Perfumes are kind of like people; each bottle a mini-personality. There's the face they put forward for a first impression, and then a second, deeper side you only discover after hanging out for a while. That's why finding a fragrance that really suits you can be a little like finding a lifelong friend — it’s a seriously personal endeavor.
When the latest crop of spring scents rolled across our desk, we started wondering — if we bumped into this perfume at a bar, what would it look like? What would this fragrance wear? Where would she live? What would her M.O. be?
There was only one way to answer those deep quandaries, which was assigning backstories to all of our favorites. Click through to meet the scents you’ll be sporting this spring. Whether you identify directly with one of them, or can see yourself becoming BFFs with another, we’re sure you’ll find your scent soulmate (or at least a fragrance fling) somewhere in the slides to follow.
