Which are the top 10 fragrances for women ? So I think there are so many fragrances out these days, so many perfumes that people feel overwhelmed they don’t know which to buy they all look the same they all look different and there’s all the different brand names, some you know, some you don’t. I don’t exactly know what the answer is but I think it’s about finding your favorite and then sticking to ones that are fairly similar to that unless you like to completely mix it up. For me there are some perfumes that have been around for a while or consistently good I consistently smell on other people and they’re always there they’re always selling well and they’re basically just good perfumes and especially if you’re looking to buy someone a perfume as a gift, I think there are quite a number that are going to be quite safe. People know them, they recognize them maybe they know someone else who wears them and they’re just good solid perfume. So I’m gonna take you through the top 10 lady’s perfumes that are available right now.
So the first one, 10th on the list is the Lancome La Vie est Belle. This is the perfume which i think is marketed at women of all ages. We’ve got Julia Roberts as the ambassador I think. She’s one of these girls who’s she’s kind of the girl next door but she’s also quite glamorous. She’s funny but she’s smart and she’s just sort of everything for everybody and I think that’s what they were trying to achieve with this perfume. It’s not too sweet and it’s not too heavy and I just think it’s an all-round solid perfume. I really like wearing it and I think it’s hard to go wrong with that one.
So number 9 on the list is the Tom Ford Black Orchid. Most people have heard of this perfume. It’s something that’s quite expensive. I think it’s well over a hundred pounds and personally I think the Tom Ford perfumes is more like a boutique perfume. They’re not in the normal perfume section. I personally think that overpriced and you’re paying for the branding. However this is one of those perfumes that you do smell on people that people really really love and will buy again and again and again and because it’s such a premium brand and premium product if someone was to receive it as a gift, I think they would be very very happy with it. So if you see it, try it smell it see what you think. It’s a little bit different and it’s a little bit sort of more woody it’s not particularly feminine as you can tell by the bottle, but I think it’s an all-round safe perfume.
Number 8 is a what’s now a traditional and Chanel perfume I guess, Chanel Chance. So this is probably towards the younger age group in terms of its marketing, probably I’d say under 30 under 35. I think this is a really good gift if you were getting a teenager a present. You wanted to get them their first really nice, good quality perfume. You can smell it on people, it requires quite a lot of sprays given, but you can smell it on people and it’s a very pleasant lively feminine smell. Again I don’t think you can really go wrong with Chanel Chance.
So number 7 is a John Paul Gaultier there’s the ladies and the male version of these and the ladies has been around probably about 20 years. It’s a vanilla fragrance if you like vanilla then this is for you. It’s consistently a best-seller and they bring it out in different outfits and editions each year but it’s the same smell every time and if you like sweet vanilla sort of like a candy fragrance, then this is something that you can wear, people will be able to smell it, it will last really well, I think it’s a good quality perfume it’s made well and and this is another one which I think we’ll see around four five ten fifteen twenty more years to come. This is a consistent good selling perfume and if you like vanilla it’s the one for you.
Number 6 I’ve gone for Thierry Mugler’s Angel. Now this is another vanilla and praline type fragrance again if you like sweet this would be good for you. Personally, I wouldn’t really wear the cherry Mugler fragrances but I recognize that they are good, good fragrances they all last really well. When people wear them you can smell them and as Angels, one of those things that becomes like your signature scent and so I hats off to this. Really good fragrances, really rate them, they’re just a bit too heavy for me but if you like something that’s really hard-hitting and you like the sweeter end of things and Angels definitely a really good bet and the bottle is beautiful. The star shape and the blue liquid, and I just think it’s really cool.
