For the island dreamer
Try: Atelier Cologne Pacific Lime, $135

Put simply, she'd rather be lying on a white sand beach in Hawaii. (Wouldn't we all, though?) Whisk her away with this new tropical scent — its notes of lime and coconut are downright delectable.

For the reformed goth
Try: Gucci Bloom Nettare di Fiori, $141

In high school, she was all about the black eyeliner and flat-ironed bangs, but in adulthood, she's graduated to a more chic take on the all-black look (albeit paired with the occasional pair of stompy boots). Like her, this perfume is sophisticated — with just enough darkness mixed in to give it a little edge.

For the hopeless romantic
Try: Miu Miu Fleur D'Argent Perfume, $132

She likes to watch "When Harry Met Sally" on a loop and daydreams about honeymooning in Paris. (She's also constantly sending you screenshots of text exchanges with her crush of the moment for your expert analysis, but that's a story for another day). A fresh yet sweet floral like this one is perfect for her (especially with its shiny chrome bottle and retro aesthetic).
