This timeless classic perfume was launched in 1921 and has remained a favorite for classy and sophisticated women ever since.

Chanel opens with floral combination, notes blended of citrusy, fruity notes,and aldehyde notes. Middle notes of jasmine, rose, and iris. Then end with base woody notes of sandalwood, vetiver, oak moss, patchouli, and vanilla.

"I love the scent! It smells like you went to a really luxurious hotel and used their fancy soaps :') it has just this "luxury soapy" scent to it. Super elegant! I might buy me a bottle but I have been just concerned if the scent is too popular since I bet most of us want to be some-what original."

2. Carolina Herrera Parfum 

Carolina Herrera Eau De Parfum

Carolina Herrera Eau De Parfum - Its olfactory accord is characterized by an impeccable combination of white flowers, animatic, mannered, and green notes. Its top notes are apricot blossom, orange blossom, bergamot sicilian essential oil, Brazilian rosewood, and green notes.

In its distinctly floral heart, the Indian tuberose and other white flowers such as lily of the valley, narcissus, conventional jasmine, and Spanish jasmine stand out on very complimentary hints of ylang-ylang, honeysuckle, and hyacinth.

Finally base notes, its background gives it strength through civet, amber, and musk splendidly balanced with woods and mosses such as sandalwood, cedar, vetiver, and oakmoss.

"Bright yellow floral, a bit creamy and very happy. Very classic and easygoing happy fragrance. If this was a woman, it would probably be Jane Fonda.
While I am not a fan of yellow florals, if I had to pick one it probably would be this one"

3. Yves Saint Laurent Opium For Mature Women 

Yves Saint Laurent Opium Eau De Parfum Spray for Women

Yves Saint Laurent Opium Eau De Parfum - This flowery spicy oriental perfume is perfect for wintertime, it has impressive longevity and notes which instantly warm you up.

As its name suggests, it’s true opium and intoxicating as a true perfume for older women. If you’re the type of woman who loves oriental perfumes, it’s the type of release you have to try out. Before being too strong, it has to be a perfume that is easy to wear during the winter. In the summer, you should probably stay away from it.

But its 24-hours skin performance is a must-try during the winter with the specification that it can become cloying if you over spray it. You can for sure find a YSL cologne for the man in your life.

"Definitely a party girl scent. It reminds me of the late 00s. Its sort of slutty, sultry and also trashy. It balances the vibe of both classy and trashy quite well. Its peppery, really peppery but there is a smooth vanilla that cuts through along with a coffee element which is intoxicating. I dont love it but I like it enough to want to wear it. Its definitely a clubbing scent. And its pretty safe. Very common though."

4. Best Floral Perfume for Older Women - Elizabeth Arden My Fifth Avenue EDP

Elizabeth Arden My Fifth Avenue

Elizabeth Arden My Fifth Avenue EDP - It combined with magnolia, lily of the valley, and lilac in the top notes, give it that aroma between romantic, refreshing, and fruity.

In addition, with heart notes of nutmeg, peach, and flowers, its character is accentuated, making it a hybrid between innocence and sensuality.

To finish, in its base notes of cloves, iris, amber, sandalwood, vanilla, and musk, a touch of exoticism and strength is printed that makes it an irresistible combination. This perfume is bold and strong and will boost your confidence as a mature woman. This delicious spring has a moderate trail and longevity. It can be used every day and on all kinds of occasions.

The fragrance is an excellent ally for offices and cosmopolitan life, which adds that extra versatility for practical women with lives. Intense and, above all, very feminine. This is how we found that you don’t need to dress like a teenager to look charming and the same goes for fragrances.

"Elizabeth Arden My Fifth Avenue is a floral perfume. Longevity and projection are average. I owned J'adore and all the flankers. This smells exactly like a budget J'adore to me, without the fruit or melon notes. Given that I've swapped all of my J'adore for other things, I can't say I'm a fan of this either. I much prefer the original Fifth Avenue, but I'm very glad to have a chance to sample this for myself."

5. Best Perfume for Old Ladies - Eternity Eau De Parfum 

Calvin Klein ETERNITY Eau de Parfum

Eternity Eau de Parfum is the Calvin Klein signature interpretation of romance. The modern floral fragrance is inspired by diamond wedding rings, which, like fragrance, can be described with one word: eternity.  

The fragrance Eternity went on the market in 1988. Its smell is so beautiful. Eternity is like a hug full of flowers, a perfect combination of lilies of the valley, roses, lilies, and jasmine with very romantic tones that allow the wearer to bring out the sensuality that is inside.

Its fresh scent allows older women to feel exceptional and gives them self-confidence when wearing it. This luxurious and timeless composition of flowers, citrus, and conifers is a promise of infinite love, just like Calvin Klein Eternity Eau de Parfum. A soft touch of exotic sandalwood, musk, and a few hints of amber linger until the end of the day.

"Eternity is quite a neutral scent in my opinion. It's nice and I like it but it lacks the special something that would make me wanna grab it often. I'm kind of torn on the longevity; I smelled it a few hours ago and couldn't smell anything but now I smelled again and I can smell a little of it. Sillage is moderate but not super strong, which I like. I would consider it unisex, it's kind of feminine but I'm sure a man could pull it off too.
Overall a very pretty, neutral scent."

6. Romance by Ralph Lauren Eau De Parfum

Romance by Ralph Lauren perfect fragrance for older women

Ralph Lauren's classic floral eau de parfum is a feminine scent suitable for younger or older women alike. This is fun yet mature. The aroma starts with citrus flowers and jasmine scent and settles into a wooded perfume base that hints at warmth and intimacy.

