Turns a bit sweet and sickly when worn a while.

PROS

The drydown evens out the sweet top and middle notes with musk and blonde woods, making the fragrance sexy and seductive. The scent lasts more than most middle-up perfumes and you'll need one, two spritzes tops to unfold the scent.

CONS

Some find the sprayer pretty shoddy. 

OUR VERDICT

Ariana Grande Ari Eau De Parfum makes an intimate statement, exuding passion and oozing warmth and confidence. The playful, fresh, and addictive scent will fit upscale scenes and laid-back, impromptu weekend plans alike.

The lady apple hints make the scent sweet and tart. The rare Tahitian tiare flower makes the scent unique. The dark chocolate and tuberose notes prevent the scent from becoming too sweet.  

CONS

The fragrance will vary depending on the shipment. 

OUR VERDICT

CONS

The scent only lasts 2-3 hours. 

OUR VERDICT

Even the bottle that holds Lacoste Touch of Pink Eau de Toilette looks elegant, matching toned-down white with vibrant pink to embody the product's effortless charm. Spontaneous, independent women will find the perfume irresistible.

CONS

The aroma is a little overpowering. 

OUR VERDICT

Calvin Klein Eternity Eau de Parfum does not require introductions because the line has been introduced more than 3 decades ago. Keeping the scent exhilarating, vibrant, and robust, this is the perfume that stays with you.

Gucci Guilty

Arrestive and Seductive

Gucci Guilty Eau de Toilette is guilty, guilty of creating a sensual and distinct scent that allows women to express how unique and sexy they are. The warm yet striking oriental floral notes are coming at you with hedonism at heart.

The fragrance starts seizing the attention, opening with flamboyant mandarin hints, imbued with modish transparency and shimmering alongside audacious pink pepper scents. Next come the middle notes, introducing the most alluring heady lilac and geranium concoction, laced with that succulent peach tactility that gives perfumes velvet femininity but not without beguiling provocation hints.

Patchouli has become the Gaccu fragrances' hallmark, conveying strength but being balanced out with amber's voluptuousness, suggesting deep femininity. The effect? Compelling, arrestive and seductive at once.

The people behind the product comment that what they have created here is something hypnotic and we can see where the sentiment is coming from.

Sure, with peach and mandarin hints, the perfume turns somewhat sweet and sickly throughout the day. Still, Gucci Guilty Eau de Toilette is among the most long-lasting, best-smelling, inventive fragrances for experienced and young women alike.

Ariana Grande Ari

Playful Plus Confident Equals Timeless

Ariana Grande Ari Eau De Parfum is playful yet confident, creating a timeless fragrance that young women will love as much as they love the pop icon behind this product. The luscious fragrance begins with sparkling fruits and feminine floralcy. The mouthwatering freshness matches crispy pears with pink grapefruits and juicy raspberries. Then, there's the perfume's heart, blossoming with vanilla orchids, sweet and creamy. The drydown evens things out with blonde woods, musk, and subtle yet addictive marshmallow hints. This is where the confidence comes from but not without bringing back unexpected playful accords throughout the fragrance story, pairing passion with this certain gentleness.

The bottle looks fantastic, featuring diamond cuts throughout its rounded form. The dispenser is not that great though. You might find it difficult to spray the precise perfume amount you want, which is unfortunate because, despite belonging to the middle-up category, the perfume lasts and you'll need no more than 1-2 spritzes to make the entire scent unfold.

To sum this up, Ariana Grande Ari Eau De Parfum is an intimate statement, subtle yet addictive, playful yet confident. The perfume exudes passion and oozes warmth.

Vera Wang Princess

An Unpredictable Attitude

Vera Wang Princess Eau de Toilette is unpredictable yet always welcome. The perfume has an attitude, an attitude that you cannot reject. This attitude comes from the sweet and tart yet captivating top notes that the perfume borrows from gentle lady apples and delicate water lilies greeted by golden apricots and mandarin meringues.

