Elegant Rose-Scented Fragrances That Can Be Your New Signature Scent
7 Classic Scents To Uplift Your Mood

  1. Whiff

    A trip to the fragrance capital Grasse in France inspired Whiff's founder to create her own local artisanal line. But don't let that intimidate you, because their range has light, wearable scents that will remind you of international classics but at an affordable price. Gardenia Bliss, Nectarine Passion, and Autumn Dew are some of our top picks, all of which were made in collaboration with Grasse-trained Filipino perfumer RJ Lopena.

  2. Simoy ng Haraya

    Many swear by Simoy ng Haraya's unisex perfumes not only for having special names like Lambing, Unang Halik, and Ngiti. Their scents capture the essence of those emotions and actions, too, linking their blends to your best memories while, of course, giving you a reliable go-to spritz.

  3. Scentsmith

    Shopping for perfume at a Scentsmith store almost feels like ordering a very luxurious lunch. They hand-blend your chosen scent for you as you watch, ensuring that your bottle is freshly-made aside from having natural, non-toxic ingredients. Some of their most intriguing blends are the Pink Pepper Leather, Ambrette Sea Salt, and Lavender Nectarine, but we recommend going through 17 to find your match. Each one is a true steal for P1,198 and makes perfect gifts, too.

    If you're not a perfume wearer but love the lightness of cologne, Sparrow probably has a scent for you. Though they're best known for their best-selling baby cologne Lullaby (a lovely bergamot-lavender), you'll also find shower-fresh fragrances like Sunshine, and ones inspired by your favorite cocktails.
