The Best and Most Iconic Perfumes of All Time (And Why You Should Try Them At Least Once)


The world of fragrances is fickle and ever-changing. Just like in fashion, perfume trends can be pretty challenging to keep up with. One day feminine florals are in and, the next day, you’ll find that fresh citrus scents have taken over.

There are some perfumes, though, that have stood the test of time. These were first released years ago but are still pretty popular among women of all ages today. The thing about using an iconic perfume such as these, however, is that you can’t expect to be the only one wearing it. Does that mean that you should discount these when looking for a perfume to make your signature scent, though?

The answer is NO.

The most iconic perfumes have stood the test of time for good reasons. They’re easy on the nose, never too offensive, and they have been expertly crafted with the right blend of notes to please just about everyone who smells them. For these reasons, it’s always a good idea to turn to these iconic scents when looking for something that could potentially turn into your signature scent. 

Dior J'Adore, for example, has been around for several decades now. Yet, when women search for a fragrance that’s light, floral, and feminine, this scent always makes it to the list of “must try scents.” Another good example of an iconic perfume that has lasted many, many years is Paco Rabanne 1 Million. Along with its iconic bottle design, this scent has graced many fashion shows, has been featured in countless magazines, and have been raved on about by a multitude of celebrities. 

An iconic perfume doesn’t have to be an old one. There are a lot of newer perfumes that have already made it to the list because of their exquisite scent as well. A good example of this would be Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue. Everyone has had a bottle of this fresh, citrusy fragrance at least once in their lifetime, whether it be gifted or bought. Even newer but just as iconic is Gucci Bloom. If you’re looking for a floral fragrance that lends a much more youthful vibe, this is definitely one that needs to go on your list of must-try scents.

Worried about smelling like everyone else? Don’t be. Thanks to your unique body chemistry, whatever perfume you choose will come off slightly different than it will on everyone else. If you have yet to find your signature scent, don’t be afraid to check out the iconic perfumes mentioned above, as well as others that you’ve learned of from your research of your friends’ recommendations.
