Women’s Perfumes worth trying

Hey Hey Hey!

After the previous post titled ‘Men’s Perfumes Worth Trying’, a lot of people wrote back to me saying that they liked the post, and that they wanted something similar among women’s perfumes.

So without further ado, here we go:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  1. Ralph Lauren – Polo Blue for Womenpolo-blue-women

    Jasmine flowers meet honey and maybe something a little musky? That’s RL’s Polo Blue for Women for you. A perfume that makes you remember soft, warm, happy memories, it was rather sad that the company decided to withdraw the scent. You can, however, still get similar scents if you search online!
  2. Versace – Bright Crystal

    Sometimes, you just take a whiff of a scent and no matter where you are, you get transported into another world altogether. For me, one such perfume is Versace’s Bright Crystal. It reminds me of a very powerful, strong woman’s approach, rather than that of a delicate darling. A must try, especially on days when you feel like the go-getter you are! 🙂
  3. Michael Kors – Rose Radiant Gold & Sexy Amber

    Have I ever told you of my slight (and by that I mean Complete!!) obsession for all things Michael Kors, it just proves that my attempts at getting over the awesomeness of the brand, have been commendable. But now that I am telling you about it, these scents Definitely deserve to be checked out, the very next time when you have the chance!

    If I were to describe the scent to you, I’d call the Rose Radiant Gold a borderline delicate scent – something that you’d wear to the wedding of the classmate who was probably mean to you all through high-school. That is to say, the scent is delicate where it needs to be – but it certainly has its Powerful undertones that says “no nonsense accepted here” 😀
    MK Sexy Amber.jpg
    As for Sexy Amber, I am yet to smell a perfume that has the perfect balance of musk and amber – but OH GODS! This one comes Very very close to what I imagine to be the perfect blend of sweetness and woody-elements. If I didn’t love trying perfumes so much and needed to settle down with 3 perfumes only, this would Definitely be one of them.

  4. United Colours of Benetton – Paradisouob-paradiso

    Another classic scent that makes you go all starry eyed, I was genuinely heart-broken when UOB decided to withdraw this perfume. This was the Ultimate blend of flowery, fruity, fresh and woody components, and by far, the highest longevity that I’ve gotten to experience with ANY perfume.

    Unfortunately for me, I have never been able to find a similar aroma yet – but if you do know, pleaaaase let me know too!!

  5. Calvin Klein – Eternity for Women ck-eternity
    Aaah… the ever wonderful range of Calvin Klein Scents! While I do love almost all their perfumes, I am and will forever be a little biased towards their original ‘Eternity’ – for both, men and women.

    This is the kind of perfume you’d want to associate with your caregiver. By that, I don’t necessarily mean your Mama or your Nanny… what I do intend to mean is that this is a very soothing, very comforting scent that would probably even toddlers associate with safety and care. So if you’re feeling like your loving, caring self – a little more so on some days – then you NEED a bottle of Eternity for women in your perfume collection.

  6. Davidoff Coolwater – Sea Rose
    dc-sea-rose
    True to its name, the first time you smell this perfume, it feels like these two uncanny elements – the sea and the rose – have always had an association. Gently balanced between the freshness of the sea and the subtle power of the rose, this perfume is best suited for days out with your girl friends or a loved one. But on the other hand, this is not an evening perfume at all – unless you’ve run out of all your other perfumes, of course! 😀
  7. Giorgio Armani – Si
    ga-si
    This is the perfume that has earned me the most number of compliments from people across the bench! People of all ages have smelled my perfume when they lean in for a hug or sit close to me, taken a deep breath and gone “woooow!”

    When I first smelled this perfume, I remember not liking it.. but a few minutes after I left the store, I needed to correct my hair and when my hand swept past my face, I remember thinking “Oh My Goodness! I smell like candy – without smelling like something to eat!” What followed of course, was me running back to the store and buying one of these and voila! I’ve been showered in compliments ever since.

    The Armani – Si, is your goody-two-shoes meets girl-boss. Soft and gentle, yet knows what she wants. Pretty much, I’d say the perfume is one of the best I’ve tried among women’s perfumes, ever.

Men’s Perfumes worth trying

Hey Hey Hey!

