top 5 women’s perfumes

Romance by Ralph Lauren

Original Price: $60.19 | Price with coupon (use code FABU15): $51.16 (total savings = $9.03)

I know what you’re thinking: ‘She obviously picked this one because of the name.’ Well, I won’t lie, it did have a little influence in its spot on this list, but I swear it’s not the only reason! One word describes this scent to me: Pretty. It’s light, floral and ultra feminine. Perfect for a woman who enjoys being girly.


Poison by Dior

Original Price: $103.79 | Price with coupon (use code FABU15): $88.22 (total savings = $15.57)

Is your Valentine sensual and romantic? Then this, my dear, is the perfume for her. Let out her darker side with this rich and bold scent from Dior. Just let her know not to go too crazy with it. Just one spritz will do. This stuff is strong, but sooo good.


Daisy by Marc Jacobs

Original Price: $59.19 | Price with coupon (use code FABU15): $50.31 (total savings = $8.88)

Well, I just had to add this one to the list since it’s my personal all-time favorite! This scent is light, balanced and appropriate for pretty much any occasion. If you want to get her something she can wear anytime, this is the scent for her. Plus, the bottle is super cute which is always a plus.


Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker

Original Price: $31.19 | Price with coupon (use code FABU15): $26.51 (total savings = $4.68)

I recently included this scent in our top Valentine’s Day gifts under $100 post. It truly is a beautiful scent which, like Daisy by Marc Jacobs, can work for almost any occasion. It’s light, floral and, well, lovely!


Sheer by Stella McCartney

Is your girl the natural type? If she’s into all things organic, she’ll surely appreciate this fresh scent from every nature-lovers home girl, Stella McCartney. This fragrance is daytime perfection with a light floral scent and citrus notes.