Number five I have gone for the other best-selling Thierry Mugler fragrance which is Alien. I first learned about this fragrance basically, when it first came out, I would go into every nightclub and there would be the same smell and after a while, I realized that this smell was Alien and all the girls were wearing it and that’s how powerful it was. You just need a number of people wearing it in a room and the entire like massive room will smell of Alien. So if anything this is probably stronger than Angel. It’s a heavy heavy heavy floral perfume. It’s deep, it’s strong, it means business so if you want a really hard-hitting perfume, I mean it’s called Alien because it really is kind of out of this world. It’s not messing about, it’s not sort of oh maybe I’m sort of pink nice flower or well maybe I’m sort of softly softly gentle perfume, no, this is like – here’s my smell it’s in your face, and so if you want a perfume like that then this is definitely the one for you.
So number 4, I’ve gone for Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb. This is another one that’s been out for quite a while now. You smell it on people. People love it, people buy it again and again and it becomes people’s signature scent. It’s sort of heavy Patchouli, sweet and feminine smell but it’s strong so it lasts. It’s not too sort of light and airy fairy. I think this is good for pretty much every female age group there. I think it tends to be worn by people like in their twenties and I think if you’re a girly girl and you like feminine smells then this is definitely one to try. If you’re looking for something that’s gonna last it’s the kind of thing you can spray on your clothing and then if you pick up your clothing the next day it still smells of it and it makes your wardrobe smell of it.
So number 3 is an oceanic perfume, Issey Miyake. Now this perfume boasts both the men and the women’s. I would say a probably one of if not the best at lasting when it comes to perfumes. It becomes people’s signature scent. If anything you can’t get away from the smell. All the clothes, everything just smells of it. It lasts forever apparently and you don’t really have to spray that much. It’s very similar to Dolce and Gabbana light blue, except it’s better. It’s the same price but it lasts five ten times better so if you wear Dolce & Gabbana light blue, stop buying it, it’s rubbish and get Issey Miyake instead because it smells the same. Everyone I know that wears this, both the male and the female. I can smell them a mile off and the moment I smell the fragrance, it makes me think of them straight away and if you like those oceanic smells and Armani Acqua Di Gio is the other one that it’s similar to if you like those again, not floral not sweet, this is the one for you. I can’t recommend it enough and the bottles really cool and different. It’s just cool isn’t it ? So cool.
Okay so number 2 is Narciso Rodriguez. Now this perfume is made by the same people that make John Paul Gaultier and Issey Miyake. I really rate this company. I think they make really good quality perfumes that lasts and this is of course no exception. It’s one of those perfumes that I can recognize and smell straight away. There’s not many other perfumes like it. It smells almost powdery and but it’s very very feminine. I think it’s really classy smell. I think it’s something that’s really good for work as well as for and evenings and I think that it’s a very clever perfume. It doesn’t smell like flowers it doesn’t smell like sweets. It’s hard to describe what it smells like but it smells really nice. So if you’re looking for something and you don’t want something really floral or something very girly but you don’t want something that’s like heavy and intense then this is a really really good option. I think it just smells lovely. I think it’s a lovely fantastic perfume and I will love it forever.
Okay so drumroll um number 1 perfume in my opinion I think is chanel Coco Mademoiselle. Show me someone who doesn’t like this fragrance. It’s classy, the bottles brilliant, it’s got the Chanel and branding behind it, So when it comes as a gift there’s not many women in the world that don’t want to receive a Chanel perfume right? It smells like homely feminine cozy curling up by the fire, going out for drinks on a winter’s evening, it’s it’s a lovely lovely fragrance and is it the best fragrance for lasting in the whole world? Probably not and I wouldn’t buy the Eau de Toilette but the Eau de Parfum I think is basically such a nice classy gif. The marketing around it is obviously fantastic..ish now fair enough. But if you are looking for a new perfume and you haven’t smelt this then you have to smell it because it’s a classic. It’s gonna be around forever. Why would they ever stop selling it ? And it’s just an all-around good perfume but pretty much all of the ones on this list are anyway, so thank you so much for reading. Let me know if you think and there are any other perfumes that you would have put in your top 10 and if you found this review useful, do give it a thumbs up. Bye!
