HOLIDAY SHOPPING GUIDE 2012 -- Best-Selling Women's Fragrances

Hey everyone! Today is Day 2 of my 5 day series where I show you a comprehensive holiday shopping guide based on my experience working in beauty retail!

Today I'm back with a selection of the top women's fragrances. These are staples that range from  classic to trendy and that any woman is sure to love. I have included a brief description of each one below the collage! For the fragrances, I won't be including prices because they are so subjective based on where you shop, whether you get an EDT or an EDP, and what size you get.

  1. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue -- Easily one of the most popular fragrances of the decade. Casual, crisp, and breezy, this fragrance has notes of lime and cedar.
  2. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle -- Perfect for the modern women. This fragrance has top notes of orange blossom and bergamot, middle notes of jasmine and Turkish rose, and base notes of tonka bean, vanilla, white musk, and patchouli.
  3. Philosophy Amazing Grace -- A light, floral fragrance. It has a musk base with notes of mandarin orange, grapefruit, bergamot, freesia, jasmine, and rose.
  4. Coach Poppy -- Poppy is a bright, sweet fragrance. It opens with notes of cucumber, mandarin, and freesia. Middle notes are jasmine, pink water lily, southern gardenia, and red candied rose petals. Base notes are cedar wood, sandalwood, vanilla, and marshmallow.
  5. Burberry Brit -- Another "classically modern" fragrance. This one has top notes of green lemon, frosted pear, and white almond. It has a heart of white peony, and dies down to vanilla, amber, and mahogany.
  6. Chanel No. 5 -- One of the most legendary fragrances of all time. Top notes of ylang-ylang, neroli, bergamot, and amalfi lemon. Middle notes of iris, jasmine, and lily-of-the-valley. Base notes of vetiver, musk, sandalwood, patchouli, amber, and vanilla.
