1. Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia
While Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia revolves around—you guessed it—floral notes, it brings you back to childhood with its nostalgic top notes of popsicles and lollipops. The brand describes this eau de parfum as being rich with pear blossom accord, white gardenia, solar jasmine and sweet brown sugar. It comes in three sizes: 1 ounce, 1.6 ounces and 3.3 ounces. The mini version is a portable 0.25-ounce rollerball.

2. Sol de Janeiro Beija Flor Mist
Reviewed's beauty writer Sara Miranda understands the hype behind the TikTok-famous Sol de Janeiro Beija Flor Mist all too well after testing it alongside its same-scented body cream. She described the aroma as "a mix of freshly-picked flowers with a whiff of that cologne the guy you like is always wearing." The fragrance lingers without being overwhelming, she indicated in her review. The body mist is offered in 3- or 8-ounce bottles.
3. Burberry Her Blossom

One of its Sephora fans writes: "There is nothing like this perfume. It’s so sexy, spicy, floral and feminine. It’s not overly sweet. I'm someone who adores sweet feminine perfumes. I wear those for everyday wear. But this is the perfume you wear on a date night! [My partner] loves when I wear it, says I smell so good and can’t keep his hands off of me."

"I absolutely love this perfume," raves one Ulta reviewer. "The smell is fresh and floral and sexy all in one! I highly recommend to anyone wanting something new to try. I get asked all the time what I'm wearing and many have to buy it for themselves. Buy it! You won't be disappointed."

Many of its Sephora fans appreciate its superior staying power: "I love this perfume. I have over 30 perfumes and this is in the top five for scent and longevity. It is a scent you can smell on yourself throughout the day and not a lot of perfumes do that. The rhubarb is so pronounced and juicy! And who doesn’t want to smell delicious and juicy? One of my new faves."
