Sometimes even the best antiperspirant or deodorant can’t cover body odor if you are prone to excessive sweating. Luckily, perfumes and fragrances come in a wide variety of scents made for every occasion, and there’s nothing better than finding a new signature scent. Whether you want to feel date-ready or just energized for a workday, the right scent can help you feel confident, relax, and put some pep in your step.
Here is a list of some of the most popular fragrances for men and women:
1. Hugo for Men by Hugo Boss
With a light and fresh scent, this fragrance will add a great smell to your day while also boosting your confidence. Hugo features top notes of bergamot, lemon, neroli, and lavender that give off a fresh and energizing aroma. The middle notes consist of ginger, clary sage, orange flower, and geranium that provide an aromatic scent that is perfect for the office. The base notes of ambergris leave an exotic smell that lingers on your skin all day long.
2. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau de Parfum
A favorite among celebrities and fashionistas, this perfume is a bestseller in the world of fragrances. It has a dark, sensual scent that can be worn day or night, with opening notes of coffee and vanilla that eventually soften into the aroma of white flowers. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau de Parfum is perfect for women looking for that extra boost of confidence.
3. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum Spray
Flowerbomb was voted as one of the best perfumes for women by Cosmopolitan Magazine. This perfume is light with a touch of floral notes, including cattleya, jasmine, and rose, that are subtle but still noticeable. It is grounded by the scents of patchouli and vanilla. Carrying on the feminine theme, the bottle is a delicate pink. But don’t worry if you don’t like perfume bottles that are too frilly — despite its girly color, the bottle itself adds some edge with its distinctive grenade shape.
4. La Nuit De L’Homme
This fragrance is perfect for the confident man. It’s a woody scent with some fruitiness to it, with notes of cardamom, cedar, and coumarin, which makes it perfect for work or an evening out. The bottle is sleek and classic, just like you would expect from Yves Saint Laurent.
5. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Parfum Spray
This classic fragrance from Chanel is a timeless scent that smells sweet and fresh. Coco Mademoiselle was created in 2001 by the design house of Chanel. The top notes in this great fragrance are aldehyde, peach, and red berry. It also has a rich floral heart with jasmine and narcissus at its center. At the base of it all is a sensual blend of musk, sandalwood, ambergris, and vanilla that leaves you smelling sexy and feminine.
6. Sauvage by Dior
No list of best fragrances would be complete without mentioning the Dior Sauvage. This masculine scent is made for men, but some women may like it. It is described as a woody, citrus fragrance with some floral notes. The first thing you will notice about this scent is that it smells fresh and clean. The citrus notes come out instantly when you spray the fragrance on your skin. However, there are also floral scents mixed in with the citrus to give you a more balanced smell; the floral scents are not overpowering, and they complement the citrus notes nicely. Sauvage by Dior is an ideal scent, versatile for everyday wear.
