Classic. The word doesn’t mean outdated; it means basic, fundamental, prototypical—what all newcomers are striving to be. The word classic has class at its root, and if we apply the word to a scent it means a fragrance that transcends trends and hype. It’s a scent that sums up generations of grace and elegance with every whiff. If you’re looking for a classic scent for the 2011 year, here are three fragrances that belong to the classic category.
Daisy by Marc Jacobs
Daisy can be a younger person’s fragrance because of its obvious flowery nature, but its long lasting musky base notes of white woods and vanilla make it graceful enough for an older crowd. The sweet fruity top notes only last for a moment and segue into a nice powdery undertone that lasts all day. The daisy perfume is not a complex fragrance and is great for when you want to think about the summer time.
Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere
Subtle, lemony opening notes develop into a spicy floral heart making Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere a very perky fragrance. It is a lightened, toned-down version of the 1921 No. 5 scent, with less of the aldehydes of the original. This Chanel perfume has a base that is buttery and lasts for close to 4 hours.
Angel by Thierry Mugler
Thierry Mugler Angel perfume is a very popular winter fragrance. Juicy mandarin notes blend with patchouli and chocolate sweet to make a tangy scent perfect for the night. It is a mature perfume that lasts for a very long time.
