Fragrance comes in many different forms these days. From standard bottles to solid colognes, there's plenty of options around to try out. According to experts, however, oil perfumes are the best out of all the different kinds.

Not everyone is into the feeling of oil on their skin. If you aren't opposed to the idea, then you'll be getting the most out of scents as oil perfumes absorb and sink into your skin (you know, because they don't need alcohol like spritz perfumes), making them last all day long. Here are seven great oil perfumes to start your collection.

Le Labo is way ahead when it comes to oil perfumes. Pretty much every scent in the brand's selection is available in oil form. Plus, it's much cheaper compared to a full bottle, especially when you think about the long-lasting part of it all. Why not pick up the classic Santal 33 in oil form the next time your bottle runs out? 

2| Malin + Goetz Dark Rum Roll-On Perfume Oil 9ml

Though the name Dark Rum evokes all things black and evening, this scent is actually much more suited for the day. That's thanks to its notes of bergamot, plum, leather, and rum with milk, amber, and patchouli.

That Creed Aventus, one of the most popular and iconic scents, is available as a perfumed oil is telling of the rise of the underappreciated oil form. According to Creed, alcohol-free perfumed oils are a "contemporary offering to meet the demands of today's eco-minded clients." Not only can you get more sillage with Aventus oil, you also get mild conditioning for the skin.

4| Diptyque L'Ombre dans L'Eau Perfume Oil Roll-On 15ml
