Using perfume can have a wealth of benefits; it can make you feel powerful, confident and sexy. On the other hand, many women wear perfume to feel free, natural and pure; in short, anything is possible with a spritz of your favorite scent.

But there are so many beautiful fragrances to pick from when choosing the right scent for you. Yet, you don’t need to feel overwhelmed anymore; we have got you covered. Check out our top picks of the 45 best smelling perfumes for women available today.

Top List of the Best Women’s Perfumes

Perfume has been around for thousands of years but typically was sold as a solid block. The first liquid fragrances as we know them today were invented in the 1300’s, in Hungary. Since then, the perfume industry has taken over the world. 

As such, we are treated to a glorious wealth of beautiful perfumes and enticing scents for women. The 45 women’s fragrances on this list are some of the absolute top selling and best smelling women perfumes on offer.

Amethyst is a rich floral-fruity concoction that effortlessly brings together blackcurrant, mulberry, blueberry and strawberry in a seriously sweet top note. After a short time, a floral heart of peony and rose come through, giving you the vibe of a sunny summer afternoon.

As the fragrance dries down, you get a musky, vanilla aroma, which is perfect for romantic outings or evenings spent on a rooftop terrace drinking cocktails on a first date.

A Guide On Choosing The Right Perfume For Women

There are several things to consider when choosing a perfume for women. Primarily, you will want to think of the occasion since some perfumes are much more heady and rich making them better for evening wear. 

Conversely, you might look for a light, fresh fragrance for attending work or school. A daytime picnic might be ideally suited to a floral or fruity perfume. 

The age of the woman is also a factor since younger women may favor more loud notes whereas a more mature lady may like delicate florals and sophisticated, earthy scents. 

Are you looking for a perfume that will see you through the day with just one spritz or do you want something a little more intimate? Different perfumes have varying degrees of strength and this is important to look at, especially if you will be attending an event where you do not want to offend with a bold fragrance.
