There’s nothing quite like putting the finishing touches on an outfit you know you look good in. Whether it’s slipping on those swanky new sunglasses you bought, picking out your earrings, or spritzing on some good perfume before heading out, each step can be a huge boost to your day.

Still, with the seemingly endless number of fragrance options on the market these days, it can be hard to figure out that last part. That’s why it helps to narrow down the categories: do you like the smell of fresh flowers, fresh greens, or woody musks? If you fall for the former, the good news is that floral scents are timeless and can be worn regardless of season or occasion.

Additionally, these scents can include many iterations like fruity florals, sweet florals, and citrus florals, to name a few. So if you don’t think you’re a fan, don’t be so quick to dismiss the whole family of floral scents, because there are plenty more to choose from. Because we know there’s no “one size fits all” floral scent, we asked POPSUGAR editors to share a comprehensive list of their favorite floral scents worth trying.
