A Different Scent For Every Event

When you think about fragrance, think of it in the same terms as you do your closet. Just as there are different outfits for different occasions, you should also have a perfume wardrobe that suits your various commitments and moods. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t have a signature scent, but consider that your general go-to. To get you started, we’ve broken down the different perfumes you’ll need for varying circumstances.

Hot Date: Harvey Prince, Eau Flirt

Just as important as a killer outfit and makeup, the perfume your wear on a date really sets the tone. Which is why you should choose something flirtatious and a smidgen seductive. Harvey Prince’s Flirt is carefree and fresh, but has also been strategically formulated with pumpkin and lavender, two aromas proven to arouse amorous reactions from men. Whether or not that’s the case, we love the scent.

Ladies Night: kate spade new york, Twirl

When it’s just the girls, pick a cheerful fragrance like kate spade’s Twirl. Feminine and oh so fun, this fruity floral matches your happy vibe. Put this on and you’ll be ready to have a good time.

Work Day: Serge Lutens, Nuit de Cellophane

Finding a good work scent is tricky. You want to avoid anything that’s too youthful or sexy or overpowering. The solution? Turn to a refined scent that lingers ever so slightly, like Serge Lutens’s Nuit de Cellophane. It’s floral, but has notes of sandalwood and musk that add a sophisticated element — the perfect accessory to your tailored suit.

Weekend Errands: Joie, folle de joie eau de parfum

The weekend is finally here and you have a gazillion errands to run. Aside from a good cup of coffee, you need a fresh—not overpowering—scent. Our current favorite is Joie’s Folle de Joie eau de parfum with its flirty blend of citrus and spices. Crisp and zesty, just one spritz and you’ll feel an instantly ready to take on the day—and your massive heap of laundry.

Special Event: Salvatore Ferragamo, Attimo L’Eau Florale

You’ve already put on your favorite party dress, your most stylish stilettos, and a very on trend shade of lipstick; you’re almost ready to head out to the door to that special event. The finishing touch is a dash of an alluring fragrance. Perfect for a cocktail party or a black tie ball, Salvatore Ferragamo’s Attimo L’Eau Florale is ladylike floral scent with notes of frangipani flower, patchouli, and white musk.
