If Your Regular Perfume Never Lasts, You Need to Try This Editor Secret Instead

One of the biggest beauty bummers is when you find the perfect fragrance—whether it’s sweet and gourmand, woody and cozy, or any other scent profile—and it doesn’t last. You spritz it on in the morning, and less than an hour later, it’s like it’s totally dissipated from your clothes and skin. Sure, you can carry your perfume with you, but who wants to do that? Not only are they traditionally encased in heavy glass, but it’s quite the risk to spill a potent perfume in your favorite bag.  What you should do instead is opt for a hair perfume. If you’ve never used one before, the concept might sound a little strange—even kind of pointless–but we swear they last longer than traditional fragrances. Plus, there’s something to be said about the intoxicating effect of hair perfume…Imagine, a breeze ruffles your hair and a delicate, sweetly-scented fragrance wafts up to envelop you. Who doesn’t want that? Without further ado, keep scrolling to see our 15 favorite hair perfumes. These are the ones we use on repeat. 

This hair perfume has been sold out at Sephora for some time, so get it before it sells out everywhere else, too. It’s enriched with honey, so it maintains the hair’s natural moisture balance, while the brand’s signature scent lingers on each strand. 

This hair perfume is so good. It has notes of warm vanilla, citrus, and sweet clover, so it’s fresh, delicate, and cozy all at once. 

This fragrance from Bibliothèque is one of our all-time favorites from the brand. Inspired by libraries, it has notes of peach, plum, peony, violet, leather, patchouli, and vanilla. If we had to describe it using two words, they would be complex and intoxicating. 

The same notes that are found in the beloved Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum ($116) are found in this sophisticated hair perfume—orange, patchouli, and Turkish rose. 

Scented with prickly pear, mandarin, and magnolia, this hair perfume is sweet and fruity (and it’s on-sale). 

Acqua di Parma fragrances are known for being bold and sophisticated, and this hair perfume is no exception. With notes of magnolia, bergamot, and sandalwood, it’s floral and elegant. 

We also love this rosy iteration of Acqua di Parma’s hair mist. With notes of mandarin, musk, violet, and rose absolute, it will leave your hair smelling of classic florals. 

This hair perfume doubles as a body mist. With notes of Brazilian jasmine, pink dragonfruit, and sheer vanilla, it’s perfectly gourmand. 

If you love Versace’s Bright Crystal Eau de Toilette ($105), you’ll love this hair mist, which has the same notes of lemon, peony, and musk. 

Miss Dior Eau de Parfum ($148) is one of our most beloved designer fragrances, so it’s no surprise that we love the matching hair mist so much. With notes of bergamot, Grasse rose, and rosewood, it smells fresh and delicate, like the morning air in provincial France. 

This hair perfume smells warm and sultry with notes of tuberose and sandalwood. What’s even better than the fragrance, though, is the fact that it has ingredients like panthenol, camelia oil, aloe vera, and castor oil to benefit the hair. 

The original Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium fragrance went viral on Tik Tok, thanks to notes of coffee, vanilla, and white florals. We’re guessing most people don’t know that the very same fragrance also comes in hair mist form. With the addition of argan oil for softness and shine, it’s just as nourishing as it is fragrant. 

This fragrance from Jo Malone London is so mellow and fresh that we could wear it every single day. With the addition of argan oil and provitamin B5, it also softens the hair and gives it a little extra shine. 

Notes of tuberose, white musk, ylang-ylang, orange blossom, and coconut are what make this cult-favorite fragrance so intoxicating. Wearing it in your hair is even better. 

If a bright and zesty fragrance is more your vibe, you’ll love this hair mist from Diptyque. Not only is the bottle worthy of being displayed, but the fragrance is fresh and delicate.
