The kind of scent you wear says a lot about your personality, so it’s no surprise that women invest a great deal of time and energy into trying to find the best fragrances for them. However, there are some popular perfumes that have proven time and time again to please wearers
1. Chanel No. 5 by Chanel
The famous movie star, Marilyn Monroe, once said that she only wore Chanel No. 5 to bed and the rest was history. Chanel No. 5 has become synonymous with classic perfumes and has remained one of the most popular perfumes to this day.
The note that stands out the most in this fragrance is the aldehydes, a floral combination of jasmine and rose. The ylang-ylang flower also features a starring role in this scent. Many other floral scents mingle together to create this signature fragrance, built on a base of amber and sandalwood. Chanel No. 5 is worn by the sophisticated woman with a classic sense of sexy and good taste.
2. Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker
This silky fragrance is Sarah Jessica Parker’s first and only perfume release, but it is certainly a memorable one. Her mission was to create a universal perfume for all ages and occasions.
Upon first spray, the light scent of citrus wafts into your nose, followed by some equally delicate rosewood notes. White musk and lavender is by far the most powerful components of this fragrance. However, there are also some earthy patchouli and playful apple martini that give this perfume a unique personality.
“Lovely” is a charming scent made for a woman who wishes to be noticed when walking into a room, but doesn’t want to steal the spotlight.
3. Euphoria by Calvin Klein
Euphoria’s popularity comes from its ability to make a bold statement while turning people on. Strong perfumes are usually associated with age, but this perfume is grown up without being too mature.
Its fruity and tropical floral notes lend it an exoticism that cannot be beat. It leads with strong pomegranate and orchid notes, followed up by the earthier mahogany and luxurious orchid notes. The use of amber and musk also lend a strong sensuality to this already alluring perfume.
It is the perfect accessory for evening wear and sexy lingerie. Ultimately, Euphoria is the femme fatale’s fragrance, making it a very popular perfume. The Euphoria wearer is a woman that will beckon you with her eyes and steal your heart with her mysterious smile.
4. Viva la Juicy by Juicy Couture
This long-lasting fragrance from Juicy Couture is one of the most popular perfumes out there because of its eccentricity. It is a puzzling scent, because you can’t really determine whether you want to spray it on your skin or drink it from the bottle.
Fruity orange and berry notes open this scent, followed by the staring component, caramel. Supporting the caramel are some luxurious vanilla and praline notes, making you feel as though you have walked into a candy store.
The youthful element to this fragrance cannot be ignored, making it a population perfume for women in their 20’s. In many ways, putting on Viva la Juicy is like wrapping yourself in a ribbon and handing yourself over as a box of Valentine’s Day chocolates.
5. Fancy by Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson’s Fancy is exactly as its namesake describes. This sweet scent oozes with decadence and luxury, with a seven hour longevity to back it up. Light pear and apricot introduce this scent, before segueing into the stronger caramel and vanilla notes.
The heavy almond in this scent gives this fragrance an extra flair of indulgence. More oriental notes – like jasmine and sandalwood – make Fancy stand out among other gourmand fragrances. The popularity of this scent is easy to understand, considering it evokes the image of a princess lounging about eating bonbons (without gaining any weight, mind you).
6. White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor
Elisabeth Taylor’s White Diamonds is by far one of the most popular and successful celebrity perfumes on the market.
Upon first spray, one can smell the more exotic elements of this perfume, including orange, lily, Egyptian tuberose, and narcissus. It is a complex fragrance with a number of different components, but the most prominent by far is the aldehydes.
The sexiness of this scent comes in the base, which is composed of oak moss, sandalwood, patchouli, and musk. Its sheer quality and elegant arrangement of notes have raised it up to classic status.
7. Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana
Light Blue’s place as a popular perfume comes from its freshness and cleanliness. The fragrance itself is rather simplistic, but sometimes simplicity is truly appealing. Upon first spray, the bellflower, rose, and bamboo notes mingle in your nostrils to create a lovely introduction.
However, the dominating elements in this scent are fresh lemon and a lovely cedar, giving this fragrance a distinctly breezing feel. It evokes the image sparkling ocean waters and quiet waves. This makes it ideal for summer wear. Overall, Light Blue is a beachy, airy scent meant for the woman who wants to look effortlessly gorgeous while lounging on the beach or read a book outside.
**Bonus No. 8**
8. Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift
Wonderstruck is as whimsical as its packaging, which looks like it could be found on a Disney Princess’ vanity. Wonderstruck’s composition is meant to remind you of youthful first meetings and innocent love affairs.
This perfume opens with green tea and apple blossom, but soon after yields to the stronger notes. Raspberry, vanilla, blackberry, and peach take center stage here, creating a fruity body that sits delicately on the skin.
These elements are built on a woody base, giving it some legs to stand on. The honeysuckle and green tea scent has a more noticeable presence the longer you wear it. It is a feminine and undeniably youthful fragrance.
Though these are the most popular fragrances, it certainly doesn’t mean that they won’t be unique to you. Each perfume smells slightly different on the skin of each individual, so if you give one of these scents a spin, you’re body composition will give each of these fragrances its own personality.
