A signature fragrance can be just as much a part of your personal style as your clothes or hairstyle. Choosing an everyday perfume can be overwhelming. You not only need to choose a scent that you love. You must pick one that you will not grow sick of over time. We have compiled a list of our five favorite timeless fragrances. You will love them as much ten years from now as you do today.
Guerlain’s most successful and enduring fragrance was created by Jacques Guerlain at a time when fascination with the orient was sweeping Europe. Inspired by the love of an Indian Emperor for his magnificent wife, Mumtaz-Mahal—for whom the Taj Mahal was built—Shalimar is named after “The Gardens of Shalimar,” where their love grew.
Notes: Bergamot, Iris, Vanilla, Amber
The classic love story of Romance takes a daring, sensual turn with this mysterious and seductive new facet of the fragrance. The passionate embrace of pink peony and rich black vanilla captivates the senses and speaks of a forbidden love and the sensual side of femininity.
Notes: Peony, Rasberry, Vanilla, Ambrox
Created for an irresistibly charming and flirtatious woman, Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet embodies the couture spirit of Dior in a sparkling and sensual essence. Unfurling a delicate blend of Sicilian orange essence to reveal a tender floral heart, the fragrance unveils notes of pink peony and Damascus rose. As a finishing touch, white musks softly envelop this light and sensual floral bouquet.
Notes: Sicilian Orange Essence, Pink Peony, Damascus Rose, White Musks
For Flowerbomb, Viktor & Rolf dreamed up a theatrical bottle, elegantly faceted like a pink diamond. The hardness of diamond and the strength of the fragrance within to turn any negative into a positive—combined with the femininity of pink—was their inspiration.
Notes: Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Patchouli
Created by Gabrielle Chanel in 1921 to be the ultimate symbol of luxurious simplicity. N°5 has since become more than a fragrance. It is an olfactory heritage: an idea of femininity, a masterpiece of chic, passed on from generation to generation.
Notes: Ylang-Ylang Neroli, May Rose, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Bourbon Vetiver, Vanilla
