TOP 10 | Sweet Smelling Perfumes

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume (Curly Spring Blossom)

I not only have the biggest sweet tooth,  I also only crave  “Sugary, Candy Like” perfumes. I thought it would be nice to gather all the delicious fragrances that I’ve fell in love with over the years. If, like myself, floral, woody, spicy or oriental perfumes make you smell like a granny (and not in a good way), than these suggestions could help you find a yummy new scent. BTW I’m assuming that a girl (me) in her forties likes to smell like cake batter! 😉

 

1.

Pink Sugar

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume Pink Sugar

This is the most affordable perfume from this list. Pink Sugar is a warm, delicious & happy fragrance. I would describe it like when cotton candy & vanilla sugar meet maple syrup! Without a doubt a sugar overload that is not just for teenagers!

Notes:
Bergamot, Sicilian Orange, Raspberry, Fig Leaves, Lily of the Valley, Licorice, Strawberry, Red Fruit, Cotton Candy, Vanilla, Caramel, Musk, Wood, Powder.

2.

Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Extreme

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume-Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanilla Extreme (Curly Spring Blossom)

Layer after layer of vanilla scents, what’s not to love! I like that I smell like I have doused myself in vanilla extracts! I love it. Truly intoxicating!

Notes:
Vanilla Sugar, Heliotrope, Vanilla Absolute, Milk.

3.

Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Apricot

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume Comptoir - Sud Pacifique (Curly Spring Blossom)

Creamy, sweet and fruity; it’s complete perfection if you wanna smell like a summer treat. Sweet but with a grown up feel to it. Very sophisticated.

Notes:
Jackfruit, Apricot, Papaya, Vanilla, Sugar Candy.

4.

Yves St-Laurent Black Opium

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume- Yves St-Laurent Black Opium (Curly Spring Blossom)

Full of notes that evoke the sweetness of vanilla, coffee, with some light floral undertones. The smell of this perfume is very different from the original Opium. This is a winning scent for me! This is like a mature version of Prada Candy.

Notes:
Coffee Accord, Orange Blossom, Cedarwood Essence, Patchouli Essense.

5.

Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit 🐰

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume- Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit (Curly Spring Blossom)

I absolutely love Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit perfume! Don’t let the grapefruit in the name trick you – it doesn’t smell fruity at all! It’s a very warm scent with only a hint of citrus.

Notes:
Pink Grapefruit, Lime, Bergamot, Orange, Cedarwood, Madagascar Vanilla.

6.

Dior Hypnotique Poison

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume- Hypnotic Poison (Curly Spring Blossom)

I’ve been wearing this perfume for the last 10 years. Definitely not a summery or daytime scent, but you’ll be tempted to wear it all year round. I get a ton of compliments when I wear this warm, vanilla sexy scent that not only warms up as the day goes on but, mixed with the amber and jasmine, it’s just amazing! I am head over heels in love with this dangerously named perfume. I cannot recommend it highly enough. My only word of advice is to spritz yourself sparingly because a little of this certainly goes a long, long way especially in summer when your skin heats up.

Notes:
Bitter Almond, Caraway Spice, Sambac Jasmine, Cinnamon, Tuberose, Vanilla, Musk, Mosses, Jucarunda Wood.

7.

Viktor & Rolf BonBon

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume- Viktor & Rolf BonBon (Curly Spring Blossom)

I love this perfume so much. The smell is delicious; when I wear it, it feels like I’ve been soaked in candy. It reminds me of the sweetness that Flowerbomb has… minus the flowery notes.  Definitely a cute, feminine, sweet tooth kind of smell. It starts off a little more floral but becomes all sugary after some evaporation. Definitely smells edible. The caramel scent is the longest lasting part of the perfume with a hint of vanilla sweetness.

Notes:
Caramel, Mandarin, Orange Blossom

8.

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Gold Couture

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume- Juicy Couture Viva La Gold Couture (Curly Spring Blossom)

I prefer Gold Couture over the classic Viva La Juicy perfume. It has more vanilla than the classic one, which is what I enjoy the most about this aroma. The main notes for me are definitely vanilla, amber, and caramel, although there are some notes of berries that come through and don’t make it too overpoweringly sweet. Think warm caramel and honey drizzled over berries and vanilla custard… and you have Gold Couture!!

Notes:
Berries, Honeysuckle, Golden Amber, Caramel, Vanilla.

9.

Mugler Aura

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume- Mugler Aura (Curly Spring Blossom)

At first, it’s minty and fresh (Yes like Listerine) but also has a mysterious base note. After a couple of hours, Aura elegantly and seamlessly morphs into a custard bourbon vanilla scent that reminds me of Fresh Pastries. Aura is an exceptionally well engineered perfume that carries you away on a nose-filling journey.

Notes:
Rhubarb leaves, Vanilla bourbon, Orange blossom, Wolf wood.

10.

Maison Margiela “REPLICA” By The Fireplace

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume- Maison Margiela REPLICA By The Fireplace (Curly Spring Blossom)

This perfume is my newest obsession. It does have a smoky base to it but it also has a lovely bourbon vanilla side with a touch of cinnamon. Someone told me that it smells like roasting marshmallows on a fire. This fragrance stirs up memories of times shared by the fire in the great outdoors as well as by the fireplace. It does tend to be more of an Autumn/Winter fragrance and it’s especially delicious mixed with Black Opium!

