So, whether it’s reconstituted or a blend created in a lab, here are some of the best honeysuckle perfumes out there right now.
Best Honeysuckle Perfume
SJP NYC by Sarah Jessica Parker
It has the fruity fragrance. The top notes comprises of wild strawberries, Italian mandarin and white osmanthus. The heart contains honeysuckle, gardenia, mimosa and red Damascus rose with the base notes blend of rum, sandalwood, vanilla and creamy musk. Packaged in a stylish abstract print bottle, the fragrance is inspired by the character Carrie Bradshaw from the series Sex and the City played by Sarah Jessica Parker.
- light and fun fragrances,
- mature take on the sweet and fruity blend
- reformulated by new makers to an acidic scent
- moderate longevity.
This is a very mature floral, sweet perfume and you get a lot of honeysuckle in it. Some users have said that the rum accords have been ruined by putting it in a plastic bottle, but it’s still great never the less. They switched over to the rollerball version and absolutely loved it. Strawberries are what we smelled first and are pretty strong, but over time, it changes. This is when you get a play of white flowers, white musk, rum and the honeysuckle and finally the vanilla and citrus roll in. the longevity could have been a little better, but the dry down is what really makes this scent last and gets lighter.
Wonderstruck Taylor Swift
This is the first fragrance from the American pop – country singer sensation Taylor Swift in co-operation with Elizabeth Arden. Launched in 2011, it is a light and feminine fragrance is very gourmand with a lot of floral, fruity tones on a wooden foundation. The scent opens with notes of blackberry and raspberry, warm green tea, freesia and apple blossom. The middle notes are honeysuckle and white hibiscus along with smooth and creamy vanilla. The perfume is rounded out with the deeper base notes of musk, sandalwood, amber and peach.
- floral and fruity blend
- moderate longevity and sillage,
- discontinued and hard to find,
- too bland
We picked out the white tea accord right away and it lends a delicacy to the scent, along with the vanilla. The sensual, feminine nature is brought forward by the flowers. This blend is correct in every sense and with the kind of longevity it has, you can wear it daily. Wonderstruck is something that younger girls can wear, but those with more sophisticated tastes have said that it’s too bland and doesn’t stand out.
Still, the warm musk berry with white tea is pleasant, uncomplicated and powdery and very close to the Victoria’s Secret Love Spell.
Mary Kay Sparkling Honeysuckle
Sparkling Honeysuckle is a collection with four fragrances introduced in 2008 by Mary Kay. This feminine fragrance incorporates Bartlett pear, mandarin skin, honeysuckle, yellow freesia, iris root and woody aromas. An enchanting fragrance dominated by the captivating scent of an alluring flower. Sparkling Honeysuckle is a stroll through a sunlit garden.
- moderate longevity,
- moderate to heavy sillage
- Available only in 50ml,
- overpowering sweet notes
We got a whole lot of pear out of this one and is a light, happy daily use fragrance. As for the honeysuckle accord, it was a lot like Dior’s J-Adore. The only issue is that sweetness lent out by the freesia and the pear can overpower the honeysuckle. We think that this is an easy scent for teens or if you want to wear something simple for work and exceptionally good in the summer.
Paris Hilton Siren
Siren is light, creamy and heavy on the floral side.The idea was to create a luxurious, exotic, and subtle scent that is sophistication at the same time. The inspired behind it is the mystery and fantasy of the Siren myths.
So, it is reminiscent of a warm tropical breeze, gently blowing over sun-warmed skin. Top notes are frangipani flowers, peach, mandarin orange and a subtle sweetness of apricot nectar. Siren’s heart is composed of honeysuckle surrounded by the bouquet of rain forest orchid and budding lotus. Base notes are the while sandalwood, vanilla beans and muskfor mystery.
- moderate longevity,
- soft to moderate sillage
- summertime florals
- predominantly frangipani
- generic take on vanilla
Very close to Katy Perry’s Purr but much more floral and with the exception of peach. Then it becomes powdery in the middle whereas Purrtends to be more linear and lasts longer. This is definitely a summer perfume and has the right amount of sillage and longevity for hot summer days too.
Sweet apricots or peaches are what we got initially but it was also very fresh and citrusy. The floralsonly come in minutes later and is predominantly frangipani. The dry down is not as multifaceted though and is more vintage vanilla. Siren isn’t tacky, very mature and hard to hate. In spite of this odd blend of notes, Siren is very uncomplicated.
Gucci Bloom Acqua Di Fiori
Bloom Acqua Di Fiori from Gucci is theflanker for this brands original 2017 floral fragrance, and is the second perfume from Gucci house. It has this vivid, energetic and fresh character and the youthfulspontaneity and joythat friends share. Somewhat similar to Gucci Bloom, this scent takes on a spicy-floral nature, with top notes of cassis and galbanum leaf.
This has been sweetened out byheart composition of tuberose, jasmine and Chinese honeysuckle that is very green.The base is musky, woody for depth and warmth. Overall, the play goes from invigorating, radiant, lightly green and floral fragrance to one that becomes warm and seductive.
- moderate longevity
- moderate to soft sillage
- generic designer house scent profile that feels safe and has barely any variation form original
This is the only version of Bloom that’s green, fresh and crisp and excludes too much of tuberose and is for those who didn’t like the original. It does give it that full bodied scent and without it, the green would be too flat.
The first version was idyllic and ethereal, Bloom Acqua Di Fiori has more earthyaccords, with a very bohemian, dynamic feel and one of the few borderline chypre’s left.
Gucci Bloom Acqua Di Fiori is linear, simple, strong and long lasting and has hints of Gucci Envy. You only get to enjoy this sense of a wet, pine forest surrounded by water lilies before the dry down kicks in. then, it smells like the original and disappearssoon after.
