Feel good fragrances
Smell good, feel good: 12 joyful and genderless perfumes
Thumbsucker Eau de Parfum
It would be easy to get so distracted by the packaging of Stora Skuggan’s Thumbsucker that you forget to actually smell it. That, however, would be a fatal error. A sweet scent with an underlying bitterness, it makes for a fascinating olfactory experience.
Acqua Neroli Eau De Parfum
Kindly unclench your jaw. Struggling? Well, in that case you might need to douse yourself in Clean Reserve’s Acqua Neroli. With notes of neroli blossom, jasmine flower and bergamot, it’s a Mediterranean breeze in a bottle. The perfect excuse to relax, really.
What if there was a fragrance that made you smell like you (but better) as opposed to someone else? Well, there is: Glossier’s – aptly named – You. From the pink pepper to the earthy ambrette seeds, it’s a warm and inviting scent that smells different on everyone who wears it.
VANILJ EAU DE PARFUM
Vanilla is one of the most familiar scents in the world, which might almost make it seem a bit boring. Maya Njie’s Vanilij, however, is not remotely boring. Largely because the vanilla in it is combined with cardamom (as well as cedarwood, patchouli, musk and amber) for a distinctly Swedish vibe.
05 EAU DE PARFUM
LA brand DedCool was founded to honour Carina Chaz’s love of masculine scents, and Fragrance 05 does exactly that. Made entirely from organic and vegan ingredients, its blend of star anise, bergamot and moss is a boyish dream, that anyone can wear.
