Light and floral

Lucky You is one of the most popular perfumes out there, and with good reason. It's got a lovely citrus scent that has a bit of floral and just a touch of sandalwood. Together, these combine for a lot of depth without an overwhelming smell. One happy reviewer said the ingredients were "The tears of a God, Britney Spears hair and a drop of leprechaun blood." I'd buy it for that phrase alone.

Come for the bottle stay for the scent

Princess by Vera Wang has one of the cutest bottles I've ever seen for a perfume. It wears a little crown! The little touches of packaging take this scent to the next level, but of course, the heart of it is the smell itself, which is lovely. It's got a strong base of vanilla, with some florals and a touch of amber. If you want a variation on that theme, Vera Wang has some a whole line of princess perfumes, including Flower Princess, Rock Princess, Glam Princess, and Princess Noir, each with its own unique blend.

So many options

This option from Ed Hardy is a great choice for an edgier woman: it has tropical notes, plus rose and amber to give it a bit of an edge. People who like this scent swear by it: "My all-time fave fragrance, it’s sweet, with a slight hint of musk, long-lasting." But the thing that really makes this option stand out is that you can get it as part of three different gift sets, including everything from body lotion to bath fizz to Eau de Parfum. It's perfect for gifting.

Elegant, deep, and beautiful

Dolce and Gabbana is a brand that says quality, and it truly comes through in this scent. This scent doesn't have the bright citrus and florals that many perfumes favor: it relies on vanilla, amber, musk, bergamot, and jasmine. "I love the fragrance and receive so many compliments asking what am what is it. Not strong or flowery very subtle. I highly recommend to all." Give yourself an air of mystery with this scent.

True luxury

This perfume from Lancome may be on the higher price end of our list, but there's a reason: this is a truly luxury perfume. It's a unique scent, with black currant, praline, vanilla, and patchouli, but it's still wonderful for day to day wear. It packs a real punch. One reviewer said: "My sister purchased this for my birthday. OMG, it smells sooooo good. I get so many compliments every time I wear it. Another one of my sisters loved it so much I purchased it for her for Mother's day. One day while wearing this I saw a male friend and he hugged me. He said "you smell great" and then as he turned to walk away he turned back and said, "wow you really smell great". I wore it every day for about two weeks after that." Yeah, it's worth it.

Exotic scents

This Michael Kors scent draws from scents across the globe: spice, blue orris, vetiver, and incense. "This is my signature scent and has been since its release way back when. Everyone will ask what you're wearing. Men will want to know so they can buy it for their wives, women will want to know so they can smell sublime. It's incredibly sexy and one spray will last all day." It's sensual, delicate, and oh so perfect.

Vera Wang FTW

Vera Wang is so good at perfumes that we had to list two of their scents. This eau de parfum has scents of rose, lily, iris, and gardenia: it's definitely a floral scent. That makes it light and sweet. "For me, upon first spritz, I am suddenly transported to the lush garden my sweet Mama always grew and tended in each house we lived in as I grew up. This amazing and well-blended fragrance makes me feel like I'm back living in my favorite house we ever lived in, when I was a teen. It was the last house I lived in with my family before I got married. If you love flowers, flowers, and more flowers, I am confident about recommending this to you."

Get happy

There's a reason this perfume is called Happy, and it's because it's going to make the recipient smile all day long. It has a wonderful mix of fruits and flowers that make up the base of the perfume. It has strong citrus to it but isn't overwhelming. " I tried this and love it. it's not floral, but somehow a warm uplifting smell... vibrant and fun if that makes sense. I swear at times when I put it on, I must look like a commercial because I almost always smile when I open the top.... what can I say?"

Lingering and sexy

This Paloma Picasso scent is all about subtlety. "Paloma Picasso perfume leaves a lovely light and airy scent, not overpowering like some heavier fragrances I've tried over the years. I have kept coming back to Paloma Picasso again and again because I feel totally feminine wearing it. I happily receive compliments regarding how beautifully fragrant it is and there is no occasion I would consider wearing it inappropriate." It's got carnation, citrus, spice, coriander, and wood scents to it that will leave you with a beautiful mix.

Oooh Juicy

Viva La Juicy from Juicy Couture is a youthful scent that has beautiful packaging and can be bought with body lotion to complete the set. It's got some vanilla, a bit of caramel, and a touch of amber plus overtones of fruit. It's fun, playful, and sweet. "I LOVE this perfume. I bought it on a whim, b/c I love the style of Juicy Couture. On my very first day of wearing it, a bus driver complimented me on it and then a complete stranger passing me on the street said, "You smell so good!" The proof is in the pudding, it smells amazing, a little fruity, but not a lot and it's not super strong. Recommend it!"
