6. Ange ou Demon Eau de Parfum – Givenchy

10 Best Oriental Floral Perfumes for Her (7)


Founded in 1952, Givenchy has a unique approach to perfumery. Blending French elegance and American glamour with expertise that is truly breathtaking. The style that the put forth was best modelled by Audrey Hepburn.

Ange ou Demon is one of the finest, in our eyes. Sweet and woody with a deceptively clean scent it mirrors the bottle that holds it. Balsamic at first, this aromatic oriental perfume blooms with orchid, lily and buttery ylang-ylang. A sweet vanilla undertone makes it almost girlish once it settles. The base of creamy rosewood and dense oak moss make it sophisticated and somewhat androgynous when the full force is in effect.

An ideal warming scent for winter days, it is not as long-lasting as some oriental scents with 5+ hours, although sillage is good.

Top Notes:

Thyme, Saffron, Mandarin Orange

Mid Notes:

Ylang-Ylang, Orchid, Lily

Base Notes:

7. Good Girl Légère Eau de Parfum – Carolina Herrera

10 Best Oriental Floral Perfumes for Her (8)


Venezuelan-born American designer Carolina Herrera launched her self-named brand in 1980, and her chic style quickly gained her acclaim across the world. Her first fragrance, the truly eponymous Carolina Herrera Eau de Parfum was launched in 1988. Since then she has released 133 perfumes in collaboration with some of the most talented perfumers of the age.

Opens with a trio of citrus notes (lemon, bergamot and orange). Floral notes of ylang-ylang, rose, jasmine and tuberose bloom nicely. These florals entwine with an eclectic mix of oriental spices that prevents it from becoming too saccharine. Tonka bean and ylang-ylang are the stars of the show.

A grown-up version of the original Good Girl perfume, this is an incredibly complex scent with a mind-boggling list of notes. Despite this, the final product is coherent and beautiful.

Good Girl Légère embodies Carolina Herrera’s unadulterated chic from its presentation to its scent. The elongated bottle, shaped like a high-heeled shoe, is sophisticated and dynamically coloured in golds, blues, and blacks.

This is a versatile scent that can be worn at any time. It’s long-lasting at 6+ hours with medium sillage. Certainly one for the collection.

8. Viva La Juicy Bowdacious Eau de Parfum – Juicy Couture

10 Best Oriental Floral Perfumes for Her (9)


A wonder brand of the early 2000s, Juicy Couture, is best known for their tracksuits. Favouring a vibrant, fun, and very 00s style, they moved into perfumes in 2006 and since then have released 42. The majority are somewhat saccharine, but all are pleasant.

Viva La Juicy is both very typical of Juicy Couture and a little more grown-up, despite its Disney princess-esque bottle. The oversized bow that adorns its neck embodies the ‘Juicy’ style.

The scent itself opens sweetly with hints of pear, melon and coconut. Floral notes of Tiare flower, jasmine and lily bloom beautifully. They are balanced by the creamy/vanilla scent of tonka bean and sharp, almost bitter orange.

Upon dry-down, this fragrance becomes more focused on coconut, tonka bean and Tiare flower with hints of ginger. Far better than I was expecting.

Moderate longevity of 4+ hours and moderate sillage requires the perfume to be re-applied more often. Viva La Juicy is a sophisticated fragrance and a perfect introduction to oriental-floral scents.

Top Notes:

Melon, Pear, Italian Mandarin

Mid Notes:

Jasmine Sambac, White Ginger, Lily, Tiare Flower

Base Notes:

Drift Wood Tonka Bean, Coconut Milk

10 Best Oriental Floral Perfumes for Her (10)

Influenced by his mixed Indian and French-Canadian heritage, Gorham has created some of the most exciting and unique perfumes on the market today. With 57 perfumes in their portfolio, Byredo continues to grow and consistently produces superior perfumes.

Casablanca Lily is striking; strong notes of gardenia, carnation and tuberose hit the nose first, followed by the dark sweetness of honey and plum. Upon dry-down, the freshly cut woody smell of rosewood is delightful.

Presented in the typical Byredo bottle, Casablanca Lily is enduring with a light sillage and a pleasantly warm scent which can be worn at any time of day or year with confidence. There are few perfumes which can boast the same.

Top Notes:

Gardenia, Plum

Mid Notes:

Indian Tuberose, Carnation

Base Notes:

Rosewood, Honey

10. 500 Years Eau de Parfum – Etat Libre d’Orange

10 Best Oriental Floral Perfumes for Her (11)


A relatively fresh-faced perfume house, Etat Libre d’Orange was founded in 2006 by Etienne de Swardt with the motto “le parfum est mort, vive le parfum!” – perfume is dead, long live perfume!

His fragrances are a celebration of sensuality and desire. All of their scents are unisex in nature, though specific do tend to lean slightly towards one gender or the other.

500 Years is one of Etat Libre d’Orange’s truly androgynous fragrances. Opens with zesty bergamot, but soon becomes a warm, spicy, and complex combination of rose, cacao and woody notes making this a true cold-weather fragrance. Incredible how a few select notes can create such a masterful oriental floral fragrance. Highly recommended.

Contained in a beautiful bottle that is emblazoned with their ornate logo, this bottle has a gold-toned topper that finished the look perfectly. Simple and effective, this scent relies on high-quality ingredients to create a layered and blooming fragrance. This is an incredibly durable fragrance with 8+ hours of longevity and enormous sillage.
