Brands offer a seductive take on floral scents for fall and winter, blending strong florals with spicy and woody notes. Sana Jardin’s Jaipur Chant and Victoria’s Secret Lotus Desire mean to evoke an evening garden.
Millennials are transforming the way brands do business. As the largest and most diverse consumer group, millennials demand transparency, seek authenticity, and embrace individuality. It’s no wonder they’re driving some of the most influential trends in the fragrance industry. Here are the top millennial fragrance trends to keep in mind.
Millennials want products tailored to them as an individual— and they don’t want to smell like everyone else. Forbes reports that 23% of consumers would try a more expensive personal care product if it had a unique aroma.
Products with unusual fragrance notes (think saffron, cannabis, and smoke) are meeting this demand. Niche scents will likely continue gaining popularity since, according to NPD Group, millennials curate fragrance wardrobes that reflect their different personalities and moods.
From craft beer to reclaimed wood furniture, millennials are choosing products with authentic stories of craftsmanship. Fragrance brands are tapping into the trend by marketing artisan experiences.
A growing number of brands such as Phlur and Henry Rose spotlight the Perfumers who created their fragrances on their websites. And when you shop at Le Labo in-store, the Sales Associate hand-blends the bottle before your eyes.
Compared to previous generations, millennial consumers are focused on leading healthy lifestyles and supporting ecofriendly companies. They choose clean products which often means natural. In fact, 75% of millennial women prefer buying natural products, Grand View Research reports.
Popular natural fragrance claims include “made with essential oils” and “sustainable.” While fragrances made with essential oils can include both synthetic and natural aromas, a growing number of brands use 100% natural scents to appeal to savvy consumers.
Try our fragrances inspired by the latest millennial trends.
Iredale Eau de Parfum Inspired by the wreckage of the Peter Iredale on the shores of the Pacific Northwest, the essence of smoldering driftwood intermingles with notes of surf and sea. Mineral accords converge with salty brine, flotsam, and ambergris, while hints of balsam fir, peppercorn, and oud suggest the temperate rainforest just off the shoreline.
Brit Royale A British twist on the classic fougere. Airy top notes of pepper and cardamom meld with the comforts of tea, while elemi and ginger diffuse a peppery warmth throughout the base. A subtle whisper of shaving cream adds a hint of well-groomed charm along with the touch of worn leather luggage blending to aged vetiver wood.
Nude Beach A beachside twist on the skin scent trend. Warm spice notes combine with cool eucalyptus, juicy melon and sheer water lily to evoke the warmth of sun and wet sand on skin, drifting to a sensual base of crushed seashells, musk and amber.
Vetiver Orris The tension between earthy and sweet notes fills this fragrance with a sense of mystery. A delicate accord of powder-sweet violet and jasmine opens while myrhh and patchouli radiate on a dark base of orris root and vetiver.
Natural Glacier This all-natural fragrance brings an appealing fruity depth to the cool clean of spearmint in a way that works well in most product types. Notes of fresh-squeezed lime and juicy melon enhance a heart of natural spearmint leaf.

Orchidia Fragrances took to storytelling this year at the 39th Annual NYSCC Suppliers’ Day, one of the largest events on the cosmetic industry calendar in North America. Thousands gathered at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York on May 15-16 to showcase the latest innovations in personal care and beauty products.
Visitors to Orchidia’s booth were met with whimsical depictions of eight fictional dragons from various short stories, novels, and film. Displayed in a trophy-like fashion, these creatures were mounted with push buttons to release billowing aromatic smoke, each having its own unique scent. Notes of sea air and Egyptian neroli described the breath of Leviathan, a Biblical sea serpent, while more gourmand notes of butterbeer, whisky, and sweets captured the magic of the Hungarian Horntail from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. With a medieval throne positioned next to the dragons, attendees were encouraged to dress in costume, snap a selfie, and share their experience.
Another section of the booth captivated attendees through ancient Egyptian folklore. Visitors completed puzzles and solved riddles to unlock the mystery of Manetho’s secret fragrance, Kyphi, a perfume embodying the beauty and warmth of ancient Egypt. Once completed, the fragrance was bottled and given to each participant as a reminder of their travel through time.
