With National Fragrance Day on March 21st, there’s no better time to celebrate all things aromatic. When shopping for a new signature scent though, remember: fragrances are personal. They’re an extension of your mood and personality. They evoke memories and help create new ones. Whether you prefer floral fragrances or woody ones, we’ve found several you (and maybe your beau – many of them are unisex!) are going to want to spritz on every day.

Scroll on for ten fragrances that could easily become your new signature scent.

1. A bergamot-based fragrance that’ll be your forever favorite

D.S. & Durga is the master of nailing oddly specific scents – you have to get a whiff of their Portable Fireplace candle – but our favorite perfume of theirs is Debaser. With top notes of bergamot, green leaf, and pear stem, it’s “built on memories of August humidity, music, and young romance.” The middle notes include fig, coconut milk, and iris, and base notes include blond woods, tonka bean, and moss.

Parisian fragrance house Diptyque is iconic for its timeless scents, whether in perfume, candle, or room spray form. Their Do Son Eau de Toilette is a classic – fresh and floral, but far from delicate. With keynotes of tuberose, orange blossom, jasmine, and marine accord, it could quickly become your new go-to. Plus, with a bottle so beautiful, you’ll want to show it off on your dresser.

We don’t know how Le Labo captured the distinct smell of the air after heavy rain on dry land, but they did. Baie 19, with top notes of dry juniper berry, patchouli, and green leaves, captures the scent of plants soaking in their first rain after a dry period. It’s crisp and woody, and will likely inspire everyone around you to ask what perfume you’re wearing.
