscar by Oscar de la Renta or Eau De Cartier Zeste De Soleil by Cartier when spring finally picks up.

Summer is made for juicy and playful scents: Try Dark Purple by MontaleModern Muse Le Rouge by Estée Lauder or Flora by Gucci Glorious Mandarin by Gucci.

Fall is perfect to try out woody fragrances and in winter opt for a scent that is heavy and warm, with amber, musk, woody notes and sweet vanilla accords: Try Ambre 114 by Histoires de Parfums, Bamboo by Gucci or Ambre by Molinard.

Classic scents:

These are the kind of scents that everyone should own. Consider them as the classic fragrant equivalent of the timeless LBD: elegant, versatile, high quality and long lasting. Try Eau d’Hadrien by Annick GoutalNorell New York by Norell or Gold by Donna Karan.

Office vs. Evening:

Pick a subtle scent for close cubicle encounters, and a bolder fragrance for after-works drinks. Try Virgin Lily of the Valley by EB Florals by Eric Buterbaugh for a soft office scent and Minaudière Oud by Judith Leiber for after-sunset fun.


Go Indie:

Niche brands are booming in the fragrance market. Artisanal, unexpected, and unique, these fragrances will underline your fragrance know-how and smell great. Try Foxglove by JoyaTardes by Carner Barcelona or Extraordinary Tulip by Atelier Bloem for a one of a kind sensory experience.


Be wowed by a unisex scent. Try Colonia Pura by Acqua di ParmaEau Moderne by Thirdman  or  Flor y Canto by Arquiste.
