This post is all about the most feminine and elegant perfumes for women (that are NOT Coco Mademoiselle), and which are boyfriend-approved.
Let’s talk about one of my favorite topics – perfumes!
If you’re anything like me, (and I have a feeling you are ;)), wearing an elegant perfume is an absolute must for you and it’s that sophisticated finishing touch you bring to any outfit.
Using perfume is much more than just about smelling great. A good quality fragrance is known to enhance confidence, boost your mood or trigger beautiful memories. Not to mention, a known aphrodisiac.
I’m sure many of you have that one thing that you never leave the house without, like makeup for example. In my case, this is perfume.
I NEVER EVER walk out the door without making sure I’m wearing a nice fragrance. In the very rare cases when I happen to forget, you bet I am coming right back in just to apply it.
So, why “boyfriend approved” you might ask. At the end of the day, you can wear whatever fragrance you enjoy most. And that’s totally fine.
But, let’s face it, ladies, our partners are also the ones who often get to enjoy our perfumes, besides us. So I’d say their opinion matters, a little bit. 🙂
Whenever I test a new perfume, especially if I am not fully convinced, I run it by my boyfriend. His opinion is very helpful and often a make or break kind of deal. Believe me, you don’t want comments like “oh my mother uses this fragrance” or “this smells like an old lady”.
So let’s have a look at some of the most sophisticated and feminine perfumes to wear this spring, which will make you feel like a million dollars and 100% boyfriend approved.
You should know I decided to exclude on purpose Chanel Coco Mademoiselle from this list. It is such a classic and a statement fragrance, but I feel it’s already in ALL the best, most feminine perfumes lists so I wouldn’t be bringing you anything new.
Nevertheless, Coco Mademoiselle is one of my favorite perfumes and DEFINITELY boyfriend-approved. You can never go wrong with Chanel. 😉

Best Feminine Perfumes You Need In Your Collection This Spring
All these perfumes you will see below are currently in my collection and have been enjoying daily. I love having a few perfumes to alternate, depending on my mood each morning.
This is currently my new favorite fragrance! It has this “je ne sais quoi”, a certain sophistication to it, and I love that it’s a little bit different than the usual fragrances.
As Chanel describes it: an enhanced interpretation of the unexpected fruity-floral fragrance, CHANCE EAU TENDRE Eau de Parfum sweeps you into an intensified whirlwind of tenderness.
A constellation of enveloping notes of Jasmine Absolute and Rose Essence dazzles with an intoxicatingly soft and enveloping trail for a radiant and feminine scent.
A beautiful and uplifting perfume, perfect for those sunny days of spring. An instant mood booster if you ask me. (If you’re looking for a little “pick me up” check out these tips on how to make the best out of the lockdown or 5 books that will change your life in 2021).
As Guerlain describes it: Mon Guerlain is a tribute to today’s femininity. A strong, free and sensual femininity, inspired by Angelina Jolie.
With the Eau de Toilette Bloom of Rose, Mon Guerlain continues to explore the different facets of femininity, fulfillment and invites women to live each moment to the fullest. A composition that celebrates the joy of individuality and being yourself.
A favorite of many years, this is the ultimate FRESH fragrance for spring. Every time I wear I, I can almost see myself back in Paris, walking by the Seine or on the streets of Versailles a few years ago. Talk about memories trigger.
As Chanel describes it: a fresh, sparkling floral expression of CHANCE — a surge of energy that sweeps you into a whirlwind of happiness and fantasy.
A whirlwind of energy and vitality intertwines the zesty freshness of Citron with the softness of Jasmine and the vibrant presence of Teak Wood.
If you are looking for a sensual fragrance, this is definitely one to try!
Miss Dior is such a classic, sophisticated and feminine perfume. It’s often said about it that “this is what love smells like“. No need to reapply, this fragrance lasts ALL DAY LONG.
As Dior describes it: Miss Dior Eau de Parfum celebrates the beauty of a sensual Grasse Rose enveloped in fresh notes and woven with a lively Rosewood. Like a ribbon, fresh notes of Calabrian Bergamot wrap around the top notes. Its heart combines the beauty of Grasse Rose with the boldness of Damascus Rose. The base of Rosewood and Pink Pepper notes gives the composition character.
This is like sunshine in a bottle and one of the most uplifting and sensual fragrances I’ve ever owned.
It’s a pretty intense perfume, so be careful to not overdo it. 2 applications are sufficient and you will smell amazing the entire day.
As Chloe describes it: a floral love story, the Maison’s fresh and sensual Eau de Parfum opens the heart with stephanotis jasmine — the flower of happiness — and seduces with luminous orange blossom notes.
The unforgettable essence of seduction and freedom is finished with a padlock design to symbolise love and romance. A delicate ribbon knotted casually on the side complements the femininity of the pleated glass.
If you are a fan of Euphoria by Calvin Klein, you absolutely going to LOVE this new fragrance. A timeless, elegant, and feminine fragrance. Also, a boyfriend favorite. 😉
As Calvin Klein describes it: celebrating the multifaceted nature of femininity, Calvin Klein WOMEN fuses strength and freshness with fragility and sensuality. Playing with contrasts, it captures the essence of the feminine spirit with woody, floral tones.
