Chanel Chance Eau Vive Hair Mist, $59.

"This is great for masking unsexy odours from lunching out at the hawker centre. It is easy to use, fits in my handbag and leaves my hair smelling fresh and floral without drying it out. I also love using this as a midday refresher or as a body fragrance as it doesn't leave my skin feeling dry." - Tania Lim, 25, marketing executive

Byredo Blanche Hair Perfume, $78.

"I can't get enough of this! One spritz is all it takes to leave hair smelling oh-so-clean. The long-lasting scent, which reminds me of freshly done laundry, lingers through the day and masks any unpleasant odours instantly. I can't stop flipping my hair to get a whiff of the scent." - Vanessa Ang, 27, accounts executive

09 Mar 2016

Miss Dior Hair Mist, $70.

"If you are a fan of the warm, citrusy Miss Dior scent, you'll love this. It left my hair smelling feminine with soft floral and citrus notes that lingered throughout the day. I like it so much, I don't even use my daily perfume any more." Chew Huimin, 28, graphic designer

09 Mar 2016

Balmain Paris Hair Couture Silk Perfume, $63.

"This summer-inspired fragrance didn't just leave my hair smelling fresh and sweet, it gave it a glossy sheen, too. This also acts as a leave-in conditioner. It didn't weigh my hair down and left it tangle-free the entire day. Just wish it came in a smaller bottle so I could take it everywhere with me." - Germaine Phua, 31, investment planner

Percy & Reed Eau My Goodness Shine & Fragrance Spray, $45.
09 Mar 2016

Percy & Reed Eau My Goodness Shine & Fragrance Spray, $45.

"This is really a fragrance and shine spray rolled into one. I misted the non-greasy formula above my head and let it settle evenly on my hair. It left my tresses shiny with a trace of rose and honey, which made the most romantic smell to me." Lina Goh, 30, events manager

For times when you want to freshen up tresses but don't have time to shampoo, try a hair fragrance instead. They are designed to leave strands smelling scent-sational, and mask unsexy odours in a jiffy. Some of them even nourish and moisturise locks too.
