You Couldn't Get Me to Wear a Fruity Perfume Until I Discovered This One

I was never a fruity-fragrance person until I tried one deliciously juicy launch (Tom Ford Bitter Peach, if you must know) a few years back, which essentially had a fruitifying snowball effect on my entire perfume collection. All of a sudden, I couldn't get enough, and it's pretty much been the same story ever since. Of course, I'm not talking about the saccharine, completely obvious fruity numbers of our youth. (Please don't make me name them.) I'm talking about incredibly refreshing, innovative takes on the category that can easily appeal to any type of scent wearer—whether you typically tread fresh, floral, sweet, or even spicy

Beauty Director

Erin has been writing a mix of beauty and wellness content for Who What Wear for over four years. Prior to that, she spent two and half years writing for Byrdie. She now calls Santa Monica home but grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota, and studied writing, rhetoric, and communication at University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. She studied abroad in Galway, Ireland, and spent a summer in L.A. interning with the Byrdie and Who What Wear family. After graduating from UW, she spent one year in San Francisco, where she worked as a writer for Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen before moving down to L.A. to begin her career as a beauty editor. She considers her day-to-day beauty aesthetic very low-maintenance and relies on staples like clear brow serum (from Kimiko!), Lawless's Lip Plumping Mask in Cherry Vanilla, and an eyelash curler. For special occasions or days when she's taking more meetings or has an event, she'll wear anything and everything from Charlotte Tilbury (the foundations are game-changing), some shimmer on her lids (Stila and Róen do it best), and a few coats of the best mascara-type product on earth, Surratt's Noir Lash Tint.
