Oriental Perfumes

Good read by Catherin Helbig, Beauty Expert in About.com Style:

Here, we list the best oriental perfumes on the fragrance market today.

Think of oriental perfumes as the fragrance equivalent of cleavage and a killer pair of stilettos. Exotic and distinctly feminine, these sensual blends feature an earthy, animalistic base scent such as musk or ambergris, often combined with warm top notes such as amber or vanilla. When combined with florals, these scents are called “florientals”.

Poison Perfume by Christian Dior

Poison Perfume for Women by Christian Dior

Inside a vicious-looking bottle that resembles a poisoned fruit straight out of a fairy tale, comes Dior’s storied elixir of seduction. A fragrance legend since it launched in the mid-1980s, this astoundingly sexy scent features a unique blend of spicy, fruity and woody notes. The effect is a bold, frankly sexual perfume that makes a big entrance, tosses back a few martinis, and leaves with phone numbers in her pocket.

Opium Perfume by Yves Saint Laurent

Opium has enslaved many a woman with its hypnotic charms. Its alluring oriental cocktail of fragrance notes includes peppery plum, carnation, jasmine, patchouli, cedar, vetiver, incense, musk and myrrh. Exotic and seductive, this complex and expensive-smelling scent is ideally suited for night time and romance.

Black Pearls Perfume by Elizabeth Taylor

Just like its namesake, this perfume is mature and boasts amazing longevity – dab on a drop at daybreak and expect the scent to linger into the late afternoon and evening. It opens with a dramatic bouquet of flowers and spices, deepening with wear into a smooth, rich amber-and-sandalwood accord. Cozy and warmly feminine, as opposed to blatantly sexy, it’s a great pick for a mellow evening curled on the couch with your special someone.

Organza Perfume by Givenchy

Organza is a fresh and spicy fragrance that is a textbook example of a perfectly-blended floriental. A heart of white florals is complemented by mossy woods undertones and a nutmeg, cedarwood and vanilla base. The overall effect is luxurious and very sensual. Wear this one when you want to beguile and seduce, whether it’s a third date or just a rare night out without the kids.
