Choosing the right perfume for the woman you love

This Valentine’s Day, surprise your loved one with a bottle of perfume. She’ll be touched you took the time to select a fragrance that’s just her style and makes you think of her. Perfumes for women, just like fragrances for men, are broken down into several fragrance families that can suit certain personalities better than others. The following guide will help you choose the perfume that‘s just right for her.

How to choose perfume for a woman

First, find out what perfumes she already has and jot down the names – this will help you determine the kind of fragrances she likes and avoid getting one she already has. If you’re not familiar with perfume for women and don’t feel comfortable choosing one on your own, ask the advice of a cosmetician. Before smelling different fragrances, describe your loved one’s personality, her tastes, activities and style. Don’t forget to mention any brands she may like.

The woman with a sweet tooth

Sweetish or “gourmand” fragrances will surely please her. Sur Mesure by Jean Airoldi, for example, blends notes of chocolate, coconut, vanilla and caramel. Other sweet perfumes include: Angel by Thierry Mugler, Lolita Lempicka or Viva La Juicy Noir by Juicy Couture.

Viva la Juicy Noir embodies the woman who is dangerous in a good way. She likes her eyes smoky and her lips rouge. Unapologetic, she takes risks and gets rewarded. A rich interpretation of the signature Viva la Juicy scent, Viva la Juicy Noir highlights the succulent ripe berry notes and gourmand accents, while adding a juicy touch of honeysuckle and a sultry hint of sandalwood.

The classic woman

Floral scents are in order. Chanel no 5 is a must-have – every woman should wear it at least once in her life. Pur Diamant by Caroline Néron presents floral oriental notes of bergamot, prune and vanilla on a woody base. Other floral perfumes: Neiges by Lise Watier and Mahée by Mahée Paiement.

A chypre perfume with a sophisticated lingering scent is the way to go. Sì by Giorgio Armani opens with heart notes of blackcurrant nectar that melt into a base of blond wood and vanilla.
