Find your new signature scent with the best perfumes for women

It’s easy to find the one with our guide to the best perfume on the market right now
With millions of perfumes to choose from it can be a daunting, almost impossible, task to find the best perfume for women – let alone the ‘one’ you’ll use as your signature scent.
You can endlessly spray yourself at perfume counters, but it’s more likely to leave you with a headache rather than your ultimate scent. So how do you discover the scent that almost seems like its been made for you?
‘You should always be looking for the notes that resonate with you, and only you’, says fragrance supremo, and founder of the Fragrance Society, Lorna McKay.
‘For instance, if you enjoy the smell of freshly cut flowers, you should look for notes of white flowers. If you prefer something warm, that almost hugs you, try something with amber.’
So before you even start misting fragrances around the room, take time to reflect on the things you enjoy. What have you smelled in the past and loved? What memories resonate with particular aromas?
Once you’ve got that down, then you can spray – but take your time. Don’t spray several fragrances within close distance to each other. Scents have the ability to travel and so will mix together, resulting in an aroma that’s not even close to what you’ll take away when you spray your fragrance on its own. Fragrance combining is a whole different ball game altogether.
Essentially, you have to take your time before heading to a different fragrance counter. But, perfume is all about appreciation. After all, there’s a few surprising facts about perfume and the ingredients contained in them that everyone should know.
- The best purple shampoo for every shade of blonde out there
- The best eye cream to combat dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles
- Here’s everything you need to know about the NHS coronavirus volunteer army and how you can help
Once you think you’ve found the one, spray it on a blotter. If it’s still appealing, spray it on your skin. If it’s still appealing (and not just something that will do), you’ve found the one. It might seem like a long process, but it’s worth it. Here’s what your go-to fragrance says about your personality.
And don’t worry about being without your favourite fragrance when you’re off on your travels, these best travel fragrance kits will see you through.
To get you started, we’ve pulled together the best perfume for women on the market right now, along with everything you need to know about them.
Consider the hard work done for you.

Malin + Goetz Stem EDP, £75, Space NK
This is the anti-floral scent. Not because it isn’t inspired by flowers, but because the fragrance comes from the stem, soil and earth that create the fragrance. This is a fresh, spring day in a bottle. Divine.
Top notes: Mandarin leaves, wild freesia greens and hyacinth
Middle notes: Muguet flower stalk, rose centifolia stems and jasmine bud
Base notes: White cedar, vetiver, ambrox and muskBUY IT NOW!

Gucci Bloom Gocce Di Fiori EDT, £88 for 100ml, John Lewis
This is a floral explosion. Rather than your typical top, middle and base notes, this fragrance opens all at once with three punchy, highly-concentrated flowery notes: jasmine bud extract, tuberose and Rangoon Creeper. From the moment you spray, you’re hit with the strength of these three flowers and even though it’s an EDT it lasts really well.BUY IT NOW!

Hermès Un Jardin Sur La Lagune EDT, from £43, John Lewis
Inspired by a lost garden in the middle of the water city, Venice, this fragrance encompasses everything the perfumer smelt as she stepped through the gate into the garden. So much of what makes this fragrance beautiful is its story, but the scent itself is just as enthralling. It’s white floral, meets damp woodiness.
Top notes: Madonna lily
Middle note: Pittosporum
Base note: MagnoliaBUY IT NOW!

Glossier You, £45 for 50ml, glossier.com
Everyone’s favourite Instabrand Glossier made much noise when it announced a fragrance was coming. We waited with anticipation and when we finally got our hands on this, we fell-in-love. On me, the juice smells soapy clean and warm thanks to the ambrette, and on a colleague it was the perfect blend of musky and powdery with sparkling pink pepper.
Whilst it may be hard to pin down exactly how this smells, there’s no doubt that the intoxicating quality will leave you smelling great and everyone asking what you’re wearing.
Top notes: Pink Pepper, Iris Root
Base notes: Musk, Ambrox and AmbretteBUY IT NOW!

Louis Vuitton Le Jour Se Léve, £185 for 100ml
Admittedly fruity fragrances have somewhat of a bad rep, but Louis Vuitton has come up trumps with, in our humble opinion, the most sophisticated way to wear fruit in a scent. It’s a real triumph; from the first spritz where zesty orange peel comes to life, followed by the-right-side-of-creamy magnolia and that satisfying lift that you can expect from Iso E Super.
Le Jour Se Léve not only smells expensive but it looks and feels it too. This is, quite possibly, the best orange perfume ever.
Top notes: Mandarin, Blackcurrant, Bergamot, Grapefruit
Middle notes: Magnolia, Jasmine Sambac
Base notes: Iso E Super, Vanilla, White MuskBUY IT NOW!

Tom Ford Private Blend Fucking Fabulous EDP, £210 for 50ml, John Lewis

Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Acqua EDT, from £82, Lookfantatstic
