Best Chypre Fragrances of 2023

Citrus, oak moss, patchouli, and labdanum. What happens when you combine all of those beautiful notes? You get a gorgeous Chypre fragrance. Stemming from the French word for Cyprus (which is where many of those aforementioned ingredients grow), Chypre fragrances offer a harmonious array of potent notes that are sophisticated, elegant, and incredibly versatile.

While most Chypre perfumes emphasize those core notes, you’ll find stylish scents in plenty of variations that still fall under the Chypre category, like floral, fruity, green, woody, or even leather. Not sure where to start? We’ve rounded up all of the best Chypre perfumes!
