One of the easiest ways to turn heads when you walk into a room — and the people around you remember that moment — is your scent.
OK, but it’s actually true. A 2010 research study by the American Journal of Psychology found that certain smells associated with memories are significantly more emotionally evocative and positive. So, if you’re like me and are an introvert who actually loves attention, let me introduce you to the classic perfume that gets me endless amounts of compliments: TOCCA Florence Eau de Parfum.
Every time I spritz on this Paris-inspired perfume, I suddenly feel like I’m in an episode of Emily in Paris but chicer and way less cringe. And I know I smell really, really good — because everyone tells me.
TOCCA Florence Eau de Parfum, $80
The romantic perfume features an aromatic floral blend of bergamot, pear and gardenia. The more advanced scent breakdown includes top notes of Italian bergamot, grapefruit leaves, green pear and apple, while middle notes are made up of ivory gardenia, crushed violet petals, jasmine, tuberose and blue iris. Finally, the base notes are blond wood and white musk.
TL;DR: This musky floral perfume smells like everyone’s favorite effortless French girl vibe.
Look, I’m not going to pretend I am the authority on what women in Paris are actually wearing. I am not a French girl, nor have I ever lived in Paris. What I do know is that TOCCA wanted to create the smell and aura of Paris with the Florence Eau de Parfum, and now everyone around me can’t stop complimenting my scent.
Plus, my fiancé also subconsciously ups the PDA whenever I’m wearing it, which is always a fun bonus.
You can also shop the floral TOCCA perfume at Nordstrom, Anthropologie, Blue Mercury and straight from the TOCCA website.
And because good karma exists, this French girl scent isn’t just an Eau de Parfum. You can also shop the TOCCA Florence fragrance as a hand cream, candle, hair fragrance, body lotion and more. Yes, I do own all of them. What about it?
TOCCA Florence Candela, $46
Uniquely beautiful and richly fragranced with the Paris-inspired scent, this luxurious hand-poured candle is a must for those moments when you want to feel fancy.
TOCCA Florence Crema da Mano, $10
This lightly fragrant, rich hand cream absorbs super quickly and will leave your skin feeling soft and silky thanks to its natural extracts from shea butter, avocado oil and aloe.
TOCCA Florence Hair Fragrance, $38
Different than a regular perfume, hair fragrance contains a smaller percentage of alcohol so as not to dry out your tresses. TOCCA’s lightweight hair fragrance also contains a delicate blend of moisturizing oils, providing a veil of fragrance and subtle shine.
TOCCA Florence Crema de Corpo, $24
Formulated with a blend of sweet almond oil, shea butter and honey, this rich body lotion moisturizes and soothes dry, sensitive skin. The luxurious lotion also absorbs quickly, leaving behind silky skin scented with Florence’s signature bergamot and gardenia.
