An important role in the image of an attractive woman is played by the aroma of her perfume. It allows you to create a positive impression among the people around you. However, the choice of women’s perfume should be approached responsibly, since an illiterately selected scent can irrevocably spoil even the most beautiful, stylish and seductive look.
In cosmetic stores, a range of such products is presented for every taste and color, so every fashionista can choose one or more fragrances — for every day, for a social evening, for a party or for going to the theater. Our image of the best female perfumes of the year is called upon to help you understand the existing variety of smells. Here we will not only consider the most popular products among the fair sex, but also give some advice on choosing the right fragrance. I would like to appeal to men on the same topic. If you are going to give your chosen one perfume products, then you must first carefully study her preferences. Otherwise, it may turn out that your present will gather dust on a shelf in the farthest corner.
How to choose the right perfume for women?
It is natural that there are a number of universal fragrances, but still most of the perfume for a woman around the age of 40 is unlikely to be suitable for a young girl. In this regard, it is necessary to take into account age. The widest choice is presented for the age category of 18-28 years. For them, light smells with herbal or refreshing compositions will be suitable, and more saturated aromas will become quite appropriate, which over time will begin to reveal halftones and shades. For everyday use, young girls are best suited for perfumes with citrus, berry or floral notes. In case there is a solemn exit, you can use sweet, powdery smells.
For older girls, fragrances with floral notes will still be relevant, but they should be deeper and more saturated. Perfumes with notes of citrus, fruits, tea, herbs are best used during outdoor activities. For this purpose, oriental perfumes containing various kinds of incense, spices, musk or wood extracts will also be very suitable. At this age, women should take a closer look at the group of chypre odors. They are characterized by a clean and fresh sound, where additional emphasis is placed on bitter herbal or woody notes.
As a rule, mature ladies already have their own developed taste, including in the field of perfumery. If even from a young age you liked perfumes with certain notes, then with age it is not at all necessary to neglect them. It is enough just to surround them with a number of classic aromas. Perfume with an initial smell of citrus or other fruits, refreshing greens will be felt quite well. The plume and the central part of the fragrance should be more sensual and expressive, for example, it is important to use amber, resin, woody or maximally deep floral notes. Such a combination will allow a woman to look much younger, but at the same time it will not seem strange to others.
When we chose products for our ranking of the best women’s perfumes, we mainly paid attention to precisely those points that we highlighted above in detail. However, the value for money, as well as user reviews, were also taken into account. The review includes the most common flavors that will be to the taste of most of our readers.

The world famous brand of perfumes, which produces products for both men and women.

1. Aedes De Venustas Copal Azur
This brand began production of its products not too long ago — about six years ago, but it has practically become popular with the fair sex. The fragrance of the perfume turned out to be very original, just like the rest of the perfumes developed by this company. It is dedicated to golden copal, the silvery smoky notes of which will be revealed each time in a new way, along with the rest of the aromas of this perfume. It uses a special aromatic resin of the highest quality, which is mined in the heart of the Amazonian forests. The smell of perfume turned out to be balanced, pleasant and not too harsh — it does not rush into the nose too much, on the contrary, it breathes harmony and peace.
Despite the rather high combination of pheromones, perfumes set you up more in a romantic, rather than erotic, mood. They do not have sugary sweetness and viscosity. They leave behind a barely noticeable trail, feeling which a man has an instinctive desire to turn around after his owner. The smell begins to gradually unfold with notes of incense and sea salt. The heart includes patchouli and cardamom, combined with the warmth of amber and myrrh. They are comparable to the overflowing waves of the sea at sunset on a pleasant summer day. The fragrance manifests itself in a very original way: it either sparkles, then subsides, then flares up with a bright flame, then descending to a light haze, which is almost impossible to catch.
- Rather, a summer fragrance for lovers of a calm and measured pastime;
- Universal — suitable for both women and men;
- It reveals its bouquet of aromas in a very original way.
- A bit pricey.

The beginning is very light, but it causes anticipation that in the future it will be possible to feel other components.
