The Best Smelling Fragrances of 2022

Most Complimented Luxury & Affordable Perfumes

When it comes to the best smelling fragrance, there isn’t a wrong answer because perfumes smell different on everyone. Is it the most complimented perfume? I believe it’s a matter of personal preference. So I enlisted the help of my daughter Kiera, aka the real perfume connoisseur, to share some of her favorites as well. We have rounded up the best fragrances from affordable to luxury scents to share in this post. 

What is the best smelling perfume of all time?

What is the best smelling perfume of all time? If you ask Kiera, she would say it depends on the season, event, and overall feel you what to evoke. She is the type of fragrance lover who researches the scent’s notes, ingredients, and inspiration. On the other hand, I typically buy what I love, which tends to be warm yet sweet and slightly spicy scents. I stay away from anything with magnolia because it sets off my allergies. Here is our best smelling fragrance for the time of day.

Favorite Perfumes of All Time

No matter how many fragrances I have, there are some that I wear over and over again because they flow with my life so effortlessly. One of my go-to fragrances for work is Stella by Tocca. Stella is a Floral Woody Musk fragrance for women. Stella launched in 2006. The top notes are Blood Orange, Bitter Orange, and Watery Notes; middle notes are Lily, Freesia, and Wild Orchid; base notes are Sandalwood and Musk. 

Kiera’s signature scent is a bit more complex; Womanity by Mugler Womanity. Womanity launched in 2010; Mane, Alexis Dadier created this fragrance, and Ralf Schwieger. 18 years after Angel and five years after extraordinary Alien, Thierry Mugler is saluting femininity. The new edition will thrill all fans of his creations. Womanity is a word created to connect femininity, humanity, and the city.

The Best New Fragrances for 2022

We both recently picked-up new fragrances for 2022 that are quickly becoming favorites! She purchased the latest Tom Ford scent  ÉBÈNE FUMÉ. Kiera found this fragrance at the Tome Ford counter in Bloomingdale’s NYC. Kiera instantly fell in love with the warmth and unique palo santo woody base. Did you know that most Tom Ford fragrances are unisex perfumes also known as shared fragrances? If you search on YouTube, Tom Ford ÉBÈNE FUMÉ is being called the number scent for men. However, on Kiera, this scent is dominating without smelling like she’s wearing her father’s cologne. 

My most recent purchase was Moncler pour Femme by Moncler. The Moncler pour Femme is the first fragrance released by the brand. It’s beautiful! Lightly Floral Woody Musk fragrance for women. Moncler pour Femme was created by Nisrine Bouazzaoui Grillie and Quentin Bisch. The top notes are Powdery Notes, Snow, and Bergamot; the middle notes are Heliotrope and Jasmine Sambac; the base notes are Vanilla, Cedar, Sandalwood, and Amber.
