Versace Bright Crystal

An All-time Fav

Introduced back in 2006, Versace Bright Crystal eau de toilette is a designer composition from a reputed brand belonging to the elite market that has quickly become a one-time love for millions of ladies worldwide and still remains extremely popular today.

Once you sniff it in, you’ll get addicted to the scent for good. In some magic way, it will immediately evoke your best memories of dreamy summer holidays somewhere on the seashore and call for your sweetest emotions of sheer joy, and solid inner harmony. The secret behind such addictive appeal is a unique fragrance bouquet inspired by favorite floral scents of Donatella Versace. At contacting your skin, the perfume opens up with a burst of chilling and refreshing yuzu and pomegranate mixing into sweety notes of peony, magnolia, and lotus flower blossom in the middle, and ending up with warming musk and amber. Sensual and gentle, the smell is really long-lasting and will ooze the floral goodness for up to 8 hours.

The bottle is yet another selling point that expressly symbolizes and reveals the fragrance. A piece of clear glass with a huge crystal on top that reminds a diamond looks ritzy and will dress up your vanity table. And the volume of 3 fl.oz. will suffice for months to come.

All in all, the Versace Bright Crystal is a kind of staple fragrance that will suit the women of all ages and come appropriate for any occasion, time of the day, and season.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue

What a Modern Woman Needs

Men often know better what women need and the Light Blue eau de toilette by Dolce & Gabanna is yet another proof of that. Created by gents, the scent of this perfume is an embodiment of modern femininity.

Before you make the first spray, the bottle already speaks volumes about the scent. A combo of “frozen” matte glass with an exquisite silver lining, a simple blue cap on the top, and a neat shape looks almost weightless and draws the images of clear blue sky, pure water, and white sand you can find on the Meditteranean coast.

Inside the flask is a luscious elixir that will hit your nose with fierce freshness and explicit fruity accents. The top pine scents of cedar, crisp green apple, and vibrant bluebell open up with bamboo softness, jasmine honey, and made up by the redolence of citron wood, the softness of amber, and the luxury of musk. Though light and refreshing, the aroma boasts impressive persistence and will stay with you all day long. Besides, only a couple of sprays is enough to reveal the fragrance to the full and make it linger around you in a balmy veil.

As clean, vibrant, floaty, and lively as it is, the Dolce & Gabanna Light Blue perfume is a well-balanced blend of confidence that expresses femininity. It smells like a classy and elegant modern woman with just a little bit of girlish carelessness.

Clinique Happy

The Smell of Happiness

Intangible and irresistibly craved for by each and every person on earth, happiness has no single meaning. But do you know what it smells like? It is surely something clean, fresh, exhilarating, and light evoking a peaceful and enjoyable feel. And this is the scent of Clinique Happy perfume for women.

Launched more than 20 years ago in 1998, this female perfume still stands strong today and continues conquering new fans. And while the name is undoubtedly enticing, it’s all about the fragrance, of course. The scent is a meticulously compiled bouquet of fruit, flowers, and herbs. The composition bursts open with a splash of freshness and citrus vibrancy lent by red grapefruit, lime, and lemon mixed with apple, plump, and bergamot. Middle notes bring floral delicacy, softness, and mildness of the rose, lily-of-the-valley, freesia, and Hawaiian wedding flower while the base accords of musk and amber put the whole blend together and make it perfectly complete. It’s a smell of sunny summer morning, light seashore breeze, positive emotions, and unrestrained freedom.

It’s worth noting that what you’ll get is an Eau de perfume, which at 8% to 15% oils concentration is lighter than perfume yet more potent than eau de toilette. As such, it will last for longer, with the scent being neither flat nor too overpowering.

To resume, Clinique Happy for women is a kind of classic perfume ideal for spring and summer vibes. It will cheer you up and fill a dull day with a pop of colors.

Lucky You

The Floral Goodness

If you are into express tenderness and seduction of floral scents, the Lucky You Eau de Toilette will surely shine out in your perfume collection and become you "love from the first sniff".

The scent from a mid-market brand boasts a rich aroma palette that strikes a perfect balance between soft florals and honey-sweet fruit and is not inferior to those of more expensive designer perfumes. Immediately after spritzing, the fragrance starts with the light top notes of zesty grapefruit, crisp green leaves, and delicate water hyacinth. Once the spontaneous freshness evaporates, the bouquet will further develop into strong and sensual floral accents of blue poppy, peony, and jasmine in the heart balanced by alluring woody and somewhat spicy hints of sandalwood and musk at the dry-down stage to leave a long-lasting aromatic trace.

Though expressly floral and featuring subtle shades of sweetness, the perfume scent is not overbearing and won’t project for miles. Instead, it will linger around you with soft and clean blossom accords making people turn heads as you go.

Offered in a cost-effective 3.4 fl.oz. volume, the Lucky You perfume is also available in a trial 0.17 fl.oz. flask that will suffice for several uses to help you make up your mind on whether you are ready to wear this aroma on a daily basis or not.

In brief, the Lucky You is a multi-layered female fragrance with a solid floral core appropriate for work, casual activities, and non-formal evening outings.

Katy Perry Meow

A Delicacy for Sweet Gourmets

If you are a sweet tooth and don’t mind smelling like a cupcake, rest assured you will like Meow perfume by Katy Perry. But don’t take this statement too seriously straight away. This eau de toilette in a lovely cat-like bottle is rather charmingly than painfully sweet and there is much more than cotton candy and marshmallow aromas behind it.

The whole composition beautifully opens with distinct notes of pear, jasmine, and lily-of-the-valley, honeysuckle, and gardenia, all composing that express sweetness someone might find boring or overpowering. Yet in the middle, the sugary accords are masterfully set off by citrus freshness of tangerine and orange blossom and further softened by creamy vanilla, woody sandal, and tangy mush in the base. As such, the fragrance is extremely complex and will develop on your skin in a variety of multifold aromas. With a strong playful sparkle and girlish vibes to it, the scent is very feminine and is not deprived of elegant sexiness and exquisite seductive touch.

The only gripe, though, you might have about the well-balanced fragrance palette of Meow perfume is that the scent is rather diffusive. The top and heart notes will be barely there in about 3 or 4 hours. However, the dry-down with a distinct vanilla background will stay all day long. Besides, given the price you pay for a 3.4. fl.oz. bottle, you can’t expect more. And a bigger volume allows easily refreshing the aroma, whenever you need.

To cut a long story short, Meow by Katy Perry is a nice sweety fragrance that will best suit younger women and come in handy for day and night affairs alike.

What Is Perfume 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 dry-down 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.
