Top Perfumes of All Time

Top 10 Perfumes of All Time

When it comes to fragrances, I am very picky and somewhat conservative. I repurchase the same aromas over and over again, but I could never stick to just one bottle of perfume.

In my opinion, a fragrance is one of the best tools to express your mood and feel your best. Not to mention that it’s a major seduction weapon that helps to spice things up a little bit.

I still remember my first perfume and the circumstances I started using it. It was my 14th Birthday that I celebrated with my family in Minsk. My auntie Natasha brought me a present and said, “You are a woman now and it’s time to find your own scent.”

I carefully opened the package so I can save a shiny silver paper and use it for one of many DIY projects I was working on, and here it was… Iceberg Twice by Iceberg. I inhaled a rich, perhaps too heavy for my age aroma… and I was sold!

Ever since that time, I am using perfume almost every day. Of course, my collection is much bigger now, but I still remember all occasions when I found or received as a gift a new addition to my collection. Today, I’d like to share with you my most favorite fragrances of all time.

Ralph by Ralph Lauren

Ralph by Ralph Lauren

This is a perfume that I am picking when I am wearing something preppy. I know, it’s silly to match the scent to your outfit, but I just can’t help myself as I am thinking of RL brand as of stereotypically preppy company.

Nina by Nina Ricci

Nina by Nina Ricci

This sweet and cool scent that I repurchased so many times that I can’t even count. The brand launches a few additions to this classic fragrance, but I am still faithful to my old favorite.

Nina by Nina Ricci

Escada Turquoise Summer

It’s the lightest fragrance from the list, which makes it so perfect for summer. It adds just a few notes of sweetness and thus qualifies as the best aroma to wear in the Hamptons.

Chanel Chance

This perfume features a gorgeous combination of notes and beats the rest of the list with its long-lasting qualities. I recommend applying just one spritz of this fragrance, as it might be too much aroma for people around you.

Prada Candy

This fragrance is the latest addition to my collection and I can’t get enough of it. Sweet, sexy, unique—these are the terms that come to mind when I am thinking about this fragrance. I am also certain that it’s perfect for any occasion!

Ultraviolet Paco Rabanne

I tried this fragrance back in my teen ages and couldn’t find ever since. When I finally found and ordered a bottle of that fragrance — oh, boy! — it’s still amazing!

Cool Water Davidoff

This sweet and fresh fragrance that I am usually having as a backup option to my favorite Kenzo fragrance. This perfume is not as strong as the one by Kenzo, but I still love wearing it when I bored with my everyday fragrance.

Gucci II

This limited-edition fragrance is difficult to find and hard to forget. It’s one of these unique aromas that you could never forget. Every time I am going to Europe, I am hunting on this particular perfume, as it seems to be more popular outside of the U.S.

J’Adore Dior

This fragrance is a special occasion option as it provides a rich and long-lasting aroma. It’s one of the most seductive perfumes on the market that feels luxurious to wear.

L’Eau Par Kenzo

It’s a perfect everyday fragrance that is gentle enough to wear to work or any daytime occasion. It’s my number one choice in any situation!


That was a tour of my fragrance collection. I hope this nostalgic post reminded you of some wonderful perfume-related memories too! Please feel free to share your favorite perfume options with the Style Sprinter community.

    • What’s the only one you love, Amy Ann? It must be the best since you don’t feel the need to have a few options!

  11. I’ve been sticking to Chloe for the past 3 years, but I do get bored of it sometimes. Lately I’ve been getting into the habit of simply buying the smaller bottles and mixing things up. I also started layering the scents! I totally feel you about not being to handle some smells though.

    • Really? I’ve heard about layering the scents but never tried it myself. It must be exciting! Could you recommend a specific store where I can find pure aromas to mix together? Thank you in advance! I am excited to try it out!

  12. i was never big on trying out different perfumes. worse, i’m so bad at deciding which scent smells better for me when the sales girl offers me different perfumes to try one after another, hahaha. I’ve tried the Gucci one though and loved it. Now I’m using Loewe.

    • Well, everyone is different! I prefer shopping on myself and wearing a perfume on my wrist for a few hours prior to purchasing it. Sometimes it gets me a headache right away so I am trying to test it before buying.

      I’ve never tried Loewe – I’ll definitely give that scent a try!
