When it comes to the best perfumes for teens, it can be tricky because so many of the fragrances marketed towards teenagers are candy sweet, super fruity and overpowering. It’s hard to find something that doesn’t smell, well, for a lack of a better word: cheap. And teens are usually just entering the world of perfume and makeup, and so it can be easy for them to go overboard. But there are actually a lot of really lovely, understated perfumes that are perfect for teens that don’t smell like a Jolly Rancher factory (not a hyperbole!).

We all remember the very first perfume we ever had. Graduating from drugstore body sprays and wearing “real” perfume for the first time felt like our whole world was about to change. It’s a rite of passage. So all the more reason to find the perfect fragrance for the teen you’re buying for. We’ve pulled together the best perfumes for teens that are age-appropriate, non-tacky and she’s guaranteed to love.
