Most Popular Womens Perfume
Looking for a new signature fragrance but feel a bit overwhelmed when encountering overly coiffed ladies willing to douse you each time you enter a department store?
Today it seems every celebrity has a fragrance attached to his or her name. From Brittney Spears to Beyonce Knowles to Hillary Duff, how do you know which is right for you?
The first step is to ignore the brand name or label. Just because a celebrity is willing to sell his or her name wholesale doesn’t mean that they care if you end you smelling like hot garbage. Instead, choose a scent based on how it smells on your skin and your personal tastes. Remember! When you are looking for a new perfume, try to be open to something different from your usual. You might surprise yourself.
There are several types of scents or themes, which are the basis of perfumes. Some types are:
- Orientals/ambers: Ambers have hints of musk, vanilla, spice, animal scents, woods, and combinations of flowers. Some perfumes that fit this type are: Coco Chanel, Obsession by Calvin Klein or Opium by Yves St. Laurent.
- Florals: Usually one of the most popular choices. One example of a floral would be Beautiful by Estee Lauder.
- Chypre: These scents have a woody, mossy, floral base.
- Citrus: Most fragrances in this category are eau de colognes and use smells like grapefruit, lemon, or tangerine. Calvin Klein’s CK One is an example.
