Best Fragrance

Top 10 Rated Fragrance Rating and Reviews 2015

By

Women’s fragrances are of course a huge matter of personal preference and with so many to choose from, selecting a mere 10 was challenging. We looked at a lot of different aspects involved in choosing the scents that make up our top 10 list:

1) Consumer popularity speaks volumes. They don’t become best-sellers without a reason!
2) Industry recognition. A select few out of thousands receive awards and we definitely wanted to recognize those.
3) Accessibility is key as a fragrance needs to be tried on before purchasing so you can make sure it mixes well with your body chemistry.
4) Variety of day/night, or season.
5) Price can vary greatly and we wanted fragrances that varied from pricey to inexpensive.
6) Different scent categories are represented so consumers can see the variety there is to choose from.
7) The option to layer. Fragrances should have different products to choose from.
8) Trends. While some consumers are purchasing the “new” fragrances others prefer a classic.

Like the clothes you choose, a fragrance should be comfortable and make you feel beautiful. It needs to be a fit in order to wear it. Choosing a fragrance can be overwhelming. We recommend taking your time and trying them on. Lastly, when a fragrance wins a FiFi Award, it’s an equivalent of an Oscar in the fragrance world.
