Perfume that smells like flowers

With summer well and truly here to stay for a while yet, many of us are reaching for the floral scents. Something delicate to wear and perfume that smells like flowers are suitable for the heat.

Of course, it’s not just women who wear floral scents. Many male fragrances have a touch of feminine flowers in them.

These scents will fall more in the Chypre family so there will be a hint of more oriental and woody aromas.

With so many unisex fragrances available on the market today, many of these will have a balance of masculine and feminine scents in their bottle.

There are lots of flowers that perfumes are based on too.





Be careful how much you spray

Floral based perfumes can often smell a little too sweet and sickly if too much is sprayed on, so less is more for the summer months.
The heat from our body as well as the atmosphere can increase the vibrancy of a perfume so it is best to find a delicate scent or spray a smaller amount.


If you are new to the fragrance world, it can be hard trying to find the fragrance scent that is suitable to your skin.

Samples are a great way of trying a new scent and well worth trying on a few different ones from all the different fragrance families.

Once you know your family type and what suits you the most, you can then narrow down what other ingredients you want in your fragrance.

When we think of floral perfumes, we don’t just think of flowers.

The floral family consists of so many elements so we will find scents from fruit, citrus, woody, aldehyte and water green notes.

Flower perfumes do seem to dominate the fragrance world as they are so popular and in the majority of our bottles.

They are also suitable for both male and female scents.

    Thank you so much for this informative post!  I love the smell of plant based perfumes, especially rose smelling ones.  I actually use a deodarant that is rose smelling and it works so good!  The Rose Prick perfume you have posted here actually looks like a good perfume and I love that it is unisex, as I’m a guy who likes to smell like roses hahah.

    • Louise Allen

      Hey Jessie,

      Yes, floral and flower smelling perfume is in my favourite too. You’ll be surprised how many men do you go for more feminine scented fragrances and many women go for the more masculine scents. I know a few women who wear male scents.

       Nowadays there are a lot of unisex fragrances to choose from and the Tom Ford Rose Prick has a delightful scent of rose and woody scents. It’s a great balance.

      If you are interested in looking for an alternative to this scent and very much a more affordable option, you can take a look at FM World’s inspired version at just £34.00!

      We offer samples to buy and try too.
