The 12 Best Perfumes for Teenagers in 2021

Design by Yoora Kim

Having a signature scent is everything. A whiff of a lingering note can transport the people in our lives to their favorite times with us. As good as it sounds, finding the perfect perfume can be difficult.

Quality scent options often leave you with two choices: super sweet scents that serve up childish vibes or bold flavors that work better for their mothers. Let’s not forget the battle between body mists that fade almost immediately after spraying.

When looking for the perfect perfume, it is essential to recognize the difference between eau de toilette (EDT) and eau de parfum (EDP). According to, “The main difference between an EDP and an EDT is the concentration of perfume oil, which plays a huge role in how long a perfume’s scent lasts.”

Eau de toilette usually lasts 4-6 hours due to its 8-15% concentration, while eau de parfum contains 15-30% and lasts 8-10 hours. Once you have decided on the lifespan of your perfume, there are fragrance families and olfactory notes. Do you like woody scents or do you prefer floral scents? Do you prefer clean, fresh scents or do you prefer warm, musky scents? There is never a right or wrong answer as your personal taste in perfume can change.

Now that you know what to look for when searching for the perfect perfume, what’s next? We’ve compiled the 12 best perfumes for teenage girls that will have everyone asking what perfume you’re wearing.
