THE BEST CITRUS FRAGRANCE

One spritz of Byredo Sundazed Eau de Parfum ($265) and we’re transported to a state of summer bliss. That’s founder Ben Gorham’s masterful mélange of Californian lemon, neroli and cotton candy.

THE BEST GENDERLESS FRAGRANCE

Herbal and woody, Gucci Mémoire d’une Odeur ($120) has that alluring, “can’t quite put your finger on it” quality thanks to the blend of Roman chamomile—an ingredient never used in fragrance until now— jasmine and vanilla.

THE BEST FLORAL FRAGRANCE

An airy eau de toilette with notes of pear, lily of the valley and musk, Maison Margiela REPLICA Springtime in a Park ($130) conjures up thoughts of sitting in a fully bloomed garden under rays of warm sunshine.

THE BEST INDIE FRAGRANCE

Following the breakout success of her Lake & Skye 11 11 Fragrance Oil, founder Courtney Somer created this slightly lighter Eau de Parfum ($98), which captures the same musky, second-skin scent we’re so crazy about.

THE BEST EARTHY FRAGRANCE

Philosykos ($140) means “friend of the fig tree” in Greek, which was diptyque’s inspiration for this best-seller: a creamy, earthy aroma that has remained a signature scent for droves of fans since its launch in 1996.
