If Lionel Richie’s 1984 hit taught us anything, it’s the importance of saying, “Hello.—and nothing says it better than this standout fragrance. A longtime Birchbox best-seller, Harvey Prince’s Hello perfectly balances top notes of Meyer lemons and Satsuma mandarin with summery floral scents like forsythia and pink plumeria. We could wax poetic about its hypnotic powers, but we’ll let these Harvey Prince fans take over:

"I don’t usually bother with perfumes, but this fragrance is so delightful it’s worth making an exception! The scent is light, dynamic, and distinctive. And while scents are definitely a subjective thing (my sister and I are constantly at odds over what scents we like and dislike), I can honestly say when I wore this everyone I interacted with commented positively on how great I smelled! - Beth

"Oh the wonders of Harvey Prince! This is the first perfume company I fell in love with. I love that it makes me [feel] more cheerful and bubbly—Any time I dread having to make an acquaintance of someone, I spritz a little of this and voilà! I’m suddenly much more excited and ready to take on the world. Thank you Birchbox for opening my eyes to such a wonderful fragrance, and thank you Harvey Prince for making such a perfect concoction! Strongly recommend!" Heather

"As one reviewer said, this is a very "optimistic" perfume, with wonderful floral and citrus scents. My boyfriend, who normally grimaces when I put on perfume, kept coming over to smell the scent! Definitely a keeper." - Kate

These ladies have us convinced—have you tried this one-of-a-kind fragrance?

Not Quite a Cookie But Still Pretty Delicious: Harvey Prince Skinny Chic

I love brands with a good back story, and it doesn’t get much better than Harvey Prince. Here’s the Cliff’s Notes version: brothers Shaan Hathiramani and Raj Hathiramani create a scent for their mother; mom loves scent; scent explodes into an international fragrance business. Sheesh, the best present I ever gave my mom was an iPad. 

Beyond making legions of kids feel like inadequate parental parent-gifters, Harvey Prince is all about creating functional fragrances. (Read: scents that do more than smell nice.) Their first creation, Ageless, features notes designed to make you feel more youthful; Eau Flirt sneakily includes ingredients proven to attract the opposite sex; and Hello has layers of optimistic citrus and florals.
