The art of scent is one that takes time to master, but is a joyous journey in every step. One of our favorite discoveries is hair perfume, which is as straight-to-the-point as it sounds. They’re different from your regular fragrance in that their alcohol content is lower, meaning they're less likely to strip the natural oils and moisture in your locks. They’re gentler as well, and often, come with hydrating ingredients to work double-duty.
In our search for the best hair fragrances to get your hands on, we stumbled upon those of feminine scent profiles (think rose gardens), beachy aromas (coconut notes were a favorite), and more. Whether you’re using them as another layer of scent, or for the practical purpose of moisturizing your locks, you’re sure to find something you love.
Say hello to fragrant, shiny hair with our picks:
10 Best Hair Perfumes for Luxuriously Fragrant Tresses
1. Diptyque Eau Rose Hair Mist
A rose fragrance is a classic, but some blends can feel a bit dated. Luckily, Diptyque’s Eau Rose Hair Mist is a refreshing take on the scent, as the aroma of rose is blended with deeper notes of litchi, bergamot, and black currant. A few spritzes of this leaves you smelling like a rose, but in its completeness–green leaves, stem, and all.

2. Dior Miss Dior Hair Mist
The Miss Dior scent is a signature of the fashion house, and a celebrated one at that. It’s seen many reincarnations, one of which is this adorably bottled hair mist. Presenting notes of bergamot, rose, and musk, this fragrance is both sweet and seductive. Paired with your best Parisian-inspired ensemble, you’ll have the key to that je ne sais quoi.

3. Jo Malone London Wild Bluebell Hair Mist
Jo Malone’s Wild Bluebell Hair Mist is crisp, clean, and earthy. It’s the perfect scent to keep in your purse for a pick-me-up spritz in the middle of the day. Although wearing it on its own is enough to make you feel refreshed, the scent is light enough to blend with another perfume (we’re taking to some of our Jo Malone favorites for that).

4. Human Nature Conditioning Hair Mist
A two-in-one product is always a welcome treat. Human Nature’s Conditioning Hair Mist looks to both fragrancing and conditioning the hair through a blend of their signature natural ingredients. One of these is Tropical Bloom, which boasts of a refreshing, summer-ready whiff and a jojoba oil-infused formula that moisturizes the strands.

5. Snoe Beauty Body Ritual Recipes Sweet Hair & Body Glazer
From the “recipes” series of Snoe Beauty’s body care products, this Hair & Body Glazer smells good enough to eat! The mist sets to capture the aroma of a strawberry smoothie, with a scent profile that’s both fruity and sweet. It’s made to work for both your hair and skin, so after giving your locks a spritz, spray it all over too.

6. Boutique Mandarin, Basil & Grapefruit Hair & Body Mist
The Boutique Mandarin, Basil, & Grapefruit Hair & Body Mist sees a concoction of varying aromas that when blended together, just make sense. The deep, peppery notes balance the upbeat, refreshing ones, making for a transitional scent to match any outfit, event, location, or season. If your perfume collection needs a true all-around fragrance, look to this mist.

7. Ouai Wave Spray
Ouai’s Wave Spray captures the feeling of summer and puts it in a bottle. This hair mist is made for beach waves, giving a long-holding yet non-crunchy texture for that effortlessly tousled look. It’s fragranced with Ouai Number 2, one of the brand’s signature blends that’s a Bondi Beach-inspired concoction of Italian lemon, amber, and white musk.

8. Shea Moisture Hold and Shine Mist
A brand beloved for their healthy ingredients (just ask the CGM girls), Shea Moisture definitely knows how to make a covetable hair product. Their Hold and Shine Moisture Mist is hydrating, taming, and shine-making all in one. Its fragrance also matches up–a coconut-hibiscus blend that smells perfect for summer, but is good all year round.

9. Tokyo Posh Hair Shield Hair Sanitizer
If you think we’ve covered all bases in terms of sanitizing products–think again. During the COVID-19 pandemic, hair extension salon Tokyo Posh developed a sanitizing hair mist to kill germs, tame frizz, and moisturize. Aptly named Hair Shield, this fragranced mist is that thing we didn’t know we needed, but now can’t live without. Plus, it comes in a relatively purse-friendly size that lets us tote it around easily.

10. Kérastase Chronologiste Parfum Hair Oil
If you prefer an oilier consistency than what you would get with a mist, look to Kérastase’s Chronologiste Parfum Hair Oil. It’s made with a concoction of ingredients to give your hair a seductive scent (thanks to notes of tea rose, light woods, and musk) and an out-of-this-world shine. You can use it before and after styling your hair, applying one to two pumps of the product through the lengths and ends.
