Perfumes and body mists are a must-have in every women’s bag. Not just to save you from the unexpected bad icky smell but just to give you that extra boost of confidence. There are all kinds of perfumes- floral perfumes being especially my favorites.

Finding an everyday perfume for expressing your signature scent isn’t a matter to be taken lightly. You’ll want to look for a scent that makes the transition from day to night well, doesn’t require constant touch-ups and doesn’t overpower your colleagues either. Hitting the sweet spot at the intersection of classic yet contemporary, we’ve shortlisted the best perfumes that will tick off all the pre-requisites on your checklist. Let’s get started, shall we?

Calvin Klein IN2U Her is an oriental floral perfume crafted for a generation freed by the thrill of possibility.

This is one of the best-selling perfumes for women. The youthful bottle plays host to a citrusy top note of red currant leaves and grapefruit, before diffusing to the heart of the fragrance which offers sugary orchids. As the day wears on, you’ll find yourself enveloped by the base notes of vanilla souffle and cedar. The summery perfume makes it a must-have on your dresser.

Thought for the modern femme fatale, Carolina Herrera Good Girl Legere perfume brings a lighter twist to its original scent, for day and night.

The Carolina Herrera Good Girl Legere perfume serves as an excellent eau de parfum (EDP) to have. The citrusy top note makes way for the hearty florals (jasmine and ylang-ylang) that occupy the heart of the fragrance, before settling into a sweet Oriental scent at the base. An excellent choice for fashion-forward folks, the scent is housed in a midnight blue glass shoe with a golden heel. The sleek silhouette of the bottle means that you’ll want it standing tall and proud on your dresser long after the fragrance is used up.

The iconic Calvin Klein One perfume is a fresh and cool fruity classic for your daily wear that won’t disappoint.

The iconic brand’s unisex perfume offers a clean, modern scent that takes its cues from botanical and fruity flavors. The elegant, minimalist packaging makes way for a bottle that is just as chic. When you first spray it on the sensitive pulse points of the body, you’ll breathe in the top notes of pineapple, papaya, cardamon and bergamot before getting to the jasmine, violet and rose at the heart of the scent. The base note offers a classic blend of musk and amber that only needs to be topped up every few hours.

Alluring and mesmerizing, Illicit by Jimmy Choo is a sensual fragrance with an underlying sweetness for an innately feminine perfume.

From the iconic lifestyle brand, Jimmy Choo’s Illicit Eau De Parfum is the punchy yet sweet perfume you have been looking for. Illicit is a modern fragrance with a floral heart and a warm base. As you spray on the pulse point, you can instantly breathe in the top notes of ginger and bitter orange leading the way for the floral heart of Turkish rose and sambac jasmine. Honey Amber Accord and Sandalwood sit at the base note of this hypnotic fragrance.

Wrap yourself in the sweet floral notes of Davidoff Cool Water Sea Rose, with delicate notes of Nashi pear, a heart of pink peony complemented with the sensual fragrance of musk.

The Sea Rose edition from Davidoff takes its cues from the strong bond between a woman and the sea. This heart-warming fragrance is offered in a cylindrical pink bottle which will look good standing on your dresser. Inspired by the lively freshness of the ocean, the scent features Japanese Nashi pears and peonies as the hero ingredients.
