Don't Want a Signature Scent? Try a Fragrance Wardrobe Instead

The idea of having a signature scent is undeniably glamorous. Only ever wearing the same fragrance so that it acts as an olfactory soundtrack to your entire life? Chic. (The thought of an ex-lover catching a wisp of perfume on the breeze and thinking longingly of you is the stuff rom coms are made of.) Thing is, for all its cool-girl cred, a signature scent can be restrictive. After all, relying on a single fragrance to work with your every mood is a big ask. So why not curate a fragrance wardrobe instead? Having a few perfume styles on hand allows you to tap into however you're feeling on any given day. Here are five staple scents to consider.

1. something clean & fresh

These are the scents to reach for when you don’t have time to think. Look for bright citrus, grassy green notes and breezy aquatic accords. Uplifting and light, they work for everything from brunch to a business meeting.
