13 Fragrances Every Girl Should Have In Her Collection


What are some of your favorite fragrances? We know that every girl has one!

No matter if its shoes, lipsticks, dresses, or men—we may have a wide variety to choose from, but we’ll always have an undisputed favorite.

Fragrances are no different! You might like all kinds of scents, but you’ll typically have one (or a few!) that perfectly matches your style and temperament.

Looking for a new perfume to add to your collection? Here are 13 great fragrances to consider.

Happy by Clinique

For the “vibrant” woman.
Characterized by citrus notes and floral undertones, Happy by Clinique is reminiscent of a sunny spring day.

The powerful grapefruit scent is complemented by the softness of the Hawaiian wedding flower and the mild, yet sweet boysenberry bush flower.

This fragrance is perfect for those of you who like to keep your scent light, flirty, and fresh as opposed to mature and musky.

It pairs well with neutral scents like vanilla and shea butter and is an ideal wear for brisk mornings, casual outings, and the day-to-day. 


Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent



For the “sophisticated” woman.
There are few fragrances more seductive than Black Opium by YSL. The opening note is nothing short of sexy and sultry; It’s a strong black coffee aroma that beautifully settles into a soft vanilla scent.

In recent years, more modern notes, such as gardenia and orange blossom, have been incorporated into the classic Black Opium formula—giving it a more warm and sensual feel.

This fragrance is perfect for a night out on the town, formal evening events, or a grown and sexy nightcap with a date.


Vanilla Woods by The 7 Virtues

For the “classic” woman.
For some women, vanilla fragrances are avoided because they tend to be a tad too youthful for their age and taste.

However, Vanilla Woods by 7 Virtues uses amber and rose notes to mature classic vanilla into something that is elegant and comforting.

This fragrance has aromatherapeutic benefits that promote stress relief and relaxation, while also blending notes of pear and caramel to keep the scent sweet and inviting.

Because Vanilla Woods pairs well with stronger fragrances, it’s versatile enough to wear at work, on the weekends, and is even great for activities and events that transition from day-to-night. 


Glossier You by Glossier

For every woman. Glossier You by Glossier smells exactly like you—literally.

The fragrance was formulated using warm, cream-based notes such as musk, ambrette, and ambrox, so that it would adapt to your individual skin chemistry.

In other words, Glossier You is going to smell a little different on every woman.

The general scent, however, is quite bold and earthy;

The green iris root and pink pepper give Glossier You a woody and floral tone that is clean, neutral, and classic—but not overpowering.

This scent can be worn virtually anywhere you want, including work, post-workout, a lunch date, and even to class.

Savoir Faire’s Signature Scent

For the “powerful” woman.   
Women can do anything men can do, and Savoir Faire’s signature unisex scent proves it. Characterized by notes of leather, sandalwood, and musk, this fragrance is charming and luxurious.

While the firewood adds a masculine and earthy tone to the scent, the amber comes in like the sweet, spicy, and bold feminine touch.

Savoir Faire is best worn in professional settings, elegant weekends away, and may even be a great gift for the man in your life.
