Best Chypre Floral Perfumes For Women

Here is my take on the best Chypre Floral perfumes to take your fragrance collection to the next level of daring.

1. Chloé Nomade Eau de Parfum

Review

Chloé Nomade Eau de Parfum is a modern Chypre Floral fragrance with an elegant balance of moss, wood and flowers, and was launched in 2008.

The opening is quite fruity, with a zesty trio of lemon, bergamot and orange colliding with sweet mirabelle. A heart of flowers soon emerges, especially freesia, supported by a touch of rose and jasmine.

Upon dry-down, oakmoss, patchouli and woody notes merge with the floral notes to bring the whole scent together. Settles into a wonderfully feminine Chypre Floral delight.

Ideal for autumn/winter/spring, this sublime scent will last 4+ hours with good sillage and projection.

Review

Estée Lauder Knowing Eau de Parfum is a classic smelling Chypre Floral fragrance launched in 1998. It sparkles with aldehydes and has beautiful bitter edges that allow it to stand out from the crowd.

A floral opening of rose and tuberose are balanced by bitter mimosa and nose-tingling aldehydes. Patchouli in the heart adds an earth muskiness as this fragrance develops.

Dry-down unleashes a wave of oakmoss and vetiver, with woody notes hovering in the background. Settles to a sparkling Chypre Floral with a vintage vibe. Recommended.

I would wear this during autumn/winter for more formal occasions as it feels elegant and special. Longevity of 8+ hours with enormous sillage and projection make this an incredible value Chypre Floral.

Review

Released in 1990, Sisley Eau du Soir Eau de Parfum is a beautiful fragrance with all the hallmarks of a Chypre Floral with the freshness of juniper.

The initial opening is sharp, with zesty orange and grapefruit leading the charge. The heart of this fragrance lets loose oakmoss, patchouli and fresh juniper, sprinkled with pepper. Powdery iris also blooms with a touch of green carnation.

Musk and amber in the base add depth. The whole composition settles to a classic Chypre Floral that is heavy on oakmoss, flowers and patchouli.

Best suited for autumn/winter as it will be too powerful for warmer weather. Lasts 8+ hours with excellent sillage and projection.

5. Sana Jardin Celestial Patchouli Eau de Parfum

Sana Jardin Celestial Patchouli Eau de Parfum

Review

As the name suggests, Sana Jardin Celestial Patchouli Eau de Parfum is a patchouli led Chypre Floral. I wanted to include this beauty to the list as it makes an excellent ‘gateway’ fragrance into the world of Chypre Floral as it is not so mossy.

The opening is warm and spicy with coriander seed leading to a floral heart of rose and osmanthus supported by powdery/iris smelling orris root.

Upon dry-down, earthy patchouli dominates. Spicy cyproil, sweet cinnamon and sensual woody notes bring out something genuinely feminine and classy.

I would wear this in autumn/winter and even creating into spring. You can expect 6+ hours of longevity with good projection and silage.

Top Notes:
