The Best Everyday Fragrances

What makes ideal everyday fragrances? For us, it’s pretty straight forward. First off, our noses need to ‘agree’ on the blend of notes – in other words, we must love the scents, from top to base notes. Secondly, they shouldn’t make us feel head-achy at all. But – in the same breath – they can’t be too lightweight that they become forgetful. So, yes, longevity is a must. We want our scents to evoke feelings of sheer joy and happiness from the very first spritz. And if they’re housed in beautiful bottles, that’s a bonus. We’ve done the research (so you don’t have to) and found the easiest-wearing EDTs, EDPs and colognes that you’ll want to purchase time and time again. Enjoy!
