These 7 Rich Girl Perfumes Will Leave You Smelling Like A Million Bucks

rich girl perfume

Whenever conversations are sparked on perfumes, we always talk about them invoking feelings of nostalgia. As a fragrance lover, I enjoy leaving behind a trail of scent, it makes me feel attractive. The vain part of me enjoys the exciting compliments I receive whenever I wear Black Opium by YSL or Guilty by Gucci. However, apart from smelling sexy, lately, I’ve been enjoying smelling rich. Blame it on the quiet luxury hangover that Succession left us with or on Sofia Richie-Grainge for making us want to live the rich girl life.

While purchasing a vintage Maison Margiela or Chanel may not be the best financial decision for most of us, getting your hands on iconic scents from these houses that exude sophistication is an investment. Let’s be honest, a few spritzes of intense leather, decadent cherries and boozy patchouli are luxurious. If you’re looking to smell like a million bucks, we’ve got you covered with our favourite picks.

Easily one of their most opulent offerings till now, Oud and Bergamot from Jo Malone is a powerful scent. As the name suggests, citrusy notes of bergamot balance out the intensity of the oud while cedarwood and orange add a hint of playfulness.

If you always steered clear from floral scents because of their ability to be overpowering, Kayali’s Deja Vu White Flower 57 will convince you otherwise. It opens with an exciting burst of patchouli followed by dreamy white florals encompassing gardenia and jasmine. If Sofia Richie-Grainge was a scent, she’d be this one.

Tom Ford, Soleil Blanc

Dreaming of a luxurious tropical getaway? Tom Ford’s Soleil Blanc does a stellar job of transporting you to a dreamy beach. A succulent and creamy scent, this one opens up with a mix of spicy notes of cardamom and pink pepper. It slowly mixes with the softness of tuberose and the creaminess of coconut to give you an aroma of mornings spent at an Italian beach.

Jean Paul Gaultier, Scandal

While most may categorise Jean Paul Gaultier’s Scandal as a rebellious, sexy scent it also crosses over to the luxurious side of things. A fruity fragrance which opens up with delectable honey that blends with patchouli and orange, Scandal will leave you smelling like a bold heiress.
