I have been buying luxury perfumes for years and these are my three favourites

The world of perfumes is so vast that it feels like we’d need multiple lifetimes to explore all the fragrances out there. Well, that feeling is pretty accurate. Even though I enjoy changing things up occasionally, I find myself gravitating towards my favourites more often than not.

In recent years, both because of my profession and my love for trying fresh scents, I’ve sampled many fragrances. Most of them fall within the realm of luxury cosmetics, with brands like Chanel, Dior, or Yves Saint Laurent being regulars in my collection. While I have several go-to scents in my makeup bag, these three luxury perfumes have become staples in my daily routine:

The 3 luxury perfumes I always repurchase

Flora Gorgeous Gardenia by Gucci

This floral gem from Gucci never leaves my makeup bag, no matter the season. With Gardenia as its star note, it’s undeniably my favourite from the entire Flora collection. Here are its irresistible olfactory notes:

  • Top notes: Pear flower, red berries, and Italian mandarin.
  • Heart notes: Gardenia, jasmine, and frangipani (plumeria, plumaria, atapaima).
  • Base notes: Brown sugar and patchouli.

Yes I Am Blum Up by Cacharel

Yes I Am Blum Up via Cacharel

My love story with this floral delight from Cacharel was a whirlwind (or should I say, a “scent wind”) from the start. With its uniquely spicy aroma that captivates from the first whiff, it’s designed for “optimistic women capable of surpassing themselves with glamour.” Here are its enchanting olfactory notes:

  • Top notes: Red berries and green mandarin.
  • Heart notes: Peony and orange blossom.
  • Base notes: Benzoin and sandalwood.

Revolución by Carner Barcelona

Closing the list is this Spanish-made gem from Carner Barcelona. While not your typical luxury brand, it’s captivating scent and accessible price tag easily earn it a spot in the luxury category. Compliments flow whenever I wear it. Here are its distinctive olfactory notes:

Top notes: Thyme, orange blossom, and oxygen accord.

Heart notes: Saffron, mate tea, and violet leaf.

Base notes: Texas cedar, Somali incense, and leather accord.
