Sometimes it can be hard to find a good perfume, especially when you’re not even sure that perfume is your thing, which is why I have compiled the 7 best single note perfumes and why you should be wearing them. Single note perfumes are perfect when learning what scents work for you, plus they typically come in an oil based form so they last longer. So check out the 7 best single note perfumes and why you should be wearing them.
1 Demeter Fragrances
I start my list on 7 best single note perfumes and why you should be wearing them with Demeter Fragrances. Demeter was started as a company focused on bottling every smell you could possibly think of. And when I say every smell, I mean EVERY SMELL. Scents range from Bulgarian Rose to Waffles, and Pipe Tobacco to Watermelon Lollipop. My favorites are their Lavender and Thunderstorm scents. They also have Riding Crop. You know, to make your 50 Shades of Grey fantasies more... everyday?
2 Royal Apothic the Extracts
Royal Apothic is the best perfume company you’ve most likely never heard of. It was created by perfumer Sean O’Mara, who while vacationing in the UK came across an old apothecary journal filled with ancient royal fragrance recipes, and turned them into a booming business. How cool is that!? Though they have regular perfumes, they also have singular roll-ons known as The Extracts. The Extracts are designed to be worn both alone, and with others to create your own custom scent. I love their Extract Violette Pastille, which reminds me of my favorite violet candies.
3 Aveda Singular Notes
I feel like when people think of Aveda, they think of hair care. Maybe it’s just me. But Aveda also does excellent natural scents based in healthy oils. I especially love their Chakras, but they have beautiful singular perfumes known as Singular Notes. I really love their peppermint scent, which promotes positivity. Wanna know something cool? When you go to Aveda on your birthday, they’ll use the Singular notes to create a custom perfume or body lotion for you for FREE!
4 Kiehls Musk
This is probably one of the more famous singular fragrances. It’s super sensual and sexy. In fact it, when it was originally found in a vat in the apothecary's basement, it was deemed too sexy and was hidden away for the consumers' safety. Luckily when it rediscovered, it was decided that the general public could decide for themselves on the level of sex appeal. Which is a good thing, because not only is it one of my favorites, but I’ve made it Mr. Man’s as well. I’m such a good influence, aren’t I?
5 C.O. Bigelow Perfume Oil
I have always loved C.O. Bigelow for their collection at Bath and Body Works, but there is SO much more to the company when you go to their website. It’s like receiving the ultimate surprise gift that just keeps on giving! Like not being pregnant! Or being pregnant- your choice. I love the smell of Magnolia blossoms. It’s always been my mom’s favorite, and it reminds us both of the tree in front of my grandmother’s house. The fact that they have a Magnolia scent available brings back generations of sweet childhood memories of climbing that tree... minus the leg scrapes.
6 Uncommon Scents Perfume Oil
I’m interested in trying out this brand solely because of one fragrance they offer: Aloe Vera. I mean when I think Aloe Vera I am reminded of a cool green gel applied to my very burned Celtic blend skin. I’m basically a cocktail of all things sunburn, so I’ve gotten to know Aloe Vera quite well. So I guess Uncommon Scents has a point when they say the fragrance is both uplifting and refreshing. However, I’m interested in seeing what it smells like when it’s applied as a room temperature oil, rather than an ice cold drink for my skin. Will it be like drinking a room temperature Mojito?
7 The Body Shop Perfume Oil
Okay so maybe these aren’t completely singular. But for the most part, they follow one scent and enhance it a bit. Though they don’t actually tell you what they enhance it with. You can do with that thought what you may. However, they probably are the most accessible of this list (TBS is everywhere), and do last awhile on the skin. They also give off some nice memories of when you were first trying out fragrances as a teenager. I’ll suggest Madagascar Vanilla, since I haven’t suggested a vanilla yet, and I know at least one of you reading this wants a vanilla perfume.
So there you have it, folks. No longer should you be confounded by complicated perfumes (unless you want to). Go out there and find sexy signature scent and make heads turn. So, what do you think of singular scent perfumes?
