Out of all the different kinds of fragrances—fruity, earthy, woody, and so on—floral fragrances are perhaps the most popular. That's because they're some of the most classic and universal scents; it doesn't matter what season, occasion, or setting you find yourself in; a floral fragrance will be fitting. Heading to the office? Yep. Catching up over Sunday brunch? Sure. Going on a date? Definitely. 

That's not to say that all floral fragrances are the same or that they're boring or basic. In fact, floral is a category that's as vague as it is vast, and no floral fragrance is the same. Some are classically sweet and soft. Others are slightly smoky or spicy. Clearly, we have options… a lot of options. To narrow things down, we searched the internet for the most popular ones—the scents that are best-selling, top-rated, or even just consistently talked about. Ahead, see 17 floral fragrances that are worthy of becoming your new signature scent. 

Best Overall: Parfums de Marly Delina Eau de Parfum
