Eau de Toilette

For decades, perfume has been one of the most important rituals in every woman and girl's routine each day. It's almost as important as what you wear and how you do your hair. There have been thousands of perfume brands released over these decades, but to list them all would just be annoying, so here are the top 5 fragrances of last decade.

No.5: Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel

Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel is a feminine fragrance mostly recommended as a day time wear perfume. This perfume was launched in 2001 and possesses a blend of a modern jasmine scent, bergamot, orange and hints of warm musk. This fragrance by Chanel makes women feel exciting, fresh and very feminine.

No. 4: Black Cashmere by Donna Karan

Black Cashmere by Donna Karan is a very feminine fragrance created by the perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux and was launched in 2002. This scent is an exquisite infusion of saffron, patchouli oil and African wengue wood. This fragrance is an amazing perfume to use especially when you go for a night out, but it can also be worn during the day as well.

No. 3: Blonde by Versace

Blonde by Versace is classified as a luxurious, flowery fragrance which is recommended for a romance wear. This perfume is a blend of jasmine and violet notes accented with geranium, rose and ylang-ylang. This fragrance was created in 1995 in honour of Gianni Versace's sister Donatella Versace. This gorgeous fragrance is a very feminine scent with an incredibly intensive and seductive floral composition.

No. 2: Miss Dior  by Christian Dior

The woman who wears this perfume projects the most exquisite elegance paired with confidence and resolve of character which is a truly alluring combination. This amazing fragrance contains notes of gardenia, galbanum, bergamot, jasmine, narcissus, rose, patchouli, oak moss, labdanum and sandalwood.

No. 1: Romance by Ralph Lauren

Romance by Ralph Lauren is a women's fragrance that evokes the timeless essence of falling in love. This perfume was launched in the year 1998 and can be classified as a refined, flowery fragrance for women and girls who believe in love and romance. This exquisite fragrance is a sensual essence of velvety woods, exhilarating floral and seductive musk and is recommended for evening wear.

As amazing as these fragrances are, I have to add my personal favourite to this list, because it is truly a magnificent fragrance that you all really should try if you haven't already.

Parisienne by Yves Saint Laurent

This perfume embodies the essence of a woman who is incredibly free. She is not from Paris but Paris adopts her, because she knows how to love and how to live. Parisienne is the fragrance of ultra femininity, ultra sensuality. A grand floral with a woody structure, luminous even in its mystery.

These fragrances are undeniably the best of the best, as they embody the spirit and essence of freedom, love, happiness and everything beautiful and compress it into a bottle. But of course, not every perfume is perfect for everyone, so shop around, do some research and find the fragrances that really show the world who you are, as well as compliment your style.
