Favorite Honey Perfumes!

With autumn around the corner, I am already thinking of what fragrances I am going to start wearing. Honey is a favorite note of mine to accompany incoming fall weather, with its sweet and edible composition. Honey accompanies many types of fragrances, but is mainly used as an underlying note in florals, woodsy, and oriental fragrances. 

For a sweet, gourmand honey fragrance try Angel by Thierry Mugler.
Angel is an oriental vanilla perfume and is an intoxicating blend of sweet substances. The dominating notes in this fragrance are patchouli, dark chocolate, honey, caramel, vanilla, cotton candy, tonka bean and musk with underlying florals and citruses. It may sound like a cavity, but if you like sweet and edible fragrances then you are bound to love this. Angel is great for wearing out in the evening and in colder weather. 

For a white floral honey scent try Lady Million by Paco Rabanne.
Lady Million has become very popular in the last couple of years and is meant to depict the picture of gold, wealth, and happiness. This is a seductive sweet-floral fragrance, best worn in fall weather. Honey is the most prominent note followed by raspberry, a mix of white florals, patchouli, citrus, and amber. Wear this to  receive many compliments and smell great all night long, as it is very long lasting!

For an oriental spicy fragrance try Chergui by Serge Lutens
Chergui is gorgeous, smoky, dark, and mysterious. This is a unisex fragrance that I find smells completely different on a man than it does on a woman, complimenting both. The main note is honey followed by tobacco, amber, incense, sandalwood, and just a touch of floral. This is long lasting and a bit heavy, so one spray will do wonders. This is not to be worn during hot weather, but on cold days this fragrance shines.

If you have a favorite fragrance with honey, please comment and let me know!

  1. My favorite honey fragrance is "Place Vendome" Boucheron. It's smells like a much more gorgeous, deep, grown up version of Marc Jacobs "Honey", and without the tacky bottle lol, in my opinion. I love honey, amber, anything spicy oriental and gourmand, so I have GOT to try that "Chergui" it sounds divine! :) great post!

    1. Chergui is definitely much more "grown up" than the other two that I have listed. All Serge Lutens fragrances are just so different and unique smelling to me. You will definitely have to give Chergui a try! I listed a link for a sample below my description :)
