Stuck in a perfume rut? Not sure what to buy your bestie for their birthday? Looking for a cheaper alternative to your fave scent?

How to use our Fragrance Finder:
Match my Favourite
It’s really easy. Pop your favourite (or your giftee’s favourite) scent into the search bar and let our magical expert-backed perfume finder discover new scent matches. In seconds, you’ll immediately see a selection of recommended fragrances and at a glance you’ll spot the common notes, the percentage of the match, and the price (which is perfect if you’re trying to make more affordable scent swaps!).
If you’re really stuck for perfume ideas with no starter scent to jump off from, then it’s time to let our experts guide you.
Our specially curated questionnaire will guide you through all the possible deciding avenues of choosing a perfume including who you’re buying it for, what kind of fragrance you or your recipient likes wearing (even if you don’t know a specific scent, we have lots of categories for you to select from) and your desired price point. We have thought of everything! All you need to do is input your answers and discover scents you’ll wish you’d heard of before.
Why our Fragrance Finder Changes the Game
Sometimes we return to the same fragrance time and time again because it’s familiar, safe, and easy. There’s an overwhelming amount of choice on the market as well as fragrance content out there –hands up if you spend way too many hours scrolling PerfumeTok! Which is exactly why we built our fragrance finder – to cut through all the noise and help you discover new scents that are note-perfect.
Whether you use it to find fragrance dupes, your signature scent, or find a fragrance by notes, our handy tool won’t let you down! And unlike other perfume notes finders out there, it’s backed by an entire team of industry-leading experts. Let’s see it at work…
