Britney Spears is pregnant, JLo and Ben Affleck are engaged and Avril Lavigne is making music again. There's certainly no doubt the Y2K trend is back and it's here to stay.

Our Instagram feeds are full of '90s neon, cargo pants and keyhole cut-outs.

As Justin Timberlake said 'What goes around comes all the way back around'. (But let's hope he leaves that double denim look in 2001...)

All that's missing is your favourite perfume sitting on your desk next to your lava lamp.

Well never fear, because we've got you covered with 11 nostalgic perfumes that you can still get your hands on today.

Check out: The best 90s/00s perfumes


The iconic '90s/'00s scents back on the scene

Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Eau De Toilette Women's Perfume Spray 30ml1 of 11

Jean Paul Gaultier Classique

Sweet rose, fruity orange blossom and with a base of amber and vanilla – Jean Paul Gaultier produced a real '90s Classique in 1993. The bold and beautiful oriental fragrance became iconic for its sexy bottle and intoxicating aroma. Known as THE fragrance of the 90s, the Y2K movement is bringing it back. We expect it to be around for years to come.

Calvin Klein CK One Eau De Toilette Unisex Perfume 200ml2 of 11

CK One

With its revolutionary frosted bottle and minimalist packaging, CK The One hit the shelves in 1994 at the height of supermodel mania – think Kate Moss and that beach shoot. Could this refreshingly crisp and cool scent be 'The One' for you?

Clinique Happy Women's Perfume Spray 100ml3 of 11

Clinique Happy

This fresh and summery scent will matched perfectly in 1998 with your Rachel Green inspired floral strappy dress. With its hint of citrus, this perfume does exactly what it says on the tin - makes you happy. And when has Rach ever gone out of style?

Calvin Klein Eternity Eau De Parfum Women's Perfume Spray 50ml4 of 11

Calvin Klein Eternity

Created in 1988 – at the cusp of the 90s era – Calvin Klein's Eternity brings together class and contemporary fragrances that you will love for an Eternity. Inspired by the idea of everlasting love, the scents of lily, violet, jasmine and rose encapsulate the romantic era.

Britney Spears Curious Eau De Parfum Women's Perfume Spray (100ml)5 of 11

Britney Spears Curious

With Louisiana magnolia and sensual vanilla-infused musk, Britney Spears' first fragrance was an instant hit and is still sparking curiosity among young women today. The Free Britney movement has meant Britney is back in the spotlight and this scent will put you under that bright light too.

GHOST Eau De Toilette Spray 50ml6 of 11


As the millennium ball dropped in 2000, so did GHOST. The first fragrance for the designer brand has stood the test of time with its fragrance of jasmine, spicy sandalwood and a hint of apricot. The epitome of the Y2K era.

DKNY Be Delicious Eau De Parfum Women's Perfume Spray 100ml7 of 11

DKNY Be Delicious

Launched in 2004 at the conclusion (or so we thought) of the Carrie Bradshaw and Mr Big story, DKYN Be Delicious is no poisoned New York apple. The well-balanced scent brings together exotic flowers with fruits and a woody finish making it a sophisticated and recognisable fragrance. Almost as iconic as Miss Bradshaw herself.

Jennifer Lopez Glow Eau De Toilette Women's Perfume Spray 150ml8 of 11

JLo GLow

While we were busy pretending to be Jenny from the Block in 2005, Jenny was working on a new single Glow and the release of her fruity and floral fragrance of the same name. This lively and uplifting scent screams noughties, with its rhinestone logo and hints of Italian orange and Sicilian lemon. A must have as the Y2K trend continues to thrive.

Thierry Mugler Alien Eau De Parfum Women's Perfume Spray (30ml)9 of 11

Thierry Mugler Alien

Alien, released in 2005, is the best-known fragrance by late fashion designer Thierry Mugler. With its distinct purple bottle and rich woody and floral scent, it's no wonder the perfume has Tik Tok-ers galore declaring it their signature scent. The hashtag #alienperfume has gained 1.2 million views so far and we imagine this best-selling perfume will stick around far past its TikTok hype.

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Eau De Parfum Women's Perfume Spray 50ml10 of 11

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy

Viva La Juicy was a go to for celebrities like Taylor Swift in 2008. This fragrance of wild berries, mandarins and honeysuckle, has a base of amber, caramel and praline, summing up the sweet scent of the noughties. As Juicy Couture tracksuits make their comeback, it's no surprise this decadent perfume will be adorning our wrists this year.

Vera Wang Princess Eau De Toilette Women's Perfume 100ml11 of 11

Vera Wang Princess

The perfect perfume for the modern-day princess – Vera Wang's Princess is unmistakable with its purple heart-shaped bottle that wouldn't be out of place on the Princess of Genovia's vanity. The fruity and floral scent blends apple, waterlily, guava and the Tahitian tiare flower. This epitome of the '00s era is finding a brand new audience in 2022.
