Best Gender Neutral Fragrance: Maison Francis Kurkdjian gentle Fluidity Gold Edition (P11,350, 70ml)

Tester Review: "Every time I wear this fragrance, I receive a minimum of two compliments and one 'what perfume are you wearing?' for that day alone. Thing is, though, it's not even a loud scent. It's a gender-neutral warm, ambery vanilla, which just happens to have out-of-this-world sillage (I've been told that they can still smell this long after I've left the room). This has since become one of my signature scents, and writing this now honestly feels like spilling a big secret." - Nicole Arcano, Beauty Editor

SHOP: Available in Adora, Greenbelt 5

Best Citrus Fragrance: Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Forever Pour Femme (P6650, 100ml)

Tester Review: "I personally prefer fragrances that are a mix of floral and fruity scents and that is what you get from this blend. It has a light and feminine scent without it being too overpowering and it sits really beautifully on the skin as it naturally incorporates itself into your natural scent. Its clean scent is perfect as an everyday fragrance that lasts all day!" - Chelsea Garcia, Preview Creative Collective

Best Woody Fragrance: Tom Ford Oud Wood (P12,600)

Tester Review: "Tom Ford Oud Wood possesses the kind of allure one would expect from a luxury fragrance with rare oud, sandalwood, and amber. It's a dark and smoky blend that I instictively pair with all-black outfits, because that seems like the most appropriate backdrop for it. Once in-person events are a thing again, I can definitely see myself wearing this to black tie occasions and nights out." - Nicole Arcano, Beauty Editor

SHOP: Available in Rustan's Makati
