It used to be that a girl’s first perfume was one of the hallmark’s of young womanhood. Of course, that was in the days of poodle skirts and saddle shoes, so a lot has changed since then. That first perfume might come sooner…and certainly doesn’t have the same significance as symbol of growing up. But one thing remains true. Girls like perfume.
Today, the only problem is which one to choose. Some scents are too heavy. Others are too floral. And many have too much of an “old lady” smell.
But fortunately there are some wonderful perfumes for high school girls that will give her that extra boost of self confidence. Here are ten fragrances to get you started.
10. J Lo Glow
A favorite with the high school and college set since 2002, J Lo Glow combines light florals and fresh citrus with the warmth of musk and vanilla for a fresh, summery fragrance that never overpowers. A wonderful choice for an afternoon out or heading to the Friday night game.
9. Viva la Juicy la Fleur
One of the newest scents from Juicy Couture, this fragrance combines fruity essences from wild berries, the sweetness of honeysuckle, gardenia and jasmine with warm overtones from vanilla and caramel. The result is a youthful, light perfume just perfect for a day at school or an evening on a special date.
8. Victoria’s Secret Love is Heavenly
This fragrance from Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels collection combines a tropical blend of orange zest, kiwi, orchid and mandarin flower with a subtle base of sandalwood, mahogany and musk. The result is a lasting scent that’s purely feminine, without being overly floral or heavy.
For the girl who loves the classics, Burberry Classic Perfume is a natural choice. This is an elegant, timeless scent without feeling the least bit stuffy or “old lady-ish.” The rich elements of bergemot, cedar and amber are lightened with a hint of lavender and mint. It’s a scent that will take her from freshman year of high school and all the way through college.
6. Crabtree and Evelyn Rosewater
Some girls prefer a simple, light floral instead of a complex blended perfume. That’s where the scents from Crabtree and Evelyn come in. Their Eau de Toilette collection offers simple, pure fragrances like rose, lily and lavender. These are perfume she can wear to school every day without overwhelming the person sitting next to her in class or on the bus. Just enough, never too much.
5. Miss Dior
Miss Dior has been the choice in first perfumes for high school girls for decades. The true romantic will still love the scent of Miss Dior, with its jasmine, patchouli and citrus blend. Dior began his fragrance line in the 1940s, and continues to offer a range of favorite perfumes for women of all ages.
4. Hearts and Daggers by Ed Hardy
If she’s an independant spirit, Ed Hardy’s Hearts and Daggers might be just the scent for her. This isn’t a classic blend — look for a daring mixture of blood orange, violet leaf, mango, apple and cashmire musk. But what else would you expect from a perfume as unique as an Ed Hardy work of art?
3. Chic by Celine Dion
Celine’s signature fragrance is the perfect choice to go with sundresses and a summer romance. Look for elements of watermelon, violets, lotus, gardenia, musk, and amber in this youthful scent just made for a girl looking for a subtle, lightly-sweet perfume.
2. Light Roll-on
What could express the innocence of youth and the hopefulness of young womanhood better than a perfume that blends scents into a lovely light scent called Sweet Pink Sugar? Sweet Pink Sugar manages to be sweet without being cloying, making it a perfect choice for any girl who wants a totally feminine scent for school, time with friends or a first date. Even better, it comes in a portable roll on, perfect for stashing in a backpack, locker or little clutch.
1. Custom blend
FOr the girl who likes to create her own style, Garden Botanika has the perfect scent solution: custom blended perfume. Let her choose up to three “notes” to create a perfume all her own.
The high school years are a bridge between childhood and adulthood. Finding her signature scent is just one way a young woman starts to define who she is.
