When you’re on a budget:
Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream is a fan favourite on TikTok and not just because it comes in a seriously cute bottle. It’s described as light and airy, with notes of florals and fruits like blackberry, pear and grapefruit, making it smell young and sophisticated at the same time.
Ariana Grande Cloud is cute, fruity and perfect for your first signature scent. It literally has a little bit of everything going on, from raspberry, to rose buds, to marshmallow, orchid vanilla and even blonde woods. Plus, Ari made it so it’s bound to be amazing.
When you have cash to burn:
Giorgio Armani My Way is super fancy and guaranteed to win you a few compliments when you wear it. Feminine notes of tuberose and jasmine, orange blossom and cedarwood make up this iconic fragrance, and yeah, we want a bottle right now please.
Gucci Bloom Acqua Di Fiori blends galbanum and dainty cassis buds into a unique, elevated fragrance that will make you feel like that girl (if you know, you know). It helps that the bottle is gorgeous and will look amazing on your bedside table or vanity. Plus, it’s Gucci.
When you want something classic:
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium may be pricey, but if everyone on TikTok is to be believed, this scent is worth the price tag. Coffee and vanilla make up the opening notes, but then the fragrance shifts into a more floral bouquet, and it’s totally addictive.
Givenchy L'Interdit another pricey one, this perfume has some seriously unique notes mixed in. Think bergamot, orange blossom, patchouli and a bunch more we can’t even pronounce. This is definitely the kind of fragrance a girl who has her life together wears.

When you want to smell like a celeb:
Ari By Ariana Grande is another cult favourite from the pint-sized singer, and we’re obsessed with its base of musk, woods and marshmallow. It was her OG perfume, so the fact that it’s still so popular now means it’s a winner.
Britney Spears Fantasy has to be one of the most well-known celebrity perfumes, and for good reason. It’s sweet like cupcakes, it’s fruity like red lychee and it comes in a hot pink, bedazzled bottle that’s so Y2K chic – plus it’s affordable. Thanks Britney!
When you’re feeling ultra-feminine:
Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Eau So Sweet comes in the most aesthetically pleasing bottle we’ve ever seen. If that’s not enough to convince you that you need this perfume ASAP, just think about smelling like white raspberries, daisies, jasmine and sugared musks – you’ll literally smell like a snack.
Chloè Signature Eau de Parfum is still popular years after it was first released because it’s one of the ultimate feminine scents. Hints of peony, lychee and springtime freesia come together for a light, flirty fragrance you’ll never want to stop wearing.
When you want something special:
Creed Spring Flower was originally created as a signature scent for none other than Audrey Hepburn, which makes it uber special. The scent wasn’t released to the public until years after Audrey started wearing it and features floral and fruity notes; think jasmine, rose, peach and melon.
Ouai Melrose Place isn’t crazy expensive, but it’s super hard to get your hands on because it’s such a cult classic! With citrusy, fruity and floral scents – plus super cute packaging – it’s almost always sold out at Sephora. Definitely wishlist this one for the next restock!
