10 Best Perfumes For Women

Perfumes are a personal thing.  Every woman has her own taste as far as perfumes are concerned. Floral, fruity, musky, citrus – these are the major fragrance divisions and while certain women may like fruity and some others the musky fragrances; there are some perfumes that appeal to women in general.  Here’s a list of the 10 best perfumes that have bowled the women the world over with their amazing fragrances.  All these perfumes are costly, but I have a strong opinion that women should invest in perfumes or rather not wear any perfume at all if she cannot, women should never smell cheap 😛

1.  Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Parfum:


Price:  Rs. 8900


A very feminine fragrance, sophisticated, timeless, classy, elegant.  Can be worn during day time as well as night time.  It has top notes of bergamot and orange; a heart of jasmine and “morning rose petals”; and a base of patchouli, vetiver, vanilla, and white musk. Stays on for 8 hours.

2.  Calvin Klein Euphoria Eau De Parfum:

Price:  Rs. 3000


A fun, enticing scent for women. The beautiful fragrance starts off with pomegranate, persimmon, and a lovely lush green accord. The heart then blends into a sensual lotus blossom, black orchid which then finishes off with amber, violet, cream and woods. A strong, bold, and feminine fragrance.  Lasts for more than 6 hours, suitable for wear any time.

3.  Dior Poison Eau De Toilette:

Price:  Rs. 8500 approximately.


Described as Dior’s ultimate weapon of seduction. Its a rich blend of spicy, fruity and amber notes warmed by honey and musk.  Dior describes this perfume as an amber fruity spicy fragrance, the original fragrance of bold, disturbing seduction.  Lasts for long, exotic floral notes, sensuous fragrance.

4.  Gucci Guilty Eau De Parfum:

Price:  Rs. 6000


A warm yet striking oriental floral with hedonism at its heart. The scent seizes the attention with a flamboyant opening born of the natural rush that is mandarin – imbued with a modish transparency – shimmering alongside an audacious fist of pink pepper.  Stays on for around 5 hours, crisp perfume, citrus and spicy notes.

5.  Nina Ricci L’Air Du Temps Eau De Parfum:

Price:  Rs. 4500 approximately.


A floral, slightly spicy, and slightly musky fragrance.  Considered as a classic perfume.  Clean, fresh, flowery fragrance.  Fantastic staying power.

6.  Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche EDT:

Price:  Rs. 10,500 for 50 ml.


A clean, fresh, summery citrus fragrance, flirty, appropriate for office and day events, lasting power is amazing, lasts for 6 to 7 hours.

7.  Marc Jacobs Eau de Parfum:

Price:  Rs. 6000 approximately.

There are many versions of Marcs Jacobs perfumes available – Daisy, Dots, and other limited edition ones.  All of them smell amazing, and the bottle is such a pretty thing to own.  You can choose any variant and it sure will mesmerize you.

8.  Yves Saint Laurent Belle D’Opium Eau De Parfum:

Price:  Rs. 6500


There are many variants in YSL opium, I have used the YSL Oriental Limited edition one, which I felt was too strong for me, but the a majority of women love the Opium fragrance.  This one is described as a warm, comforting, soothing, strong, suitable for evening fragrance that falls in the oriental woody and spicy category.  It stays on for hours together with the strong notes.

9.  Sarah Jessica Parker’s Lovely Eau De Parfum:

Price:  Rs. 4000 approximately.


A feminine, subtle, sophisticated fragrance, long lasting fragrance.  Notes of lavender, orchids, lasting power is excellent.

10.  Issey Miyake Pleats Please Eau De Toilette:

Price:  Rs. 2500



Winding up with my favourite fragrance.  So many people have sniffed it on me and made the purchase, its so awesome. You should definitely test it at the counter if you like this kind of a fragrance which is effervescent and fresh. Its a luminous, joyful, floral bouquet with addictive base notes combine the sweetness of vanilla layered over vibrant woody notes.  Lasts for up to 10 hours.  Though its an intense perfume, its not dark, heavy, or mysterious, and will not wither down to a pungent scent at the end of the day.
