When you work in beauty it's tough to decide on a signature scent. It's also your job to try new fragrances instead of settling on just one. So we (beauty editors) reason with ourselves and build a collection of go-to fragrances, or to what I like to call "scent stories." Having a scent story also saves me a little bit of heartache when a favorite scent gets discontinued or can only be found in boutique shops in Paris and the UK (here's to you, Lancôme Miracle So Magic!) Here are 13 favorites from my personal scent story that I rely on for every occasion. Perhaps a few of these will become staples in your wardrobe as you start to build your own scent story.
