However, with the multitude of perfumes for women available, it can be hard to know which to choose. Check out our guide to finding the best perfume for you and shop the best fragrances for women today!

What Perfume Is Right For Me?

Choosing a perfume is a very personal process. Some women choose one signature scent and stick to it for decades, while others will wear a perfume just for a special occasion. Still others may buy various perfumes and use them at different times, depending on their mood, the season, and many other factors. How you choose to use perfume can be as unique as the woman you are!

How To Choose A Perfume

Perfumes are often categorized by scent family or type. Shopping by scent family is a great way to choose a perfume. By narrowing down which scents appeal to you and which you’d rather not smell all day long, you can start to hone in on the type of perfumes that you may enjoy most! While perfume enthusiasts and industry insiders often use something called the fragrance wheel to classify different scent families, we’ll keep it simple with some of the basic types you’re likely to come across in your search.

Perfume Scents

Floral Perfume – One of the most feminine and romantic perfume types, floral fragrances are great for wearing on dates or out and about during the spring or summer. These flirty and sweet-smelling perfumes are built around floral scents such as rose, gardenia, peony, and more. If you are looking for a fragrance with an undeniably feminine touch, look no further than a floral perfume! Our Pick: Marc Jacobs Daisy

Citrus Perfume – Citrus perfumes are fresh and fun. These fragrances are built around bright, clean aromas such as lemon, lime, mandarin, and tangerine. Because of their vivacious and lively scent, citrus perfumes can be a great match for someone with a bubbly personality. They are also great to wear in the summer, since they match the energy of the season very well. Our Pick: Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue

Woodsy Perfume – Woodsy perfume scents, sometimes referred to as woody or chypre fragrances for women, are built around earthy aromas like bergamot, patchouli, and oak moss. Unexpectedly sultry, woodsy and chypre perfumes are as unique as you are! You may especially enjoy woodsy scents if you like the great outdoors. If there’s a specific scent you love, such as the smell of juniper, why not look for a perfume that includes it? Our Pick: Roberto Cavalli Nero Assoluto

Oriental Perfume – Oriental perfumes are the showstoppers of the perfume world. Heady scents like spices, musk, and amber characterize this type of perfume. Said to be the most sultry and seductive type, oriental fragrances are a great choice for date night. If you’re looking to command attention and make a strong statement with your perfume choice, try out an oriental perfume! Our Pick: Opium by Yves Saint Laurent

Fruity Perfume – Fruity perfumes are ideal if you are looking for a refreshing, slightly flirty scent. Particularly well suited to summertime, fruity fragrances are often very playful and sweet-smelling. If you love the scent of a certain fruit such as cherry or watermelon, look for a fruity perfume that incorporates your favorite fruit! Our Pick: Be Delicious by DKNY

Green Perfume – Green perfumes are lighter than woodsy perfumes, but are similar in that they both evoke the smells of the great outdoors. Green perfumes are often milder and focus on lighter scents such as freshly cut grass and leaves. If your workplace allows perfume, green scents are great choice, since they tend not to be overpowering. They are also a great choice if you are searching for a perfume that has a unisex, sporty appeal that works well in casual settings. Our Pick: Versace Versense

While there are plenty more perfume scent families to choose from, these main types should point you in the right direction. Once you decide on a type of perfume or even just narrow it down to a few scent families, you can read other customer's perfume reviews and try out the scents on your own skin to get a feel for which products you like the most. But it doesn't end there! Once you pick the perfect perfume, how do you wear it?

How To Apply Perfume & Make It Last

Most perfume bottles come with a spritzer, so you can simply spray a little product onto your skin. However, to get the most out of your perfume and keep your scent going all day long, experts say it helps to do a little more than that. First of all, always be sure to apply your perfume to areas of your skin that are exposed to the air, not under your clothes where the scent won’t breathe as well. If you’ve always wanted to know where to spray perfume, wonder no longer! Experts say to target the pulse points of your neck, your wrists, and/or your inner elbows. Want to know how to make perfume last longer? Applying a moisturizer before your perfume isn’t a bad idea, since perfume won’t last as long on dry skin. You can also try applying your perfume to damp skin, such as after a shower. Just be sure to give it time to dry! Whether you choose to spritz or prefer to dab on your perfume using your fingers, experts say that you need to be careful not to rub. This is because rubbing causes friction, which heats up your skin and could subtly change the way your perfume smells.
