Picking out a signature scent can be a daunting task because many women want a scent that not only smells great but reflects their personality in some way. With so many scents out there to choose from, it can be difficult to find your perfume soulmate. We have done some scent research and have identified the best perfumes to suit each style and personality type.
If you are very classic and feminine, then you probably would enjoy rocking a floral scent. This style of fragrance gives off a sweet aroma that smells both fresh and romantic. Many would argue that floral scents are the most popular type of scent, and their popularity peaks during the spring and summer months. Here are some of our favorite floral scents:
Marc Jacobs Daisy: This gorgeous fragrance contains notes of jasmine, gardenia, violet petals, and even a hint of wild strawberry. This charming fragrance (with a charming little bottle to match) is available at Sephora.

Just like the gorgeous crystal packaging, this fragrance is the epitome of femininity. This glam scent is available at Macy’s and Dillard’s.
Victoria’s Secret Victoria: This beautiful scent sparkles with heavy rose notes.
