Chanel N°5 Eau De Perfume
If you’ve only heard of one fragrance on this list, it’s most likely Chanel No. 5. Created in 1921 and worn by Marilyn Monroe herself, it’s one of the most iconic scents on the list only for $146.
Dior J’adore Eau De Parfum
The beautiful bottle alone is enough to make us love Dior’s iconic J’adore perfume—but there’s so much more to it. Created in 1999 by French master perfumer Calice Becker—the nose behind some of the industry’s most-loved fragrances—it has a complex blend of notes that creates an aroma like no other for just $138.
Byredo Mojave Ghost Eau De Parfum
Paying homage to the rare Mojave Ghost flower, this cool-girl pick isn’t your typical floral perfume. Combining Chantilly musk, amber, cedarwood, sandalwood, magnolia, and Jamaican naseberry, it’s more woody than sweet and perfect for evenings for $270.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau De Toilette
Though its name and bottle may give off a youthful vibe, Daisy practically smells like sophistication. With a blend of wild strawberry, violet, gardenia, and jasmine, it has an unexpected feel that’s equal parts fresh, feminine, and fruity for just $108.
Le Labo Santal 33 Eau De Parfum
With notes of violet, accord, cardamom, iris, and ambrox, Le Labo’s Santal 33 is a true icon. Woody and smoky but somehow still gentle, it’s the kind of perfume that always stands out in a crowd. It’s also unisex, so it’s made for everyone for just $196.
