I Go Wild for This French Perfume Brand—These Are the 3 I Spritz on Repeat

I wholeheartedly realize that even when I'm completely ecstatic about a certain perfume brand or particular scent, that doesn't necessarily mean everyone is. (Fragrance is a very, very personal thing, after all!) But… 

During my time as a beauty editor and self-proclaimed perfume savant, there have been particular brands, fragrance families, and bottles that I, and pretty much everyone I know and love, go absolutely wild for. My fellow beauty editors and I have a separate running chat solely dedicated to our current scent obsessions, and to this day, I've never recommended a perfume to a loved one that hasn't become an object of obsession in their life. Additionally, some brands and cult-classic perfumes are so iconic, beloved, and studded with best-selling bottles that it's impossible not to make the overarching conjecture that they're practically return-proof and bona fide compliment getters. Parisian fragrance house Diptyque is one such brand.

From the carefully articulated melding of notes cozied into each bottle to the artistic packaging, there's a lot to love about Diptyque, and it's by far one of the most adored perfume brands of all time. Quite honestly, I've never sniffed a Diptyque perfume that didn't strike my fancy—each bursts with character and unexpected perfection—but there are three perfumes in particular that have earned a permanent spot on my dresser. Oh, and it's not just me. This trio is consistently found within the brand's best-sellers list, and they also earn top ranks at popular retailers like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus… You get the idea! So without further ado, I'm sharing my personal favorite Diptyque perfumes of all time along with nine more honorable mentions in the best-of-the-best category. Keep scrolling!

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.
