Every year we make a list of the best fragrances you should buy and this year it wouldn’t be different. A nice fragrance is a must have for any fashionista so you can be sure that we got you covered.
Things to Know
Before we jump into our list there are a couple of things you should keep in mind about fragrances.
Signature Cologne: Everyone needs to have a signature cologne but you need to choose wisely when to use because it might not be a good fit for every occasion.
Just as you would order a pina colada on a hot day by the pool and maybe a martini on an elegant date at night, you should do the same with your fragrances.
Choose two of your favorite ones; one lighter for the day and a little bit stronger at night.
Less is More: I know you have that fragrance you love and you use all the time but nobody needs to smell you from a distance.
You also should know about the strength of your perfume. Do you know how to differentiate the strength of your perfume? here is a nice way to see it:
So as you can see there’s a big difference between the Eau de Toilette, which is one of the most popular sellers, and the Eau de Parfum for example.
Because of the low concentration of oils, usually, the EDT fragrance doesn’t last as much as the ADP and Parfum. So you might getter a better price for it but certainly not the same quality.
Remember that many popular brands make the same fragrance in Eau de Toilette and also in Parfum form.
Usually, famous perfumers like Maison Francis Kurkdjian focus on creating high-quality perfumes in EDP form using sophisticated scents, like oud for example.
Maison Francis has been one of my favorites perfume brands for a while so we will start with his:
Maison Francis KurkdjianBaccarat Rouge 540 Extrait
The Baccarat Rouge 540 extrait de parfum augments the strength and radiance of the fragrance’s amber woody floral aura. In this exalted version of a signature scent, jasmine blossoms and woody musks engage in an alchemy of the senses. A profusion and fusion of the elements that can only be tamed by the art of the perfumer and time-tested wisdom.
TOM FORD Ombré Leather Eau de Parfum
Freedom comes from within, the desert heart of the West wrapped in leather. It moves forward, untethered, through the still air of wide-open space. Dust on wind, skin on skin, Ombré Leather reveals itself like a landscape in layers, where stretches of rock transform into sunrise blonde low on the horizon.
