Finding your signature scent takes some trial and error, but once you find the one, it feels like a match made in heaven. The best perfume for women isn’t the same for everyone, and depending on your preferences, you may want something a little muskier and more androgynous or something more floral and feminine.
To help narrow things down, we compiled a list of the top 8perfume picks for women that are classic for any season and occasion.
1, LANCOME PARIS LA VIE EST BELLE L’EAU DE PARFUM—For the gourmand
This beloved fragrance features vanilla, tonka bean, patchouli, black currant and praline to give it a gentle sweetness.
2, CHRISTIAN DIOR J’ADORE—For the Romantic
The blend of orchid and blackberry musk make this an alluring everyday fragrance that will leave behind a sensual trail for anyone who follows in your path.
3, JESSICA MCCLINTOCK EAU DE PARFUM—For the budget conscious
With a base of sweet lily of the valley that’s balanced with musky bergamot and black currant, this fragrance is decadent but not overwhelming (and the perfect choice for a lavish date night).
4, YVES SAINT LAURENT OPIUM EAU DE PARFUM—For the trendsetter
Loved by A-list celebrities like Emily Blunt and Giselle Bundchen, this sensual scent has notes of bergamot, mandarin, myrrh, jasmine, amber and opopnax to give it a spicy undertone that lingers throughout the day, so reapplication is never necessary.
5, CHANEL GABRIELLE—For the floral lover
As the spokesmodel for this scent, Margot Robbie encapsulates the essence of this perfume: a feminine floral that’s balanced with rich notes of ylang-ylang, jasmine and orange blossom.
6, CAROLINA HERRERA EAU DE PARFUM—For the bold
Karlie Kloss swears by this bold, but breezy fragrance. Featuring floral notes and grounded with a rich cocoa and almond base, one spritz of this perfume will linger on your clothes for days.
7, FENTY EAU DE PARFUM—For the androgynous
The newest addition to Fenty Beauty is this beautifully androgynous scent that is equal parts sweet and musky. (The buzzy fragrance sold out hours after its release and already has customers signing up for the next restock.)
8, PRADA CANDY FLORALE—For the subtle
This airy fragrance is light and sweet with notes of blossoming florals and sweet honey; it’s delicate and not too cloying, making it an ideal signature scent for those who prefer something more subtle.
