Scentsational Smells: Best Women’s Perfumes for Daily Wear

Perfumes can be a tricky thing to get right. Every single scent is a combination of a number of smells: top notes, middle, and base. These notes, as they are called in the perfume industry, are the fragrances of different flowers, grasses, woods, and natural scents that combine to form the end result of a perfume. Add to this the fact that every human being has different body chemistry, meaning that the same scent will smell different on a number of different people, and you have an equation that can be challenging to solve.

Many women like to stick to one fragrance that will work well for a number of situations: work, date night, and meeting the new boyfriend’s parents. If you like to keep things simple, you’ll want one single women’s perfume that can be worn daily. But how can something as complex as perfume work in so many different scenarios? To choose one that is not too attention-grabbing for work, or too sultry for a day out with the family, you’ll need to understand the complexities of your scent. You need one that’s not too hot, not too cold, but just right: like Goldilocks’ porridge. We have a list of perfumes that are complex enough to satisfy a discerning nose, but simple enough for daily wear: take your pick!

Kenzo World Fantasy Intense

If you like something a little bit quirky but not over the top to get you noticed in the wrong way, this Kenzo scent is the perfect fit for you. From the unique eye packaging, complete with pearl iris, to the scent itself, this Kenzo fragrance is something special.  Plum is the lone top note, which hovers over mid-notes of jasmine and peony. A lone base note of vanilla (it is unusual to have lone top and base notes) brings the smells together into a sweet and straightforward fragrance that can adorn your skin at any time of the day or night.

Carolina Herrera L’eau

While floral is hardly unusual in women’s fragrances, an amber floral is something a little bit deeper and more substantial than the average floral perfume. This is a complex blend, but not so complex that it overwhelms the senses. Top notes of lemon, blood orange, Tunisian neroli, Guatemalan cardamom, and red pepper combine for a light but spicy first encounter. In the middle, we have ginger, tea, mate, lemon, orange blossom, and rose. The double lemon emphasizes the sharpness of the scent. The base of the fragrance consists of Atlas cedar, Haitian vetiver, patchouli, and ginger, and cashmere wood brings the spicy, sharp, and inviting scent together.

Elie Saab Girl of Now Forever

Spunky, young, and carefree: these are some of the words we feel should be associated with this fragrance. Girl of Now Forever will endear you to anyone who comes close enough to get a whiff of your perfume. This is a simple but effective combination of lemon and raspberry top notes, blackcurrant, rose, orange blossom and almond mid-notes, and cashmere, vanilla, musk, and patchouli. The familiar top notes invite you in, the layered and heady mid notes sweep over your senses, and the welcoming base notes keep you coming back for more again and again.

Cacharel Noa

Noa has been with us since the late nineties, and it’s just as popular as ever. Launched as a study of flowers and spices, it’s not an overly complicated fragrance, but each stage of its life is something new and special. Noa floats from notes of peach, peony, and freesia into white musk, jasmine, and ylang-ylang; and finally into rose, coffee, and strong, heady incense. It’s the kind of fragrance that lingers in the air after you leave the room, reminding everyone that you made an impression.

Calvin Klein CK IN2U

Calvin Klein was the voice of expression for an entire generation. The resurgence of brands popular in the nineties and early 2000s means that scents like this are also making a fierce comeback. This is a light, but long-lasting fragrance, with top notes of bergamot, pink grapefruit, and redcurrant. In the middle, you’ll find sugar orchid, white cactus, and amber. The base notes are red cedar and vanilla, wrapping up a woodsy and floral fragrance.
