11 Floral Perfumes that are Bound to be Instant Classics
The newest fragrances you need on your vanity.
There’s no better time to switch up your signature scent than the start of the new year. As the saying goes: New year, new fragrance, new you. Still, shopping for a signature scent is a difficult undertaking—after all, you can’t be associated with just anything.
That’s why we’ve rounded up the best new fragrances we know you’ll love. As you browse, keep in mind the season’s hottest trend: elegant florals. While unisex fragrances reigned supreme these past few seasons, newer fragrances are indicative of a strong countermovement toward distinctly feminine scents. And at under $200 each, these sophisticated picks are the perfect choice for an affordable piece of luxury.
