5 Fragrances to Wear Year Round

While there are some fragrances that I tend to be drawn to during certain seasons, I try to find scents that can easily be worn year-round. Fragrances are definitely something that I splurge on as a little goes a long way and they can last quite a while (so long as you keep them out of direct sunlight). I thought I'd share with you the five most frequently used fragrances in my collection - and yes, I actually do rotate through all of these!


My all-time favorite scent has to be Chloe Eau de Parfum. This is my all-time favorite scent and one I even dub it as my signature scent. I've always been the type of person that uses one scent and really gets stuck on using it as it's just a nostalgic scent that really makes you feel like you. This one has notes of peony, rose, honey, and cedarwood which translates beautifully on me - and honestly I love it on every person I've smelled it on. This is one you can't go wrong with! I just finished up yet another bottle and have cracked open a spanking new bottle.

Moving along with another 'sweet'-esque scent is the Diptyque Eau Rose. This is one I actually sort of bought on a whim a while back. I had seen it at Nordstrom each time I went and sniffed candles and after sniffing it a few times and spraying it on myself, I could not get it out of my head. After walking around the mall and circling back to Nordstrom, I ended up picking the bottle up and it's one I still love reaching for. Obviously this one has notes of rose, but it's also accompanied by bergamot, blackcurrant, lychee, geranium, white musk, cedar, and honey.

Another scent that I fell in love with was Diptyque Philosykos. My favorite candle from Diptyque has to be Figuier, and the corresponding fragrance happened to be Philosykos - it was meant to be. This one was different than anything I ever tried and was a bit woodsy and unisex. This one is a very fresh scent but is also one that I think mixes beautifully with my Chloe EDP. This one has notes of fig tree leaf & wood, white cedar, and musk.


I've been dreaming of owning a Byredo scent for a while - largely due to the minimalistic packaging. Everyone who owns a Byredo fragrance goes on about how incredible they are - so that also tempted me. Since these ones are super pricey, I highly recommend getting samples and really testing these ones out. These ones were only available "near" me at Neiman Marcus which was quite a distance away from me. Since I didn't get a chance to sniff it every time I went to the mall, I really needed to take it home and think about it in the long run. I ended up going with Bal d'Afrique which was inspired by Paris (my favorite city) with a mixture of African culture, art, and music. Swoon. This one has notes of bergamot, jasmine, violet, cedarwood, musk, and vetiver. I found myself reaching for this a ton during Fall/Winter as it just smells cozy but refreshing.


The last one up is Glossier You. This is one that was released towards the end of last year and is one that I frequently find myself reaching for. Since Glossier isn't widely available in stores, it isn't exactly a scent that every person walking around has. That sort of makes me excited to wear it because I've gotten a ton of compliments while out and about because it's a scent that people also do not come across often. Honestly I'm so glad I gave this one a chance because it isn't one that I thought that I would like. But it wears so well on me and is one that I can smell on my jacket days after I sprayed it. This one has notes of iris root, pink pepper, and musk.

Sometimes listing out all the notes of your favorite fragrances really helps you understand what scents you truly like! Having listed all of these out, I can clearly see that white musk, cedar, and rose tend to be among my favorites. Even the occasional mention of honey! What are some of your favorite fragrances to reach for year round?
