Hot Tip: Don't Sleep on These 12 Designer Perfumes

We recently announced that designer perfumes are making a comeback. After years of being overlooked in favor of indie perfumes like those from Byredo, Diptyque, and Le Labo, they're officially being brought back in rotation. It only makes sense. We are, after all, currently experiencing a resurgence of 2000s trends. Claw clips, hair scarves, miniskirts, velour tracksuits, baby tanks, and bucket hats are all back and better than ever, and is there anything more 2000s than collecting designer perfumes and displaying them proudly next to your Chad Michael Murray poster? 

While there are countless designer perfumes to choose from—including those from old favorites like Chanel, Gucci, Dior, and Valentino—we thought we'd take the time to highlight those from Carolina Herrera, specifically. Why, you ask? It’s simple. We think they’ve been overlooked as of late. Their complex, elegant, and sweet-smelling fragrance combinations deserve more credit. Keep scrolling to see the 12 best Carolina Herrera perfumes to shop now.  

This is perhaps the most recognizable Carolina Herrera fragrance, thanks to its dramatic stiletto spray bottle that gives us half haute couture, half Jessica Rabbit vibes. Packaging aside, the fragrance inside is bold, floral, and slightly spicy, thanks to a top note of almond, heart notes of tuberose and jasmine, and bottom notes of tonka bean and cocoa. 

Good Girl Suprême is similar to the original, albeit brighter and juicier. That's because it has a top note of red berries instead of almond. Even though it's fruitier, it's not exactly fresh or zesty. A heart note of jasmine and bottom notes of tonka bean and vetiver keeps this fragrance smelling smooth and rich. 

Yes, there is a third iteration of the Good Girl fragrance. This one's called Good Girl Légère, and it's lighter and creamier than the original. A top note of tangerine mixes with heart notes of jasmine and ylang-yang plus bottom notes of tonka bean and dulce de leche accord. Consider it the original's fresh and citrusy younger sister. 

If you're like me, then you love citrus scents. They're just so light, fresh, and summery, which is why I'm drawn to this one called Orange Affair. Notes of mandarin and orange blossom mix with tonka bean and musk for a bright, smooth fragrance. 

This fragrance, which is from the same line as Orange Affair, is smooth and spicy. Top notes of grapefruit, pink pepper, and bergamot mix with neroli, cardamom, and nutmeg. Then there's the star ingredient, vetiver, which rounds out this woody scent. 

The sleek capsule design of this fragrance is a departure from Carolina Herrera's other, more dramatic offerings, but don't let that fool you about the scent inside. Passion fruit and bergamot mix with gardenia, rum accord, and musk for a sweet and glamorous scent. 

Another fragrance, another iteration of the original. This time it's the 212 VIP Rosé, and it's elegant and floral. Champagne rosé and pink pepper make up the top notes. Peachtree flowers and roses make up the heart notes, and wood and musk make up the bottom notes. This is a fragrance I wouldn't hesitate to wear to morning brunch or the office. 

This fragrance was inspired by New York City, which explains its sleek and minimalist packaging. As for the scent itself, it's light, zesty, and slightly herbal, thanks to top notes of flower stems and bergamot. Gardenia and jasmine make up the heart notes, and sandalwood and musk make up the bottom notes. 

This fragrance definitely falls in the floral family, with notes of rose, bergamot, grapefruit, and jasmine. That being said, it's not overwhelmingly sweet or syrupy, thanks to a grounded and earthy base note of patchouli. It's definitely a good wear-everywhere type of perfume. 

Now we're reaching the brand's darker, richer fragrance offerings. This unisex scent, called Herrera Tuberose, is bold and intense. It features notes of tuberose (of course), jasmine, orange flower, vanilla, and ylang-ylang. 

This heady fragrance was inspired by the '70s and '80s. It features notes of rose, black pepper, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, and myrrh. Basically, it smells dark and elegant—kind of like a retro cocktail lounge, and I mean that in the best way. 

If Burning Rose is reminiscent of a retro cocktail lounge, then this fragrance is reminiscent of an Italian vacation taken during the height of summer. Notes of citrus, jasmine, and musk combine to create something that's simultaneously fresh, floral, and spicy.  

This warm floral fragrance is made up of lavender essence, orange blossom, and musk accord. 

With orange, patchouli, and Turkish rose, this fragrance is fresh, floral, and perfect for summer. 

This breezy scent from Chloé is a personal favorite. 

Notes of rose and vanilla make this fragrance timeless. 

Fans of warm and spicy florals will love this fragrance. 

Another personal favorite, this fragrance from Gucci features notes of tuberose and jasmine. 

This intoxicating fragrance features notes of blackcurrant, jasmine, and bourbon vanilla.

Found: The Best Bralettes for Women With Big Busts

Shopping for clothes can be challenging, no matter who you are or what you’re looking for. But if you have a bigger bust, the activity can feel like a real chore—especially where comfortable lingerie is concerned. You might have even ruled out bralettes altogether, deeming them insufficient in the support department. But we’re here to tell you that they do exist. To prove our point, we rounded up the best bralettes for big busts. While underwire bras will always offer serious support, sometimes you just want to be as comfortable as possible. So after combing through pages of customer reviews, we’ve discovered the bralettes anyone with a big bust will want to live in. Scroll down to shop them all below, and be sure to check out why women are raving about them.

