Maison Margiela Replica Jazz Club
With a 4.6-star rating and over 800 reviews, Maison Margiela’s Replica Jazz Club has earthy, wooden notes reminiscent of an old Brooklyn jazz club.
With hints of rum, pink pepper and tobacco, it’s a sensual option that’s great for date night — even though it’s touted as a male fragrance, Sephora has included it in its women’s section for a reason. As one reviewer writes, “If you are a woman who loves ‘spicier’ and ‘exotic’ scents, you need this in your life!”
Gucci Bloom Eau de Perfume
Gucci Bloom is a classic floral fragrance that you’ll opt for again and again. It features notes of Rangoon creeper, jasmine bud, and tuberose for a scent meant to embody the Gucci woman.
Think of it as a light, soft, timeless option. One reviewer even notes, “Gucci has finally placed class and sophistication in a bottle.”
Philosophy Amazing Grace Eau de Toilette
Philosophy’s Amazing Grace is a classic floral scent that will never go out of style. It features notes of bergamot, muguet blossoms, and musk for a perfume that feels ultra-light.
Diorissimo by Dior is a Floral fragrance for women. Diorissimo was launched in 1956. The nose behind this fragrance is Edmond Roudnitska. Top notes are Green Leaves and Bergamot; middle notes are Lily-of-the-Valley, Lilac, Jasmine, Lily, Ylang-Ylang, Amaryllis, Rosemary and Boronia; base notes are Civet and Sandalwood.
Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Toilette
A unique combination of fruity and floral, Chanel’s Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Toilette has notes of jasmine and citrus to create a light scent that works just as well during a flirty date night at home as it does during a busy day running errands.
“I spent so long trying to find the perfect smell for me. Everything was too sweet, too strong, or too terrible,” says one reviewer. “This perfume is gentle, soft, yet feminine and amazing!”
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum
A timeless classic, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum is a sexy, modern option for the woman who loves to stand out from the crowd.
Featuring hints of orange, patchouli, and Turkish rose, this scent’s selling point isn’t just its refreshing take on floral, but more so how long it lasts. “If your goal is to smell and seem like a young, fashionable Parisian, then this is for you,” writes one reviewer. “It smells amazing and lasts all day. Definitely gives me a confidence boost.”
Omnia by Bvlgari is an amber fragrance for women. Omnia was launched in 2003. The nose behind this fragrance is Alberto Morillas. The top notes are Ginger, Cardamom, Pepper, Saffron, and Mandarin Orange; the middle notes are Masala Chai, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Almond, Cloves, and Lotus; base notes are White Chocolate, Sandalwood, Woody Notes, Tonka Bean, and Guaiac Wood.
Chanel N°5 Eau de Parfum
Chanel N°5 is one of those iconic fragrances that every woman should try at least once, especially since reviewers continue to share stories about purchasing the fragrance after seeing their elders wear it when they were younger. N°5, a one-of-a-kind perfume described by Gabrielle Chanel herself as a bouquet of abstract flowers, rose to prominence due to its floral aldehydic fragrance, which included notes of rose, and jasmine, citrus, and bourbon vanilla. Even better, this will last a lifetime on your vanity.
Versace Bright Crystal
If you’ve ever wondered what Donatella Versace herself sprays on in terms of fragrances, Versace’s Bright Crystal will put that question to rest.
With unique, fruity ingredients like yuzu and pomegranate mixed with florals such as peony, magnolia and lotus flower, this scent sounds like it would be fun and flirty — but this is Versace, after all, and nothing is ever ordinary. Instead, this fragrance adds on musk and amber to give depth while still letting the refreshing scent shine through. One reviewer writes, “This perfume is perfect if you don’t want to knock others down with your scent. It has such a light, pretty smell that is perfect for the office.”
Givenchy Dahlia Divin

Top notes are Mirabelle, Citruses and Pink Pepper; middle notes are Jasmine Sambac, Peach, Orange Blossom, Rose, Black Currant, Lily-of-the-Valley and Apple; base notes are Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Vanilla, White Musk and Cedar.
