Passing by a Famous Amos outlet always makes us wonder if we can just buy the scent and spray it on ourselves. Smelling like freshly baked cookies may be an overkill though, so here are 11 subtler scents you can use to have you smelling delicious too.
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Touche de Parfum, $132
SMELLS LIKE: A FRUIT SALAD
The sweet note of lychee is balanced with notes of grapefruit, bergamot and orange in this sexy, feminine fragrance. It’s packaged like the brand’s Rouge Allure Gloss lip gloss, complete with an applicator so that you can dab the fragrance on your neck and wrists – perfect for touch-ups on the go.
Rance Hortense EDP, $215
SMELLS LIKE: FIZZY COLA CANDY
This fragrance – a blend of grapefruit, spices and vanilla – reminds us of our favourite cola-flavoured sweets. What a throwback to our childhood!
Dior La Collection Privee Feve Delicieuse EDP, $560
SMELLS LIKE: CREME BRULEE
Tonka beans, vanilla, caramel, cocoa and pralines – the perfume’s notes read like the recipe for a delicious dessert. We promise it smells like one too.
Code Deco Kokomo Perfume, $150
SMELLS LIKE: A COCKTAIL
This scent calls to mind a delicious cocktail with its notes of tea, mint, rum and vanilla. We’re definitely packing it for our next beach holiday.
Calvin Klein CK2 EDT, $80
SMELLS LIKE: WASABI
Yep, you read that right. And no, a whiff of this won’t make you sneeze. The wasabi note is combined with that of zesty mandarin to create a refreshing fragrance that’s great for balmy days.
Atelier Cologne Pomelo Paradis Cologne Absolue EDP, $260
SMELLS LIKE: POMELO JUICE
This citrusy perfume opens with a burst of pink grapefruit and mandarin notes to perk you up. It smells almost exactly like pomelo juice, and wears well in our humid weather.
Serge Lutens Jeux de Peau EDP, $162
SMELLS LIKE: FRESHLY BAKED BREAD
Serge Lutens has captured the intoxicating smell of a bustling bakery in a bottle; notes of milk, wheat, apricot and spices make this perfume a comforting scent to wear on rainy days.
Nina Ricci Les Delices de Nina EDT, $145
SMELLS LIKE: STRAWBERRY CANDY
Inspired by the sugar candy cottage in the fairy tale Hansel and Gretel, this limited-edition version of the original Nina EDT has notes of citrus, strawberry and white caramel, and smells tangy and sweet without being cloying.
Bulgari Eau Parfumee Au The Noir EDC, $139
SMELLS LIKE: FRESHLY BREWED TEA
The patchouli note in this unisex scent perfectly complements the sweet, floral black tea one. We’d wear this sensual fragrance for a night out with our girlfriends or a hot date.
Gucci Guilty Eau Pour Femme EDT, $162
SMELLS LIKE: STRAWBERRY DAIQUIRI
Sweet notes of lychee and wild strawberries make for a more girlie interpretation of the original Gucci Guilty fragrance.
Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Misteriosa, $158
SMELLS LIKE: BERRY SOUFFLE
The tartness of blackberry combines with the sweetness of black vanilla mousse to create this fruity, oriental scent. We especially love the bottle, which is adorned with the iconic Vara bow.
