Sweet and romantic, these scents are the "good girls" of the fragrance aisle. Floral perfumes are sometimes single note, but generally combine the scents of various flowers to create a classic feminine appeal.
In 1921, Coco Chanel asked perfumer Ernest Beaux to create something that "smells like woman." The resulting elixir would become the world's most iconic fragrance, beloved by legions of women including Marilyn Monroe, who famously stated she wore nothing else to bed. A blend of luxurious florals and warm base notes, including ylang-ylang, rose, iris, neroli and vanilla, No. 5 is an elegant, womanly scent that transitions well from day to nighttime wear.
Chloe was created by Karl Lagerfeld when he helmed the fashion house of Chloe (now run by Stella McCartney). Like Lagerfeld’s clientele, which included Maria Callas and Jaqueline Kennedy-Onassis, this fragrance is rich, romantic and powerful. Jasmine and honeysuckle are layered over spices and woods, to create a fragrance that is boldly feminine.
Tresor is a deeply romantic fragrance. Lush and unabashedly floral, with pretty top notes of lilac and apricot, this is an intensely feminine perfume that charms more than it seduces. Wear it with confidence on a first date, or to a special dinner with your long-term love.
