The 28 Best-Smelling Body Oils Bound to Get Compliments featured image
Kopari & Tree Hut

We love using body oils as skin care all year round because they give us a gorgeous glow and promote hydration a step beyond other moisturizing products like your basic body lotion. While we’re at it, we figure, why not use the best smelling body oils out there? In the summer body oils provide a good radiance and in the winter they’re amazing for adding moisture to dry skin.

Find your favorite body oil scent

Body oils are especially good to fold into your routine in the winter months when skin gets a bit drier, and we yearn for the best cozy or energizing scents to get us through the darker days. In the summer we tend want all our skin care to have a more lightweight texture, our oil products included, and we’re not afraid to lean into the best bright, beachy scents we love. We’ve gathered a handful of our favorite scented body oils, some of which also have amazing stretch mark-fighting and skin tightening benefits.

Scented body oils all our editors love

Whether you want to layer these body oils with moisturizer or wear a dry oil on its own, one thing you can definitely skip is perfume because these scents will linger long after you leave the house. We’ve rounded up some of the best body oils that our nose adores just as much as our skin.
