Some items become basic if too many people buy ’em. Fragrances simply never fall under that umbrella: If they’re good, they’re good.
That’s why, even as more and more influencers have hopped on the bandwagon, Gypsy Water by Byredo has remained an enduring fan favorite. Boasting near-perfect reviews, the best-selling fragrance smells of lemon, juniper berries, vanilla and sandalwood.
Calling the scent “earthy without being musky or heavy,” one reviewer said the “light” fragrance “kept me smelling my wrists all day long.”
“It’s not the kind of smell that fills the room when you walk in, but you catch it in little waves and it always makes people lean in,” another wrote. “I barely notice it on my skin, then miss it when I haven’t put it on.”

Gypsy Water is so widely adored, it’s spawned other hard-to-resist products in the same scent. Among them is a body cream and a hair perfume, both of which are currently 25 percent off in Nordstrom’s sitewide sale.
“Perfect for summer but I can’t live without it all year,” one reviewer gushed of the hair mist, while another added, “The bottle is not so big, but it will last you a lot, as you only need to spray a little on your roots.”
