Perfume Guide - Perfume Categories - Floral

Traditional Floral perfumes were one of the first perfume categories created and they remain one of the most popular perfume categories for women, with large numbers of floral perfumes created each year by fragrance houses to compliment the demand for this group. Floral fragrances tend to be created for women only as they have a distinctive feminine quality.

Floral perfumes have a vast array of colours and flavours, they can be full creations taking many aspects of this huge range of scents, or simple odes to a particular flower, such as Acqua Di Parma's Iris Nobile. Floral perfumes continue to inspire, especially with the new headspace technology that is now available to perfume houses. This headspace technology offers perfumers the option to clone the essence of flowers from which no oils can be extracted and has led to a surge of new an interesting new scents, such as Marc Jacobs Daisy. Due to the sheer volume of scents that can be captured the floral perfume category is one of the most distinctive and diverse.

Perfumers can let their creativity run wild, enriching florals with green, aldehydic, fruity or spicy hints. With its natural scent, the floral note is one of the most widely used in women's perfumes.
Recently the trend has moved away from traditional floral scents with green notes, white flowers, carnations, roses, jasmine and aldehyde and perfumers have begun to add sweeter, fresher fruit notes to floral fragrances, giving the traditional floral perfume yet another dimenson. Since 1995 these perfumes have grown in number, with the floral body easily identifiable, and the fruity notes, such as apricot, raspberry, lychee and apple are often layered over the top. These new fruity floral perfumes include, Guerlain My Insolence, Donna Karen Red Delicious, Hugo Boss Femme, Lacoste Touch of Pink perfume and Nina Ricci Nina.

However, the more traditional Muget floral perfumes are beginning to become popular again, people are delighting in the fresh nature of these perfumes. These floral scents retain a rich floral bouquet whose keynote is lily of the valley. This timeless white flower, gives perfumes a fresh note of springtime and are a welcome break from the fruitier options preferred by many perfumers today. Muget Floral perfumes include Estee Lauder Pleasures, Cacharel Anais Anais, Dior Diorissimo, Ralph Lauren Glamourous and L Lamb by Gwen Stefani.

Floral Fragrances for Women include:

Other Floral Fragrances:


This is the extract or extrait of a fragrance and represents the scent in its purest form. This often creates a smooth and round texture, which is hard to achieve with the dilution represented in the other concentrations of fragrance.
Eau de Parfum or EDP is one of the most popular forms of fragrance. Eau de Parfum contains between seven to fourteen per cent of fragrance oils and perfume elixirs and is the second strongest, and longest lasting means of wearing a fine fragrance.
Eau de Toilette or EDT is fast becoming the most common means of wearing a fragrance or perfume. EDT’s are not as highly concentrated in oils and elixirs as an EDP or Perfume would be and contain one to three per cent of fragrance oils. This impacts the ability of the fragrance to last and around eighty percent of the oils in an EDT fragrance will evaporate within three hours of application.
Eau de Cologne’s or EDC’s were first popularised by Napoleon. These fragrances are often constructed in a different manner to the traditional French Model and are formulated in one single burst. As a result of this process, EDC’s or Eau de Colognes last the least amount of time on the skin and can dissolve within a couple of hours. EDC’s should be worn as a invigorating spray.
