6 Best Floral Perfumes

Good article from About .com Style:

Sweet and romantic, these floral scents are the “good girls” of the fragrance aisle. Floral perfumes are sometimes single note, but generally combine the scents of various flowers to create a classic feminine appeal.

No. 5 by Chanel for Women

In 1921, Coco Chanel asked perfumer Ernest Beaux to create something that “smells like woman.” The resulting elixir would become the world’s most iconic fragrance, beloved by legions of women including Marilyn Monroe, who famously stated she wore nothing else to bed. A blend of luxurious florals and warm base notes, including ylang-ylang, rose, iris, neroli and vanilla, No. 5 is an elegant, womanly scent that transitions well from day to nighttime wear.

Chloe by Karl Lagerfield for Women

Chloe was created by Karl Lagerfeld when he helmed the fashion house of Chloe (now run by Stella McCartney). Like Lagerfeld’s clientele, which included Maria Callas andJaqueline Kennedy-Onassis, this fragrance is rich, romantic and powerful. Jasmine and honeysuckle are layered over spices and woods, to create a fragrance that is boldly feminine.

Tresor by Lancome for Women

Tresor is a deeply romantic fragrance. Lush and unabashedly floral, with pretty top notes of lilac and apricot, this is an intensely feminine perfume that charms more than it seduces. Wear it with confidence on a first date, or to a special dinner with your long-term love.

Flight of Fancy by Anna Sui

Like the name suggests, this is a whimsical fragrance that doesn’t demand to be taken too seriously. A quirky cocktail of floral and fruity aromas, the perfume appeals with notes of litchi, magnolia, rose and freesia. It’s fresh and fun, right down to its peacock-adorned bottle.

Curve by Liz Claiborne for Women

Another fruity floral, Curve blends soft floral notes of lily and rose with yummy peach, citrus and berry aromas. This is a crisp, clean perfume that’s best-suited to daytime wear.

Acqua Di Gio for Women by Giorgio Armani

This aquatic floral is a fresh take on the category. Acqua Di Gio for Women combines fresh floral scents with marine and fruity notes, over a musky base. Wear this clean, feminine fragrance when you need a mood-booster.
