7 Perfume Options For Your Fragrance Wardrobe

Today is the commercial day of love, Valentine’s Day.

I have every intention of enjoying today, and all the days after with my love and it is my hope that you are doing whatever is pleasing and comfortable for you on a daily basis.

Now, let’s talk fragrance.

I have a huge weakness for fragrance. I find that my choice of fragrance sets the tone for the sort of day I’m looking to have. It’s been a while since I’ve had a full fragrance wardrobe and I’m working towards curating a sensory experience this year for myself. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, I have curated a fragrance wardrobe that is perfect to invest in slowly throughout the year. I’m a huge fan of conscious consumption and I always emphasise the need to think through the things you’d like to invest in, and slowly make the relevant purchases as your finances allow. Below are the fragrances I’ve chosen for my different wardrobe needs. I’m also quite keen on introducing some cleaner fragrances and I plan on doing this over time so that I can make wise investment decisions.  

Burberry Her EDP. This is a gourmand fragrance and is described as a scent for the free spirited woman. I think it’s going to be a perfect year round scent for me. The famous Francis Kurkdjain is the nose behind this fragrance. If you’re interested in this scent profile but looking for a more affordable option, consider Palermo Perfumes as they make scents inspired by an original. You can check out their Burberry inspired scent, Womens 116, here.   

Palermo Perfumes. I went down the rabbit hole of the Palermo Perfumes website as they make scents inspired by famous originals. The main thing that attracted me to the brand is that they’re free from a lot of irritants. Having looked through their collection, I’m eager to try Womens 232 inspired by Chloe eau de parfum, and Womens 518 inspired by the infamous Baccarat Rouge 540. At $35 per scent, you can’t go wrong. All their fragrances are free from parabens and phthalates

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Midnight EDP. This is easily a date night fragrance for me. Of all the flowerbomb iterations, I would say midnight is my favourite. This is a floral fragrance with top notes of blackcurrant and pomegranate. When I initially saw that pomegranate was a top note, I hesitated. Spritzing this on myself and allowing it to dry down changed my mind and made me fall in love with it. It is a seductive scent and has been recommended quite a lot by fragrance creators online and I can see why. 

Narcisco Rodriguez For Her EDP. If you’re looking for a dedicated office fragrance that isn’t heady or nauseating, check this one out. A contemporary scent with top notes of rose and peach. It’s an interesting combination and Francis Kurkdjain is one of the noses behind this scent. I would suggest the eau de parfum over the toilette version. Let me know your thoughts on this fragrance as I don’t hear about it as much as I’d love to.

Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil EDT. This is an unusual scent even for me. It’s clean and perfect for those hot summer days where the heat is just senseless but you refuse to walk out without a fragrance. The top notes are grapefruit, green mango, tomato and carrot. Prior to this find, my choice of fragrance for a hot summer day has always been L’Imperatrice by Dolce & Gabbana, modelled by Naomi Campbell. This is a great budget option with top notes of kiwi, rhubarb and pink pepper.

Ex Nihilo Fleur Narcotique EDP. This fragrance is for two types of people: those looking for a unisex fragrance, and those looking to just splurge on one fragrance only. It’s for the rich auntie (my 2023 vibe) who only wants one fragrance on her marble tray. The top notes are litchi, bergamot and peach. This scent is sophisticated, seductive, sensual and subtle all in one. 

Kai EDP. This is a floral fragrance with notes of gardenia, tuberose, jasmine, lily and tiare. I remember the first time I tried this perfume on. It reminded me of going on a walk down the Wollongong beach on a summer morning when it’s still relatively empty. It’s a laid back scent that I’d wear around the house. Yes, I like to wear a scent while lounging at home. Free from sulphates, phthalates and phosphates
