Hot Tip: Don't Sleep on These 12 Designer Perfumes
We recently announced that designer perfumes are making a comeback. After being overlooked for years in favor of indie perfumes like Byredo, Diptyque and Le Labo, they're officially getting back into rotation. It just makes sense. After all, we are currently seeing a revival of the trends of the 2000s. Claw clips, hair scarves, mini skirts, velor tracksuits, baby tanks and bucket hats are back and better than ever. Are there more than 2000s than designer perfumes collecting and proudly displaying them next to your Chad Michael Murray poster?
While there are tons of designer perfumes to choose from - including those from old favorites like Chanel, Gucci, Dior, and Valentino - we thought we'd take the time to highlight Carolina Herrera's. Why do you ask? It's easy. We believe they have been overlooked lately. Their complex, elegant and sweet-smelling fragrance combinations deserve more recognition. Keep scrolling to see the 12 best Carolina Herrera perfumes to buy right now.
Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum ($ 98)
This is perhaps Carolina Herrera's most iconic fragrance, thanks to its dramatic stiletto spray bottle that gives us half haute couture, half Jessica Rabbit vibes. Aside from the packaging, the inside scent is strong, floral and slightly spicy, thanks to a top note of almond, middle notes of tuberose and jasmine and bottom notes of tonka bean and cocoa.
Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum Supreme ($ 76)
Good Girl Suprême is similar to the original, but lighter and more juicy. That's because it has a top note of red berries instead of almonds. Although it's fruity, it's not exactly fresh or savory. A heart note of jasmine and ground notes of tonka bean and vetiver ensure that this fragrance smells smooth and rich.
Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum Légère ($ 98)
Yes, there is a third iteration of the Good Girl fragrance. This is called Good Girl Légère and is lighter and creamier than the original. A top note of mandarin mixes with heart notes of jasmine and ylang-yang as well as bottom notes of tonka bean and dulce de leche accord. Think of it as the fresh and citrus younger sister of the original.
Carolina Herrera Orange Affair Eau de Toilette ($ 158)
If you're like me, you love citrus scents. They're just so light, fresh, and summery, which is why I'm drawn to this thing called the Orange Affair. Notes of tangerine and orange blossom mix with tonka bean and musk for a bright, soft fragrance.
Carolina Herrera Vetiver Paradise Eau de Toilette ($ 158)
Coming from the same lineage as Orange Affair, this fragrance is smooth and spicy. The top notes of grapefruit, pink pepper and bergamot mix with neroli, cardamom and nutmeg. Then there is the main ingredient vetiver, which rounds off this woody scent.
Carolina Herrara 212 VIP Eau de Parfum ($ 110)
The sleek capsule design of this fragrance is a departure from Carolina Herrera's other, more dramatic offerings, but don't let that fool you about the fragrance inside. Passion fruit and bergamot mix with gardenia, rum accord and musk for a sweet and glamorous fragrance.
Carolina Herrera 212 VIP Rosé Eau de Parfum ($ 110)
Another fragrance, another iteration of the original. This time it's the 212 VIP Rosé, elegant and flowery. Champagne rosé and pink pepper form the top notes. Peachtree flowers and roses make up the middle notes, and wood and musk make up the base notes. This is a fragrance that I would have no hesitation in wearing to morning brunch or to the office.
Carolina Herrera 212 NYC Eau de Toilette ($ 110)
This fragrance was inspired by New York City, which explains its sleek and minimalist packaging. The scent itself is light, piquant and, thanks to the top notes of flower stalks and bergamot, slightly herbaceous. Gardenia and jasmine form the middle notes, sandalwood and musk the base notes.
Carolina Herrera CH Women's Eau de Toilette ($ 116)
This fragrance definitely belongs to the floral family with notes of rose, bergamot, grapefruit and jasmine. That being said, it's not overwhelmingly sweet or syrupy thanks to a grounded and earthy base note of patchouli. It's definitely a good type of perfume that can be worn anywhere.
Carolina Herrera Confidential Tuberose Eau de Parfum ($ 259)
Now we're reaching the brand's darker and richer fragrance offering. This unisex fragrance called Herrera Tuberose is bold and intense. It contains notes of tuberose (natural), jasmine, orange blossom, vanilla and ylang-ylang.
Carolina Herrera Confidential Burning Rose Eau de Parfum ($ 259)
This intoxicating fragrance was inspired by the 70s and 80s. It contains notes of rose, black pepper, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon and myrrh. Basically, it smells dark and elegant - like a retro cocktail lounge, and that's what I mean best.
Carolina Herrera Confidential Neroli Boheme Eau de Parfum ($ 259)
If Burning Rose is reminiscent of a retro cocktail lounge, then this fragrance is reminiscent of an Italian vacation in midsummer. Notes of citrus fruits, jasmine and musk combine to create something that is fresh, floral and spicy at the same time.
