Perfume shopping can be a bit overwhelming, there are so many different perfumes on the market and so many brands who sell perfumes. How do you know which one to pick? I’ve gathered the 10 best fragrances for women and I guarantee you’ll love them! Prepare to smell like heaven.
I don’t think I’ve ever told this before but I’ve actually worked as a beauty and perfume adviser at a local store for a little while. It was actually a summer job.
This made me realize even more how many different fragrances are one the market and how many different smells there are. It’s nice to have a variety of fragrances to choose from but it can also be very overwhelming if you’re looking for a new perfume.
I personally love sweet smells that aren’t too fresh and flowery. While you might love fresh smells and don’t like sweet smells. It’s really depending on your personal preferences what could be a good perfume for you. That’s why the first step in finding a good fragrance, is deciding which type of smell you like the most.
A funny background story of how I found my signature scent: my family and close friends sometimes call me ‘Si’ instead of my full name Simone. So I remember how my mom came to me and said ‘look I’ve found a perfume with your name on it!’ and she showed a picture of Giorgio Armini ‘Si’. So we actually joked about how this would be my signature scent because it was obviously made for me lol.
When we went to a store and we smelled Si for the first time, I actually LOVED it!! So what first started as a joke became true. Giorgio Armani’s Si is my signature scent ever since and I still love the smell every time I put it on.
Besides Si, I own a couple more fragrances. Three of them are from KKW Fragrances, see my review on the Kimoji Cherry perfume and KKW Fragrances x Kylie Jenner perfume. I also own Heat from Beyonce, Girlfriend from Justin Bieber, and Thank u, Next from Ariana Grande. I’ve had way more perfumes in the past and I smelled A LOT of them in my time as a beauty and perfume advisor so here are the 10 best fragrances for women.
