The Scent Of A Woman – Top 5 Timeless & Alluring Perfumes

Sharing is Caring! ❤️

Perfume is ephemeral, but it’s also seductive and transformative. Its allure is magical as it leaves a lingering memory of you even after you leave the room. As an obsessed fragrance lover – perfume is much more to me than spritzing as an afterthought.

I plan my fragrances and daily – even on the days when I’m home wearing a tee shirt and sweatpants, perfume is a must. Perfume is indicative of a certain kind of power, and we wear it like a hint of some hidden and alluring suit of armor. 

According to my Pinterest page – Makes Scents to Me – these are the topmost pinned fragrances. Please be sure to follow me on Pinterest too! Based on my years of wearing, researching, and adoring perfumes, I wanted to share with you all my top picks.

While I own dozens of various perfumes, these are the brands I am most likely to choose, especially for a special occasion. Fragrance has a long history with sex and seduction, but that’s not the only reason we are obsessed with it. 

The journalist and olfactory curator Chandler Burr posits that we buy perfume for the same reason we buy clothes. He says, “To look good for other people, and equally, to feel that you look good to yourself. Your clothes can say you’re stylish.

They can, better, say you’re smart… Your scent, chosen with care, says not only that you’re smart, but that you think.” I think wearing and choosing the perfect perfume for yourself is more like a window into who we are and how we see ourselves or, better yet – the illusion of who we would like ourselves to be. 

Fragrance intends to transport us into memories that are lasting and alluring. Isn’t it amazing how with one whiff memories of loved ones come whirling back with vivid imagery?

I think we wear perfume for various reasons – attracting a sexual partner is just a small part. With that said, I hope you get to experience some of the scents I adore. I promise you will come to cherish them as much as I do. 

Perfume Personality

1 – Yves Saint Laurent ‘Parisienne’ Eau de Parfum Spray

Yves Saint Laurent ‘Parisienne’ Eau de Parfum Spray – a fragrance for women by Yves Saint Laurent. The essence of a woman who is incredibly free. She is not from Paris, but Paris adopts her. Because she knows how to love, how to live. Parisienne, the perfume of ultra femininity, ultra sensuality. A grand floral with a woody structure, luminous even in its mystery.

Parisienne is one of my top and favorite scents. I try to save it for special occasions or when I’m having a romantic and special evening with the hubster. He loves it too! 

It is a sensuous bouquet to the woman whose heart belongs to Paris even if your home is elsewhere. A voluptuous floral accord of violet, damask rose, and tart blackberry seems to tell the whole story but then comes the fullness of sandalwood, deepened by musk and brightened by peonies, tying the endnotes to the ones beginning. It’s deliciously sensual! 

2 – Euphoria by Calvin Klein Eau de Parfum Spray

Euphoria by Calvin Klein Eau de Parfum Spray – Free yourself with Euphoria, a provocative fragrance from Calvin Klein. A contrast of exotic fruits and seductive black orchid with a rich and creamy signature, it’s a journey without limits.

It’s one of my most pinned fragrances too – and understandably. If you don’t like strong perfumes, this one is not for sure. It packs a punch, but in a “here I am, and here I go” sort of way. It’s for the woman who begs to be remembered! 

Euphoria is about sexiness, fantasy, and being captivating. Sexy and sensual, euphoria speaks to the woman who has the urge to break free from everyday life – to provocatively be part of an exciting world filled with pleasure, surprise, and temptation. Her fragrance contrasts with exotic fruits and seductive florals for a rich, creamy, seductive signature.

Notes:
Pomegranate, Persimmon, Green Notes, Black Orchid, Lotus Blossom, Champaca Flower, Liquid Amber, Mahogany Wood, Black Violet, Cream Accord.
Style:
Confident. Sexy. Chic.

3 – Hanae Mori presents No. 4 – One Of Our Favorite Perfumes

Hanae Mori presents No. 4 – Hanae Mori presents No. 4 is well received Eau de Collection series of limited-edition fragrances blended in Paris.  Brilliantly pink and floral No. 4 includes a swatch of pink organza inside its sculptural glass cap to recall the haute couture fashions of designer Hanae Mori. 

I own several from the Eau de Collection series, and like the entire Eau de Collection series, No. 4 is made with the health of the planet in mind.  Sustainable energy, including solar, wind, and water (hydroelectric), were used for part of the power needed to create the fragrance in France.

