1. Eau d’Hermés

This was the first perfume created by Edmond Roudnitska for the luxury fashion brand. The creator has described the scent of this perfume as “The inside of a Hermès bag where the scent of perfume lingered. A note of fine leather-wrapped in fresh trails of citrus fruit, seasoned with spices.” This description speaks a lot of the perfume as it has a strong leather scent to be wrapped around with citrus fruit and layered with seasoned spices.

This scent has become a favorite among perfume connoisseurs around the world. The fame of this perfume can be mostly attributed to its versatility. It's a unisex fragrance that many people would agree is easy on the nose.

2. Chanel No.5

Even those who are not big fans of perfume know of the iconic Chanel No. 5. But what exactly is it about Chanel No. 5 that so many people love it? It isn't just a regular, floral perfume. Created in 1921 by Gabrielle Chanel with perfumer Ernest Beaux, this perfume is feminine elegance in a bottle. With over 80 ingredients, the complex fragrance is nothing like you have ever seen before.

But perhaps contributing to its success is not just the unique scent. The gorgeous bottle with the chiseled stopper is also known to be a part of its iconic look and has not even changed over the years.

3. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium

Its iconic glittering black bottle will surely attract you to this perfume. However, its wonderful smell will make you come back for more. Created by perfumers Nathalie Lorson and Marie Salamagne, along with Olivier Cresp and Honorine Blanc, this fragrant is strong coffee, but is neatly tied with fruity and floral notes like pear and Jasmine. The scent screams "mysterious" and "sophisticated."

Although this fragrance is made for women, it will attract the noses of men, too. Its sexy vibe will be something not everyone can turn away from. For those looking for a more sensual fragrance, then this may be their poison.

4. Jo Malone, Jasmine Sambac & Marigold Cologne Intense

Jo Malone has garnered even more popularity over the years, but this perfume launched in 2018 has been number one in most people's hearts. It is an exotic smell that not many other perfume brands are able to pull off. This scent is mostly composed of jasmine sambac, which is commonly found in India, and paired off with the floral notes of marigold.

When sprayed, you are immediately met with its exotic floral scent. However, the perfume is finished with a honey-like and citrus note that comes off as sweet.


There are many great perfumes around the world. However, the four mentioned above have made their impact in the fragrance world.
