Apart from a few spritzes of a fancy perfume I snagged from my brother years ago, I’ve never worn a fragrance more than a few times a year. But then I was introduced to Tocca and immediately wanted to douse my entire body in all of their fragrances. Of course I’d end up liking a Parisian-themed scent, Florence, the most. I’m infatuated with anything to do with Paris (I also studied abroad there), so obviously a product description that includes something like "Whether having a café au lait on the right bank, or perusing the Louvre gardens, Florence evokes classic elegance" would instantly woo me. 💕
Wearing this scent is like getting a whiff from a fresh and citrusy, but slightly earthy bouquet of flowers — all the notes of gardenia, bergamot, and blonde wood actually come through in equal parts and create a scent that's much more subtle and complex than most floral perfumes. I'm obsessed. The packaging is breathtaking and so incredibly luxe and makes you feel like a real-life princess every time you reach for it. So even though Prince Harry is officially taken, Florence will elevate me to pretend royalty status. —Sarah Han
I’ve been obsessed with Tocca perfume since I was a young child — my mother wears Cleopatra, and I grew up staring at that beautiful bottle on her vanity for as long as I could remember. Anyway, I’ve decided to finally become an adult — and by that I mean I’ve decided to get my own signature scent. Out of principle, I wanted to copy my mother and wear something from Tocca as well.
I almost immediately fell in love with Bianca, a fresh, clean scent inspired by the Amalfi Coast. The perfume combines notes of green tea, rose, sugar, and lemon that lasts all day, for a scent that's not overwhelming at all! I’m currently using the travel-sized bottle, but even that packaging is gorgeous. It resembles a sort of vintage storybook, and I feel extremely fancy every time I pick it up. This is honestly the perfect gift. —AnaMaria Glavan