Sweeping into the heart (middle notes), these sweet accords are met with pink guava, ripe and rich, and the rare and coveted Tahitian tiare extracts. The heart is not complete without wild tuberose and dark chocolate hints though to make sure the scent is not turning to sweet. At the base, the perfume combines tempting vanilla chiffons and pink frosting, pairing them with precious amber notes and forbidden woods, wrapping the fragrance in mysterious air.

Young girls will adore the heart-shaped bottle but the versatile fragrance will also suit teenagers and adults. The fragrance will vary depending on the shipment though, so do not get surprised if you order a new bottle and the perfume does not smell exactly like the old one.

In short, Vera Wang Princess Eau de Toilette is all about introducing magic and mystery into your life, with its feminine yet modern and free-spirited scent.

Lacoste Touch of Pink

Authentic, Carefree, Spontaneous

Lacoste Touch of Pink Eau de Toilette has the most elegant bottle, tall and almost statuesque. Pairing vibrant pink and white, the bottle embodies the perfume's effortless charm. The top notes open the scent with sweet and refreshing fruity-floral accords, gentle and inviting. First and foremost, it is the blood orange and jasmine that define the scent, bringing spontaneity and an authentic, carefree attitude with them. You have vanilla making the scent soft yet supple and violet leaves balancing out vanilla's sweetness. To separate the perfume from most sweet, almost too feminine scents, the base notes are adopting sandalwood and cardamom seeds, making the fragrance spicy, nutty, and woody, alluring and tempting.

You can choose between 30-, 50-, and 90-millimetre bottles, knowing that the bottle will last nonetheless since the long pump sprayer always reaches the bottom, allowing you to use every last drop. The cap keeps the bottle tight, preventing leaks. Now, the scent only lasts 2-3 hours, so you'll have to make sure to apply the perfume only before going out.

In closing, Lacoste Touch of Pink Eau de Toilette is the expressive perfume that independent and spontaneous women will find irresistible.

Calvin Klein Eternity

Through Thick and Thin

Calvin Klein Eternity Eau de Parfum has been introduced three decades ago and the line is still successful. Its secret? If we had to wager a guess, probably the well-balanced scent, exhilarating and vibrant. Some even find the scent a little overpowering but that just means that you do not have to be too generous with spritzes.

The perfume is fresh, opening with mandarin and freesia notes, then delivering the most beguiling bouquet, including white lily (also known as lily of the valley), violet, and spicy carnation. Reaching the heart, the scent starts introducing bergamot and white rose, balancing the mild-tempered top notes with strong, robust flavours. The base notes are offering sandalwood, amber, and musk, making the scent sexy, provocative, and seductive, lingering at the drydown stage to make even the last minutes count.

From shipment to shipment, throughout three decades, the scent remains the same so that even women that have been using this perfume for the last 10-20 years cannot tell the difference between separate bottles.

In other words, this eternity perfume for women will stay with you through thick and thin, through good times and bad times, giving you the confidence you need to start off on the right foot, day in, day out.

What Are Perfumes for Women?

The olfactory system, known as the sense of smell, is underrated. We're visual creatures, sure, but smelling good is not a prerogative, it is an obligation, an obligation to society, an obligation to the people around you, an obligation to yourself. The right scent will allow you to project confidence, attract more eyeballs, and express how sexy and composed yet provocative and seductive you are. With these perfumes for women, these tasks are easily achievable.

The scents that these perfumes are adopting could not be any more different yet there's something that unites them - they're all feminine but not too feminine, fresh but also deep, subtle yet not too subtle, luscious and playful but also passionate and ultimately irresistible. Some perfumes are sweet and gentle, whereas others are rich, sensual, and spontaneous. The drydown can be different, the top notes are not the same, and even the heart varies from one bottle to the next but there's alluring and captivating about them all.

We're still visual creatures though, so we would not recommend overlooking these primers and drugstore concealers.
