You might think floral scents are only for springtime, but they’re year-round crowd-pleasers.
If you’re unsure about what really makes a fragrance “floral”, we’re here to help demystify what flowery scents you may encounter as you shop for a new bottle. As a bonus, we’ll fill you in on some of our favorite floral scents here at Snif.
What Is a Floral Scent?
In fragrance, there are a few basic scent categories you’ll see pop up from time to time, like “floral,” “woody,” or “fresh.” Fragrance florals are a diverse mix of scents, so there’s something for everyone.
While the fragrance industry loves to put gendered labels on floral scents, at Snif we know florals are for all and create genderless fragrances for everyone to love. Florals can create fun, unique blends that work for any occasion and any mood.
Our Five Favorite Floral Scents
Now that you know a bit about what floral fragrances are, let’s take a look at some of our favorites.
You’ll also notice that not all the scents in these fragrances are floral.. At Snif, we love to create unique blends with a diverse range of notes. Ingredients like vanilla bean, moss, cedarwood, pink pepper, and more balance out the scents and make them one of a kind.
Did you say floral AND genderless? Now that's a scent worth shaking your Ash for!
With florals like juniper and bergamot, Sweet Ash stays fresh as it balances silky vanilla bean, moss, tonka bean, and patchouli.
It’s sweet and savory, sexy and bright all at the same time.
Ex on the Beach
Fig is one scent that you may not have smelled before. It’s complex, sweet, and floral — even though it’s technically a fruity scent. Fig is one of the key ingredients in our Ex on the Beach fragrance. It's the kind of ingredient that keeps you coming back for more, even though you've promised your friends it's over and you're moving on...sure, go fig-ure.
Ex on the Beach is heavy on the fig, but it also includes a variety of florals. It’s an addictive fragrance that always stands out in a crowd.
This scent combines fruity fig and smoky cedarwood with floral ylang ylang, orange blossom, peony, and white flower. If you want to feel extra confident next time you run into an ex, this is the fragrance for you. It radiates confidence without being overwhelming.
We see a comfy beach chair, some morning bubbly, and a hotel pool in your future.
Strawberry Moon, one of our favorite summer scents, was inspired by the iconic South Beach goodtime hotel’s swim club. This fragrance will transport you — and anyone who gets a whiff — to a tropical vacation destination.
With jasmine, iris, pink pepper, vetiver, and more, this fragrance will bring the party from sunrise to sunset. Whether you’re livin’ it up Miami-style or prefer to relax closer to home, Strawberry Moon is for good vibes and good times only.
