Perfumes with floral scents are as old as time, from the days our grandmothers emerged from the room after an evening bake-out, smelling like roses and vanilla. This is why so many people associate floral scents with all things vintage.
Flowers always have and will always be a lady’s best friend. That’s why no matter how ancient mists that smell like roses have existed, a new bottle of rose or Jasmine or rosemary will always be a hit on the fragrance market.
As much as most ladies love being wrapped in beautiful floral scents, it is a consensus that the younger generation does not want the same powdery smell that the nanny used to wear. Now there are a variety of floral scents in the market; scents that are neither powdery nor stale.
There is a wide range of new, lighter, brighter, and maybe even lovelier floral scents in the market today. There is something for everyone. If you want to smell like a particular flower, chances are a whole line of fragrances has different varieties of that smell.
To help you navigate this large and sunny world of floral scents, we have compiled a list of the best floral perfumes you can find in the market today. So, whether you are one to try out a good trend of smell, or someone who prefers something calm and steady, or better yet, someone who wants a good remake of a vintage fragrance, there is something for everyone!
