Certain fragrances have a way of transporting you to a fond memory of traveling with friends to a tropical destination or just a specific moment that makes you feel all warm and cozy. Whatever the case, it’s nice sometimes to get whisked away, even if it’s just in your head — especially after how 2020 ended up. With a fresh year upon us, we’ve found that more people are starting to revert back to their regular routines of dressing up and putting on makeup, even if they are staying home.
While I am often allergic to certain fragrances found in skin-care and hair-care products, I’ve found myself reaching for a favorite perfume lately just to make my sweatsuit feel a little fancier or lighting a candle in the room to change the mood. (Right now, I’m currently obsessed with all of Byredo perfumes and Boy Smells candles.) With so many new fragrances hitting the market in 2021, I was curious to learn which ones beauty insiders are leaning on the most this year.
With this in mind, I reached out to editors, influencers, and beauty experts to see which scent is bringing them happiness right now. Read on to see what they had to say and shop their picks ahead.
