Smellerific: Wear It Loud, Wear It Proud

Print More

Although my expertise is mostly in male fragrances, I still know which perfumes work for women and which ones don’t.
The best fragrance house I would recommend to a woman of any age is Chanel. The timeless elegance of the Chanel brand guarantees that each fragrance in its lines are carefully constructed to such detail that they are often mistaken for niche, artisan perfumes. Ever since the iconic No. 5 came out, Chanel has carved its place in the hearts of all women, and it continues its success with recent winners like Allure Sensuelle. This ’fume flirts with your senses with its bright opening composed of citrus accords and light florals of iris and rose. As the fragrance moves towards the base notes, it gradually becomes more and more enticing as mixed fruit and jasmine entwine with sexy French vanilla and oh-so-sexy patchouli.
This scent is not for girls who are quiet, insecure or naive. Allure Sensuelle requires maturity, grace and refined beauty. It’s for the woman who is sure of what she wants, and knows how to get it. Wear it loud, wear it proud ladies. 4 stars.