"I've been trying to find a cute, supportive, affordable bralette for years. There is nothing more disappointing than looking at the cute ones and seeing only for cups A-C. This one answered my prayers! I’m a 36DD and the large is perfect, no side bulge, no double boob, and no uni-boob. Straps don’t dig in and I’m not going to end my day with red welts anywhere."—Reviewer

"These Lace Kiss Bralettes are 'just enough' without being too much. I'm a 34D, and these bralettes hold my breasts comfortably without being overbearing. The lace is very soft and comfortable too. Just as good as braless, only better!"—Reviewer

"I may never wear a 'real' bra again. This provides surprising support for a bralette - enough for daily hiking and mountain biking. Cute straps for tank tops, but full coverage enough that it sits nicely under T-shirts and nicer tops. Makes me look a size smaller without constricting. I wondered if it was too expensive for a basic bralette, but this bra is magic."—Reviewer

"I never thought I could wear a wireless bra, and historically it's been slim pickings for those who need smaller bands and larger cups. This bra is really a game-changer in that it keeps the girls in place and looking natural without an underwire digging into me. I prefer to not have molded cups, so I like this style."—Reviewer

"I have four of these bras. I first bought them for casual weekend wear thinking there wouldn't be enough support. It took zero time for me to get used to no underwire, and now I wear them to work every day. Plenty of support for me (36C), and very comfy. Pretty, too!"—Reviewer

"I wear a DD and am sick of underwire. I have tried several different non-underwire bras and this one is the best. I also love that it is not super expensive."—Reviewer

"Lightweight and comfortable. Had to try a couple sizes to get the right fit. 5'10", 200 pounds, 40C, and I had to go with 2X."—Reviewer

"To start off, this is the softest material I've ever had on a bra. I've never been able to wear a bra that's so soft and comfortable all day. I wear a 42DD, and it's so hard to find a bra that I don't want to take off as soon as I get home. If you're looking for something that'll make you forget you're even wearing a bra, I suggest this one a thousand times!"—Reviewer

"I was so excited when I discovered this bralette! I wear a 34DD, and everything else I tried on either fit in the band but was too small in the cup, or nearly fit in the cup while being many inches too large in the band. I bought the medium, and it was a perfect fit. It provides light support, and I can easily wear it under a tee in public."—Reviewer

"I'm a 32DD and went with a S/M, and it's stretchy enough to accommodate my larger chest. I'll definitely be ordering more."—Reviewer

"I wear this almost every day. If I had the option, I would never take it off. The cotton is so soft you forget you're wearing it. There isn't much support, but it also doesn't create a 'uniboob' either. It's nice, subtle support, and it doesn't crush my 32D bust."—Reviewer

"I usually wear 32C and ordered S for this one. It fits me well and looks pretty."—Reviewer

"I wear a 30E in Cleo underwire bras, and this fit true to size too. I hate wearing underwire bras for more than a few hours because I get bruises on my rib cage, so I have been trying to find a good bralette with an elastic band instead of an underwire and this one from Cleo has the most support."—Reviewer

"These bras are my new favorite!!! They're comfortable, lightly padded, and pretty!!! I'm a 34D, and I find them very supportive, considering they're a bralette. I've tried other brands, and these are by far the best. I highly recommend trying them."—Reviewer

"This is perfect! I was looking for something to wear around the house, a kind of bra that was more than wearing nothing but less than wearing a more structured bra. Pretty sure I could nap in this it’s so comfortable."—Reviewer

"'It's hard to find bras with large cup sizes and smaller relative band sizes—especially ones that don't have underwires and that still look pretty. This one qualifies on all counts."—Reviewer

"At this point, most of the reviews have captured the greatness that is the busty bralette… but I couldn't resist. I'm a 34DD/DDD and have ALWAYS had a difficult time finding bras: Either they're too expensive or just not attractive. The busty bralette is EVERYTHING. It's sexy, comfortable, affordable, and offers good coverage!"—Reviewer

"This bra is so comfortable you might feel guilty wearing it. Great for plunging dress options. Great for big busts. It was so comfortable I bought six. It's my go-to bra."—Reviewer

"I love the colors I got! These bras are so cute and comfortable, and will be perfect for summer when you want those bra-less days but don't have a small enough chest to let them fly free. ;) I'm a 36D, and the large fits great if you don't mind a little less coverage."—Reviewer

"My go-to bra: comfortable and holds my 40C well in the XL. Great for everyday wear at work and weekends."—Reviewer

"I'm a 34DDD and have worn athletic bras for years all the time with work, dress, and casual wear. Am a size 4 to 6, and 5'2". The straps are perfect; nice fit. Highly recommended."—Reviewer

"It's such a struggle to find a bralette that is meant for big boobs and this one is IT!! I love how soft and comfortable it is too. Currently throwing away all my old bralettes that either had no support or would suffocate me."—Reviewer

"I have bought numerous bralettes and had to return them because they don't fit, but these are AMAZING! And also amazing quality! I am a 34E and weigh 143 pounds and I bought a large and I am so happy! If you have big boobs this is the bralette for you!"—Reviewer

"I have been looking for a bralette for a while in a small band, large cup size. There are not many brands that offer wire-free bras in my size: 28F/FF. I read some reviews that said it runs small, so I figured I'd take a chance on it and I'm so glad I did! The band is cut small, so I would size up one band size. The cups are super stretchy so it is forgiving if you are between cup sizes."—Reviewer
