The more my fragrance collection has grown over the years, the more open-minded I’ve become when shopping for new scents. Sure, I usually gravitate toward a nice designer fragrance or a warm floral scent, but I’ve also discovered some hidden gems with notes I loved unexpectedly simply because I was willing to try something different. A particular type of perfume I never saw myself investing in until now is an earthy one. I know, they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but if done right, earthy perfumes can really transport you to a time, a place, or just make you feel warm and incredibly cozy. Most importantly, the best earthy perfumes will even earn you a compliment or two every time you wear them.
I know you may not believe me when I say there are so many good ones out there, but the rest of the Who What Wear team can back me up on this. I’ve asked my fellow editors to share the unique, earthy perfumes they never thought they would like but now can’t get enough of. For all our favorites, keep scrolling. They’re all so different, but bring us so much comfort when we need it.