It is a good older women's perfume! 

"Like so many other reviewers, I absolutely LOVED this fragrance in the late 90s! Like so much that I bought fake dupe oils of it on the street before I could afford a bottle. There was just something it that pulled people in. It absolutely screamed “romance.” I remember wearing it so much that I was just done with it, and I feel like that about so many of my first perfumes, unfortunately (except for JPG Classique, which I didn’t wear much of back but fell in love with recently). As I read these reviews I could suddenly remember exactly how it smelled. While it’s not something I’d wear daily, I wish I had a bottle of the old formulation to keep for special occasions. I could imagine wearing this as a bride or even on a date (gasp!) I can’t believe I’m saying this because I’ve become such a perfume snob that I almost felt an aversion to revisit this fragrance memory, but I’m glad that I did. It’s really a shame that the reformulariam doesn’t work. I feel like that is the case for so many scents that remind me of my youth, and it’s so devastating !!"

7. La Vie Est Belle Eau De Parfum

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle L'Eau de Parfum, top fragrance

It's really cute..it's beautiful! La Vie est belle means Life is pretty. This fruity Classic Eau de Parfum LANCOME features an exclusive mix of notes, similar to the other fragrances in Lancome's 'Signature' line.

La Vie est belle opens with notes of black currant and pear, which give it a fruity scent. The heart is a blend of iris, jasmine, and orange blossom, producing a floral aroma. As it dries down, sweet notes of patchouli, tonka bean, vanilla and praline create an edible aroma like you would find in these desserts from French-speaking Canada called Canele.

This sweet and exotic fragrance, best perfume for a mature woman who wants to add some spice to her everyday attire.

"Instant love. I used up my tiny sample vial in 2 days and can’t wait for my next perfume haul to purchase a bottle. Before starting my fragrance journey this year, I thought I hated quite a few notes in this scent: vanilla, jasmine, tonka bean, patchouli, black currant. I thought gourmands weren’t for me. Well, La Vie Est Belle has proven me wrong on all accounts. It’s just lovely on my skin, I keep trying to bring my wrists up to my face to smell them. I detect the vanilla and the jasmine, but it’s the iris and the orange blossom on the dry down that pulls it all together. The gourmand praline undertones are delicious and I adore how the patchouli and black currant keep it smoky-sweet."

8. L'air by Nina Ricci EDP

L'air by Nina Ricci  - the classic best perfume

L'Air du Temps is a classic perfume recognized by most as one of the world's most sensible perfumes. The name translates to "the air of time", which means it's fashionable in its time and has been for a long while.

It injects fun and femininity back into women's lives with its array of beautiful ingredients that are timeless. It's a floral fragrance if you ever had to guess what type of fragrance it smells like, but the fragrance notes should tell you anyway: citrus fruits, lily-of-the-valley, jasmine and more!

"This one starts with a very beautiful opening, a spring blooming garden, amazing magnolia scent, the scent you get sitting under a magnolia tree. The honeysuckle note is also very realistic.
But then, same thing happened to me...the dry down. Something like sweet rose sorbet, dirt, dust, old furniture. I wouldn't blame patchouli for that, because it is almost undetectable. Maybe the rosewood note that I've seen listed.
They could have been done this intentionally, trying to express the scent of "air", which can obviously smell of dust. Metaphorically speaking, the fragrance reminds me of Persephone, the Greek goddess that lived half a year in the sunlight, and the other half underground.
The shift between the opening and the drydown is incredible (and I mean that in a bad way). If it weren't for the beautiful opening, I'd suspect a bad batch or something.
Well, nothing more to say, I'm just disappointed...beautiful bottle though."

Top notes of rose, peach, carnation, neroli. Heart notes: gardenia, jasmine, rose, ylang ylang, orchid, lily, orris. Base notes ambergris, musk, vetiver, benzoin, cedarwood, sandalwood, cardamom.

9. Estee Lauder Pure White Linen For Older Women

Pure White Linen fragrance for older women

The Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Lady’s Perfume is a superb option for mature women who don’t wish to spend too much money on their fragrance.

This fragrance opens up with fruity raspberry, pear, apple, freesia and Italian mandarin orange. The middle notes are of rose,pink tulip and white blossoms . At the end, base notes of patchouli, cedar and white heliotrope complete the scent.

This beautiful perfume for the mature woman is going to bring you comfort and relaxation when you wear it during casual outings. Whether you're at an office setting or on the town, the Pure White Linen woman's perfume will always make you feel at-ease!

"Unlike its pillar, this one is sweeter, has more citrus and brighter. It’s like a little sister to the original white linen. While its older sibling is more mature, serious, cold, modest and even uptight, this one is more cheerful and warmer but still retains the maturity, cleanliness and politeness. It smells like fresh laundry under the sunshine, very summery and fresh. Longevity is above average and sillage is moderate. I liked to wear this on summer days at home to keep me freshened all day long."

10. Chloé Eau De Parfum

Chloe EDP - best perfume for mature women

Chloe is the powerful and modern perfume for those who aren't afraid to blaze their own trail through life.

"This was my first "expensive" perfume I ever purchased. I felt a little dangerous one day after work and spend all my tips on this. The Macy's Lady knew exactly what I would LOVE! It was nothing I have ever smelled before, so effortless & airy. This is the most perfect rose perfume... the cedar, lily & magnolia makes it clean in a way. I agree with most peoplel that this is expensive shampoo vibe. One of my most complimented fragrance. Femininity in a bottle!