How’s it going? 🙂
I hope you’ve been well while I’ve been up and about looking for some perfumes to be suggesting to you 😀 so without further ado, here they are:

(By the way, these are not ranked ok? Just a list I’ve compiled)

Ralph Lauren – Polo Blue for men

Let us please take a moment to appreciate all the goodness that RL has brought into this world….. Be it in clothes, accessories, perfumes, anything! So, it comes as no surprise that Polo Bluea scent by them is among the best perfumes I’ve ever gotten to try.

If you haven’t tried it yet, please do. It is that typical ‘Sunday-Brunch’ sort of cool and casual fragrance which has a sophisticated edge to it. Would you want to wear it to a usual day at work? Oh yes you would!

It is an eau de toilette and despite that, I’ve personally tried it and seen that it lasts for more than 8 hours. Any downsides, you ask? Well, for some people, it could pass off as a little too mild. Other than that, BIG thumbs up. 🙂

Calvin Klein –  Eternity for men

Now, I’m hoping you know about this one, because if you don’t, I want you to stop reading this blog Right Now, and go find yourself a bottle and try it out. I swear.

But jokes apart, after CK launched this perfume, it was SUCH a massive success that many variations to the basic one have been launched since. Don’t get me wrong, but I honestly think the original one has been the nicest yet. Eternity men

As for a description, Eternity is that perfume that you spray a little bit of in the morning and come home after a long day to realise ‘Oh! The scent is still on my clothes.’ And by that, I mean that it’s a through-the-day kind of scent and if you aren’t sweating too much or involved in some crazy activity that is bound to scrub off the perfume, Eternity is a good choice.

However, I must admit that while a Polo Blue can take some amount of outdoors, Eternity is not exactly what you’d want when you’re in the sun. Not that there’s anything wrong with it but just that it’s a little too subtle and sauve for action of that sort. Big meeting coming up with an important client? Eternity – yes. Daughter’s Sports Day where you’re going to be in the bleachers cheering for her? Eternity – No.

That is to say – overall, for a sophisticated, classy, subtly beautiful scent – Thumbs up.

Hugo Boss – The Scent

Okay. Okay. I’ll be honest. I only went to try out this perfume because Theo James was the model. But it took me quite by surprise and the people at the store were very happy when I landed up picking up a big bottle for my dad. Hugo Boss - scent 2

I’ve never quite been someone who liked HB’s scents but my! my! The Scent, changed that perception of mine. Unlike most of its predecessors, The Scent isn’t ‘in-your-face’. If you know what I mean. Sure, it is sort of strong, but not garish.

If I had to describe the perfume, it is cinnamon-y, mixed with a little bit of musk. It reminded me of very earthy, forest-y smells. In all, it is like a mixture of a lot of things you know, but can’t quite pin-point.

Coming to how long it lasts, this one is a slight let down in that category alone. Indoors, it lasts for about 5-6 hours and outdoors, not more than 4. But this is the perfect scent to be caught wearing for sober yet happy occasions like a best friend’s wedding or even maybe the launch of a new product by your company. In all, thumbs up.

Drakkar Noir

I guess this is one THE go to party perfume and has been, for quite a while. Dark, strong yet not suffocating, the Drakkar Noir is one good investment, even if you aren’t someone who is out partying too often. Drakkar Noir

Set aside the hamartia that you can not wear this during the day (I mean, unless you’re one of those rebels who will, just because!), the perfume by itself has a tendency to remind you of the night. The closest I can think of in terms of sound, for this scent is – the chirping of crickets. When you hear it, the general tendency is to associate it with a silent night with a light breeze bustling through the leaves….. right? (I could be the weirdo here, but yeah) This perfume is the smell version of this analogy.

However, one Crazy good thing about this perfume is that it has an amazing longevity – in terms of the number of years it lasts for (not the scent itself, but the bottle). I know someone who has had a bottle of this for at least 5 years already and the liquid is just as it was when he bought it.

As for one small boo-hoo point? The scent stays but starts waning after a while…. So if you’re at a New Year’s countdown, your clothes are most likely to stop smelling of the perfume by 3 am or so; while the scent clings to your body well into the brunch the next morning.
