Happy International Fragrance Day! Yes, it’s a holiday and a big one at that. If you’re a perfume lover, you probably have a vanity filled with scents to suit your different moods and the changing of the seasons. There are tons of options to choose from whether you’re looking for something fruity, with floral notes or a warming musky scent.
However, if you’re looking for something a bit more unconventional, there are interesting scents for you too. You just have to know where to find them. Want a scent that reminds you have the rain? What about one that feeds into your coffee and tea addiction? You can actually get both options and more.
Check out eight unique fragrances that are different from you usual perfumes:
You know the smell of rain? You can now get it in bottle form courtesy of this eau de toilette. Notes of wet cut grass, sparkling strawberry, passion flower and tree moss ensure that it doesn’t smell like your wet jacket.
Mugler doesn’t follow the pack when it comes to fashion and fragrances. This perfume packs a serious punch with bold notes. Add in the fact that comes with a gorgeous refillable bottle and you will see why it’s worth the splurge.
Be transported to a jazz club without leaving your current surroundings. Maison Margiela’s Replica fragrances are abut scents that recall different places. In this case, the notes of pink pepper, tobacco leaf absolute and vanilla bean bring to mind a Brooklyn jazz club.
Jo Malone is a master at blending ingredients that you might not think would work together to create gorgeous scents. Case in point: This earl grey and cucumber cologne. It has become a new classic thanks to the refreshing mix against the vanilla and beeswax base.
You know from the name that this is something special. What makes it so different, you ask? Why that would be the fact it is composed of one note: cetalox. It’s something that’s normally used as a base note, but here it takes center stage. If you think that means it’s not going to be complex, think again.
Clean’s iconic namesake fragrance is a classic. Ditto with oud. However, this scent is a bit different thanks to the “reverse sueded” part. It has a “creamy” scent thanks to the mix of textures. Unique notes include red pimento, suede, praline and blue cyprus.
This isn’t the sort of name you expect in fragrances. A few squirts will have you convinced that death and decay can actually smell quite lovely especially when notes of vanilla, rose, ylang ylang and tonka bean are involved.
Demeter is known for its unique scents and this one is the perfect example. It’s one of the latest additions to Demeter’s offering and it’s something that will please cat lovers. It’s difficult to describe, but if you give it a whiff, you will recognize that comforting, warming smell. Meow.
