diptyque - Do Son

Since we're transitioning to spring, I recently started wearing Do Son from diptyque, which is really just full-on jasmine. Cue Meryl Streep: "Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking." But it really is so lovely and fresh! - Arianna Sooshani, Social Media Manager

Courrèges - C

When Courrèges opened its flagship store in SoHo, New York last fall, I left the shop with one thing: its C perfume. C — which stands for Courrèges, of course — is the brand's "universal fragrance" with notes of clean laundry, jasmine, and musky ambrox. C is a unique, one-of-a-kind find that I haven't smelled elsewhere. Not to mention, their bottles are so chic and sculptural! - YJ Lee, Senior Features Editor

Maison Margiela - REPLICA By The Fireplace

Margiela's REPLICA fragrance line includes some of the most unique and versatile perfumes on the market today. By the Fireplace is a warm and inviting pick that is perfect for chilly weather. - Sam Knoll, Fashion Market Editor

Le Dieu Bleu - Astier de Villatte

A collaboration between Astier de Villatte founders Ivan Pericoli and Benoît Astier de Villatte, master perfumer Dominique Ropion, and perfume historian Annick Le Guérer, Le Dieu Bleu is a contemporary reimagining of "Kyphi," a sacred fragrance used in ancient Egyptian rituals and ceremonies. True to Kyphi's honeyed, herbaceous scent, Le Dieu Bleu is at once sweet, spicy, and fresh — intoxicating! - Alexandra Pauly, Beauty Editor

Aoud Flowers - Montale Paris

Honestly, I love an oud. Florals too. I’m preferential for a unisex scent, too, which makes Montale’s Aoud Flowers perfect; it checks all three boxes. Like Marmite, the fragrance divides people. I respect that — an every man scent is an easy option, whereas Aoud Flowers is (for me, at least) memorable. - Sam Cole, Style Writer

Kafka On The Shore - Folie à Plusieurs

Named after the famous novel by Haruki Murakami, this fragrance features a main accord of old books. But don’t let that scare you — it’s a sweet, iris-forward fragrance that comes off more powdery than book-y. If you want a bottle with some aesthetic value, Folie à Plusieurs is for you as each flacon is hand painted. - Mike Seegers, Instagram Manager

Asphalt Rainbow - Charenton Macerations

As a fragrance neophyte, I was charmed by how quickly I took to Charenton Macerations' Asphalt Rainbow. I like scents that are wearable but a little weird and this one, with notes of rose, saffron, leather, and spray paint (!) does the trick. Full credit to our Beauty Editor, Alex, for introducing me to this one. - Jake Silbert, News Editor

Mon Paris - YSL

Mon Paris by YSL was one of the first “big girl” scents I wore after graduating from mall staple body mists, so it will always be a personal fave. I love that it’s sweet and fresh without being too overpowering. - Cierra Black, Writers Fellow
