Okay, let’s talk about the best women’s perfumes because I don’t know about you guys, but I feel very sexy when I find the right smell. Fragrances reallllly do it for me. It always has.
I have always liked connecting a smell to a season, or a memory. Which I’m sure is the case for a lot of people. It’s nostalgic and gives you all the feels.
When it’s fall time, there’s nothing I love more than busting out the fall-time candles. Our home is filled with the scents of Fir trees, pumpkin chai, cinnamon, and sandalwood. Once fall is over, we pack these candles up, and put them away in storage for next year.
Anyway, scents are really triggering for me, which is why I love certain perfumes. During the holidays, for some reason, I love fragrances even more. And it seems, so do you guys! I did a little poll on Instagram, and about 98% of you wanted a blog post on some of the scents I’ve been loving.
So, here we are. I’m sharing four sexy women’s perfumes and one men’s cologne that I absolutely love. You can wear these all year round, and they make such beautiful gifts!
I know fragrances can be so personal, and a lot of people don’t like giving them as gifts, however, if you know the person’s scent more-or-less, I don’t see the harm in that. But regardless if you’re gifting it for Christmas, or purchasing for yourself, let’s get into these gorgeous scents!
SEXY WOMEN’S PERFUMES:
Scents: Fruit florals, Rose, Woody Vanilla.
About the Bottle: With its striking red lacquer bottle, this Giorgio Armani’s women’s perfume is an iconic symbol of passion and love.
My thoughts: If you like sweet, this is your perfume! It’s light, fresh, and fruity. You can almost taste the sweetness in the perfume as you smell it. You can definitely smell hints of pear immediately, and it sort of ends with vanilla.
Scents: Lavender Essence, Orange Blossom, Musk Accord.
About the Bottle: The bottle is a couture statement featuring a black asymmetric cap like a sexy couture dress. Gold chains around the neck are reminiscent of the iconic YSL it-bags, and the design is completed with the timeless Yves Saint Laurent logo.
My thoughts: If you like more of a musky scent, this one’s for you. It’s not overly feminine, which I really like. It’s very sexy, and definitely not sweet. There are hints of floral, but nothing fruity or feminine.
Scents: Warm and Sweet Gourmands, Iris, Vanilla, Praline.
About the Bottle: A true testament to Lancôme’s heritage, the bottle is inspired by the 1949 fragrance “The Crystal Smile” created Lancome artistic director George Delhomme. This bottle captures Lancôme founder Armand Petitjean’s vision of femininity, represented in the shape of a smile.
My thoughts: Another sweet and very feminine scent. You can smell vanilla right away! Fruity and sexy, and the French meaning is “Life is Beautiful” – which I love!
Scents: Classic floral, Orange Blossom, Tuberose, Vanilla.
About the Bottle: Designed to be taken with you wherever you go, the My Way bottle is a luxurious talisman encapsulating all the encounters that matter. The blue and gold cap represents the Earth, which connects us to nature and each other. The cap is englobed by a golden ring, symbolizing a unique path illuminated by every encounter along the way.
My thoughts: This one is MY FAVOURITE out of all. I love everything about this scent, it’s sexy, but not overly feminine. It’s citrusy, woody, with hints of jasmine. Not very floraly or sweet. It’s more on the citrusy side with the Egyptian Orange Blossom. I walked in the house the other day wearing this, and Andrew immediately said “Mmm, what are you wearing?” Totally love this one!
Scents: Lime, Ginger, Patchouli, Woody.
About the bottle: Inspired by technical mechanics, its stylish shape is crowned with a glinting chrome cylinder; its iconic metal band is decorated with new and gleaming silver bullets. The bottle gives a glimpse of a sparkling blue liquid: a real wave of energizing freshness.
My thoughts: OH MY GOD. Guys, this cologne is everything. Love this for a man. It’s so chic and sexy. Like, YUM. It’s citrusy, spicy, fresh, and everything you want a man to smell like. Trust me! Andrew LOVES it.
Okay, so if you’re looking for a good scent for yourself, or a Christmas gift for a mom, sister, best friend, husband, boyfriend, these are my picks!
Like I said earlier, scents can be very personal. To each their own. I love a citrusy smell, but it doesn’t mean you will love it too. This is just my opinion. 🙂
