1. Paint It Black: Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opium
Pay homage to the Rolling Stones’ classic jam and “Paint it Black” with a bangin’ and brilliant first impression when you rock this radiant scent. It constantly ranks high from consumer and industry reports for 2019’s overall best buy perfume selections. Keep your fragrance classy, exotic, and eloquent, just like you! This product was launched in 2014 and delivers delightful rosy pink pepper, jubilant jasmine, a gentle kiss of sweet orange blossoms, and cozy vanilla hints.
Besides the divine smell, this product further made our list due to its impressive longevity to hold against acidic skin, as noted by myself and other reviewers worldwide. Paint the town red as you “Paint It Black” with Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opium!
One old school trick that I’ve learned to master when living with acidic skin is to keep some cotton balls or Q-tips delicately dipped in my preferred scent and stash some in my yoga bag, briefcase, glove compartment, purse, you name it! Unleash a sweet secret surprise!
2. Flower Power: Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb
Can you name woman doesn’t love flowers, right? Well, don’t wait for your birthday, anniversary, or Valentine’s Day to cultivate your own secret garden of glee. Treat and transform yourself youthfully today. Creatively channel your inner flower power with this glamorous, romantic, and addictive product!
Powered by fantastic florals like jazzy jasmine, fresh freesia, and ravishing rose petals, you can emulate a Boho fashionista and glow with this gorgeously smelling gift. It’s also balanced with a pinch of patchouli and a whisper of vanilla. I’ve personally found that the florals help to ease some of the acid in my skin, thus allowing the fragrance to float longer and stronger!
Finally, my simple strategy is spritzing some of this product to my hair brushes, picks, clips, and combs. I’ve discovered that my hair retains the scents longer, so let your manes be the main fragrance!
3. Chanel’s Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Toilette
Hit the workplace with wondrous strength during the day and the dance floor with disco divinity at night. This product perfectly pulsates with an upbeat vibe similar to ABBA’s “Take a Chance on Me” iconic song. Whether you’re in Sydney, Salzburg, Syracuse, Quebec City, or Salt Lake City, we urge you to seriously “take a chance” on Chanel’s Chance Eau Tendre. While it may be a little fruitier than some of the others on today’s list, due to its glimmer of grapefruit notes, it seems to retain a more robust floral profile as its jasmine dominates with gracefulness.
4. Marc Jacobs’s Daisy
You don’t have to have a green thumb or be a green goddess vegan or vegetarian to exude a feeling as fresh as a daisy! This delightful product has recurrently earned product awards by Allure and other reputable mainstream publications.
Because it offers strawberry scents, as opposed to standard citrus ones, it tends to retain more of its violet and jasmine offerings, therefore making it a fabulously floral option. Simmering with seductive sandalwood, it’s perfect for a first date, happy hour with your BFFs, or special occasion like a bridal shower or wedding reception.
How can I make this daisy delight last longer than my daisy duke shorts as a dated fashion trend? For example, by layering it with the body lotion to extend its presence even more, a technique that experts also herald. Layering allows you to disseminate the scent across larger body parts, not just the typical pulse points.
5. Tom Ford’s Orchid Soleil
No, we’re not inferring Harrison Ford, the hunky actor, or the Ford line of versatile vehicles. Instead, we’re adding Tom Ford’s orchid orchestra for the senses to our top 5 best perfumes for acidic skin. It’s cleverly crafted with spicy pink pepper, captivating cypress, tantalizing tuberose, and radiant red spider lily for a smooth, seductive scent that’s sure to please! On the other hand, the pleasing, playful patchouli and delicious vanilla round out its romantic royalty. Perhaps it’ll be your next love interest to fall in love this Fall?
Another helpful bit of advice that works for me is to employ the “walking on air” approach. By spraying my fragrance and literally walking through the mist, I feel like it lasts longer and makes me channel my dramatic diva like Charlize Theron, Gigi Hadid, Nicole Kidman, Ariana Grande, Heidi Klum, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, and other queen bees!
In essence, perfume, ladies, is so integral to our overall self-esteem, sexuality, and self-care. Yet when a fragrance dissolves rapidly, we also lose a bit of our feminine power. Let’s embrace and sustain our girl power today. We hope this article will steer you in the right buying direction, keep you strong and confident, and enable you to smell like roses (and vanilla, orchids, jasmine, etc.) literally!
