Must read

Like sophisticated vanilla perfumes and delicate rose fragrances, lavender perfumes are perennial for a reason. “Lavender is one of the most beautiful oils by itself,” says David Seth Moltz, co-founder of D.S. & Durga. “It recalls a journey through European fields with age-old associations; it can denote cleanliness and is usually powdery for people who dig that,” he notes.

Used as far back as ancient Egyptian times, lavender has also been shown to have soothing and calming properties. So whether you’re looking to wind down for the weekend or are just getting into a jam-packed work week, a few spritzes of lavender perfume may just help you dissipate stress (and smell amazing in the process).

Despite its light and airy nature, lavender shouldn’t only be considered a daytime or spring-ready scent, however. Actually, it’s quite versatile.“Lavender is one of the canonical aromas of perfumery, so can work for both day and night and in any season,” says Seth Moltz, adding that it’s especially fitting for the evening when mixed with deeper floral or amber scents. According to the expert, lavender blends well with other florals like jasmine and rose, as well as herbs and citruses for a crisp medley.
