15 Floral Fragrances For A Fresh Start To The New Year


As each new year unfurls, it brings with it the promise of fresh beginnings and renewed aspirations. It’s that time when we’re all fired up, armed with resolutions and vision boards. We renew gym memberships and vow to read more. So to help get into a vibe of fresh beginnings, here are fifteen fragrances with a bouquet of top-notch floral fragrances that are anything but ordinary.

The exciting new launch from Rare Beauty, their Find Comfort Body & Hair Fragrance Mist is a perfect example of how notes of lemon zest and smooth cashmere wood elevate the soft jasmine note. Similarly, this list of high-end perfumes goes beyond the norm of ‘stop and smell the roses.’ and is made more interesting with hints of coffee, pink peppercorn, vanilla or sandalwood.

So read on to find out your floral fragrance of the year:

HERMES Twilly D’HERMES Eau Poivree Eau De Parfum

If its ever-so-cute bottle wasn’t reason enough to grab this perfume, its vibrant scent sure is. With a dash of pink pepper, a petal of tender rose and a whiff of elegant patchouli, the Hermes Twilly D’Hermes Eau Poivree Eau De Parfum is a refreshing floral yet spicy and woody fragrance.

Carolina Herrera Good Girl Blush Eau De Parfum

Unlike the original Carolina Herrera Good Girl, the Blush Eau de Parfum variant is a fresh and floral explosion of femininity–a daytime fragrance with a sensual vanilla base and heart of Peony, Ylang Ylang, upcycled rosewater.

A very balanced fragrance with hints of lavender, sambac jasmine and vanilla, this one is everything sensual. These notes settle in seamlessly with warm sandalwood to give you a whiff of freshness.

Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Eau De Parfum

Signorina is a fresh and delicate perfume that features bright notes of currant spiced by pink pepper. It has a floral heart composed of jasmine and rose. These notes come together with the delicate sweetness of pannacotta, soft musk and Patchouli and give it a rather unexpected vibrancy.

Narciso Rodriguez For Her Forever Eau De Parfum

Narciso Rodriguez For Her Forever Eau De Parfum is a timeless perfume with fresh notes of frangipani, gardenia, jasmine, tuberose, osmanthus, the heart of musk and patchouli. So if you’re a lover of green fragrances with a little bit of gravitas, this could just be your signature scent for 2024.

Gucci Flora Gorgeous Jasmine Eau De Parfum

Although Gucci Bloom is an iconic favourite, Gucci Flora is the ultimate jasmine scent. It is a fresh floral scent featuring jasmine and magnolia accord with fruity elements of mandarin essence. It also has a woody base of sandalwood and benzoin to give it a touch of spice.

Givenchy Irresistible Rose Velvet Eau De Parfum

This fragrance is, as the name suggests, simply irresistible. At the top, it has a crackle of pink pepper that is balanced by the freshness of blackcurrant buds and neroli essence. At the heart lies four roses and at the base like patchouli. It is a floral-wood fragrance you’re bound to fall in love with, especially if you’re a fan of roses.

While Jean Paul Gaultier might be a brand famous for their sexy perfumes, So Scandal! by Jean Paul Gaultier is as fresh as it is intoxicating. It features an burst of orange blossom, jasmine and tuberose; balancing the citrusy notes with the floral ones.

Jo Malone London Peony & Blush Suede

Easily one of their most luxurious offerings is the Jo Malone London Peony & Blush Suede. Like the name itself that paints a rather calming picture, this scent has crisp notes of apple, sweet notes of rose and honey and fresh notes of peonies and jasmine; making it the sweetest scent on the list.

Chloé Eau De Parfum Naturelle

Another one that sells itself as much with its beautiful bottle as it does with its woody floral scent, the Chloé Eau De Parfum Naturelle has top notes of cedrat and raspberry, heart notes of rose and neroli, and base notes of cedar and mimosa. While the cedar and raspberry take this away from the floral family to the woody or berry family, the prominence of the rose brings the freshness right back.

Tom Ford Café Rose Eau De Parfum

The name Café Rose says it all. The scent transports you to a Parisian café surrounded by rose bushes, capturing the sensuality of rose and the burst of dark coffee. So if you’re looking for a scent to wake you up yet put you in the most relaxing mood, look no further.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau De Toilette

Marc Jacobs Daisy was the first high-end fragrance I ever bought and with good reason. It is a sophisticated yet youthful fragrance that features the femininity of daisy, the freshness of wild strawberry, violet leaves and ruby red grapefruit. It also has a heart of gardenia, violet petals and jasmine petals with an infusion of musk, vanilla infusion and white wood. In all, it is a soft and warm, sensual fragrance.

Lancome Idole Eau De Parfum

This popular fragrance has a fresh, floral and fruity fragrance with a zesty touch of bergamot–aptly depicting the spirit of modern women. It features four roses and jasmine with a hint of juicy pear and pink peppercorn.

Kayali won my heart with their Vanilla, Vanilla Coco and Sweet Diamond fragrances and now, the Deja Vu White Flower 57 Eau De Parfum has been added to that list. It opens with a burst of patchouli and settles with tuberose and sandalwood. It is a warm, sultry-white floral scent with additional notes of jasmine and gardenia. A must-have in my opinion!
