Five Perfumes That Will Forever be Timeless
When you heard the words, 'timeless perfumes' what pops into your mind? Do you remember the good old days, when you wandered into your mothers room and gazed at her perfume bottles. You weren't allowed to touch, but you'd sneakily grab the bottle and sniff it, maybe even spritz a little, so you can smell like a grown up. Well there is nothing like taking a trip down memory lane, so let's reminisce about perfumes that will forever be timeless.
1. Chanel No. 5
Perhaps the boom of this perfume maybe due to Marilyn Monroe's saying that she wears Chanel No.5 to bed. Nonetheless this perfume is timeless for a reason, smelling like a beautiful garden, with celebrities always mentioning how much they love it. Chanel No. 5 is a perfume that marketed itself over the years, proving that it is a classic.
2. Classique by Jean Paul Gaultier
There are not a lot of fragrance bottles that you remember them by their shape rather than their scent, but Classique by Jean Paul Gautlier is definitely one of them. The corseted perfume bottle launched in 1993, and was a man's gift to almost all women at the time. It had such a delicate rose scent with a hint of vanilla, how could it not make it on to our list of timeless perfumes.
3. Miss Dior
While I am more of a Dior Addcit fan, Miss Dior is definitely the perfume that every young girl remembers from her childhood, and every grown woman remembers purchasing. Back in 1947, Christian Dior's sister was actually the face of the Miss Dior perfume. Though the face of Miss Dior has definitely changed over the years, the bottle still has good traces of its iconic original look, making it a timeless perfume.
4. Opium by YSL
This perfume made headlines for two reasons, having a super strong scent, and being named after a narcotic drug. For 35 years, Opium has been named as one of the world's top-selling scents. Do you really need more of a reason why Opium is on our list of timeless perfumes.
5. Angel by Thierry Mugler
Angle by Thierry Mugler will always be a timeless perfume, thank to the famous looking star we've all seen growing up. For me, a star always meant a symbol of a good job, so I was amazed when I found out that the glass I see on my mum's dresser was actually a perfume. A delicate blend of exotic of exotic fruits, soft caramel, honey and chocolate with a hint of vanilla. You can practically smell this by just reading it.
