Short-Lived Perfume Is the Worst, so We Found 26 That Will Last All Day

Anticipating the turn of the season always sparks a bit of fragrance restlessness for us beauty editors. Perhaps it's because we're constantly taking mental notes of the scents our favorite fashion people are wearing, or perhaps it's just that our gigantic fragrance collections have us on an endless rotation through the chic tonics on our vanities.

Whatever the case may be, long-lasting perfumes that can keep up with our busy schedules are of the utmost importance. With days that sometimes start with breakfast meetings, get punctuated with desksides, and end with happy hour, we need fragrances that will still be going strong for that second glass of pinot grigio.

Luckily, long-lasting fragrances abound! From pretty florals to enveloping musks and earthy scents that conjure images of nature's most divine creations, there are tons of elixirs to keep our olfactory interest piqued from morning to night. Ahead, check out the long-lasting perfumes we love most.
