When it comes to something as personal as perfume, it is very difficult to answer the question which is the best perfume for women. However, over the years I have tried and tested many of them, and a few firm candidates always remain, and judging from my intensified sense of smell when wondering around, I don’t seem to be the only one favoring these three strong candidates.
Here is my shortlist for the top 3 perfumes for women that won’t go out of fashion.
Number one women perfume this Christmas
Chloe eau de parfum
I clearly remember the first time I was recommended this perfume. I was shopping for my wedding dress and I mentioned that I was yet to find a bridal perfume. The lady immediately stopped putting pins on the dress and started speaking about Chloe Eau De parfum. Her words were something as if: if you want purity and clean smell in a bottle, then look no further. I ended up choosing a different one for my wedding day, but Chloe has become my number one go to, and my signature smell. It’s so beautiful it’s hard to describe, but as the lady said, if what you’re looking for is a pure feminine smell, subtle enough to wear every day, look no further. The top note is peony, heart of rose petals and magnolia, and a base of cedar and ambergris. A perfect combination. Not only does the perfume smells great, the bottle is so delicate and beautiful (no doubt a reflection of the liquid inside), finished by hand with a pretty little ribbon, and the collar is plated in pure silver from the silversmith region of Auvergne in France.
Number two women perfume this Christmas
The one by Dolce and Gabanna
This one does not come cheap, but I can assure you it is worth every penny. Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau de Parfum can easily become the staple in any ladies collection, and it is my go to when I want to stand out. It’s unique aroma is sweet, delicate and beautiful, and you will definitely turn heads as you pass by. The smell lasts for ages, and I love opening the wardrobe and getting hints of it for a week after wearing it. This perfume is defined as modern floriental, combining contemporary fruits aromas with classic white flowers. Top oriental flower notes, heart of feminine madonna lily and base of vanilla and amber make this perfume “the one”.
Number three women perfume this Christmas
Jimmy Choo eau de parfum
Definitely another of my favorites, Jimmy Choo Original Eau de Parfum, and great for a present too! The beautiful bottle will decorate exquisitely any dressing table or bathroom, and will make you want to reach out for it every day. It is slightly sweeter that the previous perfumes I described, but definitely not overwhelming. I like to wear this one mainly in the evening, but that is just a personal preference, since it is a multi talker taking you from the office to dinner. It has top notes of pear and Italian orange, heart notes of tiger orchid and bottom notes of toffee and Indonesian patchouli.