  • The top note of No.4 is Sicilian bergamot, blackcurrant, French marigold, and orange blossom.
  • The middle note is wild strawberry, Tonka bean, tea rose, toffee, white peach.
  • The base note is purple sage, benzoin siam (a fragrant tree resin), patchouli, and Tahitian vanilla.

I will always wear Hanae Mori perfume; they are so unique in bouquet – This fragrance description is a “Pink Floral” and leaves me feeling like I’ll never be forgotten when I walk in a room.

4 – Chloe Eau de Parfum

Chloe Eau de Parfum – Feminine. Elegant. Chic. Chloe captures the spirit of women. Fresh, smooth, comfortable, and totally addictive. A sublime powdery rose.

Chloe Eau de Parfum is created with a mix of natural and couture materials. The bottle is made with genuine silver plating and graced with a finishing touch, a hand-tied ribbon.

This unique example of craftsmanship and sublime rose scent perfectly captures Chloe’s house, effortlessly chic and feminine. I have two perfumes from the Chole line, and I adore them both. Each offering their own mystically charged experience! 

  • Top Notes: Pink Peony, Freesia, Lychee
  • Heart Notes: Magnolia Flower, Lily of the Valley, Rose
  • Dry Down: Cedarwood, Amber, Honey

5 – Tresor Eau de Parfum Spray

Tresor Eau de Parfum Spray – Romantic, sensual, emotional, with the elegance of rose, muguet, and lilac, and the sparkle of apricot blossom. A glorious golden coral, so every drop opens like petals on the skin. Experience Tresor in this enduring yet translucent fragrance form. 

Tresor, the fragrance for treasured moments and it represents flourishing emotions. Vibrantly and eternally in dialogue with women, Tresor is an invitation to embrace absolute love. Tresor is rounded like a bouquet, like an invitation to embrace. It embodies the elegance of the rose, interlaced with peach and apricot blossom that brings the sparkle to this luminous fragrance.

Tresor has been a top-selling perfume for years now and understandably for a good reason. Tresor begins with notes of apricot, peach, pineapple, and bergamot. Mid notes of rose, heliotrope, jasmine, and orris give way to sensual base notes of musk, sandalwood, and vanilla.

Women have been going gaga over Tresor for decades now. I think with Tresor, you either love it or hate it. I, of course, love it – it reminds me of my mother, and that’s a good thing.

  1. Love the top 5 timeless & alluring perfumes. All my favs!
    I used them all too except for the Trésor Eau de Parfum Spray!
    I feel perfume is so important as apart of your overall style!
    Thanks for sharing this cool post.

  2. I wish we had smell-a-vision in the computer so I could get a whiff of all of these. They sound so yummy!

  3. I used to wear Tresor pre-meno, when I could actually tolerate the smell of fragrance. Alas, not much on my list today.

  4. I want to try the Parisienne now and there are a few fragrances that I like to wear and smell to bring back memories too.

  5. I really like how suttle the Yves Saint Laurent ‘Parisienne’ Eau de Parfum Spray is. And it’s so sweet. Definitely the kind of scent you wear while cuddling. But although I really like the smell, it just doesn’t get the attention of other females the way other colognes do.

  6. Oh, that’s unfortunate that fragrance bothers you now. Maybe you can reintroduce some lighter smelling ones to get your body adjusted to them again. I do love Tresor still. Fab perfume!

  7. Hi Marisa, I agree. I do love Parisienne so much. It’s one of my top 5 favorites and has the most unique scent out of all my perfumes. Thanks much for stopping by to comment. I hope to see you again soon!

  8. My wife gifted me Parisienne and it’s been my favorite every since! I would definitely recommend any and every woman to own at least one. (No need to get 2 more like me. I just can’t help it)

  9. Great share..
    Love Euphoria by Calvin Klein, the fragrance is luminous and luscious like fruits notes of which are captured in it.
    Euphoria is mysterious and appealing like dark exotic flowers. It invites you to enjoy in joys of life.

  10. Hi Jillian, I’m so glad you enjoyed the post! I love Euphoria too. It’s always been a staple in my perfume collection. Thanks so much for stopping by and hope to see you again soon!
