The Best Fragrances of 2017
Your scent is what those around you encounter when you enter the room and when you leave it. It has the ability to complement your personality, make you feel confident, and draw everyone’s attention. That’s why Southern women love to find their signature scent early, and stick faithfully to it. That’s doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate dabbling in new, fresh scents depending on our mood or season, though. This year, we’ve narrowed down the best fragrances to these five mesmerizing, completely unique scents that are guaranteed to capture the room.
Best Classic Fragrance
Buy It: Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette Spray, $100; macys.com
This scent is a classic because it’s perfectly fresh, feminine, and floral with a vintage edge. It has the timeless, elegant feel of our favorite classic fragrances, but features fresh, light violet and jasmine notes with a subtle fruity touch to give a youthful crispness.
Best Warm and Spicy Fragrance
Buy It: Prada Candy Gloss, $96; bloomingdales.com
With hints of cherry, peach, rose, and musk, this warm feminine fragrance is aimed towards the sophisticated, cultured woman. It’s savory, spicy, and sweet at the same time.
Best New Fragrance
Buy It: Paco Rabanne Olympéa Intense Eau de Parfum Spray, $106; sephora.com
This sultry fragrance is getting a lot of praise for its salty-vanilla notes with hints of deep amber. Inspired for the “modern-day goddess,” it is a scent that speaks to the confident, driven woman.
Best Fragrance Mist
Buy It: Vera Wang Embrace Green Tea and Pear Blossom Fine Fragrance Mist, $10; kohls.com
This fragrance is the perfect choice for those who love a light scent that’s subtle enough to seem natural and effortless. The fresh, crisp notes of green tea, pear, peony, orange blossom, and sandalwood come together for a comforting mist.
Best Light and Crisp Fragrance
Buy It: Kate Spade Live Colorfully Eau de Parfum Spray, $98; nordstrom.com
We can’t get enough of this fun, bold packaging; but the crisp fragrance stands on its own just fine too! This is for the lighthearted, life-of-the-party lady who brings some color to any room. A mix of florals, citrus, musk, and coconut water, this scent is complex and rich—the perfect balance of loud and soft.
