Whether you've got a perfume for every month of the year, your single go-to bottle that's been on repeat since you were 18, or you consider deodorant your fragrance (cucumber melon, we know who you are), it isn't a bad time to think about a new scent.
We suggest breaking away from the department store counter and checking out some of the local, small batch, independent perfumes available around the city. Stores like Dalaga are coming up with their own fragrance lines, brands like D.S. and Durga focus on the the art of the process, and shops like Santa Maria Novella produce scents filled with history (they were founded in 1212!). Click through the gallery above for eleven indie fragrances to start your year off fresh.—Nicola Fumo
