Perfume is now an essential part of what you wear. There are lots of times when you’ve forgotten to wear your perfume while going out, and you’ve had to rush back immediately to wear one. A pleasant fragrance gives you confidence, and it also plays a crucial role in how you attract both the opposite and the same sex. In picking the best perfumes for women, the primary metric that is looked at is juice and not trends, and this is why perfumes at the top of the list aren’t new launches, but rather those that have been in the game for a long time. This year, the famous Chanel Chance which came into being in 2003, tops the list, closely followed by Coco Mademoiselle.
“The classics continue to set the benchmark for best perfumes,” says the president of The Fragrance Foundation, Linda G. Levy. “These timeless scents connect with different ages, whether old or young.” However, she mentions that there are some new entries that are making waves in the market currently. “There are some newbies that are rising up the list. Notable mention goes to Hibiscus Palm by AERIN, Dolce & Gabbana Garden, Omnia Pink Sapphire by Bulgari, and Proenza Schouler’s Arizona.”
