Top 10 Fragrances Every Woman Should Own

The perfume market is flooded with intoxicating scents and even the most avid perfumista cannot possibly collect them all. However, some scents are exceptional. Here are 10 of the top fragrances for women that no collection is complete without.

Vintage Scents

1. L'Interdit - Givenchy

The L’interdit launched in 1957 and embraced femininity in a bold, new way. This courageous fragrance contains notes of white floral bouquets, orange blossom, jasmine, vetiver, and more.

2. Shalimar - Amber

Created in 1925, Shalimar was the first amber scent and it changed the face of perfumery for all time. It opens with bergamot, rosemary and citrus, has a heart of rich floral notes and a complex oriental base.

3. L'Air du Temps - Floral

Nina Ricci introduced L'Air du Temps in 1948 as a celebration of peace after WWII. It is perhaps the most iconic floral fragrance of all time. Top notes include spicy carnation, aldehydes, peach and rosewood. The heart is floral accords spiced with cloves. Base notes include musk, cedar, sandalwood and benzoin.

Classic Perfumes

4. Flowerbomb - Amber Floral

Sweet and sexy Flowerbomb by Viktor&Rolf was launched in 2005. The floral heart is sandwiched between green herbaceous head notes and a musk and vanilla base. It was voted into the Perfume Hall of Fame in 2023.

5. Black Orchid - Spicy Floral

Tom Ford launched Black Orchid in 2006. It opens juicy and bright with key notes of citrus, black currant and bergamot but quickly turns dark and sweet with a heart of floral accords and spices. The base goes even darker with gourmand notes of chocolate combined with sandalwood, vanilla, patchouli and musk.

6. Baccarat Rouge 540 - Woody Amber-Floral

Baccarat Rouge 540 was released in 2015 and quickly became one of the top 10 fragrances for women. The head is saffron and jasmine, the heart is ambergris and amberwood and the base is cedar and fir resin. At only 8 years of age, Baccarat Rouge is on its way to becoming a legend.

7. Daisy by Marc Jacobs - Floral-Woody

Marc Jacobs introduced Daisy in 2006. It earns its spot as one of the top 10 fragrances for women due to its fresh, uplifting and modern take on an exquisitely feminine floral perfume. It opens fresh and tart, transitions to a purely floral heart and then dries down to a powdery soft combination of wood, vanilla and musk.
