10 Best Fragrance Lotions That Will Make You Smell Amazing



"You smell wonderful" is certainly one of the best compliments you can receive, but what if we told you that this coveted recognition doesn't always come from expensive perfume? 

While you might think of scented body lotions as an afterthought that can be applied quickly and forgotten, we think they're worth a little longer. Not only are lotions one of the easiest and most long-lasting ways to scent your body, they can also add an instant sense of luxury to your daily routine. 

To help you find some of the best-smelling options, we've taken the time to select the best of the best. We're not talking about strong lavender cream that leaves you sticky. 

Our range of lotions are smooth, lightweight and smell as delicate as perfume. They're so addictive that you're sure to find yourself admiring your scent all day long. 

1. Best Overall: Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Pink Body Cream: Glow Recipe's Watermelon Skincare range is one of our favorites, and this body cream smells just as delicious. 

Inspired by the Korean tradition of rubbing watermelon rinds on the skin to soothe irritation, it contains watermelon seed oil, watermelon extract, hyaluronic acid and exfoliating AHAs. 

Although it tastes delicious, it's non-greasy and non-sticky, so you can put it on right away under your clothes or pajamas after applying it. 

2. Best Budget Flamingo Daily Moisturizing Lotion: This day lotion is scented with vetiver and bergamot, making you smell like you just stepped out of the spa. 

Not only does it smell amazing, it also contains squalene to moisturize skin for up to 24 hours, as well as white willow bark and papaya to gently exfoliate. You'll smell as good as you look. 

3. Best match with perfume MatchByredo Gypsy Water Body Lotion: If you're obsessed with Byredo's Gypsy Water fragrance, have you ever thought about using it as a body lotion? Trust us when we say you don't know what you're missing. 

Its scent is as delicate as perfume, a blend of pine needles, sandalwood, lemon, vanilla and bergamot that transport your senses to late autumn forests and campfires. It also provides moisture to the skin with high-quality ingredients such as vitamin E. 

4. Best Splurgediptyque Refreshing Body Lotion: We've yet to find a scent that we love as much as Diptyque, and body lotions are a great way to enjoy them. 

Suitable for all skin types, the brand's "Fresh" lotion is enriched with hydrating ingredients like sweet almond oil and macadamia nut oil, while retaining Diptyque's signature orange blossom water scent. 

5. Best for firm skin: Saltair Pink Beach Body Lotion: There are many beautiful body lotions to choose from in Saltaire, but Pink Beach transports us straight to a tropical island filled with the scent of coconut, almond blossom and vanilla. 

While it smells delicious, it also contains Murumuru Seed Oil, Allantoin, and Coconut Oil to help soften and smooth the skin. Add a little (or a lot) and enjoy a fast-absorbing, intensely hydrating texture. 

6. Best for promoting blood circulation Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Butt Cream: While this iconic cream is named after the Brazilian gluteal muscles, its key ingredient, Guarana¡, is designed to nourish skin all over the body. 

This native Amazonian plant is a powerful form of caffeine that stimulates blood circulation and is especially good for the buttocks, thighs and belly. Your skin will feel smooth and soft, not to mention the brand's signature sweet and nutty scent. 

7. Best for long-lasting hydration Kora Organics Nourishing Hand and Body Lotion: This hand and body lotion is enriched with certified organic botanical ingredients that are as gentle on the earth as they are on your skin. 

It contains antioxidant-rich microalgae and noni to soften skin, as well as deeply hydrating ceramides for long-lasting hydration. It also smells of rose, geranium and basil. 


8. Best Moroccan Oil Fast-Absorbing Body Lotion: If your skin needs lots of moisture but you don’t like the sticky, heavy feel of some lotions, may we recommend a product from Moroccanoil?
Although the texture is light and fast-absorbing, it also contains highly moisturizing ingredients, such as argan oil, toon oil and evening primrose oil. Aloe vera leaf extract also helps make skin softer and smoother. 

9. Best Long Lasting Fragrance Philosophy Pure Grace Body Lotion
There's nothing like the feeling of a fresh shower, and this moisturizing lotion will make the results last longer. Its signature scent combines water lily, leafy greens and frosty musk with hydrating vitamin E and skin-nourishing natural extracts. Some reviewers noted that the smell wasn't as strong as before, but we don't think that was the deciding factor. 

10. Best for gifting: Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Body & Hand Lotion
Jo Malone's scent is instantly recognizable, and with this lotion you can enjoy one of her most popular scents throughout the day. It contains delicate scents of pomegranate, pink pepper and casablanca lily, and uses coconut oil to deeply hydrate the skin. Massage it onto your body after your morning shower and place it on your desk to keep your hands moisturized throughout the day. 

Jo Malone's signature packaging makes it the chicest gift, too!
final verdict
Glow Recipe's Watermelon Glow Pink Moisturizer is our favorite moisturizer that brings a touch of heaven to everyday life. It smells great and is packed with skin-loving ingredients that absorb quickly and instantly moisturize your skin. When it comes to perfecting an on-trend fragrance, we think it doesn't get any better than Byredo Gypsy Water Body Lotion. 

Apply lather before a date or dinner to keep your scent scented all night long.
What to look for in a scented lotion
Package
Body lotion usually comes in a pump bottle or jar. Generally speaking, pumps make the contents more hygienic because you don't have to dip your fingers into them every time you use them. The pump bottle also doesn't expose the lotion to air, which can affect some of the ingredients. Jars, on the other hand, make it easier to scoop out every last bit of lotion, which means less waste.

raw material
If you have very dry skin, look for ingredients like glycerin, urea, and hyaluronic acid in scented lotions. 

These moisturizers absorb quickly and keep skin hydrated - the lotion won't stick to clothes or pajamas. Natural ingredients like almond oil and macadamia oil are also amazing sources of moisture, and you can find them in many lotions. Acids like glycolic acid and salicylic acid (which you'll find in Drunk Elephant's T.L.C Glycolic Acid Body Lotion) can also add an exfoliating element to the lotion, leaving skin radiant and smoother. They are also particularly useful for treating rough skin patches and improving conditions such as keratosis pilaris on the back of the arms.
