We have compiled a list of 8 perfumes that have received rave reviews across a wide demographic of women. They have proven themselves to stand the test of time, leaving other products by the wayside and remaining steadfast as household names in the fragrance industry.
1. Acqua Di Gio
Price Varies by Size – Between $57 and $79
This is a great new(ish) fragrance by Giorgio Armani that has been taking the perfume scene by storm! It has been described as a fragrance for “sophisticated women” and caries hints of mint and other floral scents.
2. Oh! Lola
Price Varies by Size – Between $41 and $51
This fragrance is considered a classic by many and is loved by women who enjoy fruity scents. Despite being launched all the way back in 2011, it is still used by hundreds of thousands of women every day.
3. Guerlain Shalimar
Price Varies by Size – Between $39 and $59
One of the best selling perfumes of all time, this classic is definitely a pretty penny (usually retailing for about $120), but the effects are undeniable. Created in 1925 as homage to a love story between a prince and his wife, this fragrance is less fruity and more “mature” than others.
4. Daisy Dream
Prices Vary by Size – Between $39 and $54
Another Marc Jacobs fan favorite. If your significant other enjoys smelling light and florally, this is the perfect perfume for her! Marc Jacobs has been a staple of quality and high-selling perfumes for ages, and is definitely a safe bet to go with!
5. Hypnotic Poison
Prices Vary by Size – Between $60 and $86
Christian Dior is one of the biggest names in fashion, and that includes perfumes. This particular scent is one of their best sellers and carries hints of vanilla that will last for most of the day. If your significant other likes the smell of vanilla, this will be a solid selection for her!
6. La Vie Est Belle
Prices Vary by Size – Between $80 and $120
This is another more “mature” scent, which has been described as “sexy” and has been heralded one of the best fragrances by both men and women. It definitely is not cheap, but a small spray goes a long way with this one so it will last.
7. Burberry Brit
Prices Vary by Size – Between $50 and $100
Burberry Brit has been around for a very very long time, but we included it on this list because it is one of those perfumes that women continue to love consistently through the years. It is less “in your face” than other perfumes, but it lasts all day and is not overly floral or sweet. It carries a woodsy, spicy, slightly vanilla-y aroma, and although strong, will not make your head hurt. Definitely chic refined perfume and a solid choice.
Prices Vary by Size – Between $50 and $70
We like Marc Jacobs as you probably have figured out by now. This particular scent was ranked as one of the top perfumes of 2015 and carries a warm woodsy floral scent. It has been described as long lasting and “sexy”.
