Cannabis beauty products are definitely trending. But when it comes to fragrance, many of us are afraid to embrace the herbal aroma. (Weed’s trademark scent can be pretty off-putting, not exactly something we want to spray all over.) But believe it or not, there are some cannabis fragrances that smell downright delightful. No, really.
The trick when shopping for cannabis scents is to always go for richer, more complex bases. Preferably ones without a strong fruity finish. Bergamot or moss accord add a real richness to cannabis’ earthy notes, transforming it into a scent you’ll be more than willing to rock all day long. The aromas are also pretty universal. So anyone can flaunt them all year long. Save some funds by sharing one with your partner. Then you can smell these fragrances over and over.
The other key is to stick to your usual go-to scents. Which means seeking out perfumes boasting hints of cannabis-infused oil or flowers. And don’t shy away from florals — they often complement cannabis well and bring out its freshness.
There’s never been a better time (or day for that matter) to try out cannabis fragrances. Here are the best perfumes that’ll make you a cannabis convert.