Notes:
Clove Oil, Chestnut Accord, Vanilla Accord

 

Honorable Mention…

Mugler Angel

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume- Mugler Angel (Curly Spring Blossom)

Key Notes:
Caramel, Chocolate, Honey, Vanilla

Elizabeth & James Nirvana Bourbon 🐰

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume- Elizabeth & James Nirvana Bourbon (Curly Spring Blossom)

Key Notes:
Tuberose, Oakwood, Bourbon Vanilla

Prada Candy

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume- Prada Candy (Curly Spring Blossom)

Key Notes:
White Musks, Benzoin, Caramel Accord

Giorgio Armani Beauty Si

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume- Giorgio Armani Si (Curly Spring Blossom)

Notes:
Pear, Freesia, Amber Wood.

Maison Margiela “REPLICA” Funfair Evening

Top 10 | Sweet Perfume- Maison Margiela REPLICA FUNFAIR EVENING (Curly Spring Blossom)

Key Notes:
Toffee Apple, Orange Blossom Infusion, Caramel Candy

 

Looking at this list of favorites, you can quickly see that the key word for me is VANILLA. I hope that it gave you, my “SWEET” friends, some great suggestions or possibly made you smile because we have the same taste. Any other perfumes I should try?

 

Note: I try my best to buy only cruelty-free products when it comes to my makeup, skincare & bath products. That being said perfume that are cruelty-free and smells good on me are extremely hard to find so this list contains only a few CF options! Transitioning is key here…

Demeter Fragrance Library Orchid Collection ❥ A Mother’s Day Treat

Demeter Fragrance Library Orchid Collection 2016

Ever since I bought my first bottle of Demeter Perfumes a lifetime ago (if my memory serves me right, my first scent was Orange Cream Pop, and I was hooked), I’ve developed a massive crush on their products. Demeter Fragrance Library and I are in love and the love is real girls!! What’s not to love? They have so many different scents, they are really affordable and they are easily available!

Cattleya Orchid

When I graciously received a package from the brand, let’s just say that I was beyond happy!! You made a grown-ass woman giggle like a schoolgirl. Truth be told, upon receiving it, I rapidly sprayed all five aromas across my arms. I then realized that maybe I abused a little after a few « mature » ladies looked at me funny, but what the heck, when you are in love, you tend to shout it loudly from the rooftops!! Their reactions made me think: I normally prefer utterly sweet perfumes – smelling like dessert day in, day out is my mission in life. What if those new fragrances were not for me? What if my skin chemistry was rejecting those floral essences? I was intrigued and got scared but… (Drumroll!!), it turns out that all five (not kidding) are out of this world and are perfectly suited for me!!!

Orchid Collection 2016 Limited Edition


The first Orchid Collection Set includes 3 bottles of 1 oz for 35$ (or less). In my frugal book, it’s more than affordable for such fun fragrances! If you are wondering how can these very fair priced fragrances be so good, beats me too but I can assure you that Demeter perfumes smell like the real thing! An Orchid fragrance smells like an Orchid and my Angel Food cologne smells like the real stuff.

Demeter Fragrance Library Orchid Collection 2016

Orchids and Mothers are both natures wonders, so nothing seemed simpler than putting the two together for Mother’s Day.

Twilight
Warm, spicy and sultry, Twilight Orchid is an ideal scent to wear anytime, but designed with Mom’s special evening in mind.

To Yo Ran
Light and lemony, perfect for daytime, or for layering with another fragrance.

Aphrodite’s Slipper
With its cinnamon and clove notes, Aphrodite’s Slipper is perfect all day long.

Demeter Fragrance Library Orchid Collection 2016

Before trying these, I didn’t have a clue on each perfume basic notes! After extensive nose testing, Twilight became my totally favorite « sweet » scent of the five, even with its notes of spices. Maybe as I get older, I adapt to new aromas and open my sense of smell to other delicious bouquet.

The Orchid Collection also includes 2 other cologne sprays:

Demeter Fragrance Library Orchid Collection 2016

Calypso Orchid

Inspired by the velvety texture of fresh calypso orchid petals, this fragrance captures the olfactory impression of these pink colored flowers, creating a unique exotic, and almost tropical effect.  We tried to create the experience like “bathing in orchid petals’’, taking a truly a different approach to constructing this fragrance.

Calypso Orchid is also known as the Fairy Slipper or Venus Slipper because of its fantastical, whimsical shape.

Cattleya Orchid

Cattleya is a slightly sweet and creamy floral with a citrusy top note, but we used patchouli to create a different kind of depth and sophistication.

This “Queen of the Orchids” is named after botanist William Cattleya, who was the first to cultivate the Cattleya, and one of the first botanists to study orchids.

Other great thing to know about the products:

♥ 95% of their ingredients are derived from natural or renewable resources.

♥ No artificial colors. Any color in a Demeter scent is a natural product of the ingredients used to make the scent. This is why most Demeter scents are clear.

♥ No binders or emulsifiers

♥ No phthalates

♥ Alcohol naturally fermented from corn

♥ Never Tested on Animals

Of all the Single Note Scents available at Demeter, this Orchid Collection is designed to please a large number of girls.  With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it would make a perfect gift for your loved ones!

The only small downside of some Demeter fragrances is that they don’t last all day. Maybe it’s because they normally try to create scents with the combinations of the fewest ingredients possible, that I don’t know, but for a consumer, you always want to get the most bang for your buck. With Demeter, at such affordable prices, you really get a great value for money. I only have praises for this brand: They are fresh, unpretentious and always looking to add to their collection. The brand wants to triggers our strongest emotional response. Choosing and wearing a Demeter fragrance is a personal expression of that emotional response. With collections such as Zombie, Elvira and Zodiac, you are certainly not going to go unnoticed…

To some it up, here is, in their own words, their mission statement and boy do I agree …

Demeter Fragrance Library wants to expand the use of fragrance, each day, everywhere. This is because every time you smell something you love, you smile. And the world needs more smiles.  It is just that simple, changing the way people feel, through scent.

Smelling Good Has Never Been This Easy!
