I love perfume. I am always discovering scents and
fragrances that I love: old and new, classic and
fun, I wear it all. I really don't think that I
have a favorite(but if I did it would have to be
natural scents(like citrus fruit and ocean notes).
Dependng on my mood, I love floral girly scents,
sexy oriental fragrances, and earthy woods-inspired
perfumes too. No matter your preference or mood,
there is a fragrance you'll love. I'll list the
four types and give four recommendations to your
personality. Read on!
Floral fragrances often include notes of peony,
jasmine, and gardenia. But many fragrances also add
oriental notes(like amber and musk) or fresh notes
(like citrus fruit). Some fragrances are innocent
or sexy but either way floral inspired fragrances
are undeniably feminine.
Classic- Vera Wang Bouquet
New- Vera Wang Look
Edgy- Valentino's Rock 'N Rose
Romantic- Escada Moon Sparkle
Warm and musky, oriental fragrances are bold and
sensual. Oriental perfumes and scents often combine
woodsy and floral notes with spice and vanilla to
give it a rich scent perfect for date nights.
Classic- Guerlain Shalimar
New- L'Occitane Honey & Lemon Eau de Toilette
Exotic- Nanette Lepore Shanghai Butterfly
Romantic- Ralph Lauren Hot
One with nature, fresh fragrances include notes
of fruity, green, or fresh water. These scents
are always light and effervescent, perfect for
those who don't like an overwhelming fragrance.
Classic- DKNY Be Delicious
New- Lily Pulitzer Squeeze
Beachy- Pucci Acqua 330
Romantic- Carol's Daughter Jamaican Punch Eau de Toilette
Woodsy and spicy notes were traditionally only found in men's
fragrances, but today's woman enjoys the boldness that only
a woodsy fragrance can give. In fact, a lot of women's scents
now have woodsy notes such as sandalwood and patchouli.
Classic- Thierry Mugler Angel
New- Calvin Klein Euphoria Spring Temptation
Sophisticated- YSL Elle Yves Saint Laurent
Romantic- Lolita Lempicka
All of these perfumes are available at Sephora and House of Fraser.
