August 20, 2021


Clubbing can be a lot of fun. Dancing, mingling with new people, and the general excitement that comes from being in a dance club is enough to make anyone want to dance all night long. While you don’t want to wear an overpowering perfume that knocks everyone’s socks off the moment you walk into the club, there are some great perfumes for women who love to dance at clubs.

In this post, we will discuss our best clubbing perfumes and why they work so well.

How To Choose The Best perfume for Clubbing?

Firstly, look for a good fragrance with great projection and longevity.

When it comes to attracting someone at the club with your fragrance, you need big fragrances. These aromatic scents are going to make you stand out, while not being so strong that they repel people; most of these scents should be sweet as well because sweetness is associated with authenticity and openness.

Great projection is achieved by using high-quality ingredients that release an aromatic trail in the air.

2. Frederic Malle Promise Eau de Parfum

Frederic Malle Promise Eau de Parfum

Frederic Malle Promise Eau de Parfum

Vibes just like a club, and it won't wear off even when you're sweating from dancing all night. The introduction is a slightly sweet, yet tart apple fragrance; Promise opens up further with the rich aroma of airy rose.

As the creation of Dominique Ropion enters its early heart phase, the apple departs, leaving only the airy rose to take over. She adds a sanitized light patchouli and mild pepper support, with faux-oud-like cypriol from down low. This one creeps up slowly as time goes on.

The cypriol, now the star of this fragrance, becomes prominent in late-stage dry-down after the rose has faded. The cypriol is present through to the end and creates a beautiful counterpoint to honey-like imperious labdanum. Promise offers excellent projection and longevity for 12 hours on the skin.

Top Notes: Apple, Pink pepper, Clove
Middle Notes:
Bulgarian rose essence, Turkish rose absolute
Base Notes:
Patchouli, Cypriol, Labdanum

Pros:
  • Extremely long-lasting
  • Strong sillage
  • Excellent for partying
Cons:
  • Leans a bit masculine for some women
  • A bit pricey

3. Tiziana Terenzi Extrait De Parfum Ursa

Tiziana Terenzi Extrait De Parfum Ursa

Tiziana Terenzi Extrait De Parfum Ursa

Ursa opens with a pungent, spicy, boozy bouquet that quickly settles into a tobacco-centered scent that is complemented by incense and earthy patchouli notes.

Just wear it because the dried fruits, rum, and that patchouli combo are exciting - everybody will want to get close to you. The more you sweat and get hot from dancing in this summer party atmosphere, the better this fragrance will come off of your skin! 

The tobacco in this perfume has an old-school feel to it - cured golden brown nutty hints at fruitiness similar to fresh cigarette cigarillos yet it maintains its own unique identity blending nicely with the overall composition's earthiness without overpowering it as some more masculine scents tend to do over time. Underlying all of these complexities are subtle leather nuances anchored ever so lightly by just enough woodsy tones.

Top Notes: Nutmeg, Elemi, Dried fruits, Rum
Middle Notes: Patchouli, Olibanum, Incense, Tobacco, Vetiver
Base Notes: Vanilla, Leather, Oud

Pros:
  • Very long-lasting

Thierry Mugler Alien Edp for Women

Thierry Mugler Alien EDP for Women

The Alien perfume by Thierry Mugler is a playful fragrance and sweet - perfect for women looking to have an exciting night out. The warm and seductive scent ignites the senses with its sweetness, making it irresistible not only to other people but also in your own mind!

10. Parfums de Marly Carlisle

Parfums de Marly Carlisle

Parfums de Marly Carlisle 

This fragrance is sweet, spicy, rich, and creamy but not overly so. It's somewhat gourmand in a very cozy way that doesn't steal the show from its complex scent which evolves as it dries down to reveal notes of green apple and vanilla - just enough to give Carlisle some extra flair without being overpowering.

To say that Carlisle is a mesmerizing scent would be an understatement. With its sweet-spicy, rich, and creamy tones, this perfume has it all going for it! Though not overly gourmand in the beginning stages of wear as some may assume from hearing the name "Carlisle", this fragrance actually becomes more complex with notes blending together at what seems like a magic hour when worn - go figure?

And don't forget, you can't get wrong with Patchouli while dancing! Want to know more about patchouli fragrances? Have a look at this article: What Does Patchouli Smell Like? (8 Perfumes You Will Love).
