Fresh crop of fragrances are again promising to be your go-to scent. But since sniffing your way through the entire Sephora perfume aisle is less than ideal, we did you a solid by combing through every fragrance of 2018—including the floral, fruity, woody, and sweet notes—for the ultimate breakdown of our favorite new scents.

Kenzo World Eau de Toilette

You’d think this fruity-sweet combo would be cloying, but the blend of pear, almond blossom, and peony creates a decidedly intoxicating effect.

Tory Burch Just Like Heaven Extrait de Perfume

Crisp notes of mandarin orange and rhubarb are rounded out by cool ylang-ylang in Tory Burch’s newest addition.

John Varvatos Artisan Pure

John Varvatos' latest scent is anything but classic—lemon and orange are infused with rich notes of coffee tree flower and coriander seed for a truly fresh marriage of woody and fruity.

Elizabeth and James Amethyst Eau de Perfume

This spicy emulsion isn’t for the faint of heart—one spritz and skin is left with a heavy-lidded combination of tobacco, honeysuckle, and cedar that'll leave you feeling soft and warm.

Aura Mugler Eau de Parfum

The gorgeous, smoky-sweet finish comes from notes of bittersweet rhubarb leaves, sugary vanilla, and smoldering botanical tiger liana—which makes its debut in Mugler's new signature scent.

Tom Ford Vanille Fatale Eau de Parfum

Coffee, frangipani, and mahogany are accompanied by roasted barley and vanilla for a rich, just-brewed scent that smells exactly like a first cup of Starbucks feels. Tom Ford's New Perfume Is Called F—king Fabulous

Proenza Schouler Arizona Eau de Parfum

Proenza Schouler’s first-ever scent hits the ideal middle ground between floral and sweet. Combining white cactus flower, jasmine, orange, and a touch of musk, it's a bright scent that we’ll be reaching for all summer long.

Nest Wisteria Blue

Powdery notes of French wisteria, Bulgarian rose, and imperial jasmine leave skin with an airy, feminine scent that’s soft enough—yet still definitively floral—for year-round wear.

Eric Buterbaugh Florals Sultry Rose Eau de Parfum

A soft wash of rose is mixed with pepper, passionfruit, and a hint of vanilla for a warm, modern spin on an otherwise classic scent.

Jo Malone Honey & Crocus Cologne

This limited-edition, beautifully packaged scent from Jo Malone sparks images of warm tea and the English countryside (a place we've all obviously been), thanks to a blend of honey, lavender, and almond milk.

Ellis Brooklyn Sci-Fi Eau de Parfum


The classic sweetness of vanilla is sharpened by bergamot and green tea in Ellis Brooklyn’s warm and subtly spicy scent.

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Hair Mist


YSL’s much-loved, vibrant combination of coffee, vanilla, pink pepper, and orange blossom is now infused with argan oil to create a mist that leaves hair soft, shiny, and heavenly scented.
