One of the biggest beauty bummers is when you find the perfect fragrance—whether it's sweet and gourmand, woody and cozy, or any other scent profile—and it doesn't last. You spritz it on in the morning, and less than an hour later, it's like it's totally dissipated from your clothes and skin. Sure, you can carry your perfume with you, but who wants to do that? Not only are they traditionally encased in heavy glass, but it's also quite the risk to spill a potent perfume in your favorite bag. 

What you should do instead is opt for a hair perfume. If you've never used one before, the concept might sound a little strange—even kind of pointless—but we swear they last longer than traditional fragrances. Plus, there's something to be said about the intoxicating effect of hair perfume. Imagine, a breeze ruffles your hair and a delicate, sweetly scented fragrance wafts up to envelop you. Who doesn't want that? Without further ado, keep scrolling to see our 15 favorite hair perfumes. These are the ones we use on repeat.
