I've come to the realization that, I really love my collection of designer perfumes from houses like Chanel and Dior. They're not predictable or basic; they're classic. And more often than not, it's these fragrances that rack in the compliments faster than my olfactory coven of non-designer labels. In fact, I've noticed a designer-perfume resurgence of sorts on social media, so here I am calling an official comeback. Keep scrolling for the designers I love most and the top two scents I'd recommend from each.
Key notes: iced accord, yuzu, pomegranate, peony, magnolia, lotus flower, acajou, vegetal amber, musk
Bright Crystal is arguably Versace's most iconic perfume. (It's a toss-up—Yellow Diamond is also beloved.) That said, there's something so timeless and sparkly about this designer fragrance. Fun fact: It's a concerted blend of Donatella Versace's favorite floral fragrances, but thanks to deeper hints of amber and musk, it doesn't read overly delicate as some floral scents do.
4 Sizes Available, starting at $50.60
Key notes: citron from diamante, pear sorbet, neroli, bergamot, nymphea, freesia, orange blossom, mimosa, amber wood, palo santo, musk

One of My Favorites
Key notes: citrus fruit, peony, mandarin, rose, pink peppercorn, osmanthus, patchouli, sandalwood, vanilla
This lovely designer perfume from Gucci can satisfy all palettes. It's basically a tri-hybrid between sweet, floral, and fruity. It's my go-to when I want to smell amazing but can't decide between my collection of bottles.
