Let’s be honest, we all made some rookie mistakes when looking for the right perfume—getting drawn with the pretty bottle, buying without trying, or simply hopping on the trend.
Fragrance is subjective. In choosing women’s perfume, it’s helpful if you have an idea of what specific kind of fragrance you enjoy while taking your sweet time. Do you prefer floral or woodsy scents? Are you interested in citrusy, tobacco, or powdery perfumes? Or do you prefer layering a few fragrances to create your own “signature scent?”
Thankfully there are timeless scents that speak for themselves like the world’s most popular fragrance, Chanel No. 5. But just in case you are wondering which one is best suited for you, keep on reading.
We have found the most popular and most interesting scents in the market. Remember, no settling! This could be your ultimate perfume love story.
Also worth noting, it’s almost Mother’s Day! You can treat your mom, a loved one, or yourself to any of these amazing perfumes.
Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait de Parfum
Created for Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s 250th anniversary, Baccarat Rouge 540 is certainly a fragrance worth celebrating. 540 always seems to capture people’s attention (including Rihanna herself). This woodsy scent is priced at ₱22,950.00.
This inventive fragrance is made all the more special by its inclusion of rangoon creeper, a flowering vine native to tropical Asia. Just this side of vanilla is enough for everyday wear, but sensuous enough for going out. A traditional floral perfume, Gucci’s Bloom is priced at P10,800.
A feminine and addictive eau de parfum for women priced at P9,998. With some floral notes and sandalwood it is almost gourmand and its vanilla scent will have you craving for some luscious cake. Sweet!
Chanel No. 5
Our list wouldn’t be complete of course, without the iconic Chanel No. 5! Known as the most popular perfume, Chanel No. 5 was the world’s first abstract fragrance, incorporating more than 80 ingredients in a complex, multi-layered formulation process that uses aldehydes to heighten the scents and give an airy nature to the floral notes. A classic floral priced at P8,840.
