Confession: I’m a fragrance polygamist. In all my 31 years, I’ve never found a signature scent, and I have a feeling I never will. And you know what? I’m okay with that. It turns out it’s really hard to find one bottle that encompasses all of my personality. Sometimes I wake up with tons of energy. Other days, I wake up feeling down. And sometimes I just need a confidence boost. So just like my outfits, my scent really needs to align with how I’m feeling on any given day.
For me, perfume has always been an accessory: an extension of my style or mood, a finishing touch to an outfit, and a way for me to express myself without having to speak. Though when a fragrance is good—like so good it grabs my husband’s attention—it almost always sparks conversation. So I decided to do just that and ask my husband for his reviews of the 11 fragrances that make him do a “double sniff.” Did he love them? Hate them? Keep scrolling to get the tea.
