“This is the first grown-up scent I ever used and have stayed loyal to it all these years. The clean, warm scent is elegant and sexy in equal measure and stays on for a really, really long time. It’s one of the reasons why I love it so much. So much so that I’m yet to find a replacement for it, even after 10 long years. A classic perfume, it really does have the power to make you feel alluring!” — Zahra Khan, CEO & Editor-In-Chief

“I love feminine, floral scents, and Coach Poppy is just that. My sister gifted me this adorable little bottle that I totally fell in love with. Coach Poppy opens with a burst of fruity, floral notes, settling into some delicious yet sexy after notes. It’s flirty, it’s sexy, and it’s slightly sweet — exactly how I like my scents.”
“Clinique Happy Heart is my absolute favourite fragrance and true to its name, it never fails to bring me to my happy place! It features warm floral notes of mandarin, yellow primrose, and water hyacinth, and a base of blond wood for a pretty, feminine and kinda sexy fragrance that’s perfect for daily use.”

“I’ve loved sporty perfumes all my life until I got this gift from my mum last year. Ever since Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle entered my life, it has become my signature scent. The fresh, fruity, feminine fragrance has a lingering smell and that totally wins hearts! Although some may feel that Coco Mademoiselle is more suitable for formal occasions and nights out, I love wearing it even in the day. It’s my must-have beauty essential in my office tote. Smelling like a diva never hurt anyone, right?”
“Would you believe me if I told you I’ve never bought a perfume for myself? Yep, NEVER! I’ve been blessed with the sweetest friends and sisters who always pamper me with the best gifts — like fancy perfumes! This particular one — Lanvin Eclat De Fleurs has to be by far the best perfume I’ve EVER owned! With a gorgeous floral fruity fragrance; this l’il bomb is perfect for someone who loves a soft, feminine fragrant touch that lasts really long. And if you’re the kinda girl who judges a book by its cover, then trust me, this beauty won’t disappoint one bit!”
“If I had to describe this floral perfume in one word, it would be ‘divine’. This perfume emits such a feminine and delicate scent, it got me falling head over heels in the first spritz. For some reason, the lingering smell of roses reminds me of something from the Victorian era. Oh, and how I could I forget the cute little bottle it comes in? It’s a perfect choice for both day and night, and the fragrance lasts for a while.”
“The first perfume that I used was this magical scent — Cool Water by Davidoff. It was an impulse buy and I have never regretted that decision. It is my go-to perfume and I am obsessed! It has a sweet smell that isn’t too strong and yet is long-lasting. It certainly wins huge brownie points for the bottle — blue and shiny!” — Japleen Kaur, Lifestyle Writer
“I prefer floral fragrances, be it my deodorant or my perfume. Bvlgari Pour Femme is my signature perfume and it’s ideal for a day at work or brunch. This feminine scent includes carnation and raspberry in its top notes, which is a delight to my olfactory senses. Bvlgari ‘s sensual fragrance is all that one needs to make a timeless statement.” — Meghana Choraria, Social Media Executive
“I’m a sucker for fragrances (the real good kind) — it helps me soothe my mind. And it’s the best kind of turn-on too. Lady Million by Paco Rabanne has a soft, soothing scent, which keeps me smelling fresh without giving me a headache. I love the fact that the fragrance lingers on for hours.” — Mansi Chouksey, Graphic Designer
