Smelling good is an art. You need to find the one for you – the kind that complements your skin, body and overall personality. A fragrance is almost like an identity. Many are known for their signature scents. While there are a plethora of choices, one needs to be mindful while choosing a fragrance.
For example, we now know that the office calls for subtle perfumes whereas a night out with friends demands a zesty fragrance. For family gatherings, social get-togethers or another daytime soiree where you want to bring out a comfortable vibe, think fresh fragrances. Fresh fragrances are usually citrusy, juicy notes whereas there are those water notes that’ll remind you of the beach and waves. There are fragrances inspired by nature too, the kind that smells like fresh grass and blooming flowers.
As we mentioned, there’s a lot to choose from. But don’t you worry. We’ve narrowed down the list to our top favourites that we promise won’t disappoint.

A ready reckoner to choose your fragrance
- Citrus – These are light and fresh fragrances derived from oranges, lemons, mandarins, and bergamots, and make for a perfect summertime spritz.
- Earthy – These are notes of cinnamon, sandalwood, vanilla, and honey

- Woody – These notes are strong and powerful like oak wood, cedar wood, and patchouli. They work well as evening wear.
Fragrances are more than scents. They are a part of you, almost like a scent defines you. It lingers with memories, emotions and so much more. So, choose one that you connect with, the kind when you take a whiff, you know it’s ‘the one’. We hope this list makes it easier for you. We’ll leave you with a pro-tip – apply petroleum jelly on your pulse points and then spray your perfume. It will last longer. So, here’s to looking good, smelling good and feeling absolutely great!
