Narciso Rodriguez for Her Eau de Toilette
Scents with prominent musky notes may not be top of mind for a fresh everyday spritz, but Narciso Rodriguez for Her has such a refined, clean finish on the skin that isn't overwhelming. It's worth a try if you've been meaning to dip your toes into sultrier fragrances.
