Best Fragrances

Did you know that smell is the strongest evocation of memory? That means the scent you choose to match your personality is going to be pressed into people’s memory of you. With that said, there are hundreds of perfumes, colognes and fragrances on the market to choose from - so how do you go about deciding which one is right for you or as a gift for someone else?

Men’s fragrances: Did you know that the difference between a cologne and a parfum is simply the concentration of alcohol used and men’s fragrances are available in both? Men’s fragrances vary vastly in terms of scent notes and families and are suitable for all occasions from daytime events to evening affairs.

Women’s fragrances: Did you know that, contrary to popular belief, you shouldn’t rub your wrists together after spraying perfume? This makes the top notes fade faster whereas allowing it to absorb into your skin creates a scent that is unique to you. You can learn more about how to apply perfume and the difference between top and base notes here.

Scent is lovely but bottle needs an upgradeBought as a gift from reputable supplier. Scent is fresh & appealing, outer packing is lovely but the quality of the bottle was disappointing for a Dolce & Gabbana product made in Italy. Sharp, unfinished corner on the silver topper & a cheap looking plastic cap isn't nice. Recommend to check the bottle before purchase. Show details

Smell changedI've been using Chanel no 5 for quite a few years, so I know what it smells like.
This year I purchased a new bottle from Chemist Warehouse (Australia) and it doesn't smell the same! It is sharper and has more of a toilet spray smell than it's iconic powder fresh smell!
Really disappointed! Show details

For HerI love Narcissco Rodriguez perfumes. Have been buying the pink and black bottles for a few years. They have a subtle sensual scent. Have been asked what perfume I'm wearing many times. Was gifted four samples from the range. Love them all. Show details

Gorgeous scentI love this subtle yet feminine smell. As per the other reviewers, yes it gets compliments and I love the smell and don't get sick of it unlike some other branded perfumes. I've been using this over two years now and thank goodness they haven't changed the scent to something else. Yes it's a little pricey but so worth it! Show details

Great fragrance, lasts for hoursI bought it on the Black Friday sale. I like how it smells fresh in the beginning and then the fruity smell settles down and "Musk and Cedar" take over ( the base ) and it lasts for a few hours.
Really Happy with my purchase very refreshing for summer and Moreover it is Unisex. Show details

SAME problem...after 30+ years of using this, it now has no smell!! After spraying on, its gone!! will not buy again - anywhere!! Show details

Somethings changedI've worn this since the early 90's but my last bottle doesn't smell as good. I rarely use it now. Bought from Boots ,they're reputable. I did read that the EU had banned certain ingredients used for perfumery and JPG had to ammend scents. This must have been one of them. So disappointed. Show details

Long lasting scent. LOVE ITPurchased the 100ml eau de parfum after spraying it 1st thing in the morning, I could still smell it after a 40 minute 5pm swim. It has a beautiful long lasting fragrance. Not overwhelming like say Youth Dew or Opium used to be. Really pleased that I took a chance and bought it from chemist warehouse for $109.99 instead of $214 in Myer. Show details

Asthma triggerAn awful scent. I came across it in hospital when a nurse wearing it triggered my asthma. It contains something that is lethal to some people.
Others include Red Door, Paris, Sunflowers, some men scents too. They’ve all got something in them I’m unable to define. Cheap and nasty for me.
Good luck to those who can tolerate it Show details

I've been using this for 3 years now. Love itPersonally I think it is the most amazing smelling perfume I have ever used. I have been completely obsessed with it ever since I bought it 3 years ago, and don't plan on changing it anytime soon. It actually makes my mood better when I put it on haha.
It's cheap now and it just smells so amazing
