Best Ladies Perfumes 2016: Top Smelling Women’s Fragrances


It’s a new year and as such it’s time to update the list of some of the top smelling scents for ladies in 2016. For this list, I have selected perfumes of all different price points, styles, and scent categories. Some will be sexier and more geared towards romantic wear, while others are quite casual and can be worn in most any situation. Also, you can find fruitier scents or if you like a spicy fragrance, there should be plenty to begin your search for the perfect match. This is by no means a complete picture of all the great women’s scents that are on the market, but should serve as inspiration for further research. I have also linked some entries with related posts, where you will find an even greater selection of perfumes from that designer.


Paris By Yves Saint Laurent For Women. Eau De Toilette Spray 4.2 Oz.

Dolce & Gabbana The One By Dolce & Gabbana For Women. Eau De Parfum Spray 2.5 Oz /75 Ml.

L’Air Du Temps By Nina Ricci For Women. Eau De Toilette Spray 3.4 Oz.
An absolutely  classic fragrance and still a consistent best seller. A good choice if you like subtle perfumes that are clean and have a hint of spice to them. Top Nina Ricci Scents



Spring Flower by Creed– A floral scent but it does have fruity notes involved so it isn’t a straight floral. This is probably the best women’s fragrance from Creed and is both sexy and elegant.



Vival La Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum Spray, 0.5 Ounce
A great fruity/floral perfume from Juicy Couture. This is a fairly inexpensive scent that still retains its unique qualities. Top Juicy Couture Scents

Guilty by Gucci for Women, Eau de Toilette Spray, 2.5 Ounce
This scent from the Italian design house is sexy yet not overpowering and it’s use of pink pepper notes gives it a seductive spice. Also, has notes of peach and lilac which softens the scent and gives off a terrifically feminine vibe. Best Gucci Perfumes
