That being said, what are the best fragrances of all time that will ensure people remember you fondly, no matter how long ago they met you?
Let’s find out!

No. 5 Eau de Parfum

One of the most iconic fragrances ever, Chanel’s No. 5 Eau de Parfum was first created in 1921. It combines over 80 scents, including May rose, jasmine, citrus, and ylang-ylang to create a fragrance that, over 100 years later, still resonates with everybody who experiences it.

Black Orchid

Launched in 2006, Black Orchid isn’t as old, nor does it have the pedigree of No. 5. However, it has captivated the hearts and nostrils of its users in the same way that No. 5 has. Black Orchid is designer Tom Ford’s debut fragrance. And if you’ve ever wondered how he’s had such an illustrious career, this fragrance gives you an insight. It is sexy, and it is elegant. Also, it is suitable for both males and females. Its many notes include the namesake black orchid, ylang-ylang, sandalwood, vanilla, and jasmine.


Launched in 1992, Thierry Mugler’s Angel will be instantly recognizable to many women who had their teenage years in the 90s given. 30 years later, it’s still going strong and is very much loved by many. Housed in an iconic star-shaped bottle, Angel has a memorable, sweet, soft, and floral fragrance that perfectly combines a patchouli base, with bergamot, helional, red berries, and praline, among others.

CK One

CK One is one of the most popular and most iconic unisex fragrances of all time. Launched in 1994, this scent by Calvin Klein quickly became a staple of every fashionable person’s wardrobe. It is crisp, it is clean, and it is clear. If you want a nice, fruity fragrance that doesn’t do too much, CK One is what you’re looking for.
Its notes include pineapple, papaya, nutmeg, violet, and musk.

Light Blue

Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana is another fragrance that’ll ensure you stay on people’s minds long after they’ve met you. Launched in 2001, this fragrance took its creator two years to complete. It is a unique, fresh, crisp, and fruity scent that brings the Mediterranean to mind. Some of its notes are jasmine, amber, and bamboo.
