Are you drawn to zesty, refreshing scents with citrus characteristics? What about light, grassy, or even herbal fragrances? Fresh scents are clean and often sweet, and don't change much as they're worn, unlike a deeper fragrance which transforms over its wear time. These fragrances are the perfect "starter perfumes" if you've never committed to one before, as they're super-light and easy to wear.
1: Fresh Sugar Lemon: Smells sweetly citrus, exactly as its name implies. ($24.50 for 1 oz, Sephora)
2. L'Occitane Verbena: Verbena is a semi-woody flowering plant with a gorgeous, uniquely citrus smell that's similar to lemon but has more complexity. ($50 for 3.4 oz, L'Occitane)
3. Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey: This famous fragrance is meant to emulate the scent of a warm, sparkling water. It begins fresh and floral but has a deceptive musky dry down. ($69 for 1.6 oz, Sephora]
4. DKNY Be Delicious: A predominantly apple-based scent, with notes of other citrus fruits and a soft skin scent in its dry down. ($45 for 1 oz, Sephora)
