Shopping for perfumes can be tricky; some can be too sweet for the senses that instead of leaving a good impression, its overpowering scent turns people off (or even trigger a headache.) So if you're currently looking for a new scent to wear everyday, here are a few tried-and-tested, light fragrances you can try:
Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet
P5,350/50ml and P7,700/100ml, SM Makati, Podium, Shangri-La, SM Mall of Asia, and SM Aura
For a subtle scent, dab a hint of peony and Damascus rose with a base note of white musk on your pulse points!
Anna Sui Fantasia Mermaid
P2,700/30ml, P3,670/50ml, and P4,740/75ml, FRESH stores
The mermaid-inspired design of this perfume's bottle is just as playful as its scent. At first whiff, Fantasia Mermaid has a vibrant fruity smell, with its top notes being blood oranges, sweet mandarins, including cardamom (an Indian spice!) and pepper, but it mellows down into a wearable citrusy but woody scent.
Jimmy Choo Floral
Price available upon request, Rustan's The Beauty Source
A single spritz of this light floral fragrance with a blend of magnolia and sweet pea and a musky-woody base will leave you feeling classy without even trying.
Bvlgari Omnia Pink Sapphire
P2,898/25ml, P3,950/40ml, P5,080/65ml, Rustan's The Beauty Source
This luxe perfume has a fruity-floral mix of pink pomelo, frangipani, and tiara flower that produces a sweet and girly scent that's great for the office just as it is for special occasions. Its base note of vanilla musk keeps the perfume from smelling too sweet.
