With the range of women’s perfume being incredibly huge, We decided to step up and have a look for ourselves to see what was popular and not so popular. After careful consideration, we decided these are our top 5 perfumes for women.
#1. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium
Our experience with Black Opium EDT is an intricate interplay between citric tart fruit, black sweetened espresso coffee and pristine white blooms sitting on a bed of fluffy woody-musky vanilla.
Ingredients – Notes of coffee, present in large quantities, dominate the scent. Additional accords are pink pepper, orange blossom, jasmine, vanilla, patchouli and cedar.
#2. Victoria’s Secret Bombshell
This is an eau de toilette so a lighter perfume suitable for summer. Its very light and fresh with grapefruit being the note that stands out the most. It’s pretty and an easy scent to reach for for gym or work. It works more as a day scent as it doesn’t have terribly great staying power.
Ingredients – Fruity, aromatic and floral fragrance contains notes of purple passion fruit, Shangri-la peony and vanilla orchid
#3. Tory Burch Absolu
Fruity Berry opening. But more sophisticated and matured, not candy-like. Comes off to us as pears. sweet slightly medicinal finish, Long lasting, even in hot weather.
Ingredients – Top notes are black currant, pink pepper and lily-of-the-valley; middle notes are tuberose, jasmine sambac and rose; base notes are vetiver, cedar, sandalwood and vanilla.
#4. Ivanka Trump
Very pleasant scent. Sparkly and sweet, with the amber and patchouli preventing it from being Eau de Mallrat sweet. This will be very nice to wear in hot days to come. It’s not the garden-variety citrusy summer scent. Womanly, not “girly”.
Ingredients – Top notes incorporate luminous Italian bergamot, juicy apple and pink pepper which highlight sensuality. The heart encompasses Jasmine, rose and peach, while the base closes with golden amber, creamy vanilla, patchouli and cedar.
#5. Paco Rabanne Olympea
This is the ultimate sweet but sexy warm weather fragrance! It’s a lot like Alien but lighter and sweeter, and it doesn’t have that grapey note. It’s strong and long lasting too. The salted vanilla note is so unique and sexy, crispy mandarin and ginger keep it interesting while creamy white flowers and woods hang romantically in the background.
Ingredients – Its both salty and floral compositions is characterized as fresh oriental, opening with sparkling green mandarin, aquatic notes of water jasmine and fiery ginger lily, with salted vanilla in the heart. The base notes are sandalwood, cashmere and ambergris.
