This is why we have compiled a list (in no particular order) of what we believe are the best women perfumes in the world, enjoy!

Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent

A relatively new fragrance, Black Opium is Yves Saint Laurent’s rock take on their classic. Glamorous and enigmatic, one’s dresser would be incomplete without this scent. It is a perfume that electrifies you with its heavy use of coffee bean notes, and then shows its sweeter side with its jasmine and orange blossom heart notes. Its seductive nature is revealed in its basenotes of vanilla and patchouli. All together, it makes a floral, edgy fragrance that is nothing if not addictive. It gives an energy to its wearer that is excellent for a day or night out. 2. Shalimar by Guerlain One of the most famous scents of the house of Guerlain, the story behind the name of this best seller is as romantic as the aroma itself. The scent got its name from the Shalimar Gardens; the favorite garden of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan’s beloved wife, Mumtaz. Famous for its balsamic notes, the perfume beautifully captures their eternal love in its fragrances; with its floral heart notes of iris, jasmine and rose, and its sensual base notes of vanilla, opoponax and tonka bean. A fragrance of intimacy and romance, the elegance of Shalimar is the perfect choice for those special nights.

N°5 by Chanel

We would be remiss not to mention this classic fragrance. Released in 1921, the N°5 by Chanel has become synonymous with suave and grace. It is the embodiment of a phenomenon- how all the complexities of a woman combine to create perfection. From the basenotes of sandalwood and vetiver, to the famous use of aldehydes in its top notes, this perfume is regarded by many as the epitome of elegance and femininity. A truly timeless scent, it is a must have for women everywhere. It can be worn at any time of the day.

Euphoria by Calvin Klein

With notes like pomegranate, black orchid, mahogany and black violet, Calvin Klein’s Euphoria has created a reputation of seductiveness and sensuality for itself in the market. It is a tempting fragrance that has a rich and creamy signature. A perfume that is the manifestation of all that is bold, edgy and confident in a woman, it has still not compromised on its femininity with its notes of exotic flora. This perfume can be regarded as an essential in your collection; it’s excellent for long days out, and even better for long nights in.

Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf

This floral fragrance brings spring to life with its notes of sambac jasmine, centifolia rose, cattleya orchid, and ballerina freesia bloom. Aptly named, the Flowerbomb is truly an explosion of flowers that tantalises the senses with each spritz; creating spring all year long. Light, innocent and romantic, this scent will create your own private garden. An excellent choice for sunny days out with friends, or romantic evenings with that special someone.
